Schumer the hypocrite blasts Trump for ‘slow response’ to coronavirus BUT had no problem ditching swine flu funding

Someone should remind the New York Schmuck that the Internet always remembers

By Jon Dougherty

(TNS) It’s an old joke but it’s so very fitting when it comes to Sen. Charles Schumer, New York Democrat: You can always tell he’s lying when his lips are moving.



The Senate Minority Leader — and let’s keep him that way in November, shall we? — took to the floor of the chamber on Wednesday to spew one falsehood after another about the Trump administration’s “slow response” to the coronavirus.



“Unfortunately, we are only just beginning to see the necessary seriousness and mobilization of resources from the federal government,” Schumer said.

“Sadly, unfortunately, and with awful consequences, this administration took far too long to wake up to this global crisis,” he said.

“It has wasted precious weeks in downplaying the severity of the coronavirus-weeks that could have been spent in earnest in the preparation of building our testing capacity,” said Schumer.

“As a result, the United States continues to lag behind other countries in the number and the percentage of the population we are testing,” he said.

“Stories of Americans who feel sick and show symptoms but who are unable to access coronavirus tests appear every day in every single newspaper,” Schumer said.

“Warnings of the potential shortages of masks, hospital beds, and ventilators appear in the paper every day,” he said.

“In 2 weeks, the issue of ventilators and ICU beds will be like the issue of tests today,” he predicted. “In other words, 2 or 3 weeks ago, many of us were saying to get those tests out. A month ago, people were saying it, and now we are seeing the consequences-lockdowns because we can’t test people.

“We don’t know who has the virus and who doesn’t,” Schumer said. “The same crisis will be occurring in a few weeks. Mark our words.”

Yada. Yada. Yada. There’s just one problem with Sen. Schmuck’s rant: There is little truth to it.

Recall that in late January President Trump was already convening a task force — which CNN complained about because it lacked “diversity” (as though ‘diversity’ somehow translates into ‘talent’ and ‘knowledge’).

One of the first things the president did in response to the widening outbreak was cut off travel from China, the epicenter of COVID0-19. That move in and of itself has been widely praised as having prevented far more Americans from contracting the virus at a much sooner date. Ditto for his subsequent travel ban on Europe.

Since then, Trump and his administration have been daily reacting to the situation on the ground as well as anticipating the worst by declaring a national emergency, implementing isolation guidelines, and ordering the production of necessary medical supplies ramped up.

As for Sen. Schmuck and his lame complaints, back in 2009 when he was the Senate point man for pushing through President Obama’s massive economic stimulus plan in response to the Great Recession (that didn’t work), he was just fine with stripping out hundreds of millions in funding for Swine flu pandemic preparations just to get the recovery bill passed, as reported by the CS Monitor:

The spread of the swine flu is casting new light on a compromise deal to cut $850 million in pandemic preparedness from the Obama administration’s economic recovery package. …

Those involved with proposing the cut have found themselves on the defensive, particularly Sen. Susan Collins (R) of Maine. She negotiated cutting pandemic preparedness funding from the stimulus plan as part of a compromise deal.

But she was hardly alone in singling out pandemic preparedness as unnecessary back in February. Democrats were fighting for every vote they could muster to pass the president’s economic recovery plan. In a bid to rally more GOP votes for the plan, Sen. Charles Schumer (D) of New York reminded reporters before the Feb. 10 vote that that “all those little porky things that the House put in,” including money for the flu pandemic, were out.

‘Little porky things.’

Amnesia is symptomatic of most politicians but the Commiecrats have a very severe case of it. BTW back in January Schumer had the President and the Senate tied up in its silly impeachment charade rather than allowing the business of the country to proceed.

As I recall, Hunchback Schumer and Nanny Pelosi were the chief opponents to Build that Wall and Close the Borders. Vote the scumbag out of office New York. Look how many cases of the Wuhan Virus he allowed China to export to the State of New York, all under his watch. Maybe impeaching Trump was a failed exercise which Schumer and Pelosi chose to do at the genesis of the corona virus. I believe that both should be held accountable for obstruction of the Trump Administration during the midst of a health crisis.
