Lordy, there’s tapes: susceptible Senate Republicans squirm over Trump’s coronavirus confession


“I have never learn it, I have never seen it, so give me an opportunity to have a look,” Ernst instructed CNN’s Manu Raju of the revelations in Bob Woodward’s newest ebook, Rage.

Discover what Ernst did not say, she hadn’t heard it. Yep, there’s tapes and that is a giant a part of what makes this so sticky for Ernst and all her GOP colleagues struggling to carry on to energy. Keep in mind, earlier this yr all of them strapped themselves irrevocably to Trump after they voted to acquit him of impeachment expenses with out listening to from a single witness. They did not care that Trump was willfully corrupting U.S. elections with a purpose to win a second time period, and now that he has intentionally introduced demise and destruction to the American folks, they’re both turning a blind eye or simply working for the hills, à la Ernst.

Texas Sen. John Cornyn laughably pooh-poohed the reporting from arguably essentially the most well-known journalist of a era who backed up his account with recordings of Trump himself. “I haven’t got any confidence within the reporting, so I am not going to remark,” said Cornyn, who’s obtained a 9-point benefit over his Democratic challenger M.J. Hegar, according to Real Clear Politics. Sorry, however on the danger redundancy, there’s f’ing tapes. Cornyn might as nicely simply say he does not have any confidence in Trump himself, since Trump’s the one who privately instructed Woodward again in early February how “lethal” the coronavirus was.

And North Carolina Sen. Thom Tillis, who’s trailing his Democratic challenger, steered that Trump’s pandemic response has been proper on the nostril.

“Whenever you’re in a disaster you have to strike the fitting stability (to not create) a panic,” Tillis instructed CNN’s Raju. Tillis apparently thinks 190,000 American deaths and counting is “the fitting stability.”

All these spineless GOP lawmakers stay extra involved about their reelection bids than the toll their craven silence has taken and continues to tackle the nation. Unconscionably sociopathic.
