Donald Trump’s dishonest and corrupt handling of the coronavirus crisis means he’s committing negligent homicide against tens of thousands of Americans. Anyone aiding and abetting him in this is just as guilty. One of Trump’s key co-conspirators is House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, who has repeated Trump’s lies in lockstep.
Kevin McCarthy tried to steer blame away from Donald Trump by putting it all on China:
Imagine what the world would look like if Communist China had not tried to cover up the coronavirus. It could have been contained. Lives could have been saved. Businesses could have stayed open.
China’s lies changed the course of history.

The trouble is, this tweet would be just as true if you replaced “China” with “Trump.” Kevin McCarthy was promptly ripped to pieces for his hypocrisy:
Imagine what the world would look like if an American President hadn't fired the entire CDC pandemic response team in 2018.
Or fired the people in China looking out for a pandemic in 2019.
Or had taken action when warned this was coming in January.
