[See NewsBusters for more.] When the media is not blaming President Trump for all that is not well in the world, they are blaming Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. On her Monday MSNBC show, Andrea Mitchell was joined by Jane Mayer where the two lamented how, unlike Nancy Pelosi, McConnell has responded to the COVID-19 panic with a lack of seriousness.
Ignoring that just last week Democrats blocked a McConnell proposal to replenish the small business loan pool, Mitchell led off the segment declaring, "Democrats on Capitol Hill have hit a wall in their efforts to expand the emergency aid to states and small businesses. That wall, many report, is set at Republican leader Mitch McConnell, who is calling for half the spending after blaming impeachment for the lackluster response to COVID-19."
