Democrats, like Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) and Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY), who distracted the nation from the coronavirus outbreak threat by leading a media-hyped “faux quest” to remove President Donald Trump from office via impeachment, must ask themselves if the harm they caused was worth their political gain, pundit and commentator Geraldo Rivera said Wednesday.

River tweeted that impeachment-crazed Democrats must eventually face up to how their impeachment media circus distracted the country from preparing for and combating the deadly coronavirus outbreak:

“All the heroes of #Impeachment; @RepAdamSchiff, @RepJerryNadler etc. must at some point ask themselves whether their efforts were worth it given the high probability the faux quest pre-occupied the nation & distracted our attention from #CoronavirusOutbreak”

On Tuesday, Rivera tweeted a timeline of how Democrats’ impeachment efforts coincided with the coronavirus outbreak:

  • “House Dems led by @RepAdamSchiff Impeached @realDonaldTrump on Dec18-as #coronavirus got #Wuhan foothold.”
  • “Senate trial Jan16th to 31st-same day @POTUS imposed #ChinaTravelBan.”
  • “Trump Acquitted Feb 5th”

“Was Trump distracted by Impeachment? Yes! So were you & I & #WaPo #NYTimes et al,” Rivera concluded.

In another Tuesday tweet, Rivera encouraged Americans to “Get over” their fears that the media will attack them if they publicly defend or praise Trump’s fruitful efforts to protect the country from the coronavirus:

“supporters of @realDonaldTrump often embarrassed to defend or praise his actions for fear media will accuse them of being right wing sycophants. Get over it. His odious travel restrictions vs #China worked to slow spread, His social distancing & search for magic bullet ongoing.”
