There are plenty of deranged commentaries and perspectives being disgorged by today’s Republican Party. Most notable is their unflinching support for the Donald Trump led assault on Congress by his legions of insurrectionists. But while that may top the charts of heinous activities by the self-serving, power-hungry, violent extremists who belong to the Cult of Trump, it isn’t the only example of their bizarre and dangerous behavior.

On Monday morning Ronna McDaniel, Trump’s hand-picked chair of the Republican National Committee, tweeted a message that truly stretches the boundaries of sanity:
We now know of two entities that should be forever remembered for covering up and promoting falsified virus data that worsened the pandemic: Communist China and Andrew Cuomo.
— Ronna McDaniel (@GOPChairwoman) February 15, 2021
REALLY? The entities that should (and will) be “forever remembered for worsening the pandemic” begin first and foremost with Donald Trump himself. He spent months downplaying the gravity of the coronavirus as nothing more than the common flu. Even though he knew that it was far more deadly. He was recording saying so in the book, RAGE, by Bob Woodward:
“Trump called Woodward and revealed that he thought the situation was far more dire than what he had been saying publicly. ‘You just breathe the air and that’s how it’s passed,’ Trump said in a Feb. 7 call. ‘And so that’s a very tricky one. That’s a very delicate one. It’s also more deadly than even your strenuous flu.'”
“At that time, Trump was telling the nation that the virus was no worse than a seasonal flu, predicting it would soon disappear, and insisting that the U.S. government had it totally under control.” […]
“Trump admitted to Woodward on March 19 that he deliberately minimized the danger. ‘I wanted to always play it down,’ the president said.”
In addition to Trump, the other entities that will be most remembered for worsening the pandemic are Fox News, that fervently backed up Trump’s lies, and the Republican Party that McDaniel heads. Naturally McDaniel is feigning outrage for allegations that she can’t even support with actual evidence. It’s just another lame and futile attempt project blame for their own failures unto others.
