It’s been interesting to see how Hollywood has handled the COVID situation.
When celebrities aren’t busy filming quarantine videos from their mega-mansions, they busy themselves by criticizing President Trump and other Republicans.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is the latest victim of Hollywood elites. Earlier this week, McConnell stated that the impeachment trials distracted Congress from focusing on the impending coronavirus outbreak. It’s certainly a fair assessment for McConnell to hold because both Congress and the media were consumed with impeachment during the month of January.
Judd Apatow, famous filmaker and director, wasn’t having it.
Take a look at his response to McConnell:
Fox News had this to say about Apatow's statement:
"He knows Trump is a con man who lied to everyone to delay bad news and that led to thousands of additional deaths,” Apatow added. “They are all murderers.”
McConnell blamed Democrats for pushing forward with the impeachment of Trump in January, which distracted the Trump administration as the virus began rapidly spreading around the world.
“It came up while we were tied down in the impeachment trial. And I think it diverted the attention of the government because everything every day was all about impeachment,” McConnell said during a radio interview on “The Hugh Hewitt Show.”
McConnell gave credit to Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., for paying attention to the severity of the outbreak at a time when the Senate as a whole was occupied.
"He was first, and I think Tom was right on the mark. And it came up while we were tied down on the impeachment trial," McConnell said on the radio program. "And I think it diverted the attention of the government, because everything every day was all about impeachment. But Tom figured this out early, and he was absolutely right."
Of course, people were quick to respond to Apatow's tweet:
Over at Breitbart, they had this to add:
Indeed, as Breitbart’s Joel Pollak has reported, Congressional Democrats were focused on their impeachment trial while coronavirus was spreading from China to the United States. President Trump also declared a national health emergency in January and imposed a ban on travel to and from China.
Of course, Judd Apatow failed to mention these facts.
It is not the first time the 40-Year-Old Virgin director has accused Trump of murder. Last year, Apatow said Trump’s skepticism of climate alarmism was equivalent to “murdering our children.”
“We are murdering our children,” he wrote at the time. “It’s as simple as that. The President could care less.”
The 52-year-old has previously said that Trump is both a terrorist and a Nazi.
“He’s a Nazi. He wants no judicial process. He kidnapped children and commits acts of violence for political gain and to support his racist views,” he ranted back in 2018. “He admires violent dictators. Trump is a Nazi. The debate is over. Soon we will have proof he is a Nazi supported by the Russians.”
Apatow of course is not backing down from his criticism of the President and McConnell. In fact, today he was back at his tweeting game today. Check out what he posted:
