CHARLES HURT (OPINION EDITOR, THE WASHINGTON TIMES): And to me, one of the most absurd examples is the thing that's happened in the last couple of days, where you have Chuck Schumer, you have Nancy Pelosi, going after President Trump, claiming that he's not taking the coronavirus seriously, because of how much money he asked for from Congress. These are people who have spent three years lying about — making up fantasies about Russia, and hookers, and hotel rooms, and they spent the last six months impeaching a president in a case they knew they were never going to win and they were never going to remove him.

All the while, this pandemic was growing, in the middle of all the impeachment, and then they're going to stop and accuse the president of not taking coronavirus seriously enough? And then the press writes it, and you have headlines about this? It's lunacy, it's absolute lunacy.
