Senator Tom Cotton has been a target of the left over the last couple of months. Primarily, it’s because of his comments early on in the coronavirus epidemic.
“I suspect that months from now or perhaps even years from now, when people look back at this time, coronavirus will be considered the bigger story than impeachment,” the senator continued. “I hope that’s wrong. I hope that we can get this epidemic under control before it reaches our shores in wide and far-reaching numbers.
Why was he being attacked for being cautious early on?
Impeachment was the plan back in January and February – when this pandemic was just starting to blow up. Senator Cotton says that, at the time, Congress was more focused on impeachment than this outbreak.
