Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) followed the trend set by fellow Democrats of exonerating China and the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) of any fault for the spread of COVID-19. In an appearance with CNN’s Anderson Cooper, Sen. Murphy deems China innocent:
Despite its coronavirus lies, Democrat Senator Chris Murphy says China is blameless:— Trump War Room - Text TRUMP to 88022 (@TrumpWarRoom) April 15, 2020

Many Democrats seem constitutionally incapable of admitting that China covered up this plague and deserve any blame whatsoever https://t.co/LodIOTsTul— Saagar Enjeti (@esaagar) April 15, 2020
Make no mistake, this spiel from Sen. Murphy is an attempt to gaslight the American people into blaming the Trump Administration for a virus that originated in China. Sen. Murphy shows no nuance in fully exonerating China, and his take is completely out of touch with reality. It is virtually irrefutable that the CCP lied about the stature of the coronavirus, and with the help of the World Health Organization (WHO), the CCP was able to cover up the real statistics, including the number of deaths, caused by the virus.
The American people see through Democratic talking points, and overwhelmingly disagree with Sen. Murphy’s refusal to hold China accountable for their actions. An early April Harris poll shows that 67 percent of Democrats credit China for COVID-19, along with 75 percent of Independents and 90 percent of Republicans.
Democrats continue to prove that they will cover for a communist regime, one that has taken countless American lives, as an opportunity to criticize the Trump Administration.
