Republicans Flee Questions On Trump’s COVID Lies

Mediaite reports:

A multitude of reporters on Capitol Hill tweeted out their progress on Wednesday — or lack thereof — as they tried to get Republican lawmakers to react to President Donald Trump’s recorded admission that he downplayed the coronavirus.

As the United States nears 200,000 coronavirus deaths, Woodward’s tape on Trump’s virus downplaying became an instant flashpoint among the political press.

When reporters tried to get congressional Republican reactions, however, many of them deflected questions, offered tepid defenses of Trump, or just ignored inquiries altogether.
