In spite of his attempts to project images to the contrary, you could probably fit the amount of “leadership” Sen. Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) has shown over the stalemate on the Wuhan coronavirus relief bill into a thimble.

And while there has been no shortage of Republicans in the House and Senate who have been willing to step up and blast both Schumer and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) over their 11th hour political stunts to stall the bill over a progressive wish list that has nothing to do with providing relief to working Americans and and businesses, Sen. Tom Cotton has turned into one of their most prominent and vocal Republican critics.

He’s explained in Twitter threads exactly what kind of games they’re up to in the middle of a pandemic, and has also taken to the Senate floor to blast their senseless delay tactics at a time when the American people need relief NOW.

After hearing on Tuesday that Schumer was claiming Democrats and Republicans were close to coming to an agreement on a bill, Cotton again took to the Twitter machine to translate:

Sounds about right.

Sadly, Democrats appear to have plans to do no such thing. Here we are, a day later, and it looks like Democrats are pumping the brakes on an agreement once again.

Shameful.
