ABC Accuses Maskless GOP in Capitol Of Giving Democrats COVID

After CBS went out of their way to slander a maskless GOP congressman who helped protect his Democrat colleagues from violent insurrectionists last week during the Capitol Hill riot, ABC went all-in on mask-shaming on Tuesday’s Good Morning America as well.

ABC’s White House Correspondent Mary Bruce gleefully touted Democrats’ nasty and reckless accusations against their Republican colleagues, causing a “superspreader event” while sheltering in place during the riot:

And this morning other horrific fallout from this riot. The spread of COVID. At least two members of congress have now tested positive after being forced to shelter in place in close quarters. One of them, Democratic congresswoman Jayapal, is blaming her Republican colleagues who she said ‘cruelly refused to wear a mask and recklessly mocked colleagues when offered them.’

“Now George, she wants those Republicans to be fined,” Bruce gushed. Anchor George Stephanopoulos was all on board with Jayapal’s bitter accusation: “Could be a superspreader event on top of everything else!” he whined.

While ABC did not show video of which Republicans Jayapal was referring to, CBS last night and again, this morning, showed video of Oklahoma Rep. Markwayne Mullin, not wearing a mask, as if to suggest he was one of the dastardly Republicans responsible for giving the two Democrats COVID-19. Mullin helped protect his colleagues from violent rioters breaking into the chamber last Wednesday, but it seems Democrats and their media fearmongers think armed insurrectionists threatening to kill you aren’t as scary as catching COVID.

Later on Good Morning America today, George Stephanopoulos kept up the Republican attacks when speaking to Health and Human Services Secretary, Alex Azar. He repeatedly pushed Azar on supporting the 25th Amendment:

STEPHANOPOULOS: ….[A]s you know the House is asking Vice President Pence and members of the Trump cabinet to invoke the 25th Amendment…Do you believe the President is able to discharge the powers and duties of his office?

(…)

STEPHANOPOULOS: [I] repeat the question, do you believe what the President did last week shows he is able to discharge the duties of his office or not?

(…)

STEPHANOPOULOS: Have you had discussions about the 25th Amendment with either other cabinet members or the Vice President?

After condemning the attacks last week, and Trump’s rhetoric, Azar repeatedly declined to share his private conversations with fellow cabinet members to the frustrated ABC anchor.

Good Morning America

1/12/2021

MARY BRUCE: And this morning other horrific fallout from this riot. The spread of COVID. At least two members of congress have now tested positive after being forced to shelter in place in close quarters. One of them, Democratic congresswoman Jayapal, is blaming her Republican colleagues who she said ‘cruelly refused to wear a mask and recklessly mocked colleagues when offered them.’ Now George, she wants those Republicans to be fined.

GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: Could be a superspreader event on top of everything else.

(…)

STEPHANOPOULOS: Let’s bring in HHS Secretary Alex Azar. Secretary Azar, thank you for joining us. I want to get to the vaccine but you are also a member of the President’s cabinet so I have to ask you as you know the House is asking Vice President Pence and members of the Trump cabinet to invoke the 25th Amendment. That says that the President should be removed if the vice president and a majority of the cabinet declare that the President is, quote, ‘unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office.’ Do you believe the President is able to discharge the powers and duties of his office?

(…)

 Those rioters as you know were encouraged by the president which is why he’s set to be impeached tomorrow which is why the House is asking for you and the Vice President to invoke the 25th Amendment so I repeat the question, do you believe what the President did last week shows he is able to discharge the duties of his office or not?

(…)

One more question on this though. You say you won’t discuss the 25th Amendment here. Have you had discussions about the 25th Amendment with either other cabinet members or the Vice President?
