That seems like a bit of an overreaction to a tweet, but there you go. The Hill reported earlier Tuesday that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said the Democrats’ push to impeach the president was a distraction from the coronavirus threat — if President Trump wasn’t distracted, the mainstream media certainly was since it got wall-to-wall coverage while the president was assembling a coronavirus task force.

We don’t know if movie producer Judd Apatow read the story or not, but the tweet certainly set him off:
I think @senatemajldr and all of these politicians should be prosecuted when this is done for the lies which cost thousands of deaths. He knows Trump is a con man who lied to everyone to delay bad news and that led to thousands of additional deaths. They are all murderers. https://t.co/T0JPLOi8g0

If we’re trying people for the murder of thousands, we’re going to have to narrow down “all of these politicians” to a specific set of names.
Trump has broken these people https://t.co/Ze7NuEHV7Y

Hey Hollywood, why don't you just tuck yourself away until the adults in the room work on this REAL reality.
When it's over, we'll call you & ask you to do something special.
In the meantime, you're really just in the way; like a gnat… https://t.co/6UbCDDXfRJ

Judd, you have got to be kidding with your slander. You don't really believe your media buddies do you? It's time you and people like you wake up. Our media and politicians have sold you down the river! https://t.co/6LVsIwu6LA https://t.co/gGbZx64Ol8

Except for one crucial fact of viral spread and what none of you seem to understand about flattening the curve, the overall number of infected doesnt change, just the timeframe in which they do. Sit and spin moron, and maybe petition against a bigger killer like abortion. https://t.co/CoElIBR3JB

Why give China a pass? Their government is the source of this Pandemic; they lied about it and withheld significant information about it. Then they extorted us when we needed medical equipment from them. They MUST be prosecuted. Then we can look at our own subversives

We as a nation must unite to contain, control and ultimately defeat the viruses, parasites and contagions that plague us. I speak, of course, of Hollywood liberals living in their little make believe worlds, who have absolutely no understanding of reality.
