Republicans are doing their best to rewrite history about what has taken place over the past two years of COVID. This week, Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton made the spurious claim that Donald Trump would have prevented the supply chain issues that are currently taking place under Joe Biden. In an appearance on Laura Ingraham’s Fox News program, Cotton said “you know we’ve had this pandemic for two years, Laura. I don’t remember inflation or supply chain shortages or labor shortages that we’ve seen this year in the first year of the pandemic. What changed? Joe Biden and the Democrats took power in January.” This is a complete and total deception by Tom Cotton. In the early stages of the pandemic, many businesses were shut down. There was an abundance of labor only because it was determined to be too unsafe for people to be working. Inflation also grew in the Trump administration in part because there were huge government spending bills to soften the blow of the economic hit. Most absurd of all is Cotton’s suggestion that there were no shortages under Trump. Everyone remembers the run on toilet paper, paper towels, hand sanitizer, soap, and certain grocery items as people panic bought in March and April of 2020. Republicans didn’t blame Trump for the mess that took place last year, but all of the sudden they have determined that Biden is to blame.
