Trump Torches Mitch McConnell

On Wednesday, President Trump called for Republicans to kick Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) from his post as Senate minority leader, claiming the senator is a “pawn for the Democrats.”

The Hill reports:

In a statement, Trump cited a Wednesday story from The Federalist about McConnell and his wife Elaine Chao’s alleged ties to China in calling for the senator’s ouster from his longtime leadership post.

“Mitch McConnell is not an Opposition Leader, he is a pawn for the Democrats to get whatever they want,” Trump said in his statement. “He is afraid of them, and will not do what has to be done. A new Republican Leader in the Senate should be picked immediately!”

Trump has feuded with McConnell, who he has dubbed “Old Crow,” since the Senate leader denounced the former president in Congress for his role in the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the U.S. Capitol.

Over the weekend, the former president slammed McConnell for making remarks last week about “candidate quality,” in a reference to Republicans running for Senate, a number of whom were hand-picked by Trump. McConnell has said the race for Senate control in November will be close.

I personally believe in term limits and it’s time for Mitch to go. I realize the US Senate /Senators consider themselves a bunch of elitists, but they need to start playing hardball and not worry about retaining their cushy position.

I agree with you. The American public have been clamoring for term limits in Congress for the past thirty years plus. Do they listen: NO! Republicans and Democrats do not wish to hear the public when it concerns their lucrative scheme of getting rich on the taxpayers money. How would you like to have a job which considers your own pay raises, determine what your tenure will be? Like making your own rules for yourself with no boss. Nowadays, every election can be subjected to cheating; it has already proven itself. In 2020, how do you like when they stopped the counting in states that were noteworthy at 10pm at night? These Demorats are corrupt and any Republican that does not fight against them needs to retire or be kicked out of office.

Sadly, there is a substantial element of truth to Trump’s claim. Yes, the delay resulting in Garland failing to become a SC Justice was huge. So was getting Barrett approved. Instead, he’s allowed the latent Republican Mortie Meekle mindset to prevent what should be all out attack to suppress and rid the nation of this socialist onslaught. How many times have you watch NFL games where teams surrender winning tactics and go into ‘prevent defense’ that usually ends up with them losing?

Mitch McConnell and his wife, Elaine Chou are the subject of a very damming article in “The Bongino Report”. McConnell is wealthy because of his father-in-law’s $$$$$ connections with the Communist Chinese Party and Government. Just to read it makes one sick to know that McConnell is in anyway a political leader in the United States. He is just as serious a danger and traitor to the United States as the Biden Crime Family.

Put the old turtle (Wangbedong) for Elaine out to pasture. As soon as possible. And put Ted Cruz in the position instead. ZAs for the House get rid of Kevin McCarthy and put Jim Jordan instead.

There’s no doubt that McConnell doesn’t represent the American citizen in the way that Trump aligned Republicans do. I left the Republican Party for a few years due to the attitudes of Republican politicians such as McConnell. I came back because of Trump.
