Profiles in “courage,” Congresscreature-style.
Senator Mitch McConnell used the Senate floor to brutally trash Donald Trump after the former president was found not guilty at the impeachment trial.
The speech was so unhinged that it could have just as easily came from Nancy Pelosi.
McConnell did not hold back as he ripped Trump apart for a “disgraceful dereliction of duty” and attempting to “overturn the election.”
He claimed that the protesters stormed the Capitol because they had been “fed wild falsehoods by the most powerful man on earth,” and that Trump was “practically and morally responsible for provoking the events of the day.”
“There’s no question – none – that President Trump is practically and morally responsible for provoking the events of the day,” McConnell said.
McConnell went on to say that “this was an intensifying crescendo of conspiracy theories” by a president who seemed determined to overturn the will of the voters or “torch” institutions on the way out.
The anti-Trump Republican did vote “not guilty” before giving the ridiculous speech.
The “man” is a piece of shit—loathsome, execrable, vile, bereft of any redeeming quality. Him, and all his fellows. The day their filthy carcasses become Mordor On The Potomac lamppost decorations can’t come soon enough to suit me. But wait, it gets even worse, if you can believe it.
Never forget what the establishment thinks of the base https://t.co/sYuioPzBbo

Fucking scum. I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again: for someone belonging to a class of people who are supposedly scared to death of We The People, Yertle McTurtle sure seems awfully confident of his armor-plated invulnerability, don’t he? It’s apparent to me that, however afraid they might or might not be, they aren’t afraid enough.
