Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) just made it official. His major announcement from the Senate floor is turning heads as the news spreads nationwide.
McConnell has some words for the Democrats and their media allies calling him “Moscow Mitch” after he blocked a blatantly partisan election bill, and it’s one of the most glorious takedowns ever. He won’t stand for the left’s grandstanding.
In a blistering speech, McConnell called out the attacks against him as “modern-day McCarthyism” and set the record straight on his proven opposition to Russian interference.
“Last week I stopped Democrats from passing an election law bill through the Senate by unanimous consent, a bill that was so partisan that it only received one Republican vote over in the House,” said McConnell. “So I objected.”
McConnell then noted that as a result of his actions, he has been called “unpatriotic, un-American, and essentially treasonous by a couple of left-wing pundits on the basis of bold-faced lies,” even though the facts say otherwise.
“I was accused of aiding and abetting the very man I’ve singled out as an adversary and opposed for nearly 20 years, Vladimir Putin,” he said, while also making the point that “even the New York Times” rose to his defense this time.
Between MSNBC’s resident RINO, Joe Scarborough, calling McConnell “Moscow Mitch,” and the Democrats trying to make him out to be some kind of pro-Russia puppet, it is obvious that he’s had enough of the games.
