    This is why lifelong conservatives are turning on the GOP. Their cavalier treatment of the ordinary American, and their enthusiasm for conspiracy theories have turned them into a party I can probably never trust again.

    I think its a good thing that Josh Hawley removed his hood. Its good to know!

  5. The worst ever Senate Majority Leader and POTUS.

  6. Term limits for tyrannical turtles!

    • The TLTT Act.

      @bonecrayon yea because government funded oxygen thieves like you voted for a demented kid sniffing despot.

    • @Nicholas Gonzales I’m not receiving a cent from the govt. You support a man that “partied” with Epstein. You’re a hypocrittical uneducated hillbilly. Blind to the facts. Oblivious to reality. How about you put on your big-boy pants and start acting like an adult. Trump is a one-term loser. A rascist, masogonist, xenophobic, sociopathic narcissist. But you keep drinking that cool-aid. DERP. 🥴🥴🥴🤦🏼‍♂️

    • @bonecrayon to

    • @Eileen Brn what?

  7. we call those guys crash test dummies in the prison that is all he is to trump

  8. This turtle is miserable, we should all Americans protest so that he resigns, we urgently need a leader who has compassion who stands on the side of the people. it’s a disgusting human

  9. Any further attempts to challenge this election should be considered treason and a coup! Punishable by LAW!

  10. McConnell will try to just ignore bringing the $2,000 stimulus to the floor for a vote just like he’s ignoring the needs of the American people typical and ironic

      Just like Nancy Pelosi, right??
      America needs to flush ALL THESE so called politions…. Down the tube, they send us…

    • Ignoring the needs of the American people? If the Democrats cared about the American people the $2000 dollars should have been in the bill in the first place. In fact if they cared more about the American people they could have easily doubled that had they not included so much pork barrel special interest crap in it for their big money foreign friends. More money
      in it for foreign countries than the American people. But that’s ok you all just keep believing the crap coming from MSNBC.

    • And this man is now doing that for 6 decades 👎☹️👿😡

    • @Wes Hawkins the democrats did have $2000 in the original bill but republicans wouldn’t accept it…go watch the full debate about the stimulus because all democrats asked for was the chance at a vote and all republicans cared about was getting liability protection for corporations so they can’t be sued if someone gets covid from being a worker or customer

    • @Wes Hawkins that’s BS the Dems and Pelosi have asked for more about 2 trillion more just like they gave the corporations..every other country in the world played their citizens to stay home

  11. I really want to see those GOP members that are trying to destroying our democracy charged with sedition.

    Can someone just put Mitch in his timeout chair so we can get this done?

    • Maureen Peterson | December 31, 2020 at 1:06 AM | Reply

      Apparently Georgia can – but will they!

    • @Maureen Peterson Those two Democrats win Georgia and we are going to see a whole new flurry of lawsuits alleging voter fraud. In the minds of these people a Republican has to win or it’s voter fraud.

  13. I’ve written to my senator Hawley that he is committing a crime under the influence of drugs that have diminished his intelligence, embarrassing the people of Missouri. (Those are three topics on his list of topics)

    • He’s not even from Missouri, he lives in Virginia and is using his sister’s residence, so that’s something to be investigated on right there

    • @Lonestar No way!! How do we prove that? That’s how to get him expelled from the Senate. We need to get an investigative reporter, with balls, on it and run the story everywhere!

    • @Toni Aguilar go to the MSNBC YouTube, they talk him and Joy Reid mentions that he’s from Virginia

      Hopefully you can find the clip on the internet somewhere if you can’t find it on YouTube

    • @Lonestar ok, I’ll look. Thx. People who live in Missouri are who will have the most standing to take action against him….and Senate itself.

    • @Lonestar So nice of Virginia to send a guy to the people of Missouri to represent them in the Senate! Just how our democracy is supposed to work, isn’t it.

    His wife net worth alone is 30 million his net worth is 70 million together they are worth 100million. So why do he care if Americans eat

  15. Why do you give this power to one man? These are traitors.

    • the u. s. is, actually, ruled by 3 separate dictators. one in the whitehouse, and one in each chamber of congress. the “majority” leaders in each congressional chamber have absolute power to determine what and if ANY bill is voted on. that’s not a democracy, its a dictatorship – three, independent autocratic rulers in 2 branches of govt. it ain’t supposed to work this way but that’s how its workin.

    • This is a stupid game, when Lincoln was elected there were Senators that did not want to acknowledge him and they were ejected as traitors. This iis an attack on the Constitution just like when they all signed the Texas Lawsuit. IN the Constitution It states traitors cannot hold a government position and what they did is exactly like what happened with Lincoln. Will you people act or America is going to turn on all of you.Pelosi and Schumer knows this and they can get rid of Mitch and 126 GOP members. Traitors cannot hold office. everyone read the constitution and then call all these fakes and tell them to do their jobs.WE Americans need to untie and stop this stupid game of theirs.

    • its not fair man…not fair.. and all the idiots that vote these types of people INTO OFFICE, should be put down along with them, or at least have their voting rights taken away… (just like the biden voters…anyone who can’t make a decent decision who to vote fore, is a risk and should be voting.)

    Who is this Hawley??? A nobody who wants to make s name for himself at the Zero hour!!! Smh

  17. The very minute this motion by Senator Holloway is rejected, the Homeland security should handcuff him and frog marched to nearest prison to await charges of sedition and insurgency.

  18. Georgia please vote blue and put Mitch McAhole in a corner of shame.

    • You’ve got 6 more years of McConnell regardless of what goes down in GA. He won his re-election in a landslide. The state with 10 of the poorest counties in the Top 20 Poorest Counties in the nation, and they just keep re-electing him. Poor people who consistently vote against their own interests, you can’t fix stupid…’s not that they don’t know he will screw them, they know full well and vote for him anyway.

  19. GA we need you,Vote Blue and send the turtle back into his shell!! Blue 💙 Blue 💙 Blue 💙

  20. Why should McConnell care about anyone? He is still getting paid.

    • more than getting paid,…he is probably RICH AF… and wouldnt qualify for the stimulus anyways, so exactly HE DONT CARE… so lets just screw everyone who does qualify… he is a spittin image of a SCUM BAG POS that doesnt deserve to work for this country
