  1. Mitch saving democracy – wouldn’t have believed that it would ever be politically advantageous for him, but sometimes lady fortuna throws you a bone.

    1. @Taylor Fox If you don’t think most conservatives are hard working Americans that were affected by 2008 recession and jobs moving to China and most are good people then so much for Unity buddy

    2. @Aztec Blood unity comes after accountability.

      Precedent and history will poop on Trumps name for eternity.

      MAGA

    3. @Aztec Blood I think 70 Million people voted for a man they knew was a lying corrupt racist. I think 70 million people ignored the very loud warnings of the danger trump was to our democracy. I think most of those 70 million people were conned and then refused to acknowledge the truth even though they KNEW what a lying pos trump has always been. I think 70 million people voted for a man that they watched give cover to racist cowards. That’s what I think.

    1. @Paul Drusbasky actually he was impeached that’s not going away. Now there will be a trial in the senate. If convicted they can then have a second vote to ban him from holding office again. Those are the facts.

    2. McConnell congratuled Biden on Dec 15. Up until then he never claimed voter fraud or that the election wasn’t free and fair. He is and will be a valuable asset to Biden. Save your hate for Hawley, Cruz and last but not least the hypocrite of the century Lindsey Graham.

    3. @Paul Drusbasky actually you can continue impeachment proceedings against somebody after they have left office because you can also bar somebody from ever holding office again

  2. This is interesting. If Mitch goes for impeachment, he may well get the votes he needs. After all, he’s the one who hands out the GOP jobs…

    1. McConnell will no longer be the head of the Senate. Since the Dems will have the majority, it will be Schumer. Not sure if the new Senators that won in Georgia were sworn in today or tomorrow, but Mitch is down to mere hours that he is in charge.

    1. His political career is OVER, he just does not know it yet. Anyone tarnished with the Trump brush is history. All the GOP parasites are trying to scoop up the 60 million votes abandoned by Trump.

    2. @D Duke Ted Cruz knows Trump is finished, that’s why he was at the demonstration, like a vulture, trying to get the carrion.

    1. I mean a turtle does have to stick is head out of its shell every once in awhile even if only to breath and eat…

    1. He is also shook that those fanatics will be at his door with the Rambo knives, restraints, and assault riffles. He wants protection. They don’t want their way of life to change. It was ok to get their votes but now that Trump is out, they don’t want no parts of the deplorables

    2. Mitch is saying that because he’s in a power struggle with Trump over control of the GOP. If he can get Trump convicted of the impeachment charge and then barred from ever holding office again, he will greatly diminish Trump’s standing among his base and the Republicans in the Senate.

    3. Lindsey Graham, Mitch McConnell, Matt Gaetz, Donald Trump these
      and the rest of the Republicans are domestic terrorist supporters. The
      Republicans are pathological liars, mentally greedy ill, murdering, Evil,
      psychopaths, sell outs without empathy. Trump who incited insurrection
      and his Republican representatives have blood on their hands from the five
      who died due to this incitement. BOYCOTT ANY TRUMP PRODUCTS AND
      SERVICES. DON’T EVER VOTE REPUBLICAN IT’S SUPPORTERS ARE
      DOMESTIC TERRORIST.

    4. Finally he can get back what left of the republicans party. My advice to pence he should keep some of maga policies
      Specially China.

    1. Lindsey Graham, Mitch McConnell, Matt Gaetz, Donald Trump these
      and the rest of the Republicans are domestic terrorist supporters. The
      Republicans are pathological liars, mentally greedy ill, murdering, Evil,
      psychopaths, sell outs without empathy. Trump who incited insurrection
      and his Republican representatives have blood on their hands from the five
      who died due to this incitement. BOYCOTT ANY TRUMP PRODUCTS AND
      SERVICES. DON’T EVER VOTE REPUBLICAN IT’S SUPPORTERS ARE
      DOMESTIC TERRORIST.

    2. Ah, no, he’d be in a lifeboat being paddled by some peons with just him and his wife as passengers, yelling at the ship that there was no iceberg.

    1. @Jen Snow The clip didn’t give any context via critique. This isn’t smart on MSNBC’s behalf. Mitch is right but so is a broken clock twice a day.

    2. There are too many enablers – fellow Rebublicans, Whitehouse Staff, Melanoma and Family Trump. They all have blood on their hands.

    1. Buy his soul back? Lol wrong. He’s just jumping from one bandwagon to another whenever it suits him. Wouldn’t want to lose power and stock options with the pharmaceutical companies.

    2. McConnell risks being murdered by MAGAs , it counts for something in my book but I understand your perspective and it’s legit

    3. @Tim Marshall Well…magats can try it but i’m sure they will eat lead long before they were even able to touch him.

  3. It’s easy to claim you’re no longer scared of a monster AFTER it’s being banished from your room….

    Mitch hid inside his shell for 4 years…NEVER forget.

    1. He didn’t hide, he just didn’t care for as long as he can grab power.
      Taxbreaks, partisan judges, 2 at the SCOTUS? Mitch couldn’t care less if a pandemic kills 400k+ people, as long as he can press his agenda.

    1. By that logic, many Democrat leaders also have blood on their hands.
      For example, Governor Cuomo killing thousands by ordering Covid-positive seniors into nursing homes.
      Or the Governors and Mayors of Washington St and Oregon allowing months of riots, murder and lawlessness and refusing to bring in the National Guard.
      And I remind you that an ACTUAL insurrection took place in Seattle when domestic terrorist groups formed an “autonomous zone”.
      It wasn’t until a murder occurred weeks later that action was taken.
      I know this is all whataboutism. But it’s needed to remind people of the massive hypocrisy we’re seeing from Democrats.

    2. @hugh jorgan Well as I have experience of seniors with Covid being transferred into nursing homes thats not happening via Cuomo ,I am in U.K. and that has happened here also. Or is Cuomo responsible not the home owners after the money. As for the BLM marches I saw the force used against peaceful protesters ,now the governor of 1 state taking the police force to court for their violence against those protesters . The world noted force absent for armed protestors in Michigan and Capitol House riot with POTUS watching and encouraging.

    1. Him no longer being Senate Majority Leader is a good start. Now if voters in Kentucky will finally figure it out.

    2. I never realized, until I reached adulthood, that I was raised “differently” by my parents. I was raised that you gave your respect and trust to people until they earned your dis-respect and mistrust. Well, Moscow Mitch has done a bang-up job of earning both my distrust AND my disrespect. I have NOTHING but CONTEMPT for this piece of excrement. And I would like to thank my parents for raising me “differently”–to think that skin color is unimportant, that religion is unimportant, that gender is unimportant, that sexual orientation is unimportant. What IS important is character, integrity, morals, and your actions toward others (both other humans AND animals).
