    He said he opposed him(Putin) for 20 years but he didn’t act like that.

  2. Kentucky should be ashamed for enabling Moscow Mitch.

    • @JJ lol well the 50+ voters should rethink their vote. all eyes on Kentucky!

      Yessss! It’s sad!( No disrespect to the people of Kentucky) I don’t understand it.

    • @icin4d except this one cant be pinned on democratics as it is not partisan as it ain’t democratics stopping bills that would help protect our election. Also, it ain’t democratics that had sanctions lifted for a Russian oligarch who is opening a plant in KY. Add to that that his former staffers lobbied Russian for that plant with the oligarch on secret.

      @icin4d shoot yourself in the foot to be right.

  3. Mitchoski McConneliskov , some say he’s the first Soviet troll prototype ever made for St.kentucksburg

  4. Obvious! The RNC has taken a load of laundered $$ from Putin’s buddies and he does not want the proof uncovered.

    What about him and his wife getting rich off the American people

    Moscow Mitch, like DJT, is on borrowed time. If Kentuckian’s have any sense, they’ll give Moscow Mitch the almighty boot!

    Where is the link to buy the shirt? I want to help get the REDS out!

  8. McCarthy was American while Mitch is helping Russians! McCarthyism was far more American than what Mitch is doing.

    Mitch is using his position to obstruct justice and threaten national security. He needs to be recalled now.

  10. single handedly hijacked our government for 6+ years. Traitor Moscow Mitch.

    I love this new nickname. This guy needs to be removed… Sells out America and been in office for 30+++ years already. Enough.

  12. Do I vote for the (D) Democrat or the (R) Russian Asset or is that Racist it’s getting confusing what the R stands for.

  13. Dear Moscow Mitch…”Modern day McCarthyism” would work only if Russia was still a Communist State. It’s not. It’s a fascist oligarchy. It comes as no great surprise to me that you are a Putin asset. If the ushanka fits… wear it

  14. Moscow Mitch, Leningrad Lindsey and Donbass Donny aka the Three Stooges. Get rid, or lose your democracy. It’s that simple.

    Moscow Mitch realizes that the only way Republicans can win at this point in History, is to accept assistance from foreign governments.

  16. Moscow Mitch – is a Great Name for him. Much deserved !!

    • Best thing Joe Scarborough has said in the 18 months I’ve been watching Morning Joe. Who came up with Leningrad Lindsey?

    “Mitch McConnell defended his patriotism on the Senate floor with a speech.”
    Me: *Proceeds to fast forward video*

    I implore voters in Kentucky to belch out a resounding “No”, and knock Yertle the Turtle off his throne.

  19. Common Sense A Super Power | August 2, 2019 at 6:15 AM | Reply

    *Vote Amy McGrath!*
    Say NO to Kentucky Bribed Traitor

  20. Stop calling me treasonous every time I commit treason!!

    -Mitch McConnell
