  1. Funny how your republicans now talk about working together…. when they’re not in power

    • @peachion2 So even CNN… that doesn’t outright lie, leaves things out. And Americans are not capable of filling in the blanks.

    • @Ben Grimm who are you to decide what information Americans are capable of understanding?
      Freedom of the press. We do not have state controlled media, thank God.
      Everyone has the capability of seeking other resources if they choose to. Or seek no television if they choose. It isn’t perfect, but no one, including you should ever have any control over available information.
      We’ll leave that to North Korea. No one can prefer that.

    • @Ben Grimm exactly how many Americans do you know? You cannot judge an entire populace by your own limited experience. How arrogant of you.

    • @Kermit T. Frog and he still manages to be insulting towards the Democrats, snake that he is.

    • @Akashes Klay and even they aren’t or weren’t brave enough to really stand against them, imo milquetoast at best.

    His statement is hollow. He has been a co-creator of this mess we’re in.

    • More the leading director than simply a co-creator.

    • I couldn’t watch him justify why his fellow republicans are attempting to burn the house down, when he himself passed out the matches! 😖

      Not to mention, his naked opposition to President Obama , or Breona Taylor’s prosecution of her killers!! He never mentioned her! never never had!! The truth is, the GOP wanted the orange shiv to rule, but they were afraid to take arms!!

    • He’ll deny it. We all know, though. ITs all about how his “colleagues” handle him. I hope they handle him like the corpse he is – didn’t he put he prefers cremation in his will?

  3. The grim reaper of legislation. Too little, too late. Let’s hope he’s done.

    • @That Bish again YEP & HURRY ☝& get “THOSE 😈🐴🐴💩 LOSERS” OUT OF THE PPL’S WH🏡!
      SOME OF THEIR 😈🐴🐴 BELONG N JAIL, starting with THAT 🐷DUMB🐴 SOB, COWARD 😈🐴💩, djt, with that SAME RED👔ON EVERY DAY, evening & night! YES 👀 SAID IT 🆗! 😌😂😂😂🌞

    • @Sean Moore Reps had more states red than blue, blue had more votes in very specific key states with high electoral collage seat number in the range of 80-95 percent. I’ve hear Stalin brag about getting 88 percent. But 95? O-key. All the know measurements of a candidates success know of weighed in Trumps favor. To this day, everyone has simply gotten away with zero explanation of why the voting suddenly stopped, or why the machines were hooked illegally to the internet. Answering those questions would have had an impact on people, if answered properly and not “we evacuated a building due to a leaking toilet”.

    • He want leading for long

    • Go Home Mitch

    • Go home Mitch

  4. And Merrick Garland just got tapped for ATTORNEY GENERAL.!!!

    • Garland must have an epiphany now, Republicans diverted his path to the true calling: to prosecute criminal Trump enterprise.

  5. MITCH IS STILL A HUMAN STAIN, but he’s currently doing the right thing. (For once)

    • Eduardo Angel Cruz | January 6, 2021 at 4:04 PM | Reply

      He’s only doing it because knows GOP has lost the Senate. It’s damage control.

    • Barely…

    • Reginald K.Son | January 6, 2021 at 5:57 PM | Reply

      He’ll get no credit for growing a pair now. He was a co-conspirator in all of this.

    • Ok, if you want to ignore all the “but they did it too’ the double talk.
      Al Gore lost the closest election ever and it was a messy affair for several weeks, but he had the human decency to get up at the lectern and concede.

    • No he’s not doing the right thing. The right thing to do is nullify all votes cast in Michigan Wisconsin Pennsylvania and Georgia. The election rules were changed by state officials. That is unconstitutional. Only the state legislature can change the voting rules. Therefore they are certifying illegal votes.

  6. “Protecting our constitional order requires respecing the limits of our own power”
    McConnell years too late

    • We haven’t sent a probe out into space far enough to find how far past the limit of this solar system he’s passed.

  7. Mitch is holding back tears for his own new minority status.

  8. He had me for the first min then he just went and started blaming everyone and else yet again.

    This feels like he’s talking to a room full of elementary school kids who misbehaved during an assembly


    • Thats the emotional and logical level most these politicians seem to have dropped out of school around, and never grew. Someone smart gives a detailed report, they yawn and ignore him. Someone says a bunch of stupid gibberish, they applaud

    Did Mitch just wakeup?
    Where has he been the last 4years.

  11. A real cinch to moralise like that when largely responsible for the situation – foxy old man !

  12. Trying to appear like a statesman to avoid potential prosecution for 4 years of misdeeds.
    A traitor speaks.

  13. Trying to do something good in a bad situation you escalated !!!!! SORRY MOSCOW BOY……not buying it !!

  14. Mitch McConnell saying their must be no double standards, priceless

  15. He needs to go. Still not taking any responsibility for him, his party, or his hand picked president.

    • All the old dinos need to go. They can’t even use internet explorer. They still watch black and white TV, have a smoking room, and a gentlemens hunting club. The “Good Old Boys” time is far done. I’m not seeing a single elder make a sane choice, not him OR Pelosi.

  16. It’s called HYPOCRACY of the greatest kind and you need to own it, Mitch!

  17. He’s just protecting himself because he knows he’s about to be a minority leader. Disgusting

    The most important vote he ever took was WHEN HE CHOSE NOT TO REMOVE TRUMP FROM OFFICE.

    • Global Mask Penguin | January 6, 2021 at 8:01 PM | Reply

      Well said

    • Paul Hartnell | January 6, 2021 at 9:44 PM | Reply

      Actually this vote here today is even more important than that vote, don’t be fooled into thinking this wouldn’t be the end of democracy

    • You know , WE remember what the turd said .


  19. You are witnessing Mitch realizing that the monster he helped create has finally come back to destroy him.

  20. Tiffany Luciano | January 6, 2021 at 4:58 PM | Reply

    Mitch you created, fed, and trained this Monster.

    Cleanup your mess.
