      @Michael Beelby more bald face lies from the left.

      @Nunya Business And yet you can’t refute any of it. Just weakly shriek a modified version of ‘Fake News’ into the ether. Gee… I wonder why that is?
      It’s almost like once you get past the parroted lines you have no substance to make an actual argument. Perhaps you should get better handlers, or at least ask them to prepare you with some sort of information beyond the bogus talking points.

      @Michael Beelby You Sure like to talk.

    • @Malisha Goggans People like her don’t even think about the afterlife – that’s why they’re low energy beings! Not much use for them on this planet anymore!

  2. Go figure that a criminal would jump ship after the monies she funneled ta other corporations will be discovered now

  3. She is not resigning in protest, she is resigning in cowardice

      @edmundo oliver do these people actually sleep nights ?
      I guess developed No conscience over time..

    • @Jaime Garcia He can do that anyway if Twitter lets his acct. Open again. I am thinking crazy thoughts about GRANDPA TRUMP and CRAZY UNCLE RUDY Playing “catch” with the Nuclear Football in the Oval Office!😧😂🤣

      @Katherine Raven no it’s just greed and power but McConnell lost his seat so they’re jumping ship.

    • @Marty They don’t need 6. They need a majority of whoever’s left.
      But by leaving, obviously they could have been part of the majority. Cowards.

  4. 4 years and NOW she’s uncomfortable. Remember, she was at Trump’s side at the “fine people at both sides” press conference.

    She’s actually heading for the “Hills.”

    Ah, the lady who literally couldn’t stop checking her watch during the funeral of John McCain. Now her time is up and instead of taking the opportunity to stand up for the democracy, she is slithering away.

  7. She isn’t troubled at all she knows it’s time to go because trump is leaving

    Her dads a billionaire.. the influence he had on Mitch is scary..

    • @Jesse T no she’s not even Chinese… She’s Taiwanese, according to her. China wants nothing to do with her.

    • FactsOver Fiction | January 7, 2021 at 7:31 PM | Reply

      @Jesse T I can read, so I looked it up: Her parents fled the Communist take-over of China; went to Taiwan; then to Long Island NY. So you’re completely wrong. Laughably wrong. Idiotically wrong. Can you even remember the last time you were right? Poor thing.

    • @FactsOver Fiction yeah, when trump won the election. That’s when he was right.

    • @Tom Z Your words are like saying South Korean are not Korean… She was indeed born in Taiwan but the political conflict between Taiwan and China Mainland doesn’t change the ethnic background of her, which is indeed a Chinese.

    • @FactsOver Fiction Im always right: her dad is a billionaire and a high ranking member of the CCP.

    She can resign but the stink will never go away, she chose her legacy freely.

  10. She’s jumped ship to hope that she will not be investigated.

  11. Grayle Tompkins | January 7, 2021 at 3:02 PM | Reply

    Strange, just what has she ever done except protect her family’s shipping interests in China.

  12. Marcel Verses | January 7, 2021 at 3:03 PM | Reply

    My take is anyone that is leaving there job now ,is like moving when the house is already burning. It shows no courage. It shows how. Ugh of a coward they are.

  13. She’s a psychopath just like her husband. Give her no credit

  14. instead of fulfilling her duty to invoke the 25th amendmend, she tries to steal her way out. How brave, how patriotic

  15. evelyne gentry | January 7, 2021 at 3:18 PM | Reply

    Feels like rats jumping from a sinking ship into “shallow waters”….Too little too late.

  16. Elisheba Mitchell | January 7, 2021 at 3:24 PM | Reply

    Of course she will resign quite comfortably, after she ripped US off.

  17. She better hide – they’re coming for her and her corrupt husband – time’s up!

  18. She’s “deeply uncomfortable”? She’s married to Mitch McConnell. I would think she’d be very familiar with that state of mind.

  19. McConnell did not want his wife in a vote to invoke Amendment 25.

  20. How brave.
    Chao: “I’m handing in my two weeks notice.”
    Public: “You were being laid off in two weeks anyway.”
