Time to contact our Senators and tell them, Mitch goes or they do!!None of them will do a damn thing unless we threaten them.
Mitch McConnell was no friend to the Tea Party movement. Truth be told he was no friend to Pres. Trump either. When McConnell needed judges appointed he made nice with Trump. Fortunately for McConnell,Trump was on his side as far as appointments went-and Mitch of course had no reason to oppose Trump.On the other hand he was never there for Trump.He cost us 2 seats in Georgia as well;opposing the candidates Trump backed. This,after Trump,gave him his total endorsement for his own re-election. McConnell even ripped Trump for the Jan 6 riots at the Capitol. Mitch wants him out of the party;while the Republican rank and file almost unanimously backs Trump for a 2024 nomination.
Trump tried to play nice with the so called leader when he 1st got to DC by appointing Mitch’s wife Elaine Chao for Transportation Secretary. The leader made it no secret he wanted Trump vanquished from the party in spite of Pres Trump’s efforts to get along with him.
Let’s not forget it was McConnell who approved of the Democrats post office hearings right before and during the Republican convention. Trump called out the move
“Let them hold them NOW (during their Convention) or after our Convention is over. Always playing right into their hands”https://abcnews.go.com/Politics/trump-blasts-mcconnell-timing-senate-hearing-postmaster-general/story?id=72471115
President Trump’s Statement re Mitch McConnell
“The Republican Party can never again be respected or strong with political “leaders” like Sen. Mitch McConnell at its helm. McConnell’s dedication to business as usual, status quo policies, together with his lack of political insight, wisdom, skill, and personality, has rapidly driven him from Majority Leader to Minority Leader, and it will only get worse. The Democrats and Chuck Schumer play McConnell like a fiddle—they’ve never had it so good—and they want to keep it that way! We know our America First agenda is a winner, not McConnell’s Beltway First agenda or Biden’s America Last.
In 2020, I received the most votes of any sitting President in history, almost 75,000,000. Every incumbent House Republican won for the first time in decades, and we flipped 15 seats, almost costing Nancy Pelosi her job. Republicans won majorities in at least 59 of the 98 partisan legislative chambers, and the Democrats failed to flip a single legislative chamber from red to blue. And in “Mitch’s Senate,” over the last two election cycles, I single-handedly saved at least 12 Senate seats, more than eight in the 2020 cycle alone—and then came the Georgia disaster, where we should have won both U.S. Senate seats, but McConnell matched the Democrat offer of $2,000 stimulus checks with $600. How does that work? It became the Democrats’ principal advertisement, and a big winner for them it was. McConnell then put himself, one of the most unpopular politicians in the United States, into the advertisements. Many Republicans in Georgia voted Democrat, or just didn’t vote, because of their anguish at their inept Governor, Brian Kemp, Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, and the Republican Party, for not doing its job on Election Integrity during the 2020 Presidential race.
It was a complete election disaster in Georgia, and certain other swing states. McConnell did nothing, and will never do what needs to be done in order to secure a fair and just electoral system into the future. He doesn’t have what it takes, never did, and never will.
My only regret is that McConnell “begged” for my strong support and endorsement before the great people of Kentucky in the 2020 election, and I gave it to him. He went from one point down to 20 points up, and won. How quickly he forgets. Without my endorsement, McConnell would have lost, and lost badly. Now, his numbers are lower than ever before, he is destroying the Republican side of the Senate, and in so doing, seriously hurting our Country.
Likewise, McConnell has no credibility on China because of his family’s substantial Chinese business holdings. He does nothing on this tremendous economic and military threat.
Mitch is a dour, sullen, and unsmiling political hack, and if Republican Senators are going to stay with him, they will not win again. He will never do what needs to be done, or what is right for our Country. Where necessary and appropriate, I will back primary rivals who espouse Making America Great Again and our policy of America First. We want brilliant, strong, thoughtful, and compassionate leadership.
Prior to the pandemic, we produced the greatest economy and jobs numbers in the history of our Country, and likewise, our economic recovery after Covid was the best in the world. We cut taxes and regulations, rebuilt our military, took care of our Vets, became energy independent, built the wall and stopped the massive inflow of illegals into our Country, and so much more. And now, illegals are pouring in, pipelines are being stopped, taxes will be going up, and we will no longer be energy independent.
This is a big moment for our country, and we cannot let it pass by using third rate “leaders” to dictate our future!”
It’s not the ONLY instance where McConnell backed candidates who could not and didn’t win. He has a habit of interfering and costing the Republican’s seats.He excoriated Trump after the former President was acquitted in a 2nd impeachment. He never was a friend of Trumps & stabbed him in the back every chance he got.
McConnell is GOPe through and through. Here’s a reminder:
McConnell is just waiting for the day Trump’s loyal base throws in the towel, his influence wanes and he fades off into the sunset.
As the highest-ranking elected Republican in the federal government, one of his jobs is to signal to political donors and other Republicans who were spooked by the events of January 6 that there is some hope for the party post-Trump. And, perhaps most importantly, he does not seem to care much about being a lightning rod among anti-establishment Republican voters, having vanquished them many times before.
Even Sen Lindsey Graham knew better.
Calling McConnell’s speech “an outlier regarding how Republicans feel about all of this,” Senator Lindsey Graham, a staunch Trump backer, said the minority leader will be baggage for Republican candidates in next year’s midterms.
“He got a load off a chest obviously, but unfortunately he put a load on the back of Republicans…Graham went even further about his belief that Trump is cemented as the de facto leader of the GOP
I’m going to tell you that anyone who throws their future in with McConnell and stabs President Trump in the back we’re going to remember and make sure they walk the plank. Why none of the Republicans have the guts to challenge Mitch is beyond me-and NO we are not going to accept his prodigy John Thune. If ‘Turtle’ picked him it’s a red flag. Well, he did and it is.
