Hannity: It’s time to replace McConnell as GOP leader

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell delivered a fiery, brutally critical U.S. Senate floor speech about former President Donald Trump just minutes after he voted in favor of an acquittal.

Those remarks have sparked intense backlash, from both members of Congress and high-profile media personalities, like Fox News’ Sean Hannity, who just demanded this week that the “sanctimonious” Kentucky senator should be replaced, according to Breitbart

The primetime Fox News host held nothing back as he slammed a number of Senate Republicans who turned on the former president when it came time to vote on whether or not he should be convicted while raising questions about where those anti-Trump senators were when high-profile Democrats were spouting off inflammatory language in the past.

“Where’s the sanctimonious Mitch McConnell, John Thune, demanding that Kamala Harris, Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, Maxine Waters— when is he going to give a speech on the Senate floor and hold those Democrats accountable for their incitement of insurrection and their insurrection-like language?” Hannity said.

Hannity also called out McConnell and Sen. John Thune (R-SD) for failing to be so vocal on issues like digging into the origins and players involved in the failed “Crossfire Hurricane” investigation.

“This is the question Republicans have to ask themselves tonight. Where was John Thune and Mitch McConnell fighting against the biggest abuse of power corruption scandal in our history with Operation Crossfire Hurricane? They were missing in action,” Hannity said.

The Fox News host isn’t the only person concerned about McConnell’s abrupt break from Trump-level Republican politics. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), recently stated that he’s worried that McConnell put a target on the backs of all Senate Republicans in the upcoming 2022 midterm elections, according to USA Today.

“He got a load off his chest, obviously, but unfortunately he put a load on the back of Republicans,” Graham said of McConnell’s floor speech. “That speech you will see in 2022 campaigns.”

Only time will tell, but it looks like sometime before 2022, Republicans up for reelection will be forced to choose which side of the party they align with.

Like I said the other day, be vocal, write to your senators and tell them you want McConnell out as minority leader and you would like them to take action against the 7 Rino’s and staart proceeding of Imeachment against Biden, Harris, Pelosi and Schumer. I sent my letters to my Senators, Jim Risch and Mike Crapo. DO IT!

Tell the RNC that you will not donate 1 PENNY to the RNC until Mitch (the Traitor) is DITCHED.
You can always send funds to specific Conservative members of Congress who are going to be up for re-election.

Have not given to them in years and will never do so. Where were they when it came to securing election integrity. SILENT. So what do the Republicans do, appoint the same useless person as head of the RNC

Michael , I Totally Agree with you and I will be writing mine too . McConnells speech on the floor was Disgusting and I think he’s just fine with unelected Biden in there because his ties to China won’t be brought up ! McConnell is a perfect example of what’s Wrong with Washington !! HEs as bad as the democrats !!

McConnell’s an absolutely phony RINO that should NEVER have been put in congress in the first place yet Kentucky keeps sending him back to our detriment. It’s past time he’s long gone.

“Where’s the sanctimonious Mitch McConnell, John Thune, demanding that Kamala Harris, Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, Maxine Waters— when is he going to give a speech on the Senate floor and hold those Democrats accountable for their incitement of insurrection and their insurrection-like language?” about Trump. Trump has done not one thing to any of them. I want McConnell out as minority leader and you would like them to take action against the 7 Rino’s and start proceeding of Imeachment against Biden, Harris, Pelosi and Schumer. I will not be sending anymore money to help the Republican Party until something is done. This Government now is the Pitt’s. All or most of us Smart People know good and well the 2020 Election was all Voter Fraud. Just the Judge’s was paid off to go against Trump. Sad we have someone that was voted in as so-called President and he had Dementia and has gotten worse, BUT he isn’t impeached or thrown out on his rear. “Where are all of you that are Susposed to be working for We the People? “

If Trump repeating himself is a sign of dementia, then everyone in the MSM must have dementia. They just keep repeating the same lies all the time.

A woman that posted on Twitter, also posted on Parler. Some jerk did not like it, so he ratted her out to her boss and got her fired. Just because she posted on Parler she lost her job. Now I have a problem with this because if he had a problem with her posting on Parler, What was he doing on Parler? I think that this guy is a real jerk to get someone fired, that he did not know had never met, did not know anything about, and yet he felt it necessary to cost this woman her lively hood. For no good reason, other than to prove just how big a jerk he could be.

Be sure to watch the 2 hour “ABSOLUTE PROOF” documentary on the election fraud!!!I have limited funds and no money available to contribute. However: HOW CAN MITCH MCCONNELL, MITT ROMNEY, THE SUPREME COURT (and others) BE SO BLIND AND IGNORANT?IT IS “INTUITIVELY CLEAR TO EVEN THE MOST CASUAL OBSERVER” THAT THIS ELECTION WAS FRAUGHT WITH FRAUD TO OVERRIDE THE LEGITIMATE VOTES!!!! FURTHERMORE; THE SENATE AND HOUSE WERE DERELICT IN THEIR DUTY TO VERIFY ALL LEGITIMATE VOTES WERE COUNTED, AND ENSURE THAT ALL NON-LEGITIMATE VOTES WERE REJECTED!!!!I fully support President Donald J Trump, recognize he truly loves this country and stands firmly for what is right, for the Constitution and for We The People of The United States of America. There is a very huge silent majority who recognizes that We as well as He are under attack by the radical left. Democ’rats. (Which is what the Democrat Party needs to be renamed as that name accurately reflects their Attitude and Hate for all that is good for our nation.) Democ’rats should never be referred to as being the Democratic Party, because there isn’t anything in their platform or conduct that indicates they adhere to Democratic principles. Anyone who refers to them as being Democratic or being The Democratic Party is either ignorant or lacks even an ounce of intelligence. Just make sure as Republican members/candidates for the Senate and House you will fully support and stand with President Donald J Trump, truly love this country and stand firmly for what is right for the Constitution and We The People of The United States of America. If you do, I am confident the huge silent majority will elect/retain you to represent them. DO IT!

The democrats are a disgusting lot. It is surprising that their mirrors don’t explode when they look their selves in the eye. They have been in the swamp far too long and I support the term length that has been talked about. What has happened to all that money they get each year to run the country and all they can do is try to hang people for doing the job they were elected to do. We have to speak up for our good representation and speak out about the bad. God be with us in this troubling time

McConnell is in the Senate not the House of Representatives. No proof, but I believe he is exposing his pettiness because his wife who worked in the Trump Administration resigned shortly before the inauguration and was critical of Trump as well.
