Mitch McConnell publicly severs relationship with Trump, lays blame for Capitol riots directly at his feet

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (RINO-KY) appears to have completed his transformation from a staunch advocate for the GOP and Donald Trump to a tool of the incoming Biden administration.

McConnell accused President Trump on Tuesday of inciting the January 6th Capitol riots without a hint of nuance, claiming that the “violent criminals” were “provoked by the president and other powerful people,” likely a swipe at conservative Senators that objected to the election certification. 

In a speech on the Senate floor on Tuesday, McConnell made it clear what he thinks of Donald Trump, and by extension, his millions of supporters.

“The last time the Senate convened, we had just reclaimed the Capitol from violent criminals who tried to stop Congress from doing our duty,” McConnell said in the first Senate meeting since the riots. “The mob was fed lies. They were provoked by the president and other powerful people.”

Mitch McConnell is already cozying up with the Biden administration, as evidenced by a New York Post report that McConnell will join Biden and Senate Democrat leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) at Wednesday’s service at the Cathedral of St. Matthew prior to the inauguration.

Biden has extended no such invitations to GOP loyalists, making it clear that he does not view McConnell as a threat to his administration.

McConnell has not come out in direct support of convicting President Trump on impeachment charges brought by the House, but his increasingly critical rhetoric towards Trump makes the scenario not unlikely.

With longtime GOP leaders capitulating to the mob, what is the path forward for GOP voters in the next four years? Scroll down to the comments section to let us know what you think!

  1. While I am not an all-out devotee of Donald Trump (I DID vote for him last election as the lesser of 2 evils), I don’t like fewer than 100 individuals in Washington dictating to me who I can and can not vote for in 2024.

  2. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is not as smart a politician as I once thought. Without Trump’s support, the Republicans are doomed in 2022, in the mid-term elections. With Trump’s support, the Republicans can retake control of Congress and undo the anticipated stupid things the Democrats are planning to do, which will harm the U.S. The Senate has no jurisdiction for a trial on the House impeachment after noon on 1/20/21. The Republicans should demand that Pelosi drop this stupidity or have a quick trial to acquit President Trump for having done nothing to warrant the snap impreachment.

    1. Mitch is just happy to have his China ties revigorated. He needs to go to church with Biden but I doubt that will do him much good.

    1. Good! If I had chance to vote for miss match Mitch I would never vote for dumb hill billy like this compromising traitor jerk . He e is epitome of a political jerk!

  3. Nothing but and old RINO he needs to switch sides Some people arent who they say they are be careful of the company you keep!

  4. McConnell was never a conservative. Hopefully, Kentuckians will now have their eyes opened. So many RINOS…..Sad

  5. I honestly believe it is time we citizens remove the type of Congress we have. It has turned DIRTY, FILTHY, and DANGEROUS TO AMERICANS. Frankly I believe Congress should sit for one month and no more each year. I also believe NONE of them should run for any sort of “party”, but give us their “thinking” before elections and when they do not stick to what they told us, we kick them OUT NOW, and not later. We should never allow more time as a Congressman than 5 years, no more, AND HE SHOULD NOT BE PAID A FORTUNE FOR THE REST OF HIS LIFE…..WE CITIZENS GO BROKE KEEPING OUR GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS AS WEALTHY AS THEY CAN POSSIBLY GO. Frankly I am sick and tired of them and their stupidities they are so very proud of. I am not angry at all Congressmen, just MOST OF THEM.

    I also want to quit the Republican Party and go with one that has no wimps and/or no thieves. Wanna bet I cannot FIND one such “Party”?

    1. I’m with you on that, I don’t think one like that exists, but I have a feeling that we haven’t heard the end of Former President Trump. As he was saying his goodbye, it seemed to me, like he might want to start his own party, like maybe being called the Patriotic Party. I’m not saying that is what he was trying to say, but he was trying to say something.

  6. Wonder who the majority of the Congress pockets they are in. Most should be impeached. Nothing but lies come out of their mouths. I am tired of my taxes going to pay their salarys. They only care about them shelves not the American people.
    Pelosi is also big danger to us.

  7. Get rid of the Republican party and start a party for President Trump the “publicans” abandoned Trump and the rest of his supporters so why support an old worthless bunch of Idiots who have shown over and over they don’t care about you or your family. They definitely are so weak, remember when Mitch and his wife were confronted at their home, who stood up? Not Mitch! What a wimpy bunch of rich (off our backs) political hacks! So I say Mr. President, you say the word and we’ll see if we can’t start a new party ,by the people and for the people as it was intended with term limits so this kind of riff raff won’t exist. I believe we are a force to be reckoned with, let’s see 74 million voters and probably many more than that, we may never know! Leave these lousy “publicans”to fend for themselves, what a bunch of LOSERS, They will never get my vote again, what Cowards!

  8. I’m with you on that, I don’t think one like that exists, but I have a feeling that we haven’t heard the end of Former President Trump.

  9. It is so sad to see this hiprocracy in our government. I’m so discouraged that we basically have no one to fight for us conservatives. They talk about unity, but they are encouraging the destruction of America & are already taking away our freedoms. Shame on Senator McConnell. To see all those soldiers @ our capitol, but no law & order in Seattle or Portland shows their hiprocracy.

  10. I will not ever wish death on anyone, even scum like those in the democRAT party and the RINOs who lack the spine to stand up for right. But I can sincerely say that when Bait & Switch Mitch arrives at the near end of his life on this earth, I hope he suffers in direct proportion to the pain he has inflicted upon the USA. There, I said it. He and Mutt Romney both deserve a horrible and painful fate.

  11. There’s none so blind as he who will not see! Mitch is as blind as they come! The military will take care of him!
