Trump blasts McConnel for being ‘disloyal’ amid Jan. 6 hearings

Former President Trump went on a tirade against Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) on Thursday, expressing his anger and frustration over the Republican leader’s actions during the Jan. 6 hearings.

According to a report by The Hill, Trump slammed McConnell as a “disloyal sleazebag,” seeming to lose his cool over McConnell’s speech from the Senate floor during Trump’s second impeachment trial where McConnell blamed the former president for inciting the attack on Capitol Hill.

“Is this the same Mitch McConnell who was losing big in Kentucky, and came to the White House to BEG me for an Endorsement and help? Without me he would have lost in a landslide. A disloyal sleaze bag!” Trump posted on Truth Social, his social media platform.

Trump looked to be referring to the 2020 presidential election. While some believe McConnell was never in any real danger from Amy McGrath, his Democratic opponent, who ultimately won a seventh term in the Senate with a margin of around 20 points, Trump believed otherwise.

A week after Democrats officially abandoned their efforts to roll back the 2017 tax cuts, one of Trump’s biggest domestic achievements, he launched a venomous attack on the leader of the GOP, though McConnell did mention the importance of keeping Trump’s tax cuts at a recent press conference:

“One day we think they’re going to leave taxes alone, which of course would preserve the 2017 tax bill, the next day they’re not so sure,” McConnell said of Democrats’ plans to move a budget reconciliation package.

However, Trump’s frustration boiled over after the Jan. 6 committee played a clip of McConnell speaking to the Senate where he said, “there’s no question, none, that President Trump is practically and morally responsible for provoking the events of the day.”

“The people who stormed this building believed they were acting on the wishes and instructions of the president,” he said. “Having that belief was a foreseeable consequence of the growing crescendo of false statements, conspiracy theories, and reckless hyperbole which the defeated president kept shouting into the largest megaphone on planet Earth.”

When asked on Tuesday whether he would oppose Trump’s candidacy for president in 2024 if he runs again, McConnell only said that the former president would face a lot of competition for the nomination.

“I think we’re going to have a crowded field for president. I assume most of that will unfold later and people will be picking their candidates in a crowded primary field,” he told reporters.

The words come just a week after California Democratic Rep. Judy Chu introduced the Women’s Health Protection Act to protect abortion access. The move marked a strong sign that Democrats won’t stop pressing abortion legislation.
In contrast, 13 states have trigger laws that further limited abortion after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade. Many other conservative states have also added new laws or are in the process of doing so as laws concerning abortion have been returned to individual states.
“Among those who said he shouldn’t run, the most common reason given was that ‘he’s a bad president’ (45%), followed by ‘he’s too old’ (30%), and ‘it’s time for a change’ (26%),” Mediaite reported.
“Just 28% either strongly or somewhat approve of his handling of inflation, while 32% approve of his handling of the economy overall,” it added.
Among the Democrats affiliated with the non-profit are Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar and Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib.
In every meaningful respect, AMP/AJP is nothing more than a disguised continuance of IAP/AMS — stripped of the burden of the Boim Judgement and the ignominy of having been found liable for aiding and abetting the murder of an American teenager,” a 2017 lawsuit
“AMP/AJP are the alter egos and successors of IAP/AMS, and are therefore liable for the unpaid portion of the Boim Judgement,” it added.
Among the Democrats affiliated with the non-profit are Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar and Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib.
The case involved the murder of David Boim, who was 17 when shot by members of Hamas in the West Bank in 1996.

I believe the Presidents comments, It is my belief that McConnell is likely a paid up member of the “:SWAMP” and I will not personally donate to any GOP cause as long as he is the supposed mouthpiece for the GOP.
