McConnell: Trump "Provoked" Riot With Lies


Look who's peeked out of his shell. It's soon-to-be Senate Minority Leader and human/turtle hybrid Sen. Moscow Mitch McConnell, delivering remarks today in the Senate:

“The last time the Senate convened, we had just reclaimed the Capitol from violent criminals who tried to stop Congress from doing our duty. The mob was fed lies. They were provoked by the president and other powerful people. And they tried to use fear and violence to stop a specific proceeding of the first branch of the federal government which they did not like. But we pressed on.” (our emphasis)

Two of those "powerful people" were his disgraceful, seditious and opportunistic colleagues, Sens. Tailgunner Ted "Coup" and Josh "Haw Haw" Hawley. It's hard to make it out from C-SPAN's clip, but that seems to be Ted Coup presiding, too.

It seems now more than ever that McConnell is signaling that he may hold Trump responsible for inciting the insurrection during the Senate trial. He certainly holds him responsible for losing the Senate, and therefore his position as Majority Leader.

BONUSMore signals the rats are abandoning ship.
