ICYMI: McConnell Commits Career Suicide by Insulting MAGA Movement

Mitch McConnell has long been one of the most powerful men in Washington.  In fact, it appears that he might even be getting a little careless about his relative position of power.

That’s because, with Donald Trump still very much in control of the GOP base and the party’s narrative, McConnell has decided to buck the former President – and his followers.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell described the Capitol riot as a “violent insurrection” Tuesday—and criticized the Republican National Committee for censuring two party members on the House panel investigating the attack. The Jan. 6, 2021 riot “was a violent insurrection with the purpose of trying to prevent a peaceful transfer of power after a legitimately certified election,” McConnell told reporters, per the Hill. “That’s what it was.” On Friday, the RNC, led by chairwoman Ronna McDaniel passed a resolution accusing Reps. Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger of joining “Democrat-led persecution of ordinary citizens who engaged in legitimate political discourse.”

The jarring jargon is sure to stun the MAGA Movement, who’ve long considered the events fo January 6th to have been well within the rights of We The People, and who’ve rejected the very notion that those actions were seditious or treasonous in the least.

There is little doubt that, as Trump continues his likely pursuit of the White House in 2024, that Mitch McConnell will be headed for the finish line of his political career.
