Andrea Mitchell: ‘We are going to have to put Mitch McConnell on a milk carton’ because he’s missing amid shutdown

Published

on

MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell observed on Tuesday that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) seems to be missing amid a government shutdown and President Donald Trump’s threat to declare a nation emergency over immigration.

“The House has acted [to end the shutdown],” Mitchell told Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) on her Tuesday show. “We’re going to have to put Mitch McConnell on a milk carton soon because nobody has seen the Senate majority leader. Why will he not bring anything to the floor?”

“I have no idea,” Manchin lamented. “Over many years I’ve been amazed to see Congress abdicating its responsibilities of what it’s supposed to do under the Constitution. We’re giving more powers and more powers to the executive, not just President Trump but many executives before him.”

“Are you hearing there are more Republicans, besides Susan Collins and Cory Gardner, are more Republican senators going to say to their leader, we have to vote on something?” Mitchell wondered.

Manchin declined to speak on behalf of Republican senators, but he predicted that outcry over the shutdown would soon become “insurmountable.”

“I’m hoping that they will,” the senator remarked. “But it’s a shame. We can avoid all this, Andrea. This is all avoidable.”

Journalist E. Jean Carroll detailed her account of Trump raping her in a Bergdorf Goodman dressing room more than two decades ago in an article, in her new book, and in TV interviews. New York Magazine reported that it contacted two of her friends who confirmed that she told them about the assault shortly after it happened.

‘He should be hospitalized’: Internet stunned after Trump goes off on completely incoherent Mt Rushmore rant

Published

on

President Donald Trump was asked on Tuesday whether his face should appear on Mount Rushmore along with other major American presidents.

“If I answer that question yes, I will end up with such bad publicity,” Trump told The Hill, before pivoting to an incoherent rant about fireworks.

The president's rambling shocked many people on Twitter:

Apart from Trump’s apparent inability to string together coherent English sentences on the fly, note also the sheer ignorance and apathy toward the idea that there might be legitimate reasons why fireworks are not detonated around the Black Hills. https://t.co/jja2XD19Mw

 ENOUGH IS ENOUGH 

Trump endorses killing journalists, like Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi. Online ad networks are now targeting sites that cover acts of violence against dissidents, LGBTQ people and people of color.
