‘Mitch McConnell is vulnerable’: Kentucky Democrats are ‘ready to ditch’ #MoscowMitch

Published

The leader of the United States Senate may be in danger of losing re-election after Tuesday’s huge shift away from Republicans during Tuesday’s elections.

“The Republicans put Donald Trump on the ballot today in Kentucky — and the Republicans lost,” MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell noted.

For analysis, O’Donnell interviewed Ben Self, the chairman of the Kentucky Democratic Party.

“Your state’s senior senator, Mitch McConnell, has pretty negative polling numbers in Kentucky right now with the election a year away,” O’Donnell noted. “What does tonight’s result tell you about the Mcconnell re-election campaign?”

“I think it absolutely shows you that Mitch McConnell’s vulnerable,” Self replied.

“The Republicans are going to try to say he’s a different candidate, it’ll be a national election, it won’t be a state election. When you look at the approval numbers, they’re pretty darn close,” he explained.

“People are fired up to take on Mitch McConnell. We hear from people inside the state they’re ready to ditch Moscow Mitch and replace him with somebody who really represents the issues in Kentucky,” Self said.

Mitch McConnell stopped representing years ago, and I think when we have a democratic candidate who’s willing to put Kentucky first, we’re going to see Kentuckians come out and vote for them,” he predicted.

House Republicans have 3 key defenses of Trump’s Ukraine extortion campaign — and they’re all terrible

on

To any halfway objective observer, the first day of public hearings in House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry, which are ongoing as of this writing, have not gone well for Trump’s defenders.

Bill Taylor, the top US ambassador in Kyiv, and veteran State Department official George Kent came off as principled and non-partisan as they delivered damning testimony about the Trump regime’s multifaceted campaign to coerce the Ukrainian government to announce an investigation into fringe right-wing conspiracy theories designed to deflect blame for interfering in the 2016 election from Russia and onto Ukraine.

Progressives hilariously ridicule Donald Trump Jr.’s new book with their own Trump triggers #TriggerDonaldTrumpJr

Published

on

President Donald Trump's eldest child and namesake has published a book about liberals he says are "triggered" by conservatives. Ironically, it seems Donald Trump Jr. is the one who seems to be triggered by the reception he's getting from some on his book tour.

The hashtag, #TriggerDonaldTrumpJr has nothing to do with Jr's new book, rather it's progressives using his book title to mock the Trump child. Internet users were torn between mocking the young Trump for desperately trying to get his father's attention, scrambling to seem relevant, trying to launch his own political career, trying to make his own money and so much more.

‘Blather and hysteria’: Conservative columnist explains why GOP anti-impeachment ‘antics’ just crashed and burned

Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio, Rep. Devin Nunes of California and other House Republicans were clearly trying to rally the Trumpian base on Wednesday, when the impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump offered its first public testimony. Jordan and Nunes aggressively tried to discredit the inquiry and the two witnesses who testified: diplomat William B. Taylor (U.S. ambassador to Ukraine) and Deputy Assistant Secretary of State George P. Kent. But conservative Washington Post opinion writer Jennifer Rubin, in a Wednesday column, stressed that House Republicans — for all their “antics and conspiracy theories” — failed to show why Trump shouldn’t be impeached, while House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff and other House Democrats showed why he should.
