Reacting to comments made by Sen. Lisa Murkowski, who criticized Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for admittedly coordinating with the White House on how to undercut the Senate impeachment trial of Donald Trump, fans of the president took to Twitter to attack the Alaskan Republican.
In an interview with local news station KTUU, Murkowski claimed she was “disturbed” after hearing McConnell’s remarks about working in concert with the White House during a Fox News interview.
“To me, it means that we have to take that step back from being hand in glove with the defense, and so I heard what leader McConnell had said, I happened to think that that has further confused the process,” she stated.
This did not sit well with the president's online defenders who called her out as a "RINO" (Republican In Name Only) and worse.
