Trump’s butt boy strikes again. 

Courtesy of CNN:

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Thursday night shrugged off outrage over President Donald Trump’s willingness to receive foreign dirt on political opponents, chalking it up to partisan bitterness over the 2016 election.

McConnell has frequently defended the President, but Thursday’s comments were notable given the severity of the uproar over Trump’s remarks, which put him at odds with national security professionals within his own administration and raised questions about whether he was inviting foreign adversaries to again meddle in US democracy.

“They just can’t let it go, Laura,” McConnell said to Fox News’ Laura Ingraham when asked about Democrats’ response to Trump’s remarks, which have again stirred talk of impeachment. “I said weeks ago, case closed. We got the Mueller report, the only objective evaluation that will be conducted.”

Ingraham also asked, “Do you think the President made a mistake in the way he answered that question when he said, ‘Maybe I would, maybe I wouldn’t. I would hear them out.’ Would you answer the question that way?”

“He gets picked at every day about every different aspect of it,” McConnell replied, “but the fundamental point is they are trying to keep the 2016 election alive.”

Like Trump McConnell is a national embarrassment and should be removed from office at the earliest opportunity. 

McConnell is up for reelection in 2020, but so far there are no Democratic challengers. 

That’s too bad because I would think that anybody with a heartbeat and whose lips are not permanently attached to Donald Trump’s ass would have a legitimate shot.

    ~IT~ isn’t a coincidence that McCONnell got a $200 million investment from a Ru$$ian oligarch after he blocked Democrats from reimposing sanctions. It has also been reported that McCONnell and his wife Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao are illegally making money from Ru$$ia. Mitch McCONnell covered for Ru$$ian election interference in 2016, and in some ways, his ties to Ru$$ia are more visible than Trump’s.

    “ALL the bills have hit a roadblock. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) has reportedly told his colleagues that he will not allow the Senate to vote on election security legislation this session.”
    Senator Wyden told Sludge he thinks McConnell does not want to make elections more secure.
    “The only logical conclusion is that Senator McConnell wants American elections to be vulnerable to hackers and foreign interference,”
    “It’s not surprising to me that Mitch McConnell is receiving these campaign contributions,” the Brennan Center for Justice’s Lawrence Noren told Sludge.
    “He seems single-handedly to be standing in the way of anything passing in Congress around election security, and that includes things that the vendors might want, like money for the states to replace antiquated equipment.”
    “Mitch McConnell’s conflicts of interest in blocking any and all election security legislation is not only shameful, it is placing our democracy at risk,””

    Martin Short on Real Time with Bill Maher, “Mitch McConnell. He’s not only confusing but this is a man who in his entire life, never took a good picture.”

    Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., on Thursday, taking issue with the president he usually defends. “It should be practice for all public officials who are contacted by a foreign government with an offer of assistance … to inform the FBI and reject the offer.”

    That reflects a concern about the motives and agendas of foreign governments that would be familiar to Washington, Adams and Jefferson — the first three presidents — From day one…on…
