Moscow Mitch flatly contradicts one of Trump’s lies

What do you say? Should we keep calling Mitch McConnell “Moscow Mitch” until a) the heat death of the universe, b) he’s out of office, or c) he stops being a useless waste of tortoise shell?

I say a). But that’s just me.

But this isn’t about Mitch McConnell the filthy traitor. It’s about Mitch McConnell the guy who’s maybe getting a wee bit torqued over the pathological liar squatting in the White House.

Earlier yesterday, CBS News reporter Nancy Cordes asked McConnell about Trump’s highly suspect claim that McConnell told him his call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky was “the most innocent phone call that I’ve ever read.”

And — ruh-roh — Mitch didn’t have his pr*sident’s back:

CORDES: The president has said that you told him that his phone call with the Ukrainian president was perfect and innocent. Do you believe that the president has handled this Ukrainian situation perfectly?

MCCONNELL: We’ve not had any conversations on that subject.

CORDES: So he was lying about that?

MCCONNELL: [Laughs] You’ll have to ask him. I don’t recall any conversations with the president about that phone call.

So Donald Trump lied. Someone wake up Sean Hannity and let him know.

Still, the way McConnell reacted was telling. He basically said, “Aw, c’mon. This is Trump we’re talking about. Next question.”

In other words, even McConnell — the sleaziest reptile in Congress — is tired of the unending fusillade of lies.

Aren’t we all?

Sorry, Mitch. You backed this horse. And you’ll get to ride him into the sunset.

Well I just read that only 7 senators flatly oppose impeachment. That was part of a shit show by the republicans to whine about closed door hearings on impeachment. They are trying to grandstand the hearings because the hearings show trump did what they said he did.
