Angry McConnell Goes Off on Democrat-Media Liars Over “Moscow Mitch” Label (VIDEO)
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) went off on the Democrat-media liars over the “Moscow Mitch” label.
McConnell blasted Democrats from the senate floor Monday and defended himself against claims that he’s doing the bidding of Vladimir Putin.
“I have consistently treated Russia like that threat it is,” McConnell said.
“Last week I stopped Democrats from passing an election law bill through the Senate by unanimous consent, a bill that was so partisan that it only received one Republican vote over in the House. My Democratic friends asked for unanimous consent to pass a bill that everyone knows isn’t unanimous and never will be unanimous. So I objected — Over the last several days I was called unpatriotic, un-American, and essentially treasonous by a couple of left-wing pundits on the basis of bold-faced lies. I was accused of aiding and abetting the very man I’ve singled out as an adversary and opposed for nearly 20 years, Vladimir Putin.”
MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough labeled McConnell “Moscow Mitch” and the Washington Post accused McConnell of being a “Russian asset” all because he blocked a partisan legislation packaged as ‘election reform legislation.’
The deranged Democrats and their stenographers in media use Russia and Vladimir Putin as a distraction because they are unable to debate real issues.
