  • Trump's advisers point the finger at McConnell as reports of DeSantis feud swirl

    NBC ^ | Jan. 17, 2022, 9:13 PM EST | By Marc Caputo, Jonathan Allen and Peter Nicholas
    Both camps have denied any real friction, and they blamed “the media” for overhyping tensions, but Trump advisers say they see a hidden hand at play: that of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., who is in a pitched battle with Trump over the future of the Republican Party in political races all over the country. They pointed to the podcast itself, because DeSantis made the attention-grabbing remarks on Ruthless, which is co-hosted by McConnell’s longtime adviser Josh Holmes. Shortly after the podcast was posted Friday, Twitter was flooded with the suggestion that DeSantis had knocked Trump by saying one...

    Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) said Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press” that Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has the full support of the Republican caucus to continue in his leadership role if they win the Senate majority in the 2022 midterm election. Anchor Chuck Todd said, “Senator Lindsey Graham said he couldn’t support Mitch McConnell if he doesn’t develop a working relationship with Donald Trump. Is that a litmus test that you think is fair?”

    Wednesday on FNC’s “Hannity,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) raised the possibility of not supporting Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) given a perception McConnell and former President Donald Trump don’t have a good relationship. Graham encouraged McConnell to have that relationship and make the case for Trump-era policies. Otherwise, the South Carolina Republican said McConnell would “fail.”

Mike Rounds (S.D.), who earlier this week was attacked by former President Trump after saying the 2020 presidential election was fair. "I think Sen. Rounds told the truth about what happened in the 2020 election," McConnell told CNN. "And I agree with him."

    Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell Tuesday threatened to essentially shut down a "post-nuclear Senate" as Democrats speed toward a potential vote on altering the Senate's 60-vote filibuster in the next week. "I think it's appropriate to ask: What would the Senate look like in a post-nuclear world?" McConnell said, referring to the "nuclear option" of creating a new Senate precedent with just 50 votes needed to allow passage of legislation.

    This just ANNOYS the heck out of me. Every time I see that the Democrats take power, we see the “Dense Pack” attack happen 2 minutes after all the oaths (not that they seem to mean much lately) are “promised” and the chamber is called into session. Dense Pack can be translated as “we’ve lined up ALL our Agenda items, have written the Bills, and are going to launch them via MALS (the new technology magnetic propelled aircraft launcher on the USS Ford instead of the old steam catapults) in a hurry. It’s happened time after time and REALLY accelerated...

    Most conservative discussions about the problems of our day seem to center around how the Democrats are destroying everything with their far-left policies. Truth be told, many (if not most) Republicans are no better.The GOP is filled, it turns out, with corrupt, spineless Republican politicians who govern (if you can even call it that) based on an ethos of greed and corruption. Many of them are Big Pharma hacks who craft policies that benefit the drug industry at the expense of public health, and enrich the already rich at the expense of the poor.Neither party works for the We the...

    Pfizer has hired the former policy director for Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, Hazen Marshall, as a lobbyist to support the Big Pharma firm’s efforts to shut down amendments to the False Claims Amendments Act of 2021. The lobbying contract covers opposition to whistleblower protections and affirming Pfizer’s patents on the COVID-19 vaccine, The National Pulse can reveal.Lobbyist filings reveal Pfizer recently retained the D.C.-based Marshall & Popp to fight amendments to a law that currently does little to protect the public against fraud by firms like Pfizer. The lobbying firm, which raked in over $3,000,000 in 2021, was founded...

Asked on Wednesday about the possibility that Thune retires, McConnell told conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt that "I certainly hope he won't." "John Thune is an outstanding senator. He's done a great job as whip. ...It would be a real setback from the country and our party if he retires," McConnell added.

    Senate Minority leader Mitch McConnell said the GOP would “certainly welcome” West Virginia Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin “if he was so inclined” to flip parties. Manchin has been bashed by his partisan colleagues for pledging to vote against President Joe Biden’s Build Back Better plan. Speaking on Fox News’ “The Guy Benson Show” podcast, the Kentucky senator called Manchin’s no vote “the single greatest favor Joe Manchin could give this country,” amid rising inflation costs. McConnell said he wasn’t sure how Manchin would vote but is pleased that his decision effectively ends any chance that the bill will get the...

    “You come at the king,” Omar Little once advised on the HBO series The Wire, and “you best not miss.” Donald Trump made it a personal project to come at the king of the Senate GOP, and … thus far he’s still all alone in the quest. Not a single sitting Senate Republican has suggested any opposition to Mitch McConnell, and only two Senate candidates have bothered to side with Trump, Politico reports:Despite months of attacks, the Trump-led campaign to depose the Senate minority leader has resulted in firm pledges from just two Republican candidates and no senators, and it...

    Former President Donald Trump said on Fox News Channel’s “Sunday Morning Futures” that Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) was a “disaster,” thus the Republican Party needs new leadership. Trump said, “Look, Mitch McConnell, a disaster. The Republicans have to get a new leader. Mitch McConnell allowed this to happen. The un-frastructure bill, I call it un-frastructure, not infrastructure. It’s only 9% infrastructure. That means you take 90%, 91% of the money that we’re raising is going to be thrown out the window in order to get 9% infrastructure. There was no way that that should have been passed. It...

    Since Jan. 6, when hundreds of protesters breached Capitol security as Congress certified Joe Biden's ostensible Presidential victory, the prevailing narrative blamed President Donald Trump and his supporters for the subsequent mayhem. But as facts come to light, a different picture emerges. Evidence suggests that Antifa staged the breach to discredit Trump and his supporters. Trump's opponents then would manipulate the disorder to justify another impeachment attempt and repress his supporters further. In the ensuing bedlam, however, federal agents who penetrated Antifa took valuable information -- including a laptop belonging to Rep. Nancy Pelosi, the Speaker of the House....

    Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell on Thursday said to reporters that “it would be a great idea” for Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) to switch to the Republican Party. The comment came after McConnell and Manchin had a meeting as negotiations continue for President Biden’s Build Back Better plan, The Associated Press reported. “As you know, he likes to talk,” McConnell said of Manchin. “It would not surprise you to know that I’ve suggested for years it would be a great idea, representing a deep red state like West Virginia, for him to come over to our side.”

    Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) slammed the Biden administration’s “illegal” vaccine-or-test mandate for large employers on the Senate floor Wednesday as Republicans prepared to force a vote on a resolution to overturn the directive. In his remarks, McConnell praised COVID-19 vaccines as “modern medical miracles” and noted that he had received a booster shot. “I’ve encouraged Kentuckians and all Americans to take full advantage,” he said. “I’ve recorded public service announcements, I am a survivor of childhood polio, I’ve watched vaccines obliterate polio in our country in my entire lifetime. Trust me, there is no bigger proponent of vaccination...

    Having thrown away what little leverage the Republican Party has in this one-party government, GOP Senate leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky) compounded his felony by rolling over once again in the face of Democratic efforts to raise the debt limit with no conditions attached. Democrats, of course, can raise the limit anytime they want because they would not need a filibuster proof majority for a budget bill under the Byrd Rule. But they want to share the blame for doing so with Republicans, so they won’t raise the debt limit alone. And, obliging as ever, McConnell caved in and agreed to...
