Last week, America’s number-one traitor, Mitch McConnell, Arrived in Kentucky. He had an SUV waiting for him on the tarmac. He was attempting to avoid his constituents, who had a ‘few complaints.’ Some of those gathered followed him to his home, and continued their protest.
Trump has strangely united the majority of Americans. We are not willing to accept him as our president, or the hypocritical manner in which Republican politicians have bowed to his every demand; even when they adversely affect the American people and violate the Constitution.
At a luncheon in Kentucky, one of his former supporters challenged the failed Senate Majority Leader about jobs and healthcare.
“The last I heard, these coal jobs are not coming back and now these people don’t have the insurance they need because they’re poor,” the woman said.
“And they work those coal mines, and they’re sick, the veterans are sick, the veterans are broken down, they’re not getting what they need.”
“If you can answer any of that, I’ll sit down and shut up like Elizabeth Warren,” she concluded.
The woman was referring to Trump’s promise to reopen all the coal mines, and McConnell’s censuring of Senator Warren during the hearings for white supremacist Jeff Sessions as Trump’s Attorney General.
McConnell later attempted to defend his attack on Ms. Warren.
“Sen. Warren was giving a lengthy speech. She had appeared to violate the rule. She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.”
The last three words have become a battle cry for the Senator. They depict McConnell’s sexist attitude. The same words would not have been applied to a male member of the August body.
“Nevertheless, she persisted,” as well as the hashtag “#shepersisted,” are appearing on signs and twitter everywhere.
McConnell has pushed through Trump’s despicable nominees, and led the racist battle against President Obama for eight years.
Let’s do our nation’s people a great service. Although he is not up for reelection until 2020, we can remove him as the Senate Majority Leader. In November of 2018, one-third of the Senate is up for reelection. Let’s vote out Republicans, and replace them with younger, more diverse, and more progressive candidates.
How about a black woman, who is a member of the LGBTQ community, and a Muslim?
