    Mitch MCConnel has slowed democracy to a crawl for his special interests...and of course his Chinese wife and her special interest in her Chinese shipping co. In CHINA...

    Thank you Sam for shining the light on the Republicans behind trump. I hope you do more episodes on them to highlight what they are doing. trump writes and says crazy things to distract the media and people to what the vile republicans like Mcconnell are doing in the background.

    McConnell is sneaky. He acts as a gatekeeper for the GOP agenda while restricting issues on the Democratic side. He was and is not fair. He does not even care on whit for what is right or wrong. To be gentle I will say he’s morally challenged, but you know what I mean. He has repressed his conscience so much he’s turned himself into a sociopath.

    I totally agree. The minute Mitch McConnell does not get his $40 million a year in bribes anymore from Trump's government, he will drop Trump.

    Has anyone ever actually asked McConnell how he, as Senate leader, could justify accepting millions of dollars from Russian oligarchs during the last five years? Don't you think that might be something he should be given an opportunity to explain to the public? After all, doesn't that appear to be an incredible conflict of interest since he has led voting (and non-voting) on critically important Russia-related national security issues? True, McConnell makes every effort to avoid public exposure of any kind except to make some kind of occasional hypocritical and judgmental pronouncement about a political opponent, but this question is an important one that he has avoided elaborating on for far too long. Can we have an explanation as to why he received so much Russian money and is so tight-lipped about it? Can you imagine what he would be saying if he hadn't been singled out for Russian largesse and one of his opponents had? I suspect McConnell would be quite vocal if that were the case and we'd be hearing a lot about anti-American or unpatriotic or traitorous behavior. Instead we hear nothing....

    Whatever happens in "The Room" stays in "The Room."
    At least until the dead turtle-man body starts stinking up the whole building and is hauled out, thrown into to an industrial coleslaw shredder, shop-vac'd into a 55 gallon drum, and trucked out to the farm for hog slop.
    (Admittedly, that certainly would never happen, but it does provide some relief to write it. Anyway, what farmer in his right mind would feed shredded McConnell gore to his hogs?)

    The way the Democratic presidential candidates should have responded to the question in the first debate in regard how to deal with Mitch McConnell should have been to apply Article II, Section 3 of the Constitution on Presidential Powers which enables the president to call a special session of Congress 24/7 and keep them in the capital building and isolated from the corporate lobbyists until they resolve issues like healthcare, gun control and immigration.

    Mitch is pure, distilled, obstructionist evil. Kentucky rates towards the bottom of the states in education, healthcare, life expectancy, economy and fiscal stability yet he still gets re-elected. What exactly has he done all these years with his enormous power to benefit and lift the average Kentuckian towards a higher quality of life? The facts say he's done absolutely nothing.

  • Ann Horstman
    Ann Horstman 21 day ago

    I am from Kentucky and the sheep (Republicans) in my state love McConnell. I think they hate democrats so much that will keep an obstructionist in office. He only attends meetings with paid supporters. He will not answer any phone calls and in fact his answering machine is always full. He only wanted to be head of the Senate. He and his wife are dirty and wealthy and why he appeals to the poor in Kentucky just boggles the mind. People in Kentucky needs to wake up and see what he has not done for them. And 45 and Pence need to stay out of Kentucky stumping for the turtle. The 3 of them make me sick. We do not need to pay our police for their security when we are already strapped for money with our Pension crisis.

    One item for which McConnell did NOT use the filibuster was his effort to remove Russian oligarch Deripaska from the sanctions list. Despite many Republicans wanting to keep Deripaska's sanctions in place, McConnell prevailed. The sanctions were lifted. Deripaska then returned the favor by announcing plans to invest $200 million on opening an aluminum plant in McConnell's home state.
