Mitch McConnell was happy to ride the wave of wins under President Trump.
But now that he isn’t in office, he has fully turned on him.
And Mitch McConnell’s new anti-Trump lie will your jaw on the floor.
Since the election, Republicans have shown their true colors.
While some notable exceptions have stood up for Trump since the election, many have completely abandoned him, either publicly or privately.
Mitch McConnell was mostly silent, and refused to outright condemn Trump.
That is until the violence at the Capitol on January 6.
Following the violence, he spoke out against the protesters at the Capitol, largely sparing Trump from his attacks.
But just a day before the inauguration, McConnell completely came out against Trump.
From the floor of the Senate to directly blame Trump for violence at the Capitol, saying that Trump “provoked” them.
“The mob was fed lies,” McConnell said.
“They were provoked by the President and other powerful people, and they tried to use fear and violence to stop a specific proceeding of a branch of the federal government which they did not like.”
McConnell proved that he is a coward through these comments.
Under pressure, he turned on the most popular Republican history in modern history, all to appease the radical Left and establishment Republicans.
Former President Trump has been very good to McConnell, despite him being one of the most vocal anti-Trump figures during his 2016 campaign for President.
Trump backed McConnell in his recent re-election bid, likely saving his career, as McConnell was down in the polls before Trump threw his endorsement behind him.
But McConnell has no loyalty, and at this point believes it is better for him politically to turn on Trump.
Currently, a lot is at stake when it comes to the Senate.
They are expected to commence Trump’s impeachment trial in the coming days or weeks, and if they succeed in convicting him, he will be barred from holding office in the future.
Previously, McConnell has said he wouldn’t support impeachment, but following statements like this, there is no telling what he will do.
It will likely be political suicide for him if does back convicting Trump in the trial.
But McConnell won’t be up for re-election for another six years.
