McCONNELL: I Didn’t Watch Dems' January 6 Panel Because ‘I Was Busy Doing Work’

posted by Hannity Staff - 7.27.21

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell weighed in on the January 6th Committee at the US Capitol Tuesday afternoon; telling reporters he was unable to watch the Democrats’ panel because he was too busy doing work.

“Did you watch any of the hearing today?” asked one reporter.

“No, I didn’t,” said the Minority Leader.

“Why not?” pressed the journalist.

“I was busy doing work. I serve in the Senate,” he added.

 

McConnell called out his progressive colleagues earlier in the day for their so-called “socialist shopping list.”

“Our distinguished colleague, Chairman Bernie Sanders, may not have won the last presidential primary, but on the Democratic side, it sure looks like his socialist philosophy is winning the war,” said McConnell.

“House Democrats, the far left, and the administration keep floating this endless socialist shopping list and they expect every Senate Democrat to fall in line. They want to extend tax giveaways, they also want money and mandates to push the entire federal fleet to electric vehicles,” he added.

 

Sanders set his sights on billionaires Jeff Bezos and Richard Branson last week after the two businessmen flew their own vehicles into space.

“Am I supposed to be impressed that a billionaire went to space while he’s paid zero in federal income taxes some years and the workers at his company struggle to afford their medical bills, rent, and food for their kids? Nope. It’s time to invest in working people here on Earth,” posted the Democrat Socialist on Twitter.

 

Bezos flew his company Blue Origin’s rocket 62 miles above the earth Tuesday morning; paving the way for a new era of commercial space tourism in the years ahead.

After his flight the Amazon founder donated $200 million to charity.

'FANTASYLAND': McConnell Says It’s ‘Inconceivable’ 67 Senators Will Vote to Remove Trump

posted by Hannity Staff - 11.19.19

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell threw more cold-water on the Democrats’ impeachment frenzy Tuesday; saying “it’s inconceivable” that 67 Senators will vote to remove President Trump from office.

“It’s inconceivable to me that it would be 67 votes to remove the president from office,” McConnell told reporters during the third day of the public impeachment inquiry.

 

McConnell made similar comments last week.

“I can’t imagine a scenario under which President Trump would be removed from office with 67 votes in the Senate,” McConnell told USA Today.

“Nothing is happening because House Democrats seized with Trump derangement syndrome are consumed with this argument with the president,” he said.

McConnell made similar comments last week; telling reporters “I will say I’m pretty sure how it’s likely to end. If it were today, I don’t think there’s any question it would not lead to a removal.”

Meanwhile, House Democrats refuse to commit to a formal timeline of their investigation into the President’s dealings with Ukraine.

“I haven’t had a lot of time to pay attention to the president’s tweets and the legal implications of them. I just think that was totally wrong and inappropriate and typical of the president,” Pelosi told CBS News.

“I have no idea,” she responded when asked if the process could drag-on into 2020.

AOC ERUPTS: Ocasio-Cortez SLAMS Mitch McConnell, Says He ‘Doesn’t Want to Save the Planet’

posted by Hannity Staff - 3.26.19

Embattled Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez unloaded on Sen. Mitch McConnell Tuesday; bizarrely suggesting the GOP leader “doesn’t want to save the planet” and will be “drinking oil in 30 years.”

“What McConnell’s doing is that he’s trying to rush this bill to the floor without a hearing… without working through committee — because he doesn’t want to save our planet. Because he thinks we can drink oil in 30 years when all our water is poisoned,” Ocasio-Cortez reportedly said.

Ocasio-Cortez was referencing McConnell’s recent decision to bring her ‘Green New Deal’ to a full Senate vote Tuesday; saying “I could not be more glad that the American people will have the opportunity to learn precisely where each one of their senators stand on the ‘Green New Deal.’”
