True to form, I knew this was going to end up in a battle of wits and courage. Former President Trump’s Allies are coming to his aid against McConnell. This is just starting to get interesting. I haven’t seen any change in McConnell’s poker face.
“Mitch McConnell is done in the Republican Party. You need to realize it,” longtime Trump adviser Boris Epshteyn told right-wing strategist Steve Bannon during a Wednesday episode of his War Room podcast.
“Nobody wants to see Mitch McConnell around anymore. It’s over Mitch, it’s over,” said Epshteyn, who served as a senior adviser to Trump’s 2016 campaign and then as a White House assistant director of communications in early 2017.
“The sleazy left and the sleazy RINOs [Republicans in name only] seem to have a lot in common, don’t they? Mitch McConnell condemning the Republican National Committee for censuring Cheney and Kinzinger while behind the scenes and closed doors, he threatens his own members if they don’t fall in line,” right-wing political commentator Mark Levin said on his show.
Steve Bannon, looks to be heading the attack against Mitch McConnell with his ‘war room’ podcast.
Bannon also suggested on a Wednesday episode of his podcast that McConnell is an “establishment” leader, saying that the GOP Senate leader mocks Trump and his movement. He asked guest Representative Madison Cawthorn, a North Carolina Republican, what the GOP should do about members like McConnell.
“We do need to get rid of this establishment go-along to get-along Republicans,” Cawthorn responded. He argued that the “boat is sinking” and “it’s time to save the Republic.”
McConnell has to be getting geared up for a battle with not only former President Trump, but with his Allies who are government representatives. I knew Trump would have something to add,
Trump also issued multiple statements slamming McConnell, calling him an “Old Crow”—a nickname the former president has used repeatedly in recent months.
“For the Old Crow Mitch McConnell to say that the RNC should not censure walking Democrat sound bites, Liz Cheney and Cryin’ Adam Kinzinger, is so against what Republicans are about,” Trump said in a Wednesday statement.
I don’t see McConnell at any time soon changing his position on what happened on January six. Makes one wonder, is there something we’re missing? Is he getting ready to fight for his seat, or does he have intentions of retiring? After all, McConnell has been around a long time.
