Instead of working to provide COVID-19 relief to struggling Americans, Mitch McConnell and Republicans chose to jam through a Supreme Court nominee—when more than 62 million people have already voted. It’s despicable and they must be held accountable.
We must never forget that Merrick Garland was nominated *8 months* before an election and McConnell didn’t give him a single hearing.
Trump is a total disgrace, but Mitch McConnell may go down as the most corrupt and duplicitous politician in modern American history.
Does anybody care? Half of our people live paycheck to paycheck, and millions face hunger, eviction and lack of health care. If McConnell won't do it, we will. The first job of a new Democratic Senate will be passing a major coronavirus stimulus bill protecting working families.
Mitch McConnell just quoted Ruth Bader Ginsburg as saying that "nine is the right number" for SCOTUS.
Well fuck you selective-memory treason turtle, because she ALSO said don't fill my seat until AFTER the election.
Sen. McConnell is personally holding up relief aid to Kentucky.
What would Kentucky look like if Mitch used his power for good?
I suspect we'll be soon saying farewell to the following people in public life:
Cory Gardner (CO)
Martha McSally (AZ)
Susan Collins (ME)
Thom Tillis (NC)
Lindsey Graham (SC)
Steve Daines (MO)
John Cornyn (TX)
Mitch McConnell (KY)
McConnell adjourned the Senate until 11/9 with no COVID relief.
In 2016, I switched careers and dedicated my energy to ensuring Trump was never reelected.
Regardless of what happens next Tuesday, I will rededicate my life to making sure Mitch McConnell and the rest of his sycophants pay for holding our country hostage.
Ours is a cold and righteous anger, Mr. McConnell. When you lose your senate majority and your claws no longer pull the levers of the White House, our retribution for your brazen acts of court packing will be as bold as they are decisive. Democrats, do not fear to strike back.
I cannot emphasize enough how much McConnell's actions on Garland and Barrett have radicalized Democratic senators.
As I've argued before, McConnell's single most consequential legacy may be what he convinces Senate Democrats to do: https://t.co/loRap0bV2z https://t.co/byejXlQh8n
A true hero of 2nite is @senatemajldr
who didn't waver, flinch, or retreat. Unlike some GOP Senators in past, Mitch McConnell fought and ignored the critics to do his duty. A tip of the hat, pat on the back, and deep bow from the waist to @senatemajldr
Schatz I’m furious at what just happened. But the only thing worse than having Coney Barrett rammed down our throat would be for McConnell to remain in charge.
I’m jumping in the car to drive back to CT. I’ll pull over a few times to check progress.
But c‘mon team - LFG. https://t.co/EatsZoDBTV
I know the confirmation of Barrett sucks. There’s nothing we could’ve done about it. However, there is something we can do about Trump, McConnell, & the rest of the traitors. We can vote then out next week. They won a battle, we win the war. The Republic Stands. #Biden
Mitch McConnell got what he wanted
He laughed about denying Barack Obama his Supreme Court Justice.
Now he's up for re-election and everyone says he is going to win.
But IMAGINE if @AmyMcGrathKY
received $15 million tonight in donations!
Will you donate to Amy?
Stealing a seat at the Supreme Court, but refusing to pass a stimulus to save lies — that is a sin before God & the values of our Constitution. Representing many people of faith, we render judgment on the processes of McConnell & this Senate. This will be your undoing.
And now McConnell in his final act, adjourns the Senate without passing a Covid package. A reprehensible piece of shit! https://t.co/0RnlJMi2DU
Mitch McConnell has done about as much damage to our country as Donald Trump and Bill Barr combined.
Outraged about McConnell and Trump ramming through Amy Coney Barrett's confirmation in the middle of an election? So are we.
Republicans want you to believe this is the end of the fight. But it doesn't have to be. What comes next? Court reform.
Here's what you need to know:
Here’s Mitch McConnell on Fox News saying he thinks Amy Coney Barrett will be a “political asset” for Republican candidates
After confirming Barrett, McConnell adjourned the Senate until 11/9 with no COVID relief.
Trump and McConnell don’t give a shit that Kavanaugh can be shown to be a partisan hack and Barrett will get grief for choosing to appear in a campaign commercial. The only thing they respect is power and we have to win it and use it.
RETWEET to spread the shame and hypocrisy of Mitch McConnell, Lindsey Graham, and the entire Republican Senate. They disgrace the constitution. #VoteThemOut and spread their shame.
Democrats participated in McConnell's charade of a confirmation instead of boycotting because they didn't want to "politicize" it. Now Trump has a party with Barrett, proudly desecrating the separation of powers.
New 📺: #MondaySenateBlueWave is coming to Kentucky!
We need Lt. Col. @AmyMcGrath in the Senate and to get RID of Moscow Mitch McConnell ASAP.
Click the link in this video NOW to help us flip the Senate blue and take revenge for his theft of Supreme Court seats!
Fast-forward to Obama's presidency, when despite Democrats winning two presidential elections in a row, McConnell and GOP Senators blocked over 100 judicial nominations by Obama.
There was "no will of the people" nonsense. He just blocked them. Didn't even consider them.
Mitch McConnell adjourned the senate until 11/9.
No COVID relief. Nothing for the millions of struggling Americans.
Kentucky, why do you still keep voting for this evil fuck?
Mitch McConnell just said on TV that she’s lying. That she’s a political asset for the GOP. He’s right and she knows it. https://t.co/ry6NWpzOC4
And the second to final F U from McConnell...and there is one more coming.
Mitch McConnell just adjourned the Senate until November 9, ending the prospect of additional coronavirus relief until after the election https://t.co/nPo9nUqcCA
McConnell schools Democrats on consequences of their endless escalations in judicial wars. The confirmation of ACB is completely constitutional. Democrats' butthurt feelings do not make ACB confirmation any less legitimate. #ConfirmACBNow
