Pathetic Republican Puppets Caved To Trump’s Demands



Republican Party leaders Mitch McConnell and Kevin McCarthy both failed to follow through on their threats to retaliate against Trump following the events of the January 6th insurrection attempt. Privately, both wished to see Trump get impeached and removed from power, but eventually, McConnell voted to acquit Trump in the Senate impeachment trial and McCarthy voted against certifying the results of the 2020 election.

“Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and House GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., blamed former President Donald Trump for the deadly Jan. 6 Capitol riot and vowed to push him out of politics before caving amid fear of retribution, according to a new book.

“I’ve had it with this guy,” McCarthy told a group of Republican leaders as he vowed to push Trump to “resign immediately,” according to excerpts published in The New York Times from the new book “This Will Not Pass: Trump, Biden and the Battle for America’s Future” by Times reporters Alex Burns and Jonathan Martin.

McConnell, who condemned the “failed insurrection” on the Senate floor after the riot and blamed Trump for the violence, days after the Capitol riot expressed optimism that “the Democrats are going to take care of the son of a bitch for us” ahead of the impeachment for in the House, according to the book.

But neither leader followed up on their private complaints. McCarthy, who along with most of the House GOP caucus voted to reject the election results after the riot and became one of Trump’s leading defenders, soon backed off his insistence and traveled to Mar-a-Lago to repair his relationship with Trump. McConnell voted to acquit Trump in his second impeachment trial, despite privately saying, “if this isn’t impeachable, I don’t know what is.””

  1. The only reason Trump still has homeland security is to keep him from falling into an elevator shaft or wondering around till he dies of thirst and keep him from drowning in his soup or some body else's soup

  2. Kevin's Washington voicemail…. and Mitch's Washington voicemail…. turned off.. there's a surprise.
    remember to call Congress and Senate folks. and don't honor the zip code bs. they go on national media all the time. you speak nationally. you listen nationally.
    freaking cowards….

  3. Parties impose member discipline. Individuals not only follow donors but party leaders who fund them as well through a party’s coffers. This is why Pelosi or Mitch last so long and command so many. Every politician has several layers of masters to obey. Voters are the least but are only at election a necessity

  4. TRUMP IS STUPID.

    Thank God, every country on Earth except America have NOT become followers of the Fox TV/NewMax/Facebook religion.

    WE LIVE IN A GENERATION WHERE TEASING AND LAUGHING AT AMERICANS IS THE NORM.

  5. This is why you never make a deal with the devil. He's a selfish trickster that will only use you. Sure it's fun at first, but you'll wind up regretting it later. Yes, they defeated Hillary and pushed SCOTUS even further to the right. They also completed the party's journey to towards authoritarian Fascism, dooming themselves in the long run. In a few years they'll be a far – right fringe party drawing a only a hardcore 20% nationwide.
