Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell plans to never speak to President Donald Trump again. The Washington Post reported this detail in a story describing how the president has alienated his allies in Washington with the way he handled Wednesday's riot on Capitol Hill. McConnell, the Senate's top Republican who will become minority leader once new Democratic Sens. Jon Ossoff and Rev. Raphael Warnock are sworn in, had been 'estranged' from Trump in recent weeks, The Post wrote.(Snip) Even before Wednesday's riot, McConnell was set to break with Trump - as he warned senators not to join a House GOP effort to challenge

Comments:

That's our GOP. Did Principled Mitch ever refuse to speak to any Democrat, to include his esteemed former peer Ted Kennedy the murderer?

That will save Trump a lot of money - Mitch won't come knocking asking for campaign contributions in 2022 or for any special elections.

Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't McConnell's father in law the owner of a large shipping company in China? And isn't this shipping company backed by the Chinese government? So when her father needs a new ship, China will build it for him? That being the case doesn't all of that compromise Mitch McConnell in any way when President Trump tries to level the playing field when dealing with China? Maybe he should resign from the Senate before they ask Pres.Trump to leave.

Ooohh. I know that changes my mind about the Turtle. hey Mitch, President Trump did nothing. This was all a set up. We know it. You won’t convince us otherwise, in fact, now that you are the minority leader, representing China, why do we care what you think. If somehow President Trump, would to be inaugurated, I guess that means Ol’ Mitch will just resign, or flee to China.

Mitch you lying POS, why don't you ask your wife about the concentration camps in China why she did not open her mouth about that and quit her job then? The secret trips that you and your wife regularly take to China should be more on a front page so that you can tell us who you met with over there, other than visiting 'your charity' you disgusting liar! Let's hope that they throw you out before your term is ending because you are an old tottering idiot who does not know what time of the century it is! You have done nothing for the GOP other than suggest 3 spineless Rinos for the Supreme Court and you pushed them through. I have yet to see that they will vote on anything that will suggest they are for Republicans. I doubt that will ever happen. Everything you touch has always turned out to be good news for the Dems.

Bill Gates has been accused of hypocrisy after entering a bid to buy the world's largest private jet operator, just one month before he releases a book preaching about climate change. The Microsoft boss's company Cascade Investment entered the bidding war for Signature Aviation Friday, teaming up with Blackstone Group to make a $4.3 billion play for the British private jet servicing company. Cascade and Blackstone are now going head-to-head with private equity firm Carlyle, which had already made an initial takeover approach.

The relief plan will target state and local governments as well as provide new support for people who have lost their jobs as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, he said. Biden’s original plan was for a bill under $1 trillion but he said on Friday that “economic research confirms that with conditions like the crisis today, especially with such low-interest rates, taking immediate action—even with deficit financing—is going to help the economy.” Biden, who plans to unveil details on Thursday,

Powell recently claimed that Trump offered her a White House job to investigate voter fraud, but that senior White House staff—fearful of her wild claims of fraud—proceeded to block her from Trump’s orbit.(Snip) A Twitter spokesperson cited their links to the QAnon

Big tech has launched an unprecedented and coordinated cyber attack on President Donald Trump and his 74,000,000 voters. As this was happening — the GOP was dead silent. On Friday, Twitter permanently banned hundreds, if not thousands, of Trump supporters and prominent allies — before banning the president himself. Nearly every account that helped to promote the Stop the Steal rallies or challenge the election results were banned, including Ali Alexander, Michael Coudrey, Gen. Mike Flynn, Sidney Powell, and Lin Wood. Countless smaller accounts that supported the president were also getting suspended in a seemingly constant rate. The same has been happening over on Facebook and Instagram.

During a portion of an interview set to air on Sunday’s broadcast of CBS’ “60 Minutes” that was released Friday, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said that President Donald Trump is a “deranged, unhinged, dangerous” president of the United States. Pelosi said, “Well, sadly, the person who’s running the executive branch is a deranged, unhinged, dangerous president of the United States, and only a number of days until we can be protected from him. But he has done something so serious that there should be prosecution against him.”Pelosi added that invoking the 25th Amendment is still on the table
