Donald Trump slams Mitch McConnell

Former President Donald Trump is venting his frustration at Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY), slamming the GOP leader as a “disloyal sleazebag” after the House Select Committee aired a series of videos of McConnell blaming Trump for the January 6 attack on the US Capitol.

Trump was reportedly watching the Committee’s Thursday night hearing and lost his temper after the panel played a clip of McConnell in which he blamed the former president for inciting the deadly insurrection.

“Is this the same Mitch McConnell who was losing big in Kentucky, and came to the White House to BEG me for an Endorsement and help? Without me he would have lost in a landslide. A disloyal sleaze bag!” Trump posted on Truth Social, his social media platform.

Trump has been fixated on McConnell’s refusal to promote his false claims that the 2020 election was stolen as well as on the GOP leader’s fiery denunciation of Trump’s actions leading to the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol.

McConnell excoriated Trump and called his actions a “disgraceful dereliction of duty.”

OnvThursday night, the Jan 6 panel played a clip of McConnell speaking on the Senate floor in which he said “there’s no question, none, that President Trump is practically and morally responsible for provoking the events of the day.”

“The people who stormed this building believed they were acting on the wishes and instructions of the president,” he said. “Having that belief was a foreseeable consequence of the growing crescendo of false statements, conspiracy theories and reckless hyperbole which the defeated president kept shouting into the largest megaphone on planet Earth.”

McConnell has since declined to speak about Trump or even mention him by name in public.

On Tuesday when asked whether he would oppose Trump’s candidacy for president in 2024 if he runs again, McConnell predicted that the GOP will have ” a crowded field” and the former president would face a lot of competition for the nomination.
