Mitch McConnell today not only acknowledged the Electoral College win of Biden and Harris, but also requested that his caucus support the results.

McConnell urges GOP senators not to object to Electoral College vote - The Hill



McConnell warned that any GOP senator who signed onto a House Republican objection to a state’s electoral votes would then force the Senate to debate and vote on the objection, putting fellow GOP senators in a bad position


McConnell pretty much announced the end of the Trump Presidency today, even though he still needs Trump supporters in Georgia's Senate Elections on Jan 5th.

He didn't just acknowledge the Biden win ... he bascially told the Republicans in the Senate that if they did support some House resolution to object they would be on the Naughty List.

What prompted this strong and pre-emptive move on McConnell's part? Has McConnell revealed himself now as Deep State as well?

Can he be fired for his disloyalty?

Interesting question. Maybe he's setting himself up to be the "grand unifier" with the Biden White House?

I guess he's rolled the dice and decided that a Trump third party doesn't bother him. Perhaps he knows what's coming down the road for Mr. Trump?

It just seems like a very bold move for McConnell.

My guess is he recognizes the damage President Trump is doing to the GOP and is trying to minimize effects in Georgia so that he can keep his majority Senate.

Regardless, it's a good move and I applaud it. We need to move on.

He clearly hopes that 6 years will be long enough for the good people of Kentucky to forget he's breaking from the will of those who voted for him. Of course he'll be 84 in 2026, so it is also quite possible he's doing the standard "RINO becomes a jellyfish at the end of his political lifespan" act we've seen from John McCain, Arlen Specter, and John Warner in the past.

Hahahahaha you guys know how this is going to go-

McConnell is part of the swamp. He only did something for the country when he was blocking the House’s bills.

If you hold a political office and you’re not on the Trump train, you’re deep state.

Edit- also, he took money from Dominion back in 2019. UNDENIABLE PROOF OF ELECTION FRAUD!!!! BUSTED!!! BOOOOOOOM!!! KAAABLOOOEY BOOOMBABOOM!

In fairness, McConnell has never been very popular among the traditionalists and Conservatives in the GOP voter base. The Turtle was possibly the most despised RINO back when the TEA Party made their push to bring traditional conservatism back to the GOP. Yes, there were bigger, more egregious RINOs in DC... but the McCains and the (at the time) soon to be ousted John Boehner, but none were in as lofty a position as McConnell.

Between the "Death to the GOP" chanting and now dumbass decisions like this one from McConnell, I wonder if the establishment "Republicans" are looking to repeat their strategy from 2008 to 2016... give the Left full control for the first 2 years, let America realize what a massively destructive to freedom and anathematic to liberty and prosperity full liberal control is, preside over a bloodbath in the House and Senate and hold rule without being POTUS for the next 6 years. It permits the RINOs the position of being able to approve of middle of the road infringements on Rights and overtaxation alongside continuation of Team America: World Police crap while blaming it all on whatever retarded twerp the Dems have in the POTUS chair. The left will blame them for "obstructing" when they refuse the more idiotic of the Dem POTUS' ideas... but that just makes the RINOs appear strong and protective of the country in the eyes of the moderates and those on the Right who fail to realize exactly what conservatism is all about.

McConnell is doing his best to go out with a whimper just like the rest of his ilk before him. He's old and he's in a "no wake zone". And I really don't want to know anything about his... urges.

To be fair though, I always defined the "deep state" as "those who never leave." Everyone from long-serving congress critters to judges. Agency personnel are also on that list. Long term government people who write policy and effect changes outside of the purview of congressional (or any) oversight.

Mitch Mcconnell is definitely deep state.

Color me shocked!!!

No one should be surprised by this, McConnell is not a friend of Trump's. He's a politician through and through, one of the long-time swamp-dwellers that needs to retire. He does little for anyone but himself.

Mitch is worth 22.3 million.

Not bad on a salary of 175,000/year.

Guess he saved his pennies and ate Ramen.

Yep, we're on the same page.

The way a challenge works is this. If a member of the House objects to the electoral count of a state and a member of the Senate agrees there will be a debate in each of the House and Senate. Each will then vote. In order for that state's count to be overturned, both must have a majority vote to do so.

Do you see where this is going? Do you see the problem? McConnell does. He may be a jackass but he isn't stupid.

That's funny since, if I remember correctly, there was some questions about McConnell's re-election this year. Sounds like somebody might be afraid of being exposed.

Ramen are Japanese, Mitch was either chowing down on Zhajiangmian or going after that delicious Chinese dish "Fang-Fang" (I don't know what that is, but it seems to be very popular in DC these days)
