Mitch McConnell Trades Donald Trump In For A Younger, Skinnier Model


While declaring the ex-president a has-been who’ll never work in Washington again. When we last checked in on the Mitch McConnell–Donald Trump rift, things had gotten increasingly ugly. After four years of a mutual understanding that working together was in the best interest of their individual quests to amass as much power as possible no matter the cost, the former president and former Senate majority leader had apparently decided that their alliance no longer served a purpose, and that the other one should go to hell. Following his decision to acquit Trump of inciting the January 6 mob, McConnell went on to tell reporters that there was “no question… that President Trump is practically and morally responsible for provoking the events of the day.” “We’re looking to the future, not the past. And if you want to see the future of the Republican Party, watch Tim Scott’s response to President [Joe] Biden last night. He’s the future. That’s where we’re headed. We’re not preoccupied with the past, but looking forward.”
