Before all the haters have their say, I’m sure some of McConnell’s closest friends are black.

But you and Obama differ in that only one of you would still have slaves if he could.

I’m sure he smirked a good smirk after that delicious bon mot!

I can’t say what I want to say lest I get a visit from some officious people… But it involves LSD and very hungry pit bulls.

ETA- I don’t want to prejudice pit bulls. It could be very hungry and ill-tempered Corgis, I don’t care.

“You know, I find myself once again in the same position as President Obama,” McConnell responded. “We both oppose reparations and we both are the descendants of slave owners.”

McConnell: wily and vile. It is quite the combination, through much evil can be achieved.

The only similarity I can think of between McConnell and Obama is that both are/were trapped by Mitch’s evil shadow.

No shame. Not one fking ounce of shame. What a despicable piece of trash.

Quite apart from the equivalence McConnell is drawing here, his argument is fallacious: the fact that two things may be true of two people doesn’t address the merits of the issue at hand.

So, it’s dumb in addition to being offensive.

And thus McConnell is the perfect servant (slave?) to Trump.

You want to give them indigestion or what? Animal cruelty right there.

Just throw McTurtle in with Trump, Epstein, Barr, Jr. and the rest inside of a Supermax facility after having distributed viagra to all of the other inmates.

Let nature take care of the rest.

My only response is below:

If we all pledge to give Amy $$ everyday that McConnell pisses us off, even if just $5, think of the ‘bank’ she will have to drive THIS EVIL SOB INTO THE GROUND!

There are definitely some hard cases (no pun intended) in the maximum security joints, but I’m willing to believe that even they would pass on that opportunity.

Not so.

Ex: voters had an opportunity to pay back ‘Cecil’ for Garland and a pivotal number chose not to.
