Donald Trump Jr. Attacks Mitch McConnell As The GOP Civil War Reaches A Fever Pitch

Donald Trump Jr. (along with his father) is in full panic mode, terrified of what the House Select Committee on the January 6 Capitol insurrection will uncover next.

Just how fearful is Junior? Enough so that he thought it’d be a good idea to attack Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) on Twitter just because McConnell dared to say that the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol was indeed a “violent insurrection,” according to The Hill:

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) criticized the Republican National Committee (RNC) for its censure of Reps. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) and Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) and broke with their language on the Jan. 6, 2021 riot, calling it a “violent insurrection.”

“It was a violent insurrection with the purpose of trying to prevent a peaceful transfer of power after a legitimately certified election. … That’s what it was,” McConnell said. 

McConnell’s pointed remarks came in response to remarks made by RNC chair Ronna McDaniel, who said the Capitol riots were “legitimate political discourse.”

McDaniel later tried to walk back those comments, but the damage had already been done, giving the appearance that the RNC supports the violent rioting which resulted in the deaths of five people.

And now Don Jr. has entered the fray, taking to Twitter to accuse McConnell of being a Democrat:

What Junior neglected to mention is that McConnell still has his job. Donald Trump doesn’t, and is under investigation in multiple states. He’s also likely to be referred to the Justice Department for his role in the Jan. 6 attack.

Don Jr. was in contact with the White House on the day of the Capitol insurrection. But if he has nothing to hide and did nothing wrong, why doesn’t he volunteer to testify in open session before the Jan. 6 committee? Probably because he knows that he’s guilty as hell and so is his old man.

It’s so much fun to watch as Republicans go after each other. If we’re lucky, they’ll rip their party into a million pieces. The country would be a hell of a lot better off if they did.
