Mitch McConnell Gets Cold Busted Making Up A Fake Joe Biden Quote About Executive Orders

Mitch McConnell is a shameless asshole and liar.

If anyone needs proof of McConnell’s credentials as an asshole and liar, he gladly provided them on Thursday when he took to the floor of the Senate and began hypocritically attacking President Joe Biden for signing executive orders meant to reverse many of the horrific 220 ones that Donald Trump signed during his four years in office.

Worst of all, however, is that McConnell tried to use a quote from Biden to slam the president, remarking:

“As recently as October, now-President Biden said you can’t legislate by executive action unless you are a dictator. Well, in one week, he signed more than 30 unilateral actions.”

But Biden didn’t say that, and McConnell was cold busted by fact-checkers working for CNN and the Washington Post, both of whom pointed out that McConnell had just lied:

Also, it should be noted that McConnell never once criticized a single executive order of Trump’s, including the most glaringly disgusting ones about the border wall or immigration.

McConnell’s “fake news” soon resulted in him being pilloried on social media:

Here’s some free advice for Moscow Mitch: Crawl back in your shell and shut up. No one cares what the Senate Minority Leader has to say because you’re irrelevant.
