McConnell Gets Hilariously Trolled For His Pathetic ‘Looking Out For Middle America’ RNC Speech

On the last night of the Republican National Convention, Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) made an appearance in the form of a taped address  in which he praised Donald Trump and promised great things would take place in the next four years if Trump manages to get another term in office.

In other words, Moscow Mitch lied.


Part of the speech drew special attention on social media: When McConnell declared that he’s “always looking out for Middle America.” Sure thing, Mitch, and Trump never cheats on his wives, pays off porn stars, compliments Putin, or lies every half-second.


Reaction was swift and harsh, and on-point:

Maybe Mitch needs to retire so he doesn’t have to humiliate himself like he did tonight. But since he clearly has no morals or shame, it’s safe to bet he won’t.

‘Moscow Mitch’ Gets Caught Carrying Water For Russia Again

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has repeatedly refused to allow bipartisan legislation that would protect American elections from reaching the Senate floor, accusing Democrats of wanting to pass bills that would give them an unfair advantage in the 2020 election.

McConnell’s recalcitrance when it comes to defending our election process even earned him a new nickname, Moscow Mitch, which was given to him by MSNBC host Joe Scarborough.


For his part, McConnell accused those suggesting he’s protecting Russia by not letting election-security bills of engaging in McCarthyism, remarking on the Senate floor:

“I don’t normally take the time to respond to critics in the media when they have no clue what they’re talking about, but, this modern-day McCarthyism is toxic, and damaging, because of the way it warps our entire public discourse.”

And yet, once again we see McConnell involved in an issue that suggests his loyalties may be divided between his country of birth and the one being run by Russian dictator Vladimir Putin.

According to a bombshell new report from Politico, two former staffers in McConnell’s Senate office lobbied Congress and the Treasury Department regarding a new aluminum mill in McConnell’s home state of Kentucky. That mill is being built by Russian aluminum giant Rusal:

“The Russian firm was only able to make the investment after it won sanctions relief from penalties the Treasury Department initially imposed in April 2018 on Rusal and other companies owned by Oleg Deripaska, a Russian oligarch and Kremlin ally accused of facilitating Moscow’s nefarious activities, such as seizing land in Ukraine, supplying arms for the Syrian regime and meddling in other countries’ elections.”


Yes, the sanctions were lifted by Secretary of the Treasury Steven Mnuchin, exactly as McConnell wanted them to be.

So two former staffers for McConnell went to bat for Rusal, the sanctions were lifted, and three months later Rusal announced it would invest in the Kentucky aluminum mill. Interesting time, isn’t it?


Here’s another question that needs to be asked: How did McConnell manage to increase his net worth from $2 million to $26 million in just ten years? He earns a salary of $193,400 a year:

Let’s be clear and not equivocate: Until Mitch McConnell proves otherwise, it should be assumed that he’s working as an agent of the Russian government and is a threat to U.S. national security. There can be no doubt who owns and controls him, and their address is in Moscow, not the Bluegrass State.

Mitch McConnell Just Got Caught Committing Economic Treason

Recently, the Washington Post blew the lid off a growing scandal surrounding Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), proving that McConnell lifted sanctions on a Russian oligarch in exchange for the building of a $200 million aluminum processing plant in Ashland, Kentucky.


Specifically, McConnell blocked a Senate measure that would have kept sanctions in place on Oleg Deripaska, a the owner of the Russian aluminum giant Rusal. Deripaska is known to have close ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin and is also connected to the Russian mafia. Deripaska’s ties to Russian organized crime have earned him a spot on a State Department list that prevents him from entering the United States.

And as Rachel Maddow explained perfectly Wednesday evening on her show, here’s how McConnell sold out to Russia and Deripaska:

“In this particular instance, his state, an economically disadvantaged part of his state, got a $200 million investment from a kremlin-connected oligarch immediately after McConnell personally stepped in to make sure sanctions on that oligarch were dropped, despite his role in what happened to our election in 2016 and despite bipartisan support even from his own party for those sanctions. But don’t just look back at this. Look forward. Right? I mean, the FBI says Russia’s going to do to our election in 2020 what they did to it in 2016.”


Even worse, even if a Democratic president who follows Trump wants to reimpose sanctions on Deripaska and Rusal, would that even be possible in light of what it would mean to the economy of the Bluegrass State? Maddow laid out the bind the Rusal deal places the country in:

“You’re not going to be able to sanction him no matter what he does to our 2020 election or whatever else he does at all. It would strangle Kentucky in the process. There would be hundreds, if not thousands of American jobs riding on anything you did to that Russian guy’s company or, frankly, anything you did to bother him. He now holds all of those American jobs in his hand. The U.S. Government does anything to bother him, he can take them away at will. You can’t do anything to his company, not without him exerting that leverage over Kentucky in response. And that damage has already been done.”


Mitch McConnell has committed economic treason. He has given a Russian company a foothold in the United States where it can do as it pleases and more easily exert influence over our national security via threats and outright bribery.

While Donald Trump is a clear and present danger to the United States, it now appears that Mitch McConnell is the biggest threat we face as a nation.
