Mitch McConnell Breaks His Silence On His New Nickname: “Calling Me Moscow Mitch Is Over The Top”

Aww. His feelings are hurt.

While Donald Trump’s administration has been crumbling before his eyes since the very beginning of his presidency — someone is always either getting canned or turning in their resignation before they’re been associated with him too long to get a job anywhere other than the local fast food joint, and nearly every official in his administration has “acting” tacked to the front of their job title — there are still a select few individuals in our government that are more than willing to do Donald’s bidding. And Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is at the top of that list.

The man eats, sleeps, and breathes a heady combination of Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin.

He’s done everything he can from his position in the Senate to block any efforts from the House to secure this nation’s voting system (because how else will Donald get a second term without the Russians easily being able to hack our shit once again?), he’s been nothing but a disgrace on everything from climate change to gun control, and oh yeah, he’s got a shit-load of investments that beeline straight back to the Kremlin.

So, his newest moniker of “Moscow Mitch” is especially befitting.

But boy, he doesn’t like it.

Mitch just sat down from an interview with NBC’s Hugh Hewitt where the two touched on the topic of his newest nickname, and Mitch was quick to point out that he wasn’t fond of it.

“Senator, let me begin by talking to you about nicknames,” Hewitt began. “I played the Cocaine song because Cocaine Mitch is a popular hashtag among people like me. Grim Reaper is as well. But Moscow Mitch is McCarthyism. That’s absolutely despicable. What do you think of the last one?”

“Yeah, I mean, it’s modern-day McCarthyism,” Mitch responded, before he continued to whine about his perceived mistreatment. “Unbelievable for a Cold Warrior like me who spent a career standing up to the Russians to be given a moniker like that. It’s an effort to smear me. You know, I can laugh about things like the Grim Reaper, but calling me Moscow Mitch is over the top.”

You know what’s really over the top, Mitch? I’ll tell ya. What’s really over the top is ignoring our nation’s constitution, the very same one you swore under oath to protect, in an effort to ensure that you, your cronies, and Donald Trump can continue to line your pockets with dollar bills that reek of Putin’s ass crack. That’s what’s “over the top.”
