1. Trump paid him $130K for his silence, too.

3. There are few politicians as slimy as McTurtle today.

And that is saying something.

A greater negative influence on American politics than anyone else in the past couple decades.

14. He always stays out of this stuff as much as possible.

His power comes from money that he directs to get people elected who will vote as he wishes.

The money comes, of course, from big donors with whom he has very beneficial relationships. When it's time for him to get reelected, his donors supply the means to bury his opponent under a mud flow of negative coverage.

Every once in a while a brief statement from the senate majority leader is called for, and he gives a brief one. But otherwise making statements to "the people" or trying to schmooze them up is a big waste of his time, and he has said exactly that before.

17. K & R. Truth.

I've watched McConnell for many years and he never, never criticizes another Repug. He follows St. Ronnie's 11th commandment to the letter, and as you said he's been in the pocket of big tobacco, big coal and the healthcare industry all along.

When McConnell uses the term "the people of Kentucky", I've always known exactly who he means and it ain't me or anyone I know.

22. "the people of Kentucky...". Probably has them all

in storage on his phone.

Is Chinese big business still on that list? I'd read he was their man in DC since Tiananmen Square.

18. Even if 45* referred to Taiwan in the same terms, he would stay mute

Taiwan being the country where his bride - Elaine Chou - was born.

McTurtle doesn’t have the backbone, or carapace, to tell 45* to shut the fuck up.

Kentucky, the ball is in your court. After the current administration of your beloved Commonwealth decided to require Medicaid recipients to “earn their keep,” you have a duty to deny reelection to this abominable Senator in 2020. And the state legislators, while you’re at it.

We should all live so long!

/s/ an expatriate Kentuckian.

23. Turtle is 2 Senators away from becoming a Minority Leader....

and the irony here was IIRC, the meeting where the incident took place WAS with Senators (with no House reps).
