McConnell said attacks on law enforcement agencies are "completely unacceptable.""I think attacks on law enforcement agencies is completely unacceptable," McConnell told reporters during a visit to Greater Cincinnati on Thursday. "Acts of violence are not protected by the First Amendment and people who engage in acts of violence need to pay the price for it," McConnell told reporters, one week after an armed man wearing body armor tried to gain entry to Cincinnati's FBI headquarters. "Hopefully all people in public life will push back against that," McConnell said when asked about growing threats and anti-law enforcement rhetoric following the FBI search of former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago property in Florida.


Sure Mitch. You could have gotten rid of trump in the first impeachment but you shirked your duties and F'd the country. You are just as complicit as the assholes making the threats.

Like the parasite making you sick but not sick enough for the emergency room. Keep the host alive.

Maga and the forces behind it, are more like the aliens in Independence Day. Grab all they can, leave it all in ruins, and move on.

Edit to add, taking Trump into the GOP might be one of the biggest miscalculations in History. Publicly, even McConnell has supported him because Mitch thought it was expedient to do so. I am one of the few who think Maga will take Mitch down within the next few years. the movement is bigger than Trump now.

We know McConnell could care less about the lives of any Americans.
Even FBI agents.

This is the 'man' that stood in the honored chambers, the soul of our American government, and declared that IQ45 was responsible for what happened on January 6 - the 'MAGAt Insurrection.'

This is ALSO the 'man' that directed his minions to vote against the first AND second Impeachment of IQ45.

So, in which 'Turtle' do you place your trust?
