Watch: McConnell Teaches Dems A Historical Lesson After Childish Celebratory Signing
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell went on Thursday morning on the Senate floor after the disgusting celebratory signing conducted by Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and fellow Democrats and gave Democrats a historical lesson.
“That took place, Madam President, at a table with a political slogan stuck onto it. And they posed, they posed afterwards for smiling photos.
And the Speaker distributed souvenir pens – souvenir pens – to her own colleagues emblazoned with her golden signature, that literally came in on silver platters. Pens literally came in on silver platters. Golden pens on silver platters. A souvenir to celebrate the moment.
Now, I seem to remember Democrats falling over themselves to say they did not see impeachment as a long-sought political win. House Democrats said over and over they recognized the gravity and the seriousness of this action and of course they had only come to it reluctantly.
Well, nothing says seriousness and sobriety like handing out souvenirs. As though this were a happy bill-signing instead of the gravest process in our Constitution.”
McConnell then referenced the Founding Fathers stating that they knew that it was possible a political party could use impeachment as a weapon.
“But fortunately,” McConnell stated, “they did something about it. They did not give both the power [to impeach] and the power to remove to the House.”
He then took one last swipe at Democrats and said that House Democrats “hour is over. The Senate’s time is at hand. It’s time for this proud body to honor our founding purpose.”
Some have blamed Senator McConnell for being mild-mannered but for the fourth day in a row he has taken to the Senate floor to rail on Democrats. You can really tell that this latest effort by the democrats has really gotten under his skin. I don’t think the Democrats are ready for what President Trump and Senate Republicans have in store for them during this impeachment trial.
