Mitch McConnell did not hold back as he threw Donald Trump under the bus for the unpatriotic seditious insurrection on the Capitol of the United States.
Mitch McConnell comes clean?

“The mob was fed lies,” McConnell said. “They were provoked by the President and other powerful people. And they tried to use fair and violence to stop a specific proceeding of the first branch of the Federal Government which they did not like. But we pressed on. We stood together and said an angry mob will not get veto power over the rule of law in our nation. Not even for one night.”
But one should not give McConnell any kudos. He could have prevented the insurrection if he had come out very early and let Trump’s enablers and sycophants know that the election was one of the fairest elections in our history.
But as corporations soured on the insurrection and started withholding dollars from the Republican Party, McConnell likely believed he had to act.
Disney has had enough.
So has Coca-Cola, Walmart, Hallmark, Amazon, Airbnb and Mastercard.
After last week's violent riot on Capitol Hill in Washington DC, which left five people dead, dozens of the world's biggest corporations are pulling their political donations from America's Republicans.
The companies — many consistent Republican donors in the past — are targeting the 147 Republicans who still challenged the results of America's presidential election after the Capitol building was stormed by Donald Trump's supporters on January 6.
Some companies say those Republicans will receive no donations for the rest of their political lives.
“The insurrection at our nation's Capital was a direct assault on one of our country's most revered tenets: the peaceful transition of power,” a Disney spokesman told Politico this week.
“In the immediate aftermath of that appalling siege, Members of Congress had an opportunity to unite — an opportunity that some sadly refused to embrace.
“In light of these events, we have decided we will not make political contributions in 2021 to lawmakers who voted to reject the certification of the Electoral College votes.”
Let’s be clear, Mitch McConnell is no less a fascist than Donald Trump. He simply knows how to put a facade over it.
