Mitch McConnell Gets Slammed After He Accuses Nancy Pelosi of 'Setting a New Low' With Impeachment Inquiry

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) embraces the nickname "Grim Reaper" for his refusal to bring hundreds of bills passed by the House of Representatives to the Senate floor, but there's one nickname he despises.

That nickname is now trending on Twitter: Moscow Mitch, which McConnell earned for refusing to bring election security bills to the floor.

#MoscowMitchTraitor shot up the list of trending topics in the United States after the Majority Leader appeared on the Senate floor to rebuke House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and all House Democrats for an official impeachment resolution to affirm the ongoing impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump.

The House is set to vote on the resolution on Thursday after weeks of Republican allies insisting that the impeachment inquiry was illegitimate without a vote, therefore White House officials didn't have to comply with subpoenas. The GOP has since moved the goalpost yet again, now claiming that the inquiry is still illegitimate because it didn't begin with a vote.

McConnell parroted Republican sentiments on the Senate floor.

The Majority Leader said:

"[I]nstead of setting a high bar, House Democrats seem determined to set a new low."

But the American people have longer memories than McConnell believes, and they soon called him out.

Many recalled one of McConnell's lows, in which he denied President Barack Obama his constitutional right to nominate a Supreme Court Justice after the death of Justice Antonin Scalia in early 2016. Moscow Mitch wouldn't even allow Obama's nominee, Merrick Garland, to be considered on the floor.

Nikki Haley's Blunt 'Election' Prediction Comes Back To Haunt Trump After Biden Drops Out

Earlier this year, South Carolina Republican Governor Nikki Haley made a blunt prediction about which political party would win this year's election, a statement that has garnered more attention since President Joe Biden dropped out of the 2024 race and endorsed Vice President Kamala Harris.

At 81, Biden faced increasing concerns within his party about his age and capacity to serve another term, along with fears of a potential loss to former President Donald Trump—who is 78—in November. In his announcement, Biden backed Harris as the Democratic nominee to replace him, calling it "the best decision I’ve made."
