Sen. Mitch McConnell Attempts to Turn the Page on Trump: ‘We’re Looking to the Future, Not the Past’
Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is attempting to turn the page on former president Donald Trump after their relationship has cratered following the infamous Jan. 6 demonstration on the U.S. Capitol.
McConnell appeared on Fox News’ “The Story with Martha MacCallum” where he responded to Trump’s assertion that he has failed as a leader and should be replaced. McConnell said that the party is “looking to the future, not the past,” with the implication being that Trump is yesterday’s news.
“We’re looking into the future, not the past. And if you want to see the future of the Republican Party, watch Tim Scott’s response to President Biden last night. He’s the future, that’s where we are headed. We are not preoccupied with the past. We are moving forward,” McConnell said.

Big League Politics has reported on Sen. Scott becoming the dopey-looking new front man for the Republican establishment, getting the seal of approval from GOP bosses because he lacks the cognitive ability to rock the boat:
“Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) is the GOP establishment’s water-carrying pawn of the moment, and he gave an embarrassingly poor rebuttal to President-imposed Joe Biden’s congressional address on Wednesday night.
During his speech, Biden accused Trump-supporting Republicans of committing a terror attack worse than 9/11 on Jan. 6, despite the fact that Trump supporters caused no deaths…
The cowardly, weak Scott responded to Biden’s assertion that Republicans are terrorists by saying how nice Biden’s words sounded.
“Our president seems like a good man. His speech was full of good words. But President Biden promised you a specific kind of leadership,” Scott said.
“Our nation is starving for more than empty platitudes. We need policies and progress that bring us closer together. But three months in, the actions of the president and his party are pulling us further and further apart,” he added.
Scott also spread Black Lives Matter (BLM) talking points about institutional racism in his rebuttal to Biden.
“I know what it feels like to be pulled over for no reason. To be followed around a store while I’m shopping,” he said.
He contended that the Democrats were not strong enough in attacking the police and bragged about appeasing the Democrats at every turn as BLM terror ravages cities throughout the country.
“Believe me, I know firsthand our healing is not finished. In 2015 after the shooting of Walter Scott, I wrote a bill to fund body cameras. Last year after the deaths of Breonna Taylor and George Floyd, I built an even bigger police reform proposal,” Scott said.
“But my Democratic colleagues blocked it. I extended an olive branch, I offered amendments. But Democrats used a filibuster to block the debate from even happening. My friends across the aisle all seem to want the issue more than they wanted a solution,” he added.”
McConnell has certainly earned the slurs tossed at him by Trump and millions of Republican constituents who hate the man for betraying his country and acquiescing to massive voter fraud.
“If that were [Democratic Senate Majority Leader Chuck] Schumer instead of this dumb son of a bitch Mitch McConnell they would never allow it to happen. They would have fought it,” Trump said at his Mar-a-Lago resort earlier in the month.
McConnell will not likely return to leadership after his current term, instead opting to retire and handing off his power to another swamp rat. He will be remembered among the worst Americans ever to serve in public office.
