McConnell: ‘The Last Time I Spoke’ With Trump Was December 15

The last time Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) spoke with former President Donald Trump was over a month ago.

“The last time I spoke with him was the day after I had declared that Biden had obviously won the election… It would have been December the 15th,” McConnell said to reporters on Tuesday.

Watch the video below:

On Dec. 15, McConnell acknowledged then President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris as the winners of the election, as IJR previously reported.

“Many millions of us had hoped the presidential election would yield a different result. But our system of government has processes to determine who will be sworn in on January the 20th. The electoral college has spoken,” McConnell said.

He added, “Today I want to congratulate President-elect Joe Biden. The president-elect is no stranger to the Senate. He’s devoted himself to public service for many years.”

McConnell continued, “Beyond our differences, all Americans can take pride that our nation has a female vice president-elect for the very first time.”

Trump took to Twitter to respond to McConnell’s acknowledgment of the election results, as IJR previously reported.

“Mitch, 75,000,000 VOTES, a record for a sitting President (by a lot),” Trump wrote.

He added, “Too soon to give up. Republican Party must finally learn to fight. People are angry!”

The former president later called on McConnell and other Republicans to “get tougher, or you won’t have a Republican Party anymore.”

He went on, “We won the Presidential Election, by a lot. FIGHT FOR IT. Don’t let them take it away!”

Trump continued to tear into Republicans who refused to go along with his false election claims.

“I saved at least 8 Republican Senators, including Mitch, from losing in the last Rigged (for President) Election,” he wrote on Twitter. “Now they (almost all) sit back and watch me fight against a crooked and vicious foe, the Radical Left Democrats. I will NEVER FORGET!”

McConnell is reportedly leaning toward convicting Trump for his role in the riots at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6.

He said the rioters were “provoked” by Trump.

  1. Current American Fascists –> what kind of mélange –> you are feeding the beast exactly what it wants. Does not matter how “intellectually” you phrase it the end result is keep on hating. Wubba Lubba Dub-Dub This group really makes me a proud misanthropist. I stopped listening in 2008 when I finally realized it was all about the monitization of politics.

    1. Ernest: it will be less confusing for people if you click on reply, so that everyone can follow a topic more closely.

      According to you semi-quotes, you replied to me. “you are feeding the beast exactly what it wants”. I know EXACTLY what beast I am feeding, Ernest.

      “This group really makes me a proud misanthropist. I stopped listening in 2008 when I finally realized it was all about the monitization of politics.” Ernest

      You can’t have it both ways, buddy. “Whee! Look at me! I dropped out, but I want change and refuse to do anything to make change happen.”

      You are a coward, Ernest.

  2. Honestly? This doesn’t surprize me, but it does show just how petty President Who? really is. A petty, narcissistic loser who never deserved the office of president.

    1. It was evident in 2016 that Trump was morally, emotionally and intellectually unfit for the office. I still believe anyone that voted for Trump was intellectually unfit to vote.

      1. It will be interesting to see which of the current American Fascists are able to get re-elected AND it will be interesting to see just what kind of mélange CAN get elected in the next term, if current Congress members can NOT get re-elected. Q-Anon followers HAVE been successful, but can any NEW Cult-45 members get elected without Dear Leader being around?

        May you live in interesting times, huh?
