Putin’s Convoy, – STRIKE THAT – GOP Senators Meet With Zelensky

Via CNN:

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has welcomed to Kyiv a congressional delegation led by Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell. Zelensky said on his Instagram account that the visit “is a strong signal of bipartisan support for Ukraine from the United States Congress and the American people.” He added: “Thank you for your leadership in helping us in our struggle not only for our country, but also for democratic values and freedoms. We really appreciate it.”

In other words: Zelenskyy met with a bunch of people who thought Trump trying to extort him wasn’t worth impeaching him over.

Other than Moscow Mitch, Republican Sens. Susan Collins of Maine, John Barrasso of Wyoming and John Cornyn of Texas were also present.

I’m actually surprised Susan Collins could make it after that heinous chalking attack

Chants of "Moscow Mitch" Follow McConnell to Fancy Farm Political Event in Kentucky

Chants of “Moscow Mitch” Follow McConnell to Fancy Farm Political Event in Kentucky

The annual Fancy Farm Picnic started simply as a church picnic 139 years ago. Since then, however, it’s become Kentucky’s signature political event.

Kentucky political candidates from far and wide attend the event to stump speech exchange barbs and throw shade at their party rivals.

But this year national derision followed Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell home as attendees taunted the GOP leader with T-shirts, signs and continuous chants of “Moscow Mitch” during his speech.

McConnell, who earlier this week publicly took offense to the nickname calling it “modern day McCarthyism” during a particularity whiny speech on the Senate floor, addressed the issue again Saturday.

Democratic candidate for Treasurer Michael Bowman who isn’t very well known fired back when he took the stage after McConnell.

“It was a little dangerous getting on the stage today because I nearly tripped over the leash that the Russians put on Mitch McConnell,” he said.

Bowman went on, “I see that the senator is no longer here,” he said noticing that McConnell left the event. “I’m sure the Russians needed him more than we did. Probably to teach him new tricks. I wouldn’t know what, he already knows how to roll over.”
