There is no doubt that Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY), the Senate Majority Leader affectionately known as “Cocaine Mitch,” is going to go down as a legend for his work at getting a boatload of good Constitutionalist judges on the federal courts, outfoxing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) in the impeachment battle and laying waste to Democratic dreams of unseating him.
McConnell is now standing behind President Donald Trump and backing up his call for looking into all the fraud claims surrounding the contested races in the battleground states.

He even laid out the hypocrisy of the Democrats daring to question Trump’s right to question the counts after they’ve spent four years trying to undermine Trump as the duly-elected president.
But when a reporter asked him if he thought there was any fraud in his race or any other Senate race, Cocaine Mitch just dropped a classic line, so well done that it even made all the reporters laugh.

Savage. What finishes it off is the little grin at the end. Can we say Mitch is the GOAT? When you even crack up the reporters who likely wanted the other person, you know you’ve done well.
The media had pitched challengers like Amy McGrath in Kentucky, Sara Gideon in Maine and Jamie Harrison in South Carolina as having real shots against the people Democrats were targeting for take down: McConnell, Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC). But they were all defeated by big margins. It wasn’t even close. Which should be a lesson to Democrats but probably wouldn’t be. You can’t just pour big out of state money into a race and expect that you’re going to win against senators with a long history and base in their states.
McConnell was also just reelected as the Republican Leader.
