Former Clinton Aide Tries to Justify Heckling Mitch McConnell. Here’s His Excuse.

There’s no justifiable excuse for this behavior.

Published

Philippe Reines, a former aide to Hillary Clinton, attempted to justify heckling Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell at a restaurant by citing the fact that he kept Merrick Garland off of the Supreme Court.

McConnell and his wife were out having dinner in Louisville’s Havana Rumba Friday evening when their meal was interrupted by protesters, a scene that has become all too familiar in recent days.

“Mitch McConnell is a pretty stoic guy. Just the notion, when you said Mitch McConnell and TMZ I had to do a double take. I think he’s sitting there and he’s thinking a couple things, first of all, ‘I have capital police that are ten feet away,’ two, he’s thinking, ‘I got my wife Elaine who is better than the capitol police,’ three, he’s thinking, ‘Merrick Garland verse my leftovers,’” Reines said during an appearance on MSNBC Sunday morning.

“He’s getting away with murder and net/net I think he thinks this is the worst he gets that’s fine, but this is such a made-up problem. Again, it is like professor Butler said, it is the first Amendment and there is a difference and it goes to something Dr. Greer said, people are doing this because there is no other opportunity or no other oversight,” he continued.

“The Republican Congress has basically pledged fealty to Donald Trump. People are doing these things because it’s all that’s left. What are they doing? They’re denying Sarah Sanders her supper,” Reines stated. “They’re serenading Kirstjen Nielsen in a Mexican restaurant. They’re heckling Stephen Miller just for being Stephen Miller.”

What happened to McConnell is just the latest in a string of incidents involving protesters who have interrupted or harassed a conservative politician in public.

Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and his wife were driven from a restaurant, as was White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders. It’s a sleazy, disrespectful tactic, but that hasn’t stopped these folks from employing it.

For McConnell, this is the third time it’s happened, which has got to be getting very old right about now.

Watch: Boy Pummeled By Black Teens for Wearing Trump 2020 Hat On School Bus [Video]

This kid may just grow up to be the next best fighter in boxing history…

Liberals will remain silent on this story. Privately, they will cheer on the attackers for beating a white boy simply for wearing his pro-Trump hat on the school bus. Thanks, Obama. That’s the problem. Liberals in Congress and the mainstream media refuse to acknowledge anti-Trump attackers because they know such violent humans will be voting Democrat in 2020 and forever on. Pretty sad. Check this out, via New York Times: The boy’s mother on Thursday released a 21-second video of the Nov. 21 attack in Hamilton County, where two girls and three boys are seen relentlessly punching him as other students look on and scream in the background. The boy, identified as Tyler, was assaulted for previously wearing to school a Trump 2020 hat that he bought “with his own money” at a flea market several weeks earlier, his mother said. […] The teen was then “steadily” bullied on the bus, getting “tripped” and verbally abused before the situation culminated in the beatdown that required a trip to the hospital, his mother claimed. WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7QTm5AAZGbA&feature=emb_logo It’s not safe to be a young Trump supporter in school these days. Then again, it’s not really safe to be a Trump supporter outside of school, either. Unfortunately, the media is more concerned on attempting to cover for the likes of Jussie Smollett and Indian activist Nathan Phillips than reporting what truly matters. Case in point: a high schooler was assaulted for wearing his MAGA hat. MSM’s response? Crickets. WATCH: https://twitter.com/RyanAFournier/status/1100462367387910145?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1100462367387910145&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fdailycaller.com%2F2019%2F02%2F26%2Fstudents-maga-apparel-ripped-off%2F How awful is that? People are still, to this day, triggered by a hat, despite the fact that minority unemployment under President Trump is at an all-time low. Where’s the logic? It’s time for journalists to be journalists again and report these types of instances.

Dem Misquotes POTUS In Impeachment Hearing, CNN Agrees With Trump It Was On Purpose

They admitted the truth?

Hold the phone! CNN just reported in favor of President Donald Trump? Either pigs are flying or the sky is falling because something is clearly off, here. But it happened. It actually happened. You’d have to imagine CNN President Jeff Zucker isn’t too pleased, considering he has an agenda to take POTUS down. Aw, shucks. Here’s the deal, via Daily Wire: CNN, which is often hostile in its coverage of President Donald Trump, admitted on Thursday that Trump was “correct” when he said on Thursday that Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee had “purposely misquoted” his July 25 phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. Here’s what CNN noted: During the debate over impeachment articles, [Democrat] Rep. [Veronica] Escobar, using an analogy to stress the alleged problem in Trump’s phone call with Zelensky, said “I want you to do me a favor though.” This quote replaces the word “us” found in the memo on the call, with the word “me.” Rep. Jackson, when quoting the memo of the call, said that the quote was “I would like you to do a favor though” — removing “us” from the quote. Trump’s response: Dems Veronica Escobar and Jackson Lee purposely misquoted my call. I said I want you to do us (our Country!) a favor, not me a favor. They know that but decided to LIE in order to make a fraudulent point! Very sad. https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1205150488280350720?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1205150488280350720&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Ftrump-democrats-purposely-misquoted-me-in-impeachment-hearing-cnn-hes-correct%2F CNN’s Jim Acosta doesn’t seem so interested in being a journalist. It would be as if he’s more into himself and bashing the Trump administration and putting out tell-all books. Because you demanded it, here’s you daily dose of Jim!
