WATCH: Mitch McConnell Hilariously Trolls Obama After SCOTUS Seat Vacated

Published

Whoever knew that the inaptly nicknamed “Cocaine Mitch” was such a brilliant troll?

Vindication and satisfaction are in the air for Republicans this week, as Justice Kennedy announced his retirement, leaving a vacant seat on the Supreme Court to be filled with yet another Trump appointee.

It’s stunning how quickly Democrats have changed their tune when it comes to a filibuster now that it would be incredibly expedient for them, as they are vying for a Congressional majority following the November midterms.

And Mitch McConnell, who directly warned them in 2013 they’d regret nixing the filibuster for judicial court nominees, found an incredibly hilarious way to troll them.

“McConnell,” the Daily Wire explains, “who made sure the late Justice Antonin Scalia’s seat got filled by a conservative, seemingly had a little fun of his own, trolling former President Obama by wearing a suit exactly like his. Obama had caused mild controversy when he appeared in the briefing room in 2014 wearing a tan suit.”

Naturally, conservative Twitter went nuts over the Senate Majority Leader’s hilarious stunt:

Well played, Mitch, well played.

Pelosi, Capitol Police Now Bickering Over ‘Orders’ to ‘Arrest’ the Mask-less

This is getting embarrassing for Nancy…

Thankfully, the latest COVID-19 stunt by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi only took a few hours to unravel this time around. Pelosi, who has been pushing the GOP’s buttons on mask mandates for months now, used the CDC’s recent guidance adjustment to bring the facial coverings back to the House floor.  This prompted protests from a great many Republicans, and Pelosi subsequently threatened to have the Capitol Police start arresting folks who wouldn’t comply. The Capitol Police were not exactly on board with that idea. https://twitter.com/CapitolPolice/status/1420810728387264517?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1420810728387264517%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.foxnews.com%2Fpolitics%2Fcapitol-police-ordered-arrest-staff-visitors-not-wearing-masks A response from the speaker followed. Pelosi’s office said she did not order police to begin arresting people because it’s not within her power. “The speaker of the House does not control the U.S. Capitol Police,” Pelosi spokesperson Drew Hammill told Fox News.  “We were unaware of the memo until it was reported in the press.” The embarrassing incident comes amid a flurry of criticisms of Pelosi’s handling of the Congressional mask policy, and likely marks yet another milestone in the decline of Nancy Pelosi’s speakership.

Capitol Police Ordered to Arrest Those Who Refuse Mask Mandate

Is Pelosi exploiting the Capitol Police to antagonize the GOP?

The COVID-19 pandemic has once again become a major piece of the American political landscape in 2021, as a new variant of the once-waning virus now threatens to set back herd immunity by several months or more. And while this is certainly not good news, there are still concerns that the Democratic Party is still taking this whole thing a bit too seriously, possibly in an attempt to virtue-signal their way into the hearts of young liberals everywhere. Their latest militant maneuver is being slathered in criticism, however. U.S. Capitol Police (USCP) were ordered to start arresting visitors and staff who refuse to wear a mask on the House side of the Capitol complex starting Thursday, according to a police memo issued by new USCP Chief Thomas Manger that was obtained by a member of Congress. Police were also advised not to arrest members of Congress for failing to wear masks but to report the lawmakers’ noncompliance to the House sergeant-at-arms, the memo says. It didn’t take long for a backlash to erupt. Rep. Kat Cammack, R-Fla., got a copy of the memo distributed at Thursday’s morning roll call from an unnamed police officer, she told Fox News. Police she’s spoken to are “very uncomfortable” with this new directive that Cammack describes as “tyrannical.” “This is such an overstep of Speaker Pelosi’s authority to basically make our Capitol Police arrest staff members and report on members [of Congress],” Cammack told Fox News Thursday. “It’s absolutely unconscionable that this is where we’re at.” The move comes just a day after House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s comments on possible mask requirements prompted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to call him a “moron”.
