WATCH: Mitch McConnell Hilariously Trolls Obama After SCOTUS Seat Vacated

Published

on

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.

DeSantis Says Anti-Vax Cops Eligible for $5K Signing Bonus in Florida

Florida = Freedom.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is taking a stand against the proliferation of COVID-19 vaccine mandates, and staking his political career on being right about it.

DeSantis has long railed against the idea that Floridians should be forced into medical decisions that they aren’t comfortable with, or be told what level of risk they are allowed to take in regard to the waning pandemic.  This has, of course, put him at odds with a vast number of Democrats as well as some of the major corporations that do business in the Sunshine State.

But DeSantis will not be deterred, and he has now offered a lifeline to essential personnel from other locales who are being effected by what he sees as an unconstitutional set of mandates.

During an appearance on “Sunday Morning Futures” with Maria Bartiromo, DeSantis said he is now “actively working” to recruit out-of-state police officers who have been fired or placed on unpaid leave due to their city’s vaccine mandate.

“We’re actually actively working to recruit out-of-state law enforcement, because we do have needs in our police and our sheriff’s departments. So, in the next legislative session, I’m going to hopefully sign legislation that gives a $5,000 bonus to any out-of-state law enforcement that relocates in Florida,” DeSantis said.

“So, NYPD, Minneapolis, Seattle, if you’re not being treated well, we will treat you better here. You can fill important needs for us, and we will compensate you as a result,” he added.

DeSantis would go on to suggest that the vaccine mandates implored by the Biden administration are not only outside of the scope of the federal government’s power, but also incredibly detrimental to our chances at a full economic recovery from the coronavirus pandemic.
