Here is the one hundred second article in our Republicans on Parade series, featuring individuals who personify what the Republican Party has become. Today’s honoree is Republican Senate Majority Leader Bought Bitch Mitch McConnell. He is so honored for willingness to protect his Fuhrer and his Reich from the criminal justice they deserve by refusing to move ahead with legislation to protect the Mueller Investigation.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) shrugged off concerns that Congress should safeguard against a constitutional crisis by passing legislation to protect special counsel Robert Mueller from being fired by the White House he is tasked with investigating.
Sen. McConnell was asked about multiple bills that would protect the special counsel from interference from President Donald Trump during an interview with MSNBC anchor Hugh Hewitt that was broadcast Saturday.
“This is also a week of indictments,” Hewitt noted. “There are two views about Mr. Mueller. Some want legislation to restrain his power and limit his reach. Others want legislation to keep him safe from being fired.”
“Do you think Congress has any role in legislating about the special counsel right now?” Hewitt asked.
“I don’t think so,” McConnell answered.
Multiple Republican leaders have urged President Trump to fire the special counsel. Ousted Trump strategist Steve Bannon has urged a scorched earth approach to the investigation and Pat Robertson demanded Trump fire Mueller and pardon everyone to “shut down” the investigation.
As the chorus of far-right voices against the special counsel grows, the appetite for congressional action to protect Mueller has waned.

Here’s the video. I recommend turning the liar off after the significant section.

This is McConnell’s second parade. His first was in September 2013. I trust you’ll agree that Bought Bitch Mitch deserves a new Parade virtually every day.
