The news is out: [WASHINGTON — Moments after voting to acquit Donald Trump, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell gave a speech excoriating the former president for a “disgraceful dereliction of duty” and said he holds him responsible for “provoking” the Jan. 6 siege of the Capitol.
“There’s no question, none, that President Trump is practically and morally responsible for provoking the events of the day. No question about it,” the Kentucky Republican said Saturday. “The people who stormed this building believed they were acting on the wishes and instructions of their president.”
“And having that belief was a foreseeable consequence of the growing crescendo of false statements, conspiracy theories and reckless hyperbole which the defeated president kept shouting into the largest megaphone on planet earth,” he continued.]
There are very few places in the world where one can reach this level of stupidity. Kentucky is one of them.
