It is so refreshing to finally see citizens waking up and realizing they have been had. No only are they denouncing Moscow Mitch but also Comrade Trump. When Trump can no longer find a place in the US to live Moscow will welcome him with open arms.

Mitch is almost worse than Trump. The bad thing is even if Trump loses, Mitch will still be there obstructing things.

In some ways worse than Trump, because unlike DT, Mitch is smart, crafty, patient, and determined - he knows exactly what he's doing.

Yes, but even gridlock would be better than 4 more years of Trump. And that might persuade moderates and centrists to vote for someone like Warren knowing that obstructionist Mitch would block a far left agenda. Mitch could end up hurting Trump.

The man is completely partisan and totally tactical. He can sense any discord within his party and put a stop to it faster than anyone I've seen in decades. Politics is entirely moment to moment for him, and he's been in Congress so long he knows where every single member's weaknesses lie, and will use them instantly if they try to oppose him in any way.
