Reliably Republican blog-like thingie The Hill clutches their pearls: Pelosi refers to McConnell as ‘Moscow Mitch’
“Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Wednesday called Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) “Moscow Mitch” while attacking him for blocking House Democrats’ legislation, including election security measures…
“We all want to invest in building our democracy and saving it from any enemies, foreign and domestic,” Pelosi said in remarks before the Illinois Democratic County Chairs’ Association in Springfield, Ill., as she discussed House Democrats’ overall agenda.
“We’ve sent our legislation to the Senate. Moscow Mitch says that he is the Grim Reaper. Imagine describing yourself as the Grim Reaper, that he’s going to bury all this legislation,” Pelosi said. “Well, we have news for him. All this legislation is alive and well in the general public.”
As you recall, amply be-chinned Mitch McConnellvitch, has accused people smearing him as modern day McCarthyism, which is funny when you consider that McCarthy smeared innocent people for political gain, and Moscow Mitch is being smeared for being at best a useful idiot to the Kremlin.
