At a press conference following a closed-door luncheon with Senate Republicans, McConnell was asked whether he was aware that two of his great-great-grandfathers were slave owners in Alabama before the Civil War and whether the revelation would cause him to reconsider his position on reparations. "I find myself once again in the same position as President [Barack] Obama. We both oppose reparations and we both are the descendants of slave owners," he said, before moving on to another question.

He certainly knows his audience.
Trump won his state by 20 points . He's down ballot sitting pretty on the chances of being reelected . He claims he enjoys campaigns. But , that's only because of his ridiculous advantage. It's digcusting that he's openly displaying a flippant attitude about slavery . But, like to you say , he knows his base. His base is Trumps base . Reparations is a losing issue for Democrats. It's too divisive . He knows that and he's showing Trump how to frame the issue .

McTurtle needs a good smack on the old schnozzola - A bigger dick in politics we've never seen (with the possible exception of Donald Trump)
Cocaine Mitch has been doing this for a long time and he's smarter times 4 than Trump. Nope, Ol' turtle face is far more dangerous.

Nope, it shows what an asshole with a dog whistle can do to incite his 'tribe'.


How the fuck is it a dog whistle? your ilk went after him because an ancient ancestor once owned slaves. He rightly points out so did obama, why not ask him as well.



How the fuck is it racist? /facepalm
