Default Freshman Dems try to confront McConnell over shutdown—but struggle to find his office

Dumb. As. A. Box. Of. Rocks.

Rocks should be offended.

And of course Socialist Girl was one of the peeps in this hysterical mess. No surprise there. Where there's moronic retarded behavior, AOC is usually front and center leading the charge.

Freshman Dems try to confront McConnell over shutdown—but struggle to find his office

Newly-elected Democrat members of the House of Representatives had a plan to confront Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell in person to pressure him to end the government shutdown, according to The Hill.

The problem was, they didn't know where to find his office.


Here's how their journey went: They walked over to the Russell Senate Office building to deliver the letter to McConnell. But, he doesn't work from that office.

Undeterred, they set their sights on McConnell's Capitol office. When they arrived, they...delivered the letter to McConnell's deputy chief of staff, Don Stewart, who dutifully agreed to deliver the letter "as I do with every single letter that comes into this office."

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez seemed to believe McConnell was avoiding them.

"Where's Mitch is my quesion," Ocasio-Cortez said.

"He seems to be running away from us."


As a last resort to salvage the grand political gesture, the group then decided to deliver copies of the letter to the Senate Republican cloakroom and to McConnell's Russell office. Unfortunately, they didn't bring enough copies.

Not to worry, however, as Stewart allowed the Democrats to use the copy machine in McConnell's office.

The group then sat at the back of the Senate chamber, soon leaving once they realized nothing was taking place on the Senate floor at the time.

he was hiding. Mitch don't want any part of being called out for not bringing a bill to the floor that might pass. Like an "Open the government" bill.

Pelosi goes on vacation to Hawaii, multiple Dems go on a lobbyist junket to Puerto Rio, but it's the Republican that's avoiding...

a Christmas trip to see how the hurricane recovery is coming? And Pelosi did not go to Puerto Rico. And the senate went home or on vaca for Christmas.
plus there's this:

“Hawaii has airports and airlines and telephones.”

Pelosi to Trump: ‘Hawaii is part of the United States of America’

Yeah, and it required taking over 100 lobbyists with them. I'll say one thing about you Salty, you are predictable. You will say anything to defend the Dems while claiming to be independent. With your hypocrisy and out right lies, you fit right in with the Democratic party.

I love Salty. If not for her I wouldn't know what the daily talking points on MSNBC and CNN are.

Apparently Mitch McConnell's own staff didn't know where Mitch McConnell could be found. When asked they said that they didn't know.

Based upon the corruption, brutality, inhumanity, immorality, dishonesty, and incompetence of the Trump administration the White House is the dirtiest house in America and there's no known cleanser that with remove the stains of the Trump Administration.

The House passed legislation to reopen the government and to address border security. It's sitting on Mitch McConnell's desk waiting for the Senate to vote on it.

The House has done it's job and now it's up to the Senate to do it's job so...…

WHERE'S MITCH?

It's the senate's job to waste time? Senator McConnell has made it very clear that he isn't going to waste time debating and voting on legislation that has zero chance of becoming law.
Why your insistence that the Senate waste time on dead legislation instead of insisting the House work on legislation that actually has a chance?

Working, while Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is running around D.C. trying to figure out how government works. This woman is weapons grade stupid, perhaps the D's will nominate her for President.

Who asked? A.O.C.? If I was Senator McConnell my staff would have standing orders not to tell that bag of crazy where I was.
