McConnell Hopes Trump Will 'Stick To The Script'? Really? 31.5.2016 Crooks Liars
Mitch McConnell knows that he can't usurp the will of his party's unhinged primary voters who selected Donald Trump as the GOP Presidential nominee. Once vehemently opposed to Trump, like so many other 'establishment' Republicans, McConnell has swallowed his medicine and has fallen in line.

McConnell has obviously abandoned this train of thought and has hopped on board the Trump Train to Tyranny. He's now gently encouraging Speaker Paul Ryan to join him in party unity for the sake of SCOTUS. Mitch knows how important it is to replace Scalia with another fascist misogynist. In Trump/McConnell's opinion, the list of far-right, religious ...

No. Because imaginary hippies and radicals burning flags in the dreams of just the right voters gets them to the polls? Ding we have a winner. Yes, the Supreme Court had ruled in Johnson v. Texas that duh burning a flag on your own property and not creating a public safety issue was ...
