“Well there’s a lot to happen between now and '24,” McConnell said in an interview with Fox News. “I’ve got at least four members that I think are planning to run for president plus some governors and others; There’s no incumbent, a wide-open race and should be fun for you all to cover.”

When asked if he wouldsupport Trump, who has hinted at a second run, became the Republican nominee, he said, “Absolutely.” GOP Sens. Josh Hawley of Missouri and Tom Cotton of Arkansas as well as former U.N ambassador Nikki Haley have also been mentioned as potential candidates.

Is he drunk? Forked tongues This is the main reason (amongst hundreds) why Mitch McConnell must be removed from office ASAP! Unbelievable! U crazy old man. BradleyEulalia Ugh... The Republicans are at a crossroads. They have to decide if they are going to be the Obstructionist Party of Mitch McConnellor the Insurrectionist Party of Donald J Trump.

He has lost his mind. You can tell from the picture they really love each other. What has trump on MoscowMitch Bipolar Bastard! Coward Mitch cannot be trusted. He will support Trump. That speech he gave was just for show. Never meant a word of it LeaderMcConnell because he has no backbone. Just like the majority of the Republican party

He's unbelievable Who gives a sheet! What he says He has no spine. He has lost it He has no moral standard. Whatever makes the most money for McConnell is what he supports Because he knows he’s safe saying that because it’s a VERY big IF. If he couldn’t win while he was incumbent why would they take a chance on giving him the nomination again?

Everyone is allowed one friend You are on your way out next time around He's gotta get checked for dementia Confused Mitch. What a suck up!! Term limits Mitch!! Disgusting. Just amazing how quickly subjective amnesia works. McConnell must’ve pulled that burr outta his ass. Hail to dictator Trump, your army is,,,,,,, well not happening

Ha ha! Tell everyone you think he was responsible for the Capital mess Jan 6th, then say you would support him to run in 2024. What the hell is wrong with this guy? I really believe he has mental problems. Too Love birds holding one another how sweet wonder who pitching and who receiving are do they go both ways hahaha

Absolutely nuts. Unless the GOP gets leaders who put country over party, The party, and maybe even America, is on the brink. Ugh!!!!!! 🤮 When will any of the GOP grow a spine? Disgusting disgraceful and treasonous to support someone you admitted was responsible for the insurrection on January 6th and should be held accountable in court for. resignmcconnell insurrection Treason

agomez619 No integrity. All agenda. That man has no scruples. He changes from one day to the next. How can anyone trust his judgement, ever again! Disgrace Do you see Ted Cruz up there? Keep probing ! LeaderMcConnell is just another GOP putting PartyOverCountry. GOPComplicitTraitors Disgusting No story here, our course he must, no matter who becomes party leader silly question really.

Well, we all know that McConnell changes his views as often as he changes his underwear dont we? Not my kind of politician. Nothing honest or honorable about Mitch McConnell. He flips more than a pancake on a hot griddle Wait, I heard him say......... What is with these whackos? Because this worked out so well for them in 2020...

I hope both of them are dead by then Disheartening I don’t want to hear the t r u m p name mentioned ever again 🤦🏻‍♀️ I have PTSD from the last 4 years. can’t deal with it. Senility setting in I'm glad he stepped in when he did to the LEST he could do to curb Trump's hostile take over and attempt to overrule a fair election. That said he either had no moral compass or no spin to stand against Trumplicans.

Someone has been reminded by trump mafia what they have on him They are both senile and need to be gone from public office. 🤦‍♀️FFS Not surprising. Moscow Mitch has no honor. shameless turd. isnt Mitch like 100🤔 someone direct him to a nursing home...hes lost😐 What a lovely couple. Asshole He really needs to be checked for Alzheimers!

Both mentally unfit to serve anyone or anyplace. Just my opinion. Maybe Mitch has Alzheimer’s Under his breath, “ but I won’t have to because he will be in jail 😂😂” Maggots SMH If you have never understood the power of organized crime families- you should now. The GOP, where down is up and up is down. PS These faces on my feed so early in the morning 🤮

McConnell is crazy.Clean the Republican Party, and vote him out! Such integrity If society allows, the unscrupulous will monetize hate, and the weak-minded will love them for it. That man!! OMG Dysfunction Hipocresy at its best PMURT's idea of love. Trump and McConnell now dance together and will probably be sending love letters. Of course THEY ARE BOTH CHINA lovers ... MCCONNELLS daddy in law is a shipping magnate...most likely ships tons from Kentucky to CHINA AND RUSSIA!

A man that would support someone who he, himself, has confirmed incited a deadly riot is not fit for any kind of Leadership position. Not really surprised that Tweedy's favorite lackey Moscow Mitch would say something as incredulous is this ! McConnell is a very weak leader & politician ! Damn, Mitch, WTH does Trump have on you?

No need to play nice. Trump would be 79 and most likely physically unfit to go thru primaries. Trump at present more worried to save his shrinking Trump Organization and fending off likely prosecution for tax evasion shenanigans. PRETTY BOY PUTINS PUPPETS.!! Seriously the look of solidarity on those two fucking white faces is enough to drive the entire Democratic Party to drink too much this weekend thanks for that NBC thanks.

A bizarre form of spinelessness wtf ? Talking out of both sides of his mouth. McConnell just rides those coattails, and can't think for himself. poor thing These people are the worst hypocrites! Oh hey you tried to kill us but sure welcome back! Republicans have NO principles anymore!! These people are 100% certifiably insane.

Once again, Canadians are collectively wide-eyed and shaking their heads. The void in principles and character that you tolerate in your US leaders and heroes is truly mind-boggling. Is McConnell paying with Trump? They are both so healthy 🙄 , does anyone expect them to be alive by 2024 Playing the game although he knows Trump is in big legal trouble and likely will not be able to run 2024. So much sleaze in the GOP

What kind of shithole country would let a criminal, conman, insurrectionist inciting, two-time impeached, Putin money funneled, Russian asset run for President again? Don got him by the balls? This dude is spineless... he should go back to Kentucky and retire. Of course he would. He is one of the worst humans on earth.

Mitch ‘Party before Country’ McConnell Happy Purim Senator! With Trump they lost once and they will lose again no problem...... Good grief. Yes, a Peanuts reference. He’s not really a turtle, he’s more like a leech. What is wrong with Mitch no chin Emperor Palpatine McConnell ? 🙄🤦🏻👎😡🤬🤢🤮🤫 Senile thought

Mitch is scared of treason charges. Judgement day is coming soon. The GOP is fucked. I’d like to think 2024 will be a world without Mitch McConnell First, Trump has to be alive by 2024; Second, another 500,000 Americans get ready to die. POTUS robreiner TheDailyShow He needs to retire his statements sound like he’s senile.

What does Trump have on this dude What Mitch says is not important. I only listen to the MyPillow guy. Pure evil right there folks What a hostage would say. Without hesitation Why would ANYONE support a delusional tyrant who incited an insurrection, lost the popular vote for President twice and lost the Senate? WHY?

MERICA It may be difficult for Trump to campaign from Rikers Island. Impossible if he's a convicted felon confirming that 'impeachment' is really just a useless partisan game now. Since an entire party can just choose not to do it ethically. What a joke. Does he really or is he still scared of the potential backlash from the trump supports kicking him out of office?

I blame Lincoln....should’ve let Kentucky secede. D-Bag of the CENTURY! Republicans Being Wimps to Donald Trump ego has become the norm in Washington DC so sad Morally bankrupt like the party. 哈哈哈 Who stands for nothing, will fall for anything. They have no respect for anything or anyone. But...Sleep with the devil, the devil will sweep you away... Good luck Republicans.

Doubt he’ll live till then Really dumb...... millions out of work, and Biden and democrats open visas again for low wage labors for the tech monopolies. they dont care about you, they dont care that blacks and women are out of work! 2024: Godfather IV. What. A. Turd. 💩 Amazing LFG trump 2024 Those of us that speak the truth about IMPOTUS 2 x are not under an active blackmail threat. GOP Corrupt POS.

Me too McConnell must be afraid of the Trump mafia. So he admits he would 'absolutely' support a professed Criminal and Traitor...Way to go, party of 'law & order!' GQPTraitorsToDemocracy 💀👹💸 Who would support you McConnell? 😂 Moscow Mitch knows mango will be indited so nothing to worry about. Bitch ass mother fucker

Such immoral people. Disgusting. Really! That'll be great. Anybody not named Clinton will beat him, again Come on Mitch. You showed tremendous leadership putting Country over Party before this. Now that you’ve turned, Trump will wear down the remaining Republicans with a conscience with his continuing lies.

🤦‍♂️ This is just tragic. No matter whether you are R or D. Unbelievable holy cow --- WASF I think dementia is the only explanation for his behaviour, no one with a full deck would behave like this man. He’s the worst, hope they are both in jail by then WTAF? What the fuck? This dude is talking from both side of his mouth.

It's quite rediculous Trump is still walking this rock. He must be paying death under the table as well. The Party of no soul LeaderMcConnell GOP is this a joke? you people have lost your damn minds 🤦🏾‍♀️ Nooooooo how can the GOP not find ANYONE better?!?! Joe has destroyed thousands of jobs with in days of office, soooo yeah

🤦‍♂️ Won't be harsh by saying this old geezer is confused. No conviction. Action was criminal. Support 2024. He is senile no doubt about that Sad Puppy McCock MAKE UP YOUR MIND MITCH WTF Can Biden quit trying to work with republicans now? That’s the reason he didn’t vote to convict Trump despite knowing he was guilty

In 2024 the number of Indian Americans would be sufficient to vote Trump to power. One word from Modiji in India will mobilize the entire Indian population, which by 2024 will be more than the local American population through Biden's open immig policie Agli baar Trump Sarkaar. A “man” with no honor Cu*k

Keeping your mouth shut would serve you well! CheriJacobus Weak pos McConnell would support the anti-Christ if the Republicans nominated him. Oh wait! They did.

Is this McConnell's idea of ignoring Trump? 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂 Unbelieva...Wait...COMPLETELY believable. I Think Mitch Has Lost His Mind!! Sounds Like He Has Dementia!!🤬 WillieGeist Willie-when will you cover Cuomo ? Remember metoo . ddomsitz WTF is wrong with this bunch, He's the worst human in the world. What a cult.

That photo is pathetic. TermLimitsNow Mamon is their God so whatever music Trump plays they will dance. It’s almost like McConnell’s only value is power... 🤔 WillieGeist It’s classic GOP hypocrisy. It’s the same thing they said about ramming through Amy Coney Barrett in 2020 despite when Senate Republicans refused to give Judge Garland a hearing and bringing his nomination up to the Senate floor for a vote.

These republicans are trump lovers What a hypocrite! Yet many Trump fans think Biden is mentally deficient. How can people forget Jan. 6 so soon? It was horrible. ASS Kisser Martina The coward knows where his bread is buttered. He can’t let go of the teat McConnell part of the problem. Republicans are the problem.!

Another puppet A political acrobat or a political chameleon? Which description of Mitch fits him accurately? As the knife goes into McConnells back. F WOW!🤔🤬🏛🤷‍♀️ No schit Sherlock WillieGeist Pathetic man Martina Is he also suffering from dementia termlimits Republicans have zero standards of decency or what's right or wrong.

WillieGeist Spineless blob. WillieGeist What is wrong with these idiots? Martina Same party that called John Kerry flip flopper... Does McConnell have Schizophrenia McConnellIsACoward WillieGeist LeaderMcConnell MoscowMitch must have whiplash by now. The Republikkan Party - the party of seditionists, traitors, and racists. ProTip Mitch, going to be a little hard for Dementia Donnie to campaign from prison once he's indicted for tax fraud.

After what Trump said about him? Can't believe Mitch and Ted Cruz are actually scared of that fat slob. The whole gop is a damn joke WillieGeist what a surprise That’s Mitch. Hope Kentuckians are proud! Trump Strong! He needs to go!! Can't make up his mind!! Trump must have dirt on him too!! Dirt likes Dirt!!

Funny but not so funny CheriJacobus Huh? Fearful toad with a small mind. mcconnell bought again by putin Seriously? LeaderMcConnell a true politician until the end and one that really does not care for Americans After his condemnation of The Former Guy immediately after voting to acquit just weeks ago, this is absolutely beyond apprehensible.

Two faced turtle.... Trump all but spit McConnell out after he chewed him up last week. And here goes McConnell now, like Lyin’ Ted and Little Marco, grovelling back to Trump. No dignity, zero integrity. Nauseating. If these men had the balls of RepLizCheney, GOP may actually stand for something. 🤢 McConnell has proven Trump correct in labelling him as a common political hack.

So, dementia? MilitaryTimes FoxNews LEAVE the republican party-Do It Now-They spew Hate/Division/Lies/Racism-That is Not YOU-This is not the party your parents brought U up to believe in-Now they are inviting Liars & Cheats to be the HEAD of the party-Racists too-Go DEMS 4 GOD & a Better Way Don’t talk about ethics with Mitch. All he cares is winning. Winners make policy and losers go home.

A wise man can play the part of a clown, but a clown can't play the part of a wise man. — Malcolm X CheriJacobus Oh gee. So that little spat was nothing but drama eh LeaderMcConnell 🙄 SO Fake. Flip-flop. Flip-flop. What a hypocrite. Not like I ever expected any good from the guy but 🤦🏻‍♀️ don't think LeaderMcConnell knows his ass from a hot rock - one day he supports the POS the next doesn't want anything to do with him ... GOP needs to figure some sh*t out

A man who gives politicians a dirty name 🤮 Are either of them gonna make it to 2024?! 😂 let’s hope not This is not a surprise. McConnell supported Trump through treason and sedition. He would support him again if he couped our country and became a dictator. That says all you need to know about McConnell.

Who in their right mind is ready to support this train wreck again? Please, be done with this nightmare! CheriJacobus Well I’m shocked ... check my notes , Nope not in the lease surprised GOOD! We will keep the House, the Senate and the WH. Geez, we all Mitch's movie ended. McConnell - 🎵 your hot and your cold, your yes and your no 🎶

He knows Trump will never be the nominee. Mitch just wants the party to unite so he can win back the Senate. Oh Mitch, you're the sly one! Ah, the thrill of bribery and the agony of kompromat! You freaking have to be kidding me. So McConnell flip-flops again. I got news for McConnell there's almost a hundred million people in the United States that will never have Trump be president again. I don't know what's wrong with this man but he's outdone his sell-by date

CheriJacobus disgusting I would say that gives me until 2024 to flee the country n renounce my citizenship but then again, there’s nowhere in this world you can escape the nuclear reach of the USA. We are all doomed.
