Don’t you just love when a career politician speaks for everyone on a topic that you know people are divided on? It’s as if those politicians believe that they speak for the people instead of serving them — and unfortunately, for the politician’s sake we’re about to talk about, that’s true.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) spoke on Monday as if it were a foregone conclusion that former President Donald Trump is solely responsible for the events of January 6, 2021. McConnell made his comment in a prepared statement following the “House Jan. 6 select committee’s decision to refer criminal charges against former President Trump to the Justice Department,” according to The Hill.

“The entire nation knows who is responsible for that day," McConnell said. "Beyond that, I don’t have any immediate observations."

I’m sorry. Do we?

You don’t have to be a big Trump fan, only objective, to know that Trump’s only responsibility in the events of January 6th was his rally and his call to supporters to “peacefully and patriotically make [their] voices heard.”

Trump cannot be held responsible for the actions of a few, along with some nefarious folks who we’re not sure on whose behalf they were acting.

McConnell says whatever he feels he needs to in order to stay in the position he’s grown accustomed to, but shouldn’t think for a minute that he speaks for anyone other than his own constituents.
