image for Pelosi refers to McConnell as 'Moscow Mitch'

Pelosi invoked the "Moscow Mitch" moniker while referring to McConnell's embrace of his portrayal as the "Grim Reaper" blocking House Democrats' progressive policies from moving forward in the Senate.

Imagine describing yourself as the Grim Reaper, that he’s going to bury all this legislation," Pelosi said.

“I was called unpatriotic, un-American and essentially treasonous by a couple of left-wing pundits on the basis of bold-faced lies.

McConnell accused critics in the media, specifically The Washington Post and MSNBC, of engaging in "unhinged smears," calling it "modern-day McCarthyism.”.

The bills blocked by McConnell would require the use of paper ballots and direct candidates or campaigns to notify the FBI about offers of assistance from foreign governments.

And now public sentiment must weigh in to save lives, to pass our bill and to look at high-capacity magazines that should be eliminated as well," Pelosi said.

There has to be a bipartisan discussion here of what we can agree on," McConnell said during an interview with Kentucky radio station WHAS last week. »
