Over the past few weeks, Mitch McConnell has repeatedly reminded America that he is the worst Republican in Washington, D.C. and possibly in this entire country. And the reason he is the worst is because he is so effective at hurting American citizens. The Senator from Kentucky has blocked any additional election security funding for the year, and he's also the gatekeeper who has allowed the extra unemployment payments to cease. Ring of Fire's Farron Cousins explains why McConnell poses the greatest threat to the country above all other Republicans.

I know it's easy to think that Donald Trump is by far just the worst possible person in the United States. Uh, and certainly the worst possible politician in the United States in terms of all the horrible things that he has done, but it is important to remember that most of what Donald Trump has done, the, the really bad, awful stuff that's going to affect us for generations. He couldn't have done any of that without the help of Mitch McConnell. I think the most glaring example is obviously the judiciary, uh, which Mitch McConnell, uh, with the help of the Federalist society, even though the Federalist society denies it, there is plenty of evidence that their fingerprints are all over it, uh, keeps feeding Donald Trump, all of these right wing judges, very young. A lot of them, uh, actually rated unqualified by the American bar association. Some of them have never even tried an actual case in court and they're federal judges now for the rest of their lives and they're younger than me.

And I'd like to think I'm still relatively young, but that's just one of the many ways in which Mitch McConnell is just the absolute worst. Last week, Mitch McConnell put forth a deal, I guess you would call it for a new round of a stimulus to help the U S economy, uh, through the pandemic. And as part of it, he is included for the Democrats, a whopping $0 million in election security funding because, Hey, that's just the kind of guy Mitch McConnell is. He wanted to make sure that he included in this package $0 million. And of course, Republican say, maybe that'll change. We'll see what happens with negotiations with Democrats. But Democrats have also made it clear that they're not taking anything off the table, good or bad, including immunity for corporations. So we already know are Democrats are coming at this from a position of, we'll give you whatever we want or you want, excuse me.

So who knows if we'll get election security funding and this entails so many things, it's not just because of the pandemic. It's not making sure that people can vote by mail McConnell doesn't want that. Cause that could mean the end of his career. A lot of Republicans think the same, Donald Trump admitted it. Not that long ago. It also includes we're not going to provide polling places with any means to make sure they're not spreading the virus to everybody that comes in there to vote. And it also means we're not going to do anything about our election cybersecurity to make sure that nobody from a foreign adversary to the hacker down the street can access our results and change them by getting into our systems. That's Mitch McConnell. That is the most recent example of why he is one of the most horrible, if not the most horrible person serving in Washington DC today.

Oh, and by the way, just a couple of days before he did that, you know what else he did? Uh, he refused to extend the increased unemployment for people who'd lost their jobs during the pandemic that was 600 bucks a week. It was helping people stay afloat. At uncertain times, these people desperately needed that.
