McConnell’s Trump Endorsement Labeled ‘Sad’ by Pelosi

Pelosi refers to McConnell’s Trump endorsement as a “sad” conclusion to his career

During her appearance on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Friday, former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, a Democrat from California, delved into the recent endorsement of Donald Trump by Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, a Republican from Kentucky. Pelosi expressed her disappointment, describing McConnell’s decision as a “sad” conclusion to his career.

Pelosi didn’t mince words, stating her belief that McConnell was fully aware of Trump’s involvement in the January 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol. She questioned how McConnell could justify endorsing someone she views as complicit in such a serious event.

Reflecting on the expectations that McConnell might have held Trump accountable, Pelosi remarked, “For him to know how bad the president’s predecessor was on all of this, and then come to the conclusion that he would endorse him when we thought he was going to convict him . . . It’s really very, very sad.”

Acknowledging their frequent disagreements, Pelosi described McConnell’s career as strategic, which prompted her to raise doubts about how this endorsement aligns with his established “strategy.”

“In my view, it’s really a sad, professional tragedy that he had to come around,” Pelosi commented. “Why would he do such a thing? Perhaps he’ll explain it to the world.”
