Top Republican Responds To Trump’s Threat

Sen. Rick Scott (Fla.), the chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, has said that he doesn’t condone violence. This was in response to the latest comments made by former President Trump who said that Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) has a “death wish.”

During a segment with CNN’s Dana Bash on “State of the Union,” Scott responded to Trump’s statement that not only does he not condone violence but he also hopes that no one else condones violence.

On Friday, Trump posted on his social media platform, Truth Social, to criticize those Senate Republicans that were going to be supporting legislation that included government funding. Government funding was set to run out on that same day.

Trump took to Truth Social to ask whether the reason for McConnell’s support of all of these deals was because he hated Trump and knew that Trump was very opposed to them. Regardless of the reasons for his acceptance of the deals, Trump continued to say that it is unacceptable for him to be supporting them. He continued by adding that McConnell must have a “death wish” and that he should seek help from his “China-loving wife”.

Trump’s post was in response to McConnell supporting a resolution that would fund the government through mid-December. This would help them avoid a government shutdown.

Scott denounced not only the call for violence but also the characterizations of Elaine Chao, the wife of McConnell. He also said that what Trump was trying to say is that there has been a lot of money spent over the past couple of years and they need to be careful to not cave to every Democrat’s demand and cause more debt.

  1. Yeah ,well,i SCOTT is WRONG and Trump is RIGHT

  2. yes Scott is wrong 100% go trump

  3. well, we can now identify another rino who has no place in leadership.

  4. Trump is right, but he needs to pull back on his rhetoric! That makes him sound like a Democrat!

  5. Trump is as wrong as wrong as wrong can be. Violence is not the answer for anything good.

    • Where the hell did you hear violence?? Saying someone has a death wish is not pushing for violence!! It’s a statement of fact! Where do you people get this crap?
      You’re reading into it something that is not there. McConnell’s gutless decisions are killing both the country and the party. At this point there is no difference between democrats and RINO republicans. If we all just accept McConnells crap and become like him we’re no different than the gutless, lying, whining democrats.
      And now we know that Scott another gutless wonder.
      Point of fact, for the Christians, no where does it say in the Bible “thou shalt not defend thyself.”
      The 5th Commandment is stated as “thou shalt not kill” but the real Hebrew translation is “Thou shalt not murder.”
      It was changed to “kill” to give cowards something to hide behind.

      • I agree with you 100+%. What happened that a person can’t say anything but what someone has to pick it apart. No one would have read anything into this until Scott brings it up. Shut up already.

  6. who is defending Mcconnnel? that makes them deep state garbage. perhaps they need a lesson in idiomatic expressions? or perhaps trump knows why mcconnels wife is married to him….and her connections to the ccp. mcconnell is a hard core rino that sells out to the democrats regularly and why he is in the position he is, defies logic. money talks.

    All these people are on the RIGHT track, but it has been known for a long time, that Mr. McConnell has mixed loyalties. I know that the Republican Party is going through “changes”, but I also know that the McConnell’s have a lot “invested” in China, which to me, means they are not always thinking about “OUR” interests. Mr. McConnell needs to either move on to his civilian life and stop trying to mold the Republican Party into it’s perfect RINO self. We, the people who voted in the OUTSIDER, Mr. Trump, who promised to “drain the swamp”, has run into the main problem, as I see it, the career Politicians who move to DC and never leave. These people are on both sides of the fence, and to them the American people serve them, not the other way around. Anyone who pays attention, knows that if these clowns don’t pass a “Budget” for running the government, nothing will change. So may things are on Auto Pilot, that everyone still get paid, But the democrats will scream and holler and pull their hair our, great gnashing of teeth and other wailing will go on, but just like every weekend, the government gor=es home for the weekend and comes back on Monday. How do I know? I worked for the government for 50 years and I never missed a check, Social Security checks still went out, Abortions still got performed. The big Boogie Man never showed up. McConnell needs to retire so he doesn’t get flushed away with the rest of the offal in DC. People should be going to DC to contribute to the Republic, not to manipulate things to increase their own personal wealth. Every law they pass should include them as well. And why do the elected Congressmen qualify for a Civil Service Retirement system? These people ARE NOT Civil Servants, they are temporary elected legislators, that are supposed to be here for a couple of years and go HOME to pursue their original vocation. Kind of like Davey Crockett. Another idea that will cause a lot of strife, no practicing Lawyer or Attorney should be permitted in the Congress. Those people should be restricted to the Justice department. Conflict of interest.

  8. By God, who wrote this fifth-grade gibberish — Kamalala Harris? None of it makes any sense.

    Where does the author/publisher find any “violence” or threats thereof in this kerfuffle? How does reference to a death wish — in other words, mentioning someone’s suicidal proclivities — constitute violence or threats? If I say that promoting unrestricted illegal immigration into the U.S. amounts to a death wish, how does this platform infer homicidal intent from that position?

    And what does supporting or opposing more gummint spending have to do with “calls for violence?”

    Where is this invitation to violence and murder that the headline above this post has exhumed? Is it invisible?

  9. The post by Doug pretty much says it. There is a quantom leap from Trumps comment to that idiotic transalation presented.

  11. Having a death wsih is NOT viiolence, Rick. Get your brain in gear.

  12. I think the “Death Wish” is that Sen. McConnell doesn’t really want a Republican majority in the Senate — he’s comfortable being a minority leader.

  13. Go fu ck yourself, Lil Eddie, you Liberal POS. Trump is never wrong and he didn’t threaten any violence. You LibTards are always looking to lie about something.

  14. I think Trump was referring to the death of Mitch Mcconnell’s’ political life and career. He is not a stand-up person for conservative ideals. He is only concerned about maintaining his position in the Senate and the power that can wield. Makes him no different than Schumer and Pelosi and we all know they are not for conservative values or beliefs. Good Riddance to someone that succumbed to the all corrupting drive for power.

  15. Scott is grasping at straws. I took the statement about the death wish, to mean, the end of his political career.

  16. Carolyn you are 100% correct, that is exactly what that expression means and anyone who is talking it means violence is a totally idiot
