Well, it’s on.

Donald Trump ended his post-presidency silence not with a blast at President Joe Biden, or at the left, or at the House impeachment managers, but at the true enemy—Mitch McConnell.

The Trump forces aren’t forming a third party, but they do want to take over—or more accurately—maintain their current grip on the GOP, and McConnell is an obstacle.

The Senate minority leader declared his independence from Trump in his lacerating speech at the end of the Senate impeachment trial, perhaps the most damning vote of acquittal in a couple of centuries of Anglo-American impeachment proceedings.
