Mitch McConnell went nuclear on the Democrats and Mainstream Press after a report came out claiming he had slave ancestors.
“You know, I found myself once again in the same position as President Obama. We both oppose reparations. And we both are the descendants of slave holders.”

Here is the report:
Details about McConnell’s ancestors, discovered by @NBCNews through a search of ancestry and census records, came in the wake of recent hearings on reparations before the House Judiciary Subcmte. on the Constitution, Civil Rights and Civil Liberties. https://t.co/qmTMqAlAFZ

This is a perfect example of how despicable the Mainstream Press is. Why are they attacking McConnell for a “conflict of interest” while not doing the same for Democrats?
Last week we reported that Kamala Harris has ties to ancestors who owned slaves.
CONFIRMED: Kamala Harris’ ancestors owned slaves
NBC is yet to cover this story.
NBC has covered McConnell’s response and they buried in the last paragraph that Obama’s ancestors owned slaves.
During the 2008 election, an amateur genealogist found that on his white mother’s side, Obama had a great-great-great-grandfather named George Washington Overall who owned two male slaves in Kentucky. The genealogist, William Reitwiesner, also found that Obama’s great-great-great-great-great-grandmother, Mary Duvall, also owned a pair of slaves.
It must tough for the Mainstream Press to be forced to admit this so thank you, Mitch, for making them do it.
