Roy Moore’s loss was a huge blow to conservatives.
The establishment, along with their friends in the fake media, won.
And Mitch McConnell is celebrating Moore’s loss for an infuriating reason.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell was perhaps the most vocal Republican opponent of Roy Moore during his Alabama Senate campaign.
When the fake news sexual accusations against Moore came out, McConnell jumped ship so fast, one has to ask if McConnell was ever even on Roy Moore’s side?
Well, now that the election is over and Roy Moore has indeed lost, McConnell’s true colors are coming out.
McConnell’s former campaign manager, Josh Holmes, came out in full attack-mode on conservatives, specifically Steve Bannon.
Before we get the results, I'd just like to thank Steve Bannon for showing us how to lose the reddest state in the union and Governor Ivey for the opportunity to make this national embarrassment a reality

As reported by The Hill:
“A former campaign manager for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) weighed in shortly after polls closed Tuesday in Alabama to thank Stephen Bannon “for showing us how to lose the reddest state in the union.”
Former McConnell aide Josh Holmes called the Senate special election a “national embarrassment” as embattled GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore went against Democrat Doug Jones in what had become a competitive race in a deeply red state.
Bannon, President Trump’s former White House chief strategist, campaigned for Moore going back to his primary runoff against Sen. Luther Strange (R-Ala.).
Bannon, the executive of the right-wing Breitbart News, appeared with Moore on the campaign trail twice in the final week leading up to election day Tuesday, taking time at each one to specifically rail against McConnell and other Washington Republicans.
McConnell previously called on Moore to withdraw from the race in the face of mounting allegations against Moore from women saying he pursued them when they were teenagers and he was in his 30s. He also said Moore would likely face a Senate Ethics Committee probe if elected.”
This is not very surprising considering that Mitch McConnell was so strongly opposed to Moore that he promoted a write-in campaign which he himself admitted would mean a win for the Democrat.
Just weeks before the election, a close campaign aide let it slip that the write-in campaign wasn’t viable and that McConnell was fully aware of it.
Nevertheless, the vitriolic hatred towards Moore did result in him losing financial support from the Republican National Committee.
So Moore was left with grassroots conservatives like Steve Bannon on his side, and Mitch McConnell’s former campaign manager feels the need to attack the conservative base McConnell so desperately needs to support him?
Do you think that McConnell should be ousted as Majority Leader?
