With Its Lapdog Cover, The New York Daily News Mocks McConnell's Devotion To Trump.


On Thursday's cover of the New York Daily News, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) is dubbed "TRUMP'S LITTLE MITCH."

The newspaper portrayed McConnell as a dog on Donald Trump's lap in response to the senator's opposition to a commission to investigate the deadly U.S. Capitol riot instigated by the former president.

The House voted on Wednesday to establish a commission to investigate the violence, but Senate Republicans, led by McConnell, are opposed to it.

The subheadline read, "Lapdog pol shields Don from riot probe":

This isn't the first time the New York tabloid has portrayed McConnell as an animal on its front page.

Following his refusal to allow witnesses to testify in Trump's Senate impeachment trial over the Ukraine scandal in January 2020, it turned the then-Senate majority leader into a chicken.
