The Saturday evening comments from the former president and potential 2024 GOP contender occurred at his Mar-a-Lago club and residence in Palm Beach, Florida at a fundraiser in front of top Republican National Committee donors.

Citing an attendee, The New York Times reported the former president calling McConnell, the top Senate Republican, a “dumb son of a b—-” and a “stone cold loser”. A “real leader,” Trump said, would never have accepted the results of that election, according to the attendee.

The Wall Street Journal also reported Trump calling McConnell the first insult, citing an attendee who heard the comments. According to the person, while the former commander-in-chief also said he was “disappointed” in former Pence, Trump didn’t project the same tension as with McConnell.

Furthermore, The Times‘ Maggie Haberman reported that the 45th U.S. president took credit for the Kentucky Republican’s margin of victory in 2020, citing an attendee.

“Did he ever say thank you to me? No. I hired his wife. Did he ever say thank you to me? No,” Trump reportedly said, referencing McConnell’s wife, Elaine Chao, who was Secretary of Transportation in his administration. The former president reportedly added that he feels “sorry” for her, saying, “She’s suffered so greatly.”

Haberman also reported in the same Twitter thread that Trump said Pence, whose life was in danger from a mob storming the U.S. Capitol on January 6, should have had “the courage” to refuse to certify the results.

McConnell voted with all Senate Republicans—except for seven—to acquit Trump in the impeachment trial over the former president allegedly inciting the Capitol riot that resulted in five deaths. However, the top Senate Republican blamed him for all that the rioters’ did that day.

“They did this because they had been fed wild falsehoods by the most powerful man on Earth—because he was angry he’d lost an election,” McConnell said in a February 13 speech. “Former President Trump’s actions preceding the riot were a disgraceful dereliction of duty.”

41-year-old Shannon Brandt is out on bond even though he was the one who admitted to killing a teenager because of the youngster’s political affiliation. Brandt chased 18-year-old Cayler Ellingson and ran him down with his car claiming he was part of a “Republican extremist group.” Police say Brandt was drunk when he hit and killed Ellingson with his SUV.

Brandt was charged Monday with vehicular homicide and leaving the scene of a deadly accident. Later in the week, he was let out on $50,000 bond stating he is not a flight risk. “I have a job, a life and a house and things I don’t want to see go by the wayside — family that are very important to me,” Brandt told the judge.

Since his release, Brandt started removing certain content from his social media, the Post Millenial observed. “Prosecutors allege moments before he was killed, 18-year-old Cayler Ellingson called his mom to come rescue him because 41-year-old Shannon Brandt was chasing him in the city of McHenry, where the street dance had just wrapped up. By the time she could get there, her son was dead” reports National Review.

“He was the one who called 911 to report the crash,” said North Dakota Highway Patrol Capt. Bryan Niewind.

Court papers show Brandt called 911 around 2:30 a.m. Sunday and told the 911 dispatcher that he just hit Ellingson, claiming the teen was part of a Republican extremist group and was calling people to come get Brandt after a political argument.
