When things started to fall apart for McConnell, it didn’t take long for him to have his version of Hrothgar’s “dreadful demon that ruled unrighteous and raged against all.” For Hrothgar, his dreadful was Grendel. For Mitch, his dreadful demon is named Donald J. Trump.
The Republican Party has been hollowed out like a Jack O'Lantern and the leering face carved into it is that of Donald J. Trump. They see themselves as above-the-law.
