When Mitch McConnell was asked about his ancestors owning slaves, he had an incredible response. The Senate Majority Leader turned the tables on the media-driven scandal and said his family owned slaves just like Obama.
Earlier in the week there was a story ran by NBC News that stated his great-great-grandfathers owned 14 slaves.
“The two great-great-grandfathers, James McConnell and Richard Daley, owned a total of at least 14 slaves in Limestone County, Alabama — all but two of them female, according to the county ‘Slave Schedules’ in the 1850 and 1860 censuses,” NBC stated in their report.
What was the point of this story about things that happened so many years ago? To make McConnell look bad while he is denying reparations.
Well, Cocaine Mitch was ready to fire back in a big way. He called it to everyone’s attention that he isn’t the only politician with ancestors who owned slaves.
"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."

Wow, Mitch with the dagger.
One has to wonder if reparations are paid, will President Obama have to pay his fair share?
A report by The Guardian uncovered that Obama has ancestors on his mother’s side who were slave owners.
It has been established years ago that Obama opposes reparations.

“I have said in the past — and I’ll repeat again — that the best reparations we can provide are good schools in the inner city and jobs for people who are unemployed,” Obama said in a New York Daily News piece.
When backed into a corner Cocaine Mitch breaks out the Obama card. After all, if the hero of the left, Barack Hussein Obama, has ancestors who owned slaves, then how could anyone possibly ask for reparations?
