McConnell slammed Trump as responsible for the violence soon after voting to acquit him in his Senate impeachment trial. The Kentucky Republican hid “behind technicalities” claiming the Senate had no power to convict Trump because he’s now a private citizen, noted the CNN anchor.

“It’s kind of like telling off the bully but only after you’re a few blocks away,” Cooper summarized.
