Mitch McConnell Reacts to Trump's Widely Condemned Rally: 'The President's Onto Something'

Source: Mediaite


By Aidan McLaughlin Jul 18th, 2019, 8:53 am

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell appeared on Fox Business Network to praise President Donald Trump’s Wednesday night rally, in which he reveled in the crowd’s chant to “send back” a black congresswoman who came to the United States as a refugee.

Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo kicked off the interview by showing extensive clips from the rally — including one in which the crowd loudly chanted “send her back” — before asking Mitch: “You’re reaction to some of the president’s commentary?”

“He’s right about ‘the squad’ wanting to turn us into a socialist country,” McConnell said, referring to the four progressive congresswomen Trump has targeted in recent days. “What he should have added, however, is that it’s a lot broader than just the four of them.”

McConnell argued House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and the 2020 candidates have “all signed up” for policies like the Green New Deal and “Medicare for All.” (While some have, all of them have not).

8. Oh, what a relief it is!:)

Heard a few minutes ago that Rand Paul is being sent to Iran to deal with the problem. Good Lord.

Also, I want to tell posters this. Millions are trying to cancel the Prime membership that was put on them when they had the free shipping. They are trying to find out how to cancel. Do not call Amazon! Call your credit card company! Amazon offered to refund one payment. The credit card company refunded the whole thing!

6. Too many think "It can't happen here," even as it's happening before our eyes.

On a good day I give us about a 30% chance of surviving Trump/Barr/McConnell.

10. Yes he is

... but he's also going to die first, by actuarial probabilities. Chump can do way more damage than McConnell can. I'm rooting for drugs and cholesterol to do their job and take him down.

26. The Dixiecrats were far more honest and open about their bigotry.

The GOP is just making excuses to NOT say they agree with Trump.
