McConnell says he and Biden aren't talking

Source: The Hill

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said on Wednesday that he's barely spoken to President Biden since the Jan. 20 inauguration, accusing the White House of shifting to the "hard left."

"I don't believe I've spoken with him since he was sworn in," McConnell said during an interview with Fox News, adding that he hadn't been invited to the White House either.

Spokespeople for McConnell didn't immediately respond to a request for comment, but clarified to CNN that while they had spoken since the Jan. 20 inauguration that they haven't talked about the agenda.

McConnell previously told reporters on Feb. 2 that he and Biden had spoken about Burma and the budget process and coronavirus relief. Democrats used a special process known as budget reconciliation to pass their sweeping $1.9 trillion bill over GOP objections. The filibuster cannot be used to slow measures moved under the budgetary rules.

4. With a good stroke of luck

McConnell may never be relevant again. But then again, he could be, and the replacement SOB will be cut from the same cloth and have more energy. But no one is able to mumble and keep their mouths shut like Moscow Mitch.

6. Obama invited Mitch to the White House and Mitch refused to shake Obama's hand.

Mitch calls himself The Grim Reaper and has repeatedly said he wants all Democratic backed initiatives to fail.

Why in the world would Biden want to invite Mitch to the White House?

Mitch was caught lying about this very issue. Either he lied when he said he hasn't spoken to Biden since Jan. 20, or he lied when he says he spoke to Biden Feb. 2.

Both of these contradicting statements cannot be true.

McConnell is a roadblock, and nothing else. Unless he can deliver some Republican votes, what he wants is irrelevant, and we need to work around him.

7. President Biden has nothing to gain from McConnell

McConnell blocks everything that he can if it's supported by Democrats and/or the American people.

What incentive is there to converse with him? What would be the point?

President Biden has serious work to do. This requires serious people. McConnell isn't serious, has lost some of his powers and has become irrelevant. Fuck him.

You go, Joe!

13. Why do the QOP always have to "clarify"? Because McConnell lied & they did speak:

clip from OP's article:

"Spokespeople for McConnell didn't immediately respond to a request for comment, but clarified to CNN that while they had spoken since the Jan. 20 inauguration that they haven't talked about the agenda.

McConnell previously told reporters on Feb. 2 that he and Biden had spoken about Burma and the budget process and coronavirus relief.

The filibuster cannot be used to slow measures moved under the budgetary rules."

and is either acting like a child or my crazy aunt by living inhis own reality and ignoring what he doesn't or doesn't like.

I wouldn't talk to a child in a permanent tantrum or my crazy aunt when she was in a snit. Total waste of time.

25. There isn't a pressing need for a lot of face time if all McTurtle is going to say is:

"I'm gong to block as many of your initiatives and nominations as I can."

To which Biden will respond, "tell me something I DON'T know."

Biden doesn't need to waste his valuable time for a conversation that could be carried out on two post cards.

41. Talking?

Talking ainít worth a shit. Itís listening where we learn new ideas.

Itís not the talking he misses, Biden is doing plenty of thatóin word and actions.

What Mitch misses is listening because nobodyís listening to him anymore. They werenít listening to him in the first place, they were listening to the Senate Majority Leader. And thatís not Mitch anymore, so the listening goes to Schumer now.
