McConnell, majority leader of the silence of the GOP: Our view - USA Today

http://www.usatoday.com/story/opinion/2016/11/01/mitch-mcconnell-trump-paul-ryan-republican-party-editorials-debates/93063548/


Prominent Republicans have found distinctly different ways to deal with their un-presidential presidential candidate.

After tepidly endorsing Trump in May and popping up occasionally since then to criticize some of Trump's basest actions, the cynical majority leader has all but disappeared from the presidential debate in recent weeks and gotten away with it.

Not exactly a profile in courage during the final stages of an election where a candidate who manifestly lacks presidential temperament, knowledge and integrity leads the Republican ticket.

~~
~~

McConnell, who has a special responsibility to live up to his leadership title, is the mostly silent enabler who helped create a toxic political environment where Trumpism could thrive.
