Conservative Brief: Donald Trump is waging war against the man who believes he runs the Republican Party, House Minority Leader and Kentucky Sen. Mitch McConnell.
In an interview on Friday for Fox Business the 45th President of the United States took aim at his rival, accusing him of being clueless for helping President Joe Biden and the Democrats pass the infrastructure bill, Newsweek reported.
“It’s not infrastructure and we had 19 Republicans voting for it. What a shame. But Mitch McConnell gave this. That guy should resign as the leader,” he said.
McConnell and 18 other Senate Republicans joined Democrats in voting for the infrastructure bill in August. Then after months of tense negotiations and delay, the House passed the package largely along party lines in a 228-206 vote on November 5.
GOP House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy had warned caucus members against defecting, urging Republicans to vote against the legislation that would help Biden deliver on crucial elements of his domestic agenda.
Still, 13 House Republicans broke with their party to vote for the infrastructure plan. With six progressive lawmakers in revolt, the legislation would not have succeeded if it were not for the Republican support.
“He broke up the bills, and by breaking it up that was bad, but then he gave them two months to get their act together. They were ready to fold. We had them. And then Mitch McConnell gave them two months. This guy doesn’t have a clue,” the former president said.
But this is far from the first time he and McConnell have been at odds with each other. Earlier this month he mocked the fact that McConnell was skipping the Biden signing of the infrastructure law.
“Based on the fact that the Old Crow convinced many Republican Senators to vote for the Bill, greatly jeopardizing their chance of winning re-election, and that he led the way, he should go to the signing and put up with the scorn from Great Republican Patriots that are already lambasting him,” he said. more
Put Mitch the Bitch in the Ditch!
Oh he has a clue.
His pockets are more important than the country in his eyes.
Part of his make america great again ? Pass nothin, cause I’m not in office. Flynn & Wood havin it out too, over Q.
Well he’s right but he could have thrown in a little more of truth by pointing out Mitch and his family have huge ties to the Red Chinese.
Appointing Chao to Sec/Transportation was a sop to McConnell and they used it to further ingratiate her father’s shipping business which has major interests all over China.
I love Trump but he sure fucking made some bone head choices.
There is only one degree of separation between him and ChiCommunism!
I am having increasing doubts that anyone we are told runs the government actually has a goddamn thing at all to do with running the government. Just look at the collection of morons, perverts, and dottering old fucks in Congress and the White House… You can’t tell me those assholes are running jack shit. The laws are written by unseen lobbyists. Power is in the hands of unseen bureaucrats. And real policy is decided by a committee of psychopaths who probably aren’t even in government officially.
Obama flat out told us that ideally he wanted to have a figurehead as president and he would be in the “back” directing how things were going to be.
But while he’s got the right ideology, he’s getting marching orders as well from some one(s). These true Overlords are too fucking smart to have any kind of public persona.
The Mule is correct, anyone that thinks Maxine, Nadler or Schiff are anything more than tools ain’t paying attention.
Power is in the hands of unseen bureaucrats… and they want to stay unseen!!
IMHO the worst thing Mitch did BY FAR was get 20 “Bush bRepublicans” to confirm the WOKE AG Garland!
The Christmas masacre last week is just one of many, many negatives on Garland.
The “Bush Republicans” need to go; but mitch was the force behind their vote!
So? We’re all in agreement? The pols are spokesmodels; the people that run things are unelected. And the only solution is the people need to VOAT HARDERER!
Let’s go, Brandon!
Mitch is not clueless; he is evil. #anti-American #anti-Christ
I prefer to freebase him myself…
