Whose side is McConnell on?
In a move that has shocked the entire Republican Party, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell will now host President Biden in Kentucky for what he is referring to as a “bipartisan celebration” for the passing Biden’s 2021 $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill.
This comes as shock since McConnell just helped President Biden and the Democrats pass the $1.7 trillion omnibus funding bill even though Republicans were against it.
According to the Washington Examiner, a statement from the White House explained, “The President will deliver remarks on how his economic plan is rebuilding our infrastructure, creating good-paying jobs that don’t require a four-year degree, and revitalizing communities left behind.”
McConnell is essentially throwing a party for President Biden who has gotten everything he wants out of McConnell. Former President Donald Trump has blasted McConnell a number of times now and has even referred to him as a “disaster.”
Trump even went as far as saying that McConnell is “more of a Democrat than a Republican” at this point and a majority of Republicans fully agree.
Watch McConnell praise the outrageously Democrats:
