Is McConnell finally doing his job?
In a shocking new interview, Senator Minority Leader Mitch McConnell taunted President Biden and the Democrats and suggested that they were going to learn a very hard lesson in the midterm elections. McConnell also slammed Biden for his lengthy press conference held earlier this week which has been widely criticized by many.
According to the Daily Wire, during a recent interview with Fox’s Bret Baier, McConnell was asked about Biden’s press conference, McConnell stated, “Well, if I were the president, I don’t think I would have a two-hour press conference again.”
Biden also recently claimed that Republicans including McConnell were willing to do anything to prevent him from being successful.
McConnell responded to Biden’s statement by saying, “Well, my good friend the president got it wrong once again. I helped him pass a bipartisan infrastructure bill. I supported in the Senate a bill to deal with China and the computer chip shortage. If the president starts acting like a moderate, like he campaigned, we can do business. The reason we have not been speaking recently, this year, is because he adopted the Bernie Sanders prescription for America. He did that even though he got no mandate for it, a 50/50 Senate and a couple-of-seat majority in the House. And they couldn’t get it through.”
Adding, “And the reason I couldn’t get it through, the American people are not for all of this. They thought they were electing a moderate. If the president wants to reinvent himself and come back to the middle, we have things to talk about that we can work on together.”
Then when discussing the midterms, McConnell stated, “I think the midterm election almost certainly is going to be a referendum on the party in power. This is an entirely Democratic government, Democratic president, House, and Senate. They are in charge of governing. And these midterm elections are always a report card on the performance of those who are in charge, those who are governing. I think the American people are about to send this administration a pretty big message that they do not approve of all the things that are going wrong.”
