Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid took apart Majority Leader Mitch McConnell by using Trump as a weapon of mass Republican destruction.
Reid said, “Let’s talk about Trump and women. When they get together, they can talk about their policies about being anti-woman. Since Sen. McConnell has so enthusiastically embraced Trump, we can only assume he agrees with Trump’s view that women are dogs and pigs. We can only assume that the Republican Leader is not repulsed by Donald Trump’s vulgar behavior towards women. Look at his New York Times story yesterday on his cavorting with Howard Stern and how they talked about women. After all, the Republican Party has spent years blocking every substantive bill for American women. Equal pay for equal work. The Senator has tried to undermine women’s health at every turn. Trying to turn Planned Parenthood into a punching bag, even though millions and millions of women have been helped by Planned Parenthood.”
Sen. Reid went on to say that it can be assumed that McConnell agrees with Trump that Mexicans are drug dealers and rapists, and added, “Let’s not forget that Republicans have been demagoguing against immigrants for decades.”
Republicans are married to Donald Trump, and Democrats plan on reminding every voter in the country that Trump’s positions are those of the Republican Party. Trump didn’t materialize out of thin air. The positions that he is running for president on have been those of the Republican Party for decades.
The only difference between Trump and Mitt Romney or John McCain is that the previous Republican nominees were better at hiding the party’s extremism. Trump doesn’t hide the extremism. It fuels him.
Mitch McConnell has done his best to support Trump from a distance, but with Donald in DC, those days are over.
Harry Reid is Reid is retiring, but it is clear that he plans on taking Mitch McConnell’s Senate majority with him as he walks out the door.
