Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell had the nerve to brag about obstructing President Obama’s Supreme Court nominee during his speech at the Republican convention.
We put Obamacare repeal on the President’s desk. He vetoed it. Donald Trump would sign it.
We passed a bill to finally build the Keystone pipeline. Obama vetoed it. Donald Trump would sign it.
We passed a bill to defund Planned Parenthood. Obama vetoed it. Donald Trump would sign it.
And on that sad day when we lost Justice Scalia, I made another pledge that Obama would not fill his seat.
That honor will go to Donald Trump next year.
McConnell was making the argument that his failed tenure as Senate Majority Leader has all been President Obama’s fault. McConnell also finally admitted that the reason why he is obstructing President Obama’s Supreme Court nominee is that he wants Donald Trump to fill the seat.
Mitch McConnell will likely no longer be the Senate Majority Leader in 2017 and his bragging about ignoring the Constitution and not doing his job will be one of the main reasons why.
Sen. McConnell is the least popular Senator in the country because he has not done his job. McConnell is proud of the reason why the voters hate him, and he has given voters every reason in the world to hand control of the Senate back to the Democrats.
