McConnell is under fire for the Republican plan to take health care away from tens of millions of Americans. He is also facing a ton of heat from constituents who are demanding an investigation into Donald Trump’s relationship with Russia.
A true leader doesn’t sneak in through the back door. Real leaders don’t hide when they are faced with protesters. Sen. McConnell is in hiding because he knows that the Trump/GOP agenda is very unpopular. He can’t defend it, so he is running away from those who want to confront him.
Republicans can’t run away from the rage of the American people. There will be no back door to hide from the ballot box in 2018.
