Mitch McConnell Caught In A Massive Lie About Never Turning Down A Meeting With Obama

Senate Majority Leader Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said that he never turned down a meeting with former President Obama, but McConnell was lying.

Video of McConnell:

McConnell said, “I never refused to go to a meeting that President Obama called. A bipartisan meeting. It never occurred to me that I could just say to President Obama, I’m not showing up. That strikes me as a lack of seriousness about the matter before us.”

The Senate Majority Leader was lying.

Mitch McConnell and Republicans refused to go to a bipartisan dinner with President Obama in 2011.

The Huffington Post reported at the time:

“Obama spokesmen have generally avoided portraying the move as a deliberate brush-off by Republicans.An official statement from the White House ascribed the dinner’s move to Nov. 30 to “scheduling conflicts,” and White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs told reporters in an off-camera briefing on Thursday, “Sen. McConnell does not make it a regular practice of showing us his daily schedule. … Again, we are looking forward to sitting down with leaders on both sides on November 30.”

What the Democrats did wasn’t act of disrespect to Trump. It was a message that if the government shuts down, the consequences will fall on Trump and the Republican majority in Congress. Blaming Democrats is not going to get them out of the mess that they are creating.

Trump and the GOP are drowning, and Democrats aren’t about to throw them a life preserver.
