McConnell is king of the RINOs. He’s making it clear whose side he’s on.
And now Mitch McConnell just shot this warning to Donald Trump he never saw coming.
Ever since Donald Trump won the presidency in 2016, there has been a vocal minority in the Republican Party have been actively undermining him.
Whether it was the turncoats who founded the Lincoln Project or Republican Congressmen who voted to impeach Trump, they want nothing more than to see him fail.
And of course, their ringleader has been Mitch McConnell.
Though McConnell has looked ambivalent to Trump in the past, he’s showing his true colors more and more.
On Tuesday, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell took a shot at former President Donald Trump, claiming he would be unlikely to “ever be elected” again.
Trump has come under fire after white nationalist Nick Fuentes and Kanye West, officially known as ‘Ye,’ attended a meal at Mar-a-Lago with the 45th president.
Trump has denied knowing Fuentes would be coming and claims he had no idea who Fuentes was.
“So I help a seriously troubled man, who just happens to be black, Ye (Kanye West), who has been decimated in his business and virtually everything else, and who has always been good to me, by allowing his request for a meeting at Mar-a-Lago, alone, so that I can give him very much needed ‘advice,'” Trump posted on his Truth Social account.
“He shows up with 3 people, two of which I didn’t know, the other a political person who I haven’t seen in years. I told him don’t run for office, a total waste of time, can’t win. Fake News went CRAZY!,” the former President continued.
“Ye, formerly known as Kanye West, was asking me for advice concerning some of his difficulties, in particular having to do with his business. We also discussed, to a lesser extent, politics, where I told him he should definitely not run for President, ‘any voters you may have should vote for TRUMP,'” Trump followed up in another post.
“Anyway, we got along great, he expressed no anti-Semitism, & I appreciated all of the nice things he said about me on ‘Tucker Carlson.’ Why wouldn’t I agree to meet? Also, I didn’t know Nick Fuentes,” Trump concluded.
Despite Trump’s denial of knowing Fuentes, that didn’t stop Mitch McConnell from lobbing hefty accusations against him.
“There is no room in the Republican Party for anti-Semitism or white supremacy. And anyone meeting with people advocating that point of view, in my judgment, are highly unlikely to ever be elected president of the United States,” McConnell said.
Several other prominent Republicans, including former Vice President Mike Pence, have spoken out about the meal, saying Trump “was wrong to give a white nationalist, an antisemite, and a Holocaust denier a seat at the table.”
Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie tweeted Saturday, “this is just awful, unacceptable conduct from anyone, but most particularly from a former President and current candidate.”
Arkansas Republican Gov. Asa Hutchinson said Sunday on CNN that he hopes “we won’t have to be responding to what former President Donald Trump has said or done.”
Rather than take Trump at his word that he may not have known a person brought by a celebrity guest to dinner, RINOs have let loose on him, accepting the media-driven narrative that Trump is a bigot and white supremacist.
Liberals are surely lapping this up.
