Donald Trump has been doing everything in his power to regain Congress for Republicans.
But RINOs in Congress seem determined to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.
And the former President just smacked down Mitch McConnell after one depressing November prediction.
Joe Biden is failing harder and faster than even America’s acknowledged worst president ever, Jimmy Carter.
Considering the soaring inflation, energy crisis, and border debacle, Republicans should be on easy street.
Instead, RINOs in Congress managed to give up their position by caving on gun control.
After delivering the ultimate insult to his base, Mitch McConnell is warning that Republicans are unlikely to take back the Senate in November.
“I think there’s probably a greater likelihood the House flips than the Senate,” McConnell told members of the press in his home state, Kentucky, last week. “Senate races are just different, they’re statewide, candidate quality has a lot to do with the outcome.”
That disparaging comment comes after he took a swipe at the current crop of Senate candidates a few months ago.
“In the Senate, if you look at where we have to compete in order to get into a majority, there are places that are competitive in the general election,” He said in April. “So, you can’t nominate somebody who’s just sort of unacceptable to a broader group of people and win. We had that experience in 2010 and 2012.”
Donald Trump jumped all over McConnell’s latest denigrating remarks.
In a Truth Social the former President went after the Senate Minority Leader.
“Why do Republicans Senators allow a broken down hack politician, Mitch McConnell, to openly disparage hard working Republican candidates for the United States Senate?,” Trump asked. “This is such an affront to honor and to leadership. He should spend more time (and money!) helping them get elected, and less time helping his crazy wife and family get rich on China!”
Shockingly, McConnell has refused to defend his wife, Elaine Chao, who the Epoch Times reports has family ties to a shipping company that does “extensive business in China.”
It seems likely the longtime Republican would like that business connection to China to disappear as quickly as it came up.
The war of words between Trump and McConnell comes as numerous tracking polls show Democrats moving into the lead on the generic Congressional ballot ahead of the November Midterm elections.
If McConnell were taking his leadership position seriously he’d be rallying the base instead of acting like a CNN pundit.
After all, the Senate is already evenly split with 50 members in each party and Democrats only clinging to the majority because they can count on Vice-President Kamala Harris as their tie-breaking vote.
It almost seems like D.C. Swamp creature McConnell is more comfortable with the Biden/Harris administration at the helm than with ensuring Donald Trump’s picks make it into office.
In the past McConnell has challenged anyone who wants his job to go after it—even as he smugly predicts he’ll be elected to lead Senate Republicans yet again.
It’s clearly past time to bring him down a notch or two.
