There’s a reason why Mitch McConnell is the Minority Leader in the U.S. Senate.
He’s a politician who will do or say anything if he believes it will benefit him personally.
And Mitch McConnell just teamed up with Anthony Fauci to threaten Americans in a way you won’t believe.
McConnell is known for flip-flopping back and forth on the issues over the years.
During the beginning of the 2016 Presidential race, when attacking Trump was the popular thing to do in the Republican Party, McConnell was one of the most vocal anti-Trump voices in the nation.
However, that all changed when Donald Trump defeated Hillary Clinton, as Mitch McConnell quickly joined the America First pro-Trump movement because it was the popular thing to do at the time.
McConnell not only publicly praised Trump, but often appeared alongside him at events.
In fact, most experts believe the reason why McConnell won his last election was because Donald Trump endorsed him.
Of course, once re-elected, Mitch McConnell turned on Trump when he questioned the results of the 2020 election.
“Mitch is a dour, sullen, and unsmiling political hack, and if Republican Senators are going to stay with him, they will not win again,” Trump said in a fiery statement about McConnell’s betrayal.
But now Mitch McConnell is so desperate to prove that he is on that side that he just threatened Americans in an attempt to get more people to get the COVID-19 vaccine.
Worse yet, McConnell even threatened to shut down the economy if Americans didn’t run out and get the vaccine.
“These shots need to get in everybody’s arms as rapidly as possible or we’re going to be back in a situation in the fall that we don’t yearn for — that we went through last year,” McConnell said.
“It never occurred to me that there would be difficulty getting Americans to get the shot,” he added.
The fact is, many healthy young people have weighed the risks posed by the coronavirus and chosen to not get the vaccine.
Others who’ve had the virus and recovered are banking on their natural immunity to be enough to fend off any variants or additional strains.
But instead of trying to persuade their fellow Americans, authoritarian bureaucrats are threatening economic harm on America if folks continue to refuse to get the vaccine.
