Senate Minority Leader Sen. Mitch McConnell is the one supposed to rally the Republicans against the left and, though the party is in the majority, at least try to make their attempts to ram through their priorities difficult.
But, instead of doing that, McConnell recently decided to go along with what Democrats want and backed their massive $1.7 trillion Omnibus spending bill, full as it was of juicy pork for Swamp Creatures and gobs of spending for far-left priorities.
In doing so, he caught a good bit of heat, particularly from former President Donald Trump. Posting on Truth Social about McCarthy’s backing down to the left on spending yet again, Trump said:
The Marxist Democrats must have something really big on Mitch McConnell in order to get him and some of his friendly “Republican” Senators to pass the horrendous “All Democrat, All the Way” OMINOUS Bill. It gives Border Security to other countries, but ZERO $’s to the U.S., it fully funds the corrupt “Justice” Department, FBI (which RIGGED the Presidential Election!), and even the Trump Hating Special “Prosecutor.” It is also a massive giveaway & capitulation to CHINA, making COCO CHOW so happy!
“Coco Chow”, for reference, is Mitch McConnell’s Chinese wife. She owns, alongside Mitch, part of a Chinese shipping company that does business with the CCP.
Continuing, Trump went on to say “If the Old Crow waited just 10 days, the Republican Majority in the House could have made the “Ominous” Bill MUCH, MUCH, MUCH BETTER. Just another win for the Democrats, Mitch, that wouldn’t have happened if “Trump” were President!”
Again suggesting that McConnell was going along with it because the left has dirt on him, Trump also said “They must have something on McConnell, because what he is doing is unthinkable—a Democrat’s dream! Just makes no sense.”
He also said “TITLE 42 is saving what’s left of our Country. Ending it, on top of our incredible, but now decimated, STAY IN MEXICO Policy, would greatly speed up the destruction of our Country. Both could have been put into the horrendous Mitch McConnell inspired “gift to the Democrats and China” OMINOUS Bill. What a disaster this Administration, coupled with the almost as bad RINOS, is. JUST CAN’T GET ANY WORSE!”
Trump wasn’t the only one to unload on McConnell. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene did so as well in a powerful Twitter thread, saying:
Mitch McConnell helps pass a nearly $2 TRILLION Onnimonster so that he can hand a $47 BILLION dollar check to Zelenskyy when he shows up in DC today. But in my district, many families & seniors can’t afford food & many businesses are struggling bc of Biden policies.
For, Mitch McConnell, the Republican leader in the Senate to override the upcoming Republican majority and literally steal our responsibility in the House to appropriate spending for nearly half of our upcoming majority, just to help Biden & his retiring Senator friends, this is a betrayal that can NOT be ignored and there must be action taken.
We, Republicans, as a national party need to have a serious talk about supporting any member of our party that betrays us in this manner. Our southern border is being invaded so badly and the American taxpayer’s dollars Mitch McConnell appropriated in this onnimonster only allows our money to help migrants into our country NOT keep them out.
El Paso just declared a state of emergency & has been over run by nearly 140,000 (that we know of) migrants since October! But Mitch McConnell could not even negotiate with his dear friends Chuck Schumer and Joe Biden??? Especially since they have all served together for almost as long as I’ve been alive? And Mitch had all the control bc they couldn’t get to 60 votes without him & Republicans.
