Has Anybody Seen Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell?

RINO Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has gone into hiding during the final weeks of the 2016 election and it’s not just the presidency that’s at stake, it’s the United States Senate majority that is currently being held by McConnell and Donald Trump’s Republican Party.

And that majority is at risk of being lost (not that the majority has meant much under McConnell’s feckless leadership anyway, but I digress). One would think that if McConnell cared about losing his party’s majority, he would be out campaigning like a madman for Republicans.

Instead, McConnell is silent, as he always is when tough issues are at task, hiding from the media and voters because he doesn’t want to answer questions about his party’s nominee, Donald Trump, who has been under siege since October 8, since a video was released showing the bloviating billionaire and reality TV star cavalierly boasting about sexually assaulting women and getting away with it because of his celebrity status including the infamous line — “grabbing them by the pussy.”

Appearing on CNN Thursday, declaring that Mitch McConnell “enabled” Donald Trump and that if the Senate loses its majority to the Democrats, McConnell must be held accountable.

“There’s one person that really desperately needs some accountability [if the GOP loses the Senate] in this and that is Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell,” Carpenter told the CNN panel when discussing the matter. “At a time as late as August, he was reassuring his colleagues, telling them we will not lose one Senate seat because of Donald Trump,” Carpenter reminded us.

Amanda Carpenter is absolutely correct. In July, McConnell dropped these reassuring words to Republicans in an interview with NBC News’ Kelly O’Donnell:

“Donald Trump won the nomination the old-fashioned way. He got more votes than anybody else. And I don’t think we’re gonna lose a single Senate seat because of Donald Trump.”

Setting aside that Donald Trump viciously and dishonestly smeared his more electable primary opponents — like Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio — with no defense given by McConnell, and that the GOP allows Democrats to vote in many Republican primaries, many who voted for Trump to help Hillary in the general election, Carpenter said that McConnell should be held accountable if Republicans lose the Senate.

“Mitch McConnell thinks he’s a master tactician? That is a giant gross miscalculation and you don’t see Mitch McConnell anywhere trying to mitigate the damage that he helped cause by enabling Trump,” Carpenter passionately opined.

But you’ll never see McConnell take much of a passionate stance or really fight for anything of value. He won’t take much of a stance on whether he’s for or against Trump (or for or against Obama for that matter). The only thing he really seems to be passionate about is defeating conservatives who might actually reduce the size and overreach of government.
