CNN’s Manu Raju asked McConnell, “Are you comfortable with the leader of your party facing criminal charges and a criminal trial for a presidential candidate in the middle of an election?” he asked.
McConnell replied, “Okay, man. Let me put it this way. He may have hit my head but I didn’t hit him that hard. Nice try.”
Mitch McConnell is one of the few elected officials in the Republican Party who wants nothing from Donald Trump. As the Republican leader in the Senate, McConnell has a big fundraising career and an iron grip.
If there is an official in the Republican Party who will lead the effort to oust Trump from the Republican Party, Mitch McConnell may be one of those people.
The fact that he chose not to try to oust Trump from the Republican Party means that the former president will roll over DeSantis and all other Republican contenders to win the 2024 Republican presidential nomination.
Mitch McConnell has been the epitome of Republican cowardice.
