President Trump continues to slam spineless Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for complaining that Trump has “excessive expectations.” Well, senator, a lot of us who voted Republicans into power share those expectations – as well as the president’s frustration.
“I just want him to get to repeal and replace (of ObamaCare) done,” President Trump said this week. “I've been hearing repeal and replace now for seven years. I said, Mitch, get to work and let's get it done.”
Why doesn’t McConnell have the same sense of urgency the president has? It’s why I have said it is time for McConnell to step aside, something Trump was also asked about.
“Well, I'll tell you what,” Trump said. “If he doesn't get repeal and replace done and if he doesn't get taxes done, meaning cuts and reform, and if he doesn't get a very easy one to get done, infrastructure -- if he doesn't get them done, then you can ask me that question.”
The president's comments came in response to McConnell whining like a 5-year-old, complaining, making excuses to his constituents in Kentucky that the president's expectations are just too high. McConnell doesn’t seem to get that he and his fellow Republicans are the ones who set those excessive expectations. They're the ones who were promised over and over again for seven years they' were going to repeal and replace ObamaCare.
