Hannity: If McConnell can't lead, he should go fishing – or just go away

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.

He is seriously messing with some powerful people.
He can't be bribed or influenced. They ABSOLUTELY hate that. He will be obstructed by these bribe-taking sellouts at every turn.
POLITICIANS promised to repeal obamacare at the first chance. Ran on it. Then didn't do it. Now tell me how "your guy" is changing things?? It's a game and Trump doesn't play it.
As you can see, even so called Republicans are resisting the outsider who threatens their career gravy train. They will endure the stinging "two-face" accusations from their constituents. ANYTHING. Just don't let him clean this snake pit up.
Yes, indeed.
Keep cheering.
