McConnell Gets a Kick Out of Democrats Taking Swipes at Him During Their First Debate: ‘I Love It’

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) shared his delight that he was referenced during the first round of debates for 2020 Democratic presidential candidates on Wednesday.

While speaking to reporters on Thursday, the lawmaker spoke out about the Democrats’ criticism, saying that he was glad the candidates were not happy with him.

“Being criticized for stopping the liberal agenda and confirming conservatives judges, I love it,” McConnell said when asked about the criticism targeted at him, according to The Hill.

He claimed that “the things they are criticizing me for, I plead guilty to.”

McConnell is known for speaking out against Democratic lawmakers and said in April that he is ready if a Democrat wins the election.

”If I’m still the majority leader in the Senate, think of me as the Grim Reaper. None of that stuff is going to pass,” McConnell said in April while speaking at an event in Kentucky.

During the debate, candidates were asked about their strategy for dealing with McConnell. Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) responded, saying that she was prepared for a fight.

Watch:

“Short of a Democratic majority in the Senate, you better understand the fight still goes on. It starts in the White House, and it means that everybody we energize in 2020 stays on the front lines come January 2021,” Warren said.

Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) also spoke out to blame McConnell for blocking bills on election security, and Washington Gov. Jay Inslee vowed to address climate change by “taking away the filibuster from Mitch McConnell.”

As IJR Red reported, this first round of debates was criticized those on social media and even President Donald Trump took a swipe at the candidates. The rest of the candidates will face off in a debate on Thursday night.

I know the feeling though on a much smaller scale when I get blocked on social media by Leftists who get flustered when you speak truths. They don’t know how to respond. It makes their brains go tilt tilt tilt.

Dems have no substance, just lots of promises to give away money.

What a blast to watch these moron’s stumble around. Watched the debates in between innings of ball game. Better than Comedy Central. What a gathering of idiots. Free this, free that. Nothing is free. Somebody pays you dorks. Socialism works until it runs out of other peoples money.

I have never observed such extreme Rudeness, as during this Debate. When a Moderator directed a specific question, to a Named Candidate, the other participants would interrupt and talk over the Candidate attempting to answer their question This extreme degree of incivility, made the Debate, resemble a Bar-room brawl ! It spoke Volumes, about the ineffectiveness of the Democrat Party !

I think The Democrats showed their extreme Rudeness, by not allowing, a specific Named Candidate, the chance to Answer a Question directed to that Candidate, without talking over the Person trying to Answer a Moderator’s specific question. I have never seen, such an extreme display of Incivility.

It was humorous that the ‘B’ team and that MSNBC mouthpiece went after McConnell and rarely mentioned President Trump. I reckon they’re saving their true vitriol for tonight, as if it matters.
