Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) is sharing which Democratic president he would pick to be stranded with on a desert island if he could only have “one companion.”
During an event at the Kentucky Chamber of Commerce on Tuesday, McConnell was asked, “You’re stranded on a desert island and you can only have one companion. Your choices are Joe Biden, Barack Obama, Bill Clinton or Jimmy Carter. Who do you choose?”
“That’s a tough choice,” the Kentucky senator responded.
He ruled out former President Jimmy Carter first.
“I like President Obama. The only thing I didn’t like about him is he had a tendency to tell me to my face what I thought, and one time I had to say, ‘Mr. President, really, that’s not what I think,'” he said.
Finally, McConnell said he would choose the current occupant of the White House, “Biden and I did four bipartisan deals during the Obama administration, I consider him a personal friend. I was the only Republican who went to his son Beau’s funeral, so that would be an easy choice. I think Biden is a first-rate person.”

“He’s a first-rate person… Nevertheless, this is a bold left-wing administration. I don’t think they have a mandate to do what they are doing,” McConnell told reporters in April.
He added, “I’m gonna fight them every step of the way because I think this is the wrong prescription for America.”
