McConnell Calls Out Dems for ‘Trump Derangement Syndrome’: They ‘Reflexively’ Oppose Anything He’s for

Fox News/YouTube

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell slammed Democrats for being unwilling to work on immigration issues, claiming they had “Trump derangement syndrome.”

McConnell discussed Democrats’ reluctance to work with Republicans on the immigration issue, calling it “a real problem.” He used the example of a recent bill to provide aid at the border that was shot down by Democrats, despite there being no mention of the wall.

“I’m going to bring it up freestanding next week and see if they really aren’t interested in dealing with this mass of humanity that we have to take care of at the border,” said McConnell. “What’s the objection?”

He went as far as to claim that the president has had more cooperation with Mexico than with Democrats on addressing the immigration issue.

“I think it’s safe to say the president is getting more cooperation out of Mexico than he is out of congressional Democrats,” said McConnell.


McConnell also pointed out that Democrats are avoiding helping the president, saying they are against anything he supports.

“I think they’re suffering from Trump derangement syndrome,” said McConnell. “Whatever he’s for they are reflexively against. But this is humanitarian.”

While he did admit that Republicans are still supporting the wall, the bill will solely be addressing humanitarian issues related to immigration.

“We want to build a wall. We think the president has made a good case for that. That’s not what this is about. This is just the humanitarian part of the problem on our side of the border,” he said.

As IJR Red previously reported, many U.S. immigration officials have requested for Congress to address the issue. Republicans have slammed Democrats for their inability to work across party lines to address the issue and for supporting policies that would do nothing to help resolve the issue.

I am not confused or deranged by someone filled with hate.

“of course I hate these people. Let’s all hate these people because maybe hate is what we need if we’re going to get something done.” Donald Trump, on Larry King’s show

He doesn’t deserve to represent this great country.

The Democrats have a real problem and need to go back to their historic greatness, and start cooperating instead of always finding fault….things are accomplished with cooperation not decension…In God we Trust!!! Marcie

Today’s democrats may think they’re ahead, but all the disrespect, the horrible language repeatedly used, the many threats, and above all, the mob-like collaboration of discord by democrats to purposely counter everything that President Trump tries to put forth, but gets an absolute “no” from the left, that with all their childishness, mockery, and moreover, their constant refuting of his every single agenda, it is more than obvious, they are destroying the very fabric of our nations democracy of peaceful citizenry and good will to all. Apparently, today’s ‘children’ in Congress, with 24 or more running against Trump for President… Read more »


Isn’t this what we’ve been saying along? It doesn’t matter what the issue is, the Democrats will argue against and criticize anything Trump supports or suggests. As far as Mexico is concerned- they have no choice. They can’t afford a 5% tariff. As to how effective they’ll be ,
that remains to be seen.

I think McConnell is right. He has confirmed what President Trump has said. He is now getting more cooperation out of Mexico.

Isn’t Mitch the same guy who reflexively opposed anything Obama was for? Isn’t he the same guy who wouldn’t allow a vote for Obama’s SCOTUS nominee in 2016 but says he would in a 2020 election year? This fossil is the poster child for term limits, along with Pelosi and Shumer and all the other career creeps in Congress and the Senate.

If anybody is responsible for creating TRUMPINSTEIN it’s McConnell. He is the ultimate enabler who fed his personal dummy a continuous line of shit. While all were looking for Trump to do or say something stupid, McConnell was destroying Democracy and creating a Republican Party in his own mind without taking responsibility for his actions or concern for the consequences of those who will suffer from his personal agenda. Trump is a stone cold idiot who in some way was McConnell’s Manchurian Candidate.
