McConnell Dismisses Trump’s Attacks: I’m Concentrating on the Future

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) is brushing off recent criticism from former President Donald Trump and says he is focused on confronting the current “totally left-wing administration.”

“What I’m concentrating on is the future and what we are confronted with here is a totally left-wing administration, with a slight majority in the House, a 50-50 Senate trying to transform America into something no one voted for last year,” McConnell said when asked about Trump’s recent criticism.

He reiterated, “That’s what I’m concentrating on.”

Watch the video below:

During a weekend event for the Republican National Committee, Trump reportedly took aim at the Kentucky lawmaker for not moving to kill the impeachment trial over allegations that he incited the riot at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6.

“If that were Schumer instead of this dumb son of a b***h Mitch McConnell, they would never allow it to happen. They would have fought it,” Trump said.

He also called McConnell a “stone cold loser.”

That same weekend, Trump was awarded the Champion for Freedom Award by the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC).

Sen. Rick Scott (R-Fla.), the chairman of the NRSC, tweeted on Monday, “President Trump is reported to have referred to Senator McConnell on Saturday as a ‘dumb SOB.'”

“As all of my colleagues in the Senate know, this is not true. He’s a very smart SOB,” he added.

  1. I’m not sure i understand how any Republican could not like McConnell. He has outplayed Democrats consistently the last 10 years, successfully blocked democrat policy while pushing through conservative policy.

    He is a slimeball, but one you would want on your team.

    1. I do not understand Trumpism logic either.
      When Trump supporters excused his erratic and corrupt behavior and bizarre tweets, they claimed they support him based on “judges and tax cuts.” MCCONNELL is responsible for the confirmation of THREE SCOTUS nominations and over 200 federal judges, not Trump. MANY of the 200 judges and 1 of the SCOTUS openings were a direct result of McConnell’s obstruction BEFORE Trump was elected.

      It was MCCONNELL that saved Trump from being acquitted of impeachment charges TWICE.

      I also don’t understand Trump calling McConnell a “stone cold loser.” Trump won the electoral college in 2016 and lost the popular vote by 3 million. In 2020 Trump LOST the electoral college vote AND LOST the popular vote by over 7 million. McConnell has won SEVEN 6 year terms as U.S. Senator and has never had to invoke a LIE regarding the results or incite an insurrection. I have not determined what the meaning of “stone cold loser” is in Trumpism. Outside of Trumpism, it is Donald J Trump.
