News Tech: Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., came under fire from former President Donald Trump on social media for doubting the party’s chances of regaining congressional majority in the upcoming midterm elections.
“Why do Republicans Senators allow a broken down hack politician, Mitch McConnell, to openly disparage hard working Republican candidates for the United States Senate,” Trump asked.
Trump questioned the Senate minority leader’s party loyalty in a post on Truth Social, labelling him a “broken down political hack.”
He added: “This is such an affront to honor and to leadership. He should spend more time (and money!) helping them get elected, and less time helping his crazy wife and family get rich on China!”
“Right now, we have a 50-50 Senate and a 50-50 country, but I think when all is said and done this fall, we’re likely to have an extremely close Senate. Either our side up slightly or their side up slightly,” he added.
“Democrats are painting Republican Senate candidates in upcoming elections and midterms as cruel and out of touch,” Hannity said during his Friday show. “Well, apparently Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is content to leave them out to dry and fend for themselves.” “Listen to these comments, they’re very encouraging,” he added, before playing a clip of McConnell’s comments.
Hannity continued: “How about you get out there, Mitch, and fight for your team? What’s your agenda, Mitch, or would you rather just sit by and watch helplessly as Democrats lie to your face, pass another $500 billion green energy boondoggle?” The News host concluded: “His term as a leader needs to come to an end.”
McConnell’s shaky optimism comes as Republican senatorial candidates Blake Masters of Arizona, Herschel Walker of Georgia, and Mehemt Oz of Pennsylvania are trailing in their respective races. Sen. Ron Johnson, R-WI, also trails in his re-election effort.
