In this Majority Report clip, Emma Vigeland talks about everyone’s favorite grandpa figure: Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY). This human teddy bear of a man went on Fox News this morning to let his adoring fans know that he no longer supports their golden man-god, Donald Trump. He wants the midterms to be a referendum on how people “feel.”
That’s right, Mitch McConnell wants to know how everyone feels, guys. How are you? How are your feelings? How are your feelings about the Senate, more specifically? How about the fact that you allowed the Senate to be split equally in 2020? How does that make you feel? It should make you feel BAD. Okay! Back to ruining the country! It was a nice appearance.
Emma points out that Republicans splitting from Trump is a fundraising problem for both parties, but that in terms of this putting McConnell in a difficult position, Trump has no real means of responding anymore without social media or his short-lived blog.
