McConnell Blasts' Diminished' Presumptive Nominee Donald Trump

As if we needed another sign that the “old guard” GOP was completely delusional, Kentucky Senator and swamp creature Mitch McConnell has now attempted to suggest that the shine has worn off of Donald Trump.

Yes, this is the same Donald Trump who remains the presumptive nominee for the GOP in 2024, and it’s the same Donald Trump who commands the most vocal and enthusiastic voting bloc in the entire nation.

McConnell’s comments seemed to gloss over that reality, however.

Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell deferred to former President Donald Trump’s handpicked candidates in competitive midterm races, culminating in jarring defeats and a larger Democratic majority that bucked the odds.

He promises not to let that happen again, insisting he will “actively look for quality candidates” to promote in the 2024 primaries.

In a rare and pointed criticism of the former president, who’s seeking a comeback in two years, McConnell said Trump’s power is on the wane and called on him to back off Senate primaries.

There was no way to misconstrue McConnell’s sentiment.

“Here’s what I think has changed: I think the former president’s political clout has diminished,” McConnell told NBC News on Wednesday in a wide-ranging interview in his Capitol Hill office.

There is little doubt that the MAGA Movement is chomping at the bit to prove McConnell wrong.
