Mitch Mauls MAGA with Ugly Midterm Insults

Linkedin Share

With the GOP facing a bit of an identity crisis heading into midterm season, longtime Congressman Mitch McConnell appears to be taking a rather blunt assessment of the situation.

McConnell represents the old guard of the Republican Party.  The status quo.  The boring version of the group.  And, seeing as the Kentucky Senator has long been catered to during his lengthy public service career, he doesn’t appear to have any desire to things to change – no matter how much the Republican base does.

Earlier this week, McConnell took direct aim at the MAGA Movement, which threatens to make old-school Republicans like himself disappear altogether.

The senator made the honest prediction at the Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce luncheon on Thursday afternoon.

“I think there’s probably a greater likelihood the House flips than the Senate,” the minority leader anticipated. “Senate races are just different, they’re statewide. Candidate quality has a lot to do with the outcome.”

And his hopes for the future appeared grim.

“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,” McConnell explained.

McConnell has been a fly in MAGA’s ointment for some time, and this insulting suggestion about “candidate quality” will undoubtedly ruffle a few more feathers.
