McConnell Takes Time Out from Month-Long Vacation to Jab Trump Again… How Bout You Get Back to Work, Mitch?
Failed Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell took time out of his month-long vacation to criticize the president.
The majority leader released a statement on Wednesday on the Charlottesville riots and deadly car attack and on the proposed white nationalist rally in Lexington.
McConnell believes the First Amendment only applies to certain Americans.
From the Majority Leader’s webpage:
U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) released the following statement today condemning hate groups and reports of a rally in Lexington, Kentucky:
“The white supremacist, KKK, and neo-nazi groups who brought hatred and violence to Charlottesville are now planning a rally in Lexington. Their messages of hate and bigotry are not welcome in Kentucky and should not be welcome anywhere in America.
“We can have no tolerance for an ideology of racial hatred. There are no good neo-nazis, and those who espouse their views are not supporters of American ideals and freedoms. We all have a responsibility to stand against hate and violence, wherever it raises its evil head.”
Background: On Saturday, the Leader condemned the violence and hatred in Charlottesville.
“The hate and bigotry witnessed in Charlottesville does not reflect American values. I wholeheartedly oppose their actions.”
The First Amendment applies to all Americans even the Americans you hate with a passion.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
McConnell is on a month-long vacation after failing to repeal and replace Obamacare in the US senate.
Last week McConnell blamed the Republican president for his failure to pass legislation.
