McConnell Turns on MAGA with NASTY Insult

For a while now, it has been rather apparent that the GOP is dealing with a bit of an identity crisis.  They’re splitting much in the same way that the Democrats are, but with an actual figurehead pulling one half of the party off to the right.

And, as Donald Trump continues to exert his authority over the right side of the aisle, the old guard is growing nervous.  Lashing out at times.

This week, the latest flailing from inside the party came from Kentucky Senator Mitch McConnell, who was rather insulting when speaking about the MAGA-aligned candidates making their way through the primary process.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., thinks that Republicans have a lukewarm chance of flipping the Senate in November, citing “candidate quality” as a factor.

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”.

Then came the razor-sharp quip.

“Candidate quality has a lot to do with the outcome.”

McConnell has appeared to be moving a little further away from the MAGA Movement with each passing week, but this commentary seems to have put some real space between he and the former President’s supporters.
