Trump Goes Nuclear on McConnell, Slams ‘Broken Old Crow’ Who Should Have ‘Resigned a Long Time Ago’

view original post

Former President Donald Trump tore into Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) on Wednesday in a lengthy and strongly-worded statement.

Trump, who has been feuding with McConnell since the Kentucky Republican denounced his actions in the immediate aftermath of the January 6th insurrection at the U.S. Capitol, wrote that the senator should have resigned “a long time ago.”

McConnell has brushed off recent attacks from Trump and defended his vote for the infrastructure bill that President Joe Biden signed into law this week.

Last Monday, McConnell doubled down on his vote for the bill and lauded the $4 billion in federal funding for his state. “We have a lot of infrastructure needs, both in rural areas and with big bridges. It’s a godsend for Kentucky.”

Trump has previously slammed McConnell for giving the Democrats a win on their trillion dollar infrastructure bill and for not helping him pass his $2 trillion infrastructure proposal while he was president.

“McConnell is a fool and he damn well better stop their [Democrats] “Dream of Communism Bill” and keep his Senators in line, or he should resign now, something he should have done a long time ago,” Trump said of the continuing Congressional negotiations surrounding Biden’s Build Back Better proposal.

Trump continued to call McConnell “Broken Old Crow” – his apparent nickname for the Kentucky Republican.

McConnell previously brushed off Trump’s insult, saying, “Actually, it’s quite an honor … Old Crow is Henry Clay’s favorite bourbon,” referencing the former Speaker of the House from Kentucky known as the “Great Compromiser” in the wake of the Civil War.

Trump’s full statement is below:

When the Broken Old Crow, Mitch McConnell, agreed to a two-month extension, he allowed the Democrats to get their act together and pass the $1.2 Trillion “Non-Infrastructure” Green New Deal Bill, which is a disaster for America in that only 11% of the money will be spent on REAL Infrastructure, with most being spent on Green New Deal nonsense, with big tax increases. Its actual cost is over $2 Trillion, but the bigger disaster is yet to come in the next, much larger version of the Green New Deal, which some people say will be $5 Trillion. This was all allowed by Mitch McConnell’s incompetence and now I understand that a couple Republican Senators may get on board so that they can have yet another and even bigger victory, for the Democrats, while at the same time ensuring massive Inflation and the destruction of our Country as we know it. This is what happens when you allow a guy who lost an Election to take over the Office of the President. He obviously had no mandate, but they’re changing our Country and everything it stands for. Mitch McConnell couldn’t stop the first Bill so 19 Senators, including himself, joined in. That’s what he does—if you can’t beat them, join them. If he wasn’t so stupid and didn’t give the two-month extension, he could have stopped it all. Now he and his RINO friends will allow a much bigger and far worse Bill to pass, ruining our Country while giving the Democrats a great political lift, all at the same time. People, with the help of the Fake News Media, have already forgotten about the horrendous Afghanistan withdrawal, an economy and jobs that are in shambles, and so many other things. The good news is, they can’t forget about Inflation because it’s hitting them right in the face. This is the Broken Old Crow’s fault. He could have won it all using the Debt Ceiling—they were ready to fold. Now the Democrats have a big victory and the wind at their back. McConnell is a fool and he damn well better stop their “Dream of Communism Bill” and keep his Senators in line, or he should resign now, something he should have done a long time ago. Use the Debt Ceiling like it should have been used, you Old Broken Crow, to do so would hurt our Country far less than this horrible Bill. Any Republican in the House or Senate who votes for this Bill will never ever get a Trump Endorsement. Thank you, and good luck!
