On Trump vs McConnell This Forum Sides with Trump

Because Even Donnie Cannot be Wrong All the Time

The Prez is highly critical of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R, Ky) over his failure to pass any repeal of ACA. 

WASHINGTON — President Trump on Thursday sharply escalated his criticism of the Senate majority leader, Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, raising the possibility that Mr. McConnell should perhaps relinquish his position if he cannot deliver on signature legislative priorities.
For days, Mr. Trump has trained his fire on Mr. McConnell, venting on Twitter about the Senate’s inability to pass a health care repeal bill before lawmakers left for the August recess.
Speaking to reporters on Thursday afternoon outside his golf club in Bedminster, N.J., Mr. Trump was asked if Mr. McConnell should consider stepping down.
“I’ll tell you what,” Mr. Trump began, “if he doesn’t get repeal and replace done and if he doesn’t get taxes done, meaning cuts and reform, and if he doesn’t get a very easy one to get done, infrastructure, if he doesn’t get them done, then you can ask me that question.”

McConnell took ownership of the ACA repeal and replace.  He decided the strategy and he was the leader of the process.  He is at the place where the buck stops.

Of course McConnell cannot take any blame, like Trumpie nothing that fails is his fault.  But regardless of what he thinks about not being the culprit here, this whiny little man is the one Trump should blame.  And good for him for doing it.
