Mitch McConnell’s childish defiance is at an end. He pitted himself against President Trump when he thought that he would fail. Now that Trump’s vision for America is becoming reality, McConnell’s licking at his heels like a dog.
“Well, let me just say, Mr. President, you made the case for the tax bill. But this has been a year of extraordinary accomplishment for the Trump administration. We’ve cemented the Supreme Court right-of-center for a generation,” McConnell raved on Wednesday.
“Mr. President, thanks to your nominees, we’ve put 12 circuit court judges in place — the most since the circuit court system was established in 1891. You hold the record.”
It’s funny how quickly things change. Trump has been in office for less than a year and McConnell has already been cowed. Sources on Capitol Hill say that the Republican elites are thinking about the best way to remove him from power.
“You’ve ended the overregulation of the American economy. And that, coupled with what we did last night and what the House finished this morning, means America is going to start growing again,” McConnell said.
Praise wasn’t the only gift that McConnell brought to his meeting with Trump. He also gave the president a personalized Louisville Slugger bat to represent the “home run” the administration had just hit by passing the tax reform bill.
“Going to bat for the middle-class with President Donald J. Trump on the #TaxCutsandJobsAct that will provide much-needed tax relief for American workers, families, and small businesses. Today I presented a personalized Louisville Slugger bat to the President in the Oval Office commemorating the home run on historic,” McConnell joked on Facebook.
