It wasn’t always like this. At the start of his presidency, Mitch McConnell was a roadblock, not a leader and he went against Trump almost as often as Chuck Schumer. But, over time McConnell has come around and is joining Trump in the battle for the country. He really came out fighting in the Kavanaugh affair. He never faltered, and the vote came as quickly as was possible. He has joined with Lindsay Graham in coming out to fight and to win. This could be the start of something big.
“Senate Democrats and their allies are trying to destroy a man’s personal and professional life on the basis of decades-old allegations that are unsubstantiated and uncorroborated,” McConnell said during a September speech from the Senate floor. “This is what the so-called ‘Resistance’ has become. A smear campaign, pure and simple, aided and abetted by members of the United States Senate.”
Would you see Mitch McConnell 1.x having said this from the floor of the Senate in January? Heck, I couldn’t even see him saying it from the confines of his living room.
Yet, in an interview with the Washington Examiner, McConnell insisted he wasn’t one of the Republicans “radicalized” by the Kavanaugh nomination process. Instead, he says his warming toward the Trump administration is based off of what it’s done in conjunction with the Republican-controlled Congress.
But the reason that McConnell says Trump won him over, it was because of results. It’s hard to argue against success.
