Donald Trump slammed Mitch McConnell as a “loser” after the Senate Minority Leader criticized the former President’s media-hyped dinner with Kanye West and little-known commentator Nick Fuentes.
McConnell took the bait from the media and spoke out about a dinner guest most Americans have never heard of in Fuentes.
“First, let me just say that there is no room in the Republican Party for anti-Semitism or white supremacy,” McConnell told reporters unprompted.
“And anyone meeting with people advocating that point of view, in my judgment, are highly unlikely to ever be elected president of the United States.”

Trump Describes McConnell as a Loser Following Fuentes Comments
McConnell’s statement was mind-numbingly idiotic.
It’s a comment the media ate up and yet another indication that the top GOP senator is not smart enough to do battle with the Democrat-aligned media.

They say ‘jump’ and the Kentucky Republican, without skipping a beat, performs for their amusement like a circus monkey.
Trump responded in kind, pointing out that McConnell is a “loser.”
“Mitch is a loser for our nation and for the Republican Party who would not have been re-elected in Kentucky without my endorsement, which he begged me for because he was going down,” Trump said in an interview with Fox News.

Trump also reiterated in the interview that he did not know who Fuentes was, something he has previously insisted. Which would put him in the same company as 99.99% of the rest of America.
“I had never heard of the man — I had no idea what his views were, and they weren’t expressed at the table in our very quick dinner, or it wouldn’t have been accepted,” he said.
So am I supposed to be more angry at Donald Trump for having dinner with Nick Fuentes than I am with Joe Biden for delivering the eulogy for the Grand Wizard of the KKK?
I don’t think Trump knew anything about Nick, but I damn sure know Biden knew that Grand Wiz!

Pence Calls for an Apology
McConnell isn’t the first prominent Republican to do the work of the media and Democrats in attacking Trump.
Earlier this week, former Vice President Mike Pence said Trump should apologize.
“President Trump was wrong to give a white nationalist, an anti-semite and a Holocaust denier a seat at the table and I think he should apologize for it and he should denounce those individuals and their hateful rhetoric, without qualification,” Pence said.

Of course, Pence and McConnell are simply acting like trained seals for the leftist media. Or they sense Trump is vulnerable right now following the midterms and are pouncing.
Either way, their posturing is little more than, as American Greatness writer Julie Kelly contends, the “dumbest performative politics.”
They fall for it every time—dumbest performative politics I’ve ever seen.
Biden accuses half the country of being fascists—describes unvaccinated as killers. His DOJ continues to round up, prosecute Trump supporters almost 2 years after Jan 6.

Trump and McConnell’s feud has been growing more intense in recent months.
Aside from calling McConnell a “loser,” Trump has blasted him for supporting “Democrat-sponsored bills,” an action he insists means the Kentucky lawmaker has a “death wish.”
Good question by President Trump. McConnell is voting for all this Democrat legislation. Or waving it through. Before midterm elections.https://t.co/4hI2QtAzCo

Trump has consistently been calling on McConnell to be removed from his leadership role “immediately,” saying he is little more than “a pawn for the Democrats.”
