McConnell > Trump

December 16, 2020 4:21 p.m.

Not a huge thing perhaps. But this is worth noting. Donald Trump has been lashing out at any and every Republican willing to question his claim to have won the 2020 election. But his swipe at Mitch McConnell today was really barely a swipe at all. Perhaps somewhere between a nudge and a plea. Trump has been go wild on Governors like Brian Kemp of Georgia and Doug Doucey of Arizona. He’s called for them to be primaried or even jailed. But Trump seems to know that he needs to tread gently with McConnell. That’s his limit. With Mitch he goes beta.
