Trump’s butt boy strikes again.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Thursday night shrugged off outrage over President Donald Trump’s willingness to receive foreign dirt on political opponents, chalking it up to partisan bitterness over the 2016 election.
McConnell has frequently defended the President, but Thursday’s comments were notable given the severity of the uproar over Trump’s remarks, which put him at odds with national security professionals within his own administration and raised questions about whether he was inviting foreign adversaries to again meddle in US democracy.
“They just can’t let it go, Laura,” McConnell said to Fox News’ Laura Ingraham when asked about Democrats’ response to Trump’s remarks, which have again stirred talk of impeachment. “I said weeks ago, case closed. We got the Mueller report, the only objective evaluation that will be conducted.”
Ingraham also asked, “Do you think the President made a mistake in the way he answered that question when he said, ‘Maybe I would, maybe I wouldn’t. I would hear them out.’ Would you answer the question that way?”
“He gets picked at every day about every different aspect of it,” McConnell replied, “but the fundamental point is they are trying to keep the 2016 election alive.”
Like Trump McConnell is a national embarrassment and should be removed from office at the earliest opportunity.
McConnell is up for reelection in 2020, but so far there are no Democratic challengers.
That’s too bad because I would think that anybody with a heartbeat and whose lips are not permanently attached to Donald Trump’s ass would have a legitimate shot.
