In a strongly worded statement on the Senate floor Thursday, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said that Democrats are trying to declare war on American institutions because they don’t like the outcome of recent votes and decisions.
In the six-minute statement, McConnell took issue with Democrats wanting to tear down statues, pack the Supreme Court with more justices, and make Washington, D.C. a state, which would give it two senators.
“No longer do disappointments for Democrats mean that Democrats need better arguments. Now, disappointments for Democrats are claimed as proof, proof, that our country is fundamentally broken or that James Madison messed something up,” McConnell said. “So while we have far-left mobs attacking statues of our Founding Fathers from coast to coast, we have far-left politicians attacking the institutions those founders left us.”
McConnell also referenced threats Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) made against Supreme Court justices if they ruled against removing abortion restrictions, and he noted that the court did vote the way Schumer wanted after the threats.
The only question I have for McConnell, Trump and the rest of the GOP is, what are you going to do to stop them?
