Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., has a stunning dearth of knowledge when it comes to the Tea Party.
President Donald Trump and McConnell gave a joint press conference in the Rose Garden Monday, in which McConnell doubled down on his support for establishment candidates. Conservatives simply cannot win general elections, the senator from Kentucky said.
McConnell sorely needs a history lesson on the Tea Party, and LevinTV host Mark Levin was happy to oblige.
“Winners make policy and losers go home,” McConnell said.
Marco Rubio. Mike Lee. Rand Paul. Ted Cruz. These are but a few winning Tea Party candidates that were opposed by the establishment but are now key figures in the Republican majority, Levin reminded.
“His mentality is that conservatism can’t win,” Levin said. “This is why McConnell must go. The United States Senate is not going to move. It’s not going to embrace conservative principles. It’s not going to embrace the Constitution. It’s not gonna deal with the debt. It’s not gonna deal with the border. The United States Senate is not going to move from its current position unless Mitch McConnell is thrown out.”
