Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is furious at President Joe Biden for what the Senator called Biden’s divisive and “profoundly unpresidential” speech in Georgia Tuesday.
“Twelve months ago, a newly-inaugurated President Biden stood on the West Front of the Capitol, and here’s what he had to say: ‘My whole soul is in this: bringing America together, uniting our people, and uniting our nation,’” McConnell said in a speech from the House floor Wednesday. “Yesterday, the very same man delivered a deliberately divisive speech that was designed to pull our country farther apart.”
“Twelve months ago, this President said we should ‘see each other not as adversaries, but as neighbors.’ Yesterday, he called millions of Americans his domestic ‘enemies,’” McConnell continued. “Twelve months ago, this President said that ‘disagreement must not lead to disunion.’ But, yesterday, he invoked the bloody disunion of the Civil War, the Civil War, to demonize Americans who disagree with him. He compared a bipartisan majority of Senators to literal traitors. How profoundly, profoundly unpresidential.”

The fact that Mitch McConnell has “known” and “personally liked” Joe Biden – a liar, plagiarist, and an idiot – doesn’t speak well of the Senator.
