Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ki.), In a surprisingly thin-skinned response, sent out an angry letter to Joe Joden on Friday, warning him that he would no longer deal with the limit because of Senate Majority Leader Chuck. Schumer’s “childish” “tantrum” which “poisoned the well.”
Eleven Senate Republicans on Thursday voted with Democrats to temporarily lift the two-day limit by December, in a deal McConnell struck with Schumer.
But that night, Schumer protested against his Republican colleagues in the Senate for his “dangerous and risky biased game” and praised fellow Democrats for “bringing our country back from the brink of what the Republicans tried to push us to do.”
McConnell stressed in his letter to Biden that Republicans have “filled the leadership vacuum that has plagued the Senate since January … if all your democratic governments go into another avoidable crisis, I will not provide such assistance anymore.”
He complained to Schumer that he had been in turmoil for so long that he had “brought the nation to the brink of disaster.” McConnell forgot the debt because of former President Donald Trump’s illegal federal spending and massive corporate tax cuts.
Then, on Thursday night, “in a bizarre scene, Senator Schumacher exploded in a voice that was so biased, angry, and eroded that even Democratic senators were visibly embarrassed for him and for her,” McConnell complained.
In fact, at one point in the New York Democrat talk, Sen. Joe Manchin (DW.Va.) is seen sitting behind him with his hands on his head.
The Hill reported that Manchin, Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) and Republican Whip Sen. John Thun South Dakota later spoke with Schumer. Thien later told reporters: “I let him get it,” according to The Hill.
McConnell complained that this “contains and exacerbates a pattern of disqualification from the tantrum senator count”.
McConnell warned that Schumer’s “childish behavior only further alienated Republicans who helped ease this short-term patch. It has poisoned even better. ”
“In light of the hysterics … I will not support any future efforts to alleviate the consequences of future democratic mismanagement,” McConnell concluded.
Critics have suggested that McConnell should be used as a scapegoat in light of the abuse he received from the former president. According to Bob Woodward and Robert Costa in their new book “Peril”, in a significant episode, Trump made a “hate speech” to McConnell when he congratulated Biden on winning the presidency.
