MAGA TANTRUM: Trump Rips McConnell And His Wife In Racist Rant Over Midterms Flop
Donald Trump on Sunday attempted to deflect blame for his party’s poor performance in the 2022 midterms by pointing his finger at Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and escalating his racist attacks against McConnell’s wife, former secretary of Transportation, Elaine Chao.
Trump has been blamed for leading the GOP to a series of embarrassing defeats with an avalanche of editorials and opinion articles in conservative media blaming the ex-president for valuing fealty above all other characteristics and dragging the Republican party down a path where its national presence was unpalatable for many Americans.
“It’s Mitch McConnell’s fault,” Trump wrote on Truth Social on Sunday. “Spending money to defeat great Republican candidates instead of backing Blake Masters and others was a big mistake. Giving 4 Trillion Dollars to the Radical Left for the Green New Deal, not Infrastructure, was an even bigger mistake.”
The twice-impeached former president then took aim at McConnel’s wife using an angry racist tone.
“He blew the Midterms, and everyone despises him and his otherwise lovely wife, Coco Chow!”
The obvious racist attack on McConnell’s wife is only the latest in a series of increasingly ugly remarks that Trump has made about his former secretary of Transportation despite her now-total step back from the public sphere.
Both Mitch McConnell and Ms. Chao have largely ignored the personal and racist attacks from Trump, which appears to make the former president even angrier.
The bizarre, one-sided feud appears completely motivated by McConnell’s status as the highest-ranking obstacle or opponent to Donald Trump’s dominance of the GOP. Trump is also upset with McConnell for calling the attack on the US Capitol on January 6 a “violent insurrection”.
