The Telling Moment McConnell Shows He Is Still A Trump Weasel

Mitch McConnell

Republican Senate Leader Mitch McConnell is refusing to say whether he will or will not support Donald Trump’s current run for the White House after the former president’s call to undermine the U.S. Constitution.

While speaking to the press on Wednesday, McConnell first appeared to condemn the president’s request.

“First, let me just say that anyone seeking the presidency who thinks that the Constitution could somehow be suspended or not followed, it seems to me would have a very hard time being sworn in as president of the United States,” McConnell told reporters.

But when pressed about his support for Trump, McConnell seemed to struggle with the question.

“This is the second week in a row you’ve come out to begin your press conference criticizing Donald Trump,” a reporter off-camera said. “Can you say categorically that you do not support him if he were the Republican nominee?”

McConnell could not.

“What I’m saying is it would be pretty hard to be sworn in, to the presidency, if you’re not willing to uphold the Constitution. That’s what I said, and I just said it again,” McConnell stated.

“How about your personal support?” the reporter shot back.

McConnell ignored the question again.
