The inability and unwillingness of congressional republicans to help President Trump achieve his stated objectives has irked many a Kentuckian.
The Bluegrass State’s citizens chose to give Donald Trump all eight electoral votes available during the 2016 election, demonstrating their overwhelming confidence in the direction that The Donald was looking to take America. Trump’s candidacy was based on simple principles that appealed to the law-abiding and God-fearing people of the Bible Belt, in which Kentucky squarely lies. Then-candidate Trump promised to restore law and order to our nation’s immigration enforcement, boost the economy by putting American workers first, and reverse the damage done to the middle class by former President Barack Obama’s horrific healthcare policies.
When Trump reached the White House, however, things took a turn.
Not only was the newly minted President facing an unprecedented backlash from the democrats that remained in Washington after Obama’s departure, but from the former President himself in the form of a 12-man team created in order to “keep tabs” on Trump.
Then, came the real treachery: Republicans began secretly turning against the President, stifling his every ambition and discarding the wishes of the American people who elected him. In the process of this wide-open rebellion against the President, Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell has become a lightning rod for controversy.
McConnell has been completely incapable of advancing the President’s agenda in the Senate, even with a Republican majority. This has led many to believe that McConnell himself is part of the left’s “resistance” to the President, and it has prompted Kentuckians to advertise their disdain for the Senator in impressively grandiose ways.
“A vocal anti-Trump organization is not letting up on Kentucky Sen. Mitch McConnell.
“Indivisible Kentucky posted its final billboard on southbound Interstate 65 on Wednesday morning, which tells the Republican Majority Leader the group has ‘had enough.’
“‘Calling for the long-term senator to step down or be replaced at the end of his term, it bears the bold slogan, “We’ve Had Enough!,”‘ a statement from Indivisible Kentucky said.
“The billboards are set to be positioned on I-65 for the next two months.
“‘We’re inviting citizens to join us in this effort by taking pictures of the billboards (not while driving, of course!) and post them to social media with the hashtag #DitchMitch2020,’ the statement said. “
McConnell is far from the first republican to out himself as an anti-Trump force during the President’s first 6 months in office, nor will he be the last.
Joining McConnell’s traitorous forces are men like John “Songbird” McCain, who has repeatedly vowed to oppose the President on a number of issues. His latest caper includes voting “no” on an Obamacare repeal bill that may have been the last hope for Americans hoping to get out from under the thumb of the costly and ineffective system.
