Hannity pushes McConnell to deliver Trump-voter agenda: ‘Go big or go home’

“Why doesn’t McConnell have the same sense of urgency the president has?”

(National SentinelPolitics: Fox News host Sean Hannity on Thursday jumped into the fracas between President Donald J. Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., taking the president’s side after the Senate leader complained last week that Trump was expecting too much from the GOP-controlled Congress.

“President Trump continues to slam spineless Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for complaining that Trump has ‘excessive expectations.’ Well, senator, a lot of us who voted Republicans into power share those expectations – as well as the president’s frustration,” Hannity said. “I just want him to get to repeal and replace (of ObamaCare) done,” President Trump said this week. “I’ve been hearing repeal and replace now for seven years. I said, Mitch, get to work and let’s get it done.”

“I just want him to get to repeal and replace (of ObamaCare) done,” Trump told reporters this week. “I’ve been hearing repeal and replace now for seven years. I said, Mitch, get to work and let’s get it done.”

Hannity noted: “Why doesn’t McConnell have the same sense of urgency the president has? It’s why I have said it is time for McConnell to step aside, something Trump was also asked about.”

Trump largely dodged the question but did hint that maybe McConnell should do so if he can’t push through Obamacare repeal, tax cuts for individuals and corporations, and infrastructure spending.

“The president’s comments came in response to McConnell whining like a 5-year-old, complaining, making excuses to his constituents in Kentucky that the president’s expectations are just too high. McConnell doesn’t seem to get that he and his fellow Republicans are the ones who set those excessive expectations. They’re the ones who were promised over and over again for seven years they’ were going to repeal and replace ObamaCare,” Hannity said.

“Sen. John McCain of Arizona cast the deciding vote that derailed this effort to get rid of ObamaCare. Throw in senators Susan Collins, of Maine, and Lisa Murkowski, of Alaska, and McConnell, who can’t seem to get his people in line, and Americans can see we need new people in those positions.”
