    McConnell and Trump haven't spoken in weeks: report

    President Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) have not spoken in weeks, The New York Times reported Tuesday, a sign of the deteriorating relationship between the two men.

    McConnell has also said privately that he is unsure if Trump can recover from a long series of controversies and crises that have rocked his administration over the summer, according to the Times.

    Trump and McConnell have feuded openly in recent weeks after the Kentucky Republican said during a speech in his home state that the president may have "excessive expectations" about pushing his agenda through Congress.

    Those remarks came after Senate Republicans failed to pass legislation repealing and replacing ObamaCare.

    In response, Trump publicly questioned McConnell's leadership, suggesting to reporters earlier this month that McConnell might want to consider stepping down if he's unable to pass the president's legislative agenda.

    The feud, according to Tuesday's report, also heated up outside of the public eye. The president berated McConnell in an Aug. 9 phone call over the Senate's narrow rejection of a "skinny" ObamaCare repeal bill, according to the Times. The report says the call descended into shouting and profanity.

    In that call, Trump also accused McConnell of refusing to protect him from ongoing investigations into Russia's interference in the 2016 election and possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Moscow....

    I'm noting here that this was bigger than PISSED OFF. Apparently the last time Trump and McConnell talked it devolved in a very fierce shouting match over the phone. The thrust of the Trump's ire was NOT about the ACA not getting passed, he was LIVID that McConnell wasn't averting or covering his ass on the RUSSIA INVESTIGATION. McConnell briefed other Senators in reall time so likely he wanted a 'paper' trail so to speak.

    Apparently it was UGLY! Laden with expletive deletives loud and again, they haven't talked since. That was, I believe, on the 9th.

    For those TRUMP APOLGISTS out there, this more 'obstruction of justice'.
