Joe Biden believes that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) ― the man who refused to even vote on Merrick Garland for the Supreme Court ― will suddenly become “mildly cooperative” with Democrats once Donald Trump is no longer president.

The former vice president and current Democratic presidential candidate made his rosy prediction at a Tuesday fundraiser in New York City at the mega law firm Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom. He said he believes that “all politics is the logical extension of human nature, personal relationships.”

According to the pool report, Biden paused before the words, and the crowd chuckled.

Much of Biden’s pitch centers on his ability to reach out to Republicans ― both Trump voters who may now be frustrated with the president and GOP lawmakers who might not be willing to work with someone they’re less familiar with or someone who is more progressive.

There’s no doubt that Biden has deep ties in the Senate, where he served for decades. He and McConnell have long been friends. McConnell was the only GOP senator to travel to Delaware for the funeral of Beau Biden, the former vice president’s son who passed away from brain cancer in 2015.

But McConnell is a modern-day Machiavelli, known for his ruthlessness. And there’s absolutely no indication that he will cooperate at all with Democrats, even if they take control of the White House.

Mitch is on his last legs. He knows it. Doing as much damage as he can. What a pitiful way to end a long career.

2024 is a long ways away. Will McConnell still be in Congress then.
