perhaps you've seen the clip. Mitch McConnell standing before God and country declaring that "in order to pass legislation we need the signature of the president". This was the press conference where he accused Democrats who are only doing their job of "theatrics". This man is majority leader the Senate of the United States. He's well versed in how our government works. It's taught in all of our public high schools. There's even a "School House Rock" video about it for goodness sake....

So why is he standing there lying about how legislation is passed?

People like to blame Trump. But, the truth is Moscow Mitch broke the Senate long before Trump was elected. This is the same man that said he was going to make President Obama a one term president. He's also the same man who refused to work with Obama , even on legislation that Republican's supported before he was elected. The same man that refused to even hold a confirmation hearing for President Obama's Supreme Court nomination.

Moscow Mitch is exhibit "A" of what's wrong with our government.

He's one of the biggest reasons why we now have a president like Trump.

People prefer to view Trump as the reason for everything but you are right, he is a symptom not a cause. McConnell is the stereotypical cloaked dude in the smoky back room orchestrating things.

he's just using Trump. I feel for all the parents and teachers trying to teach their kids about American exceptionalism. They're learning one thing in our pubic schools and at home. While seeing another completely different thing in real life. Nothing new for sure. But now, Trump is making it harder to ignore the discrepancies in what we're telling our kids. Maybe, in a odd sort of way, that's a good thing. Kids are generally more informed than past generation these days anyway - thanks to the internet.

Its not new at all but I think now we are just seeing politicians without edit buttons. People used to exhibit etiquette and self control and now they dont. What comes to their minds is now said. They took transparency to a whole new level.:)
