MCCONNELL: ‘I Think Biden is a First-Rate Person’

Senate Minority Leader seems like he would enjoy time on a desert island with the president...

(Headline USA) Back home in Kentucky on Tuesday to speak before the state’s Chamber of Commerce, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell was asked during a question-and-answer session a seemingly uncomfortable hypothetical.

“We can rule him out,” McConnell said, without explanation.

Next to be thrown off the island was Barack Obama.

“Biden and I did four bipartisan deals during the Obama administration,” he said. “I consider him a personal friend. I was the only Republican who went to his son Beau’s funeral, so that would be an easy choice. I think Biden is a first-rate person.”

Once you’re in Washington it must be easy to overlook pawing and sniffing women and children, cutting deals with foreign governments and businesses based on your political power, and destroying the country’s borders and values.

The swamp inside the beltway runs deep, indeed.
