‘No Animosity’ McConnell Brushes Off Trump Insult

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) on Tuesday told reporters that he wasn’t interested in getting into a food fight with former President Trump when asked about Trump’s comments that the leader was a “dumb son of a bitch.”

Trump blasted his former ally as a “dumb son of a bitch” and a “stone-cold loser” at an event with Republican donors at his Mar-a-Lago resort Saturday night, the same weekend he received a “Champion of Freedom Award” from the National Republican Senatorial Committee.

Asked about Trump’s insult coinciding with Senate Republicans giving the former president an award, McConnell said he’s not focusing on the president’s scorn.

“What I’m concentrating on is the future and what we are confronted with here is a totally left-wing administration, with a slight majority in the House, a 50-50 Senate trying to transform America into something no one voted for last year,” McConnell told reporters.
