Former President Donald Trump attacked and beat up Senate Minority Chairman Mitch McConnell (R-KY) during a meeting on Saturday night for not doing more to discard the 2020 presidential election results.
Trump calls McConnell a “stupid son of AB ****”
During a speech to members of the Republican National Committee (RNC) at his Mar-a-Lago, Florida property, Trump allegedly called McConnell a “stupid son of a bitch,” according to The Washington Post.
He did not stop there and also proposed the Senate majority leader Chuck Schumer (DN.Y.) would have fought for Trump if they were in the same party.
“If it were Schumer instead of that stupid son of a bitch, Mitch McConnell, they would never let it. They would have fought against it, “said Trump. “I hired his wife. Did he ever say thank you? “
Trump was referring to his nomination from Elaine Chao, who served as the transportation secretary in his administration and is married to McConnell.

Back in February, Trump published a statement in which McConnell was beaten up in front of the entire nation.

“Mitch is a grumpy, grumpy, and unsmiling political hacker, and if Republican senators stay with him, they won’t win again,” Trump said at the time. “He will never do what needs to be done or what is right for our country.”
“Where necessary and appropriate, I will support major competitors who are working to make America great again and our America policies first,” he added. “We want brilliant, strong, thoughtful, and compassionate leadership.”

It did so days after McConnell issued a statement holding Trump responsible for the Capitol riots that took place in January.
“There is no question that President Trump is practically and morally responsible for provoking the events of the day,” McConnell said in the Senate. “No question.”
It seems that to this day no love is lost between Trump and McConnell.
