Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s speech at his 143rd Annual St. Jerome Fancy Farm Picnic descended into chaos as the crowd chanted “Retire!” at the RINO Republicans.
McConnell has faced multiple health issues this year, including a March fall and a press conference freeze-up.
McConnell has been the Republican leader in the Senate since 2006 and was first elected to the Senate in 1984.
According to Kentucky Today, McConnell is scheduled to serve until 2026, and his term as GOP’s leader ends in 2024.
But a recent video posted to Twitter showed the crowd chanting “retire,” a signal that voters are sick of RINO dinosaurs.
Some in the crowd chanted, “lost the Senate” during Mitch McConnell’s speech Spectrum News reported.
“This is my 28th Fancy Farm, and I want to assure you it’s not my last,” McConnell said in his only oblique reference to his health.
Booing continued as he said, “It’s not hard for Republicans to look good these days.”
” We’re up against the folks who gave you record high inflation, we’re up against folks who close schools and then told you teachers’ unions know what’s best, we’re up against folks who rather let repeat offenders walk free,” he said.
McConnell attacked Democratic Gov. Andy Beshear and President Joe Biden during his speech.
“Biden and Beshear aren’t working for Kentucky. Andy might as well be on the White House payroll, and it’s high time he was honest about it,” he said.
“It’s good we have a Republican General Assembly to keep the governor in check,” he said.
President Donald Trump also called for McConnell to retire.
“We have to have that,” Trump said.
“No, we have to have that. We have some people in the Senate that are fantastic and would be great at that position.”
