And A Senate First: Mitch McConnell Said He Was Wrong About Obama

Earlier this week, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell was spouting President Donald Trump’s talking point that President Barack Obama had left the nation without a plan to handle a pandemic. Whoops…not true.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said on Thursday he was mistaken in claiming that the Obama administration had failed to leave a pandemic playbook for the Trump White House.

“I was wrong,” McConnell said in an evening interview with Fox News’ Bret Baier. “They did leave behind a plan. So, I clearly made a mistake in that regard.”

emphasis mine

I am not surprised that this has been a mantra from President Trump. He is willing to lie with fervor, particularly around anything related to President Obama. But I can’t believe that Sen. McConnell has so totally sold his soul to the president that he had to repeat something he had to know wasn’t true.
