Given the laundry list of democrat-led attacks that Donald Trump has deflected during his time in office, it should come as no surprise that the left side of the aisle is raising the white flag.
Russia, tax returns, the 25th Amendment, racism – these are all part and parcel to the progressive posse’s pedantic opposition the the President of the United States. Their attempts to delegitimize The Donald have largely failed, however, and the democrats are now as frustrated as ever.
With their semantic spears unable to pierce the tough skin of Trump, the left have now turned their ire on the number two republican in DC: Mitch McConnell.
Time’s up, @SenateMajLdr. Let’s vote on gun safety legislation NOW. Every day you wait, more tragedies happen.

Our thoughts are with the victims, their families, & everyone injured in the shooting in Odessa & Midland, TX.

These tweets weren’t the only attacks on McConnell, either.
During Sunday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Kasie DC,” 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH) criticized Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) for not taking up gun control measures in the wake of incidents of gun violence around the country.
“I think it’s absolutely ridiculous, Steve, and it’s infuriating to me and so many thousands and millions of other Americans who are watching this unfold every single day, week in the United States, not just the mass shootings but also the shootings of one or two people through gun violence every single day in communities across the United States,” he said. “We’re sick of this. And we’re infuriated, and we want action. We want Mitch McConnell to get off his ass and do something in the United States Senate. How you can watch the stories of fathers getting killed with two kids, a 17-month-old kid getting damage from shrapnel, 15-year-old high school kid, and do absolutely nothing is infuriating to every American who has common sense and 90 percent with the polling who want something done. And to push this off on mental health — then why the hell is the president’s — both of his health care initiatives, one from the House and one from the Senate last year, kick 20 million people off their health care, that includes mental health coverage? So, he’s completely full of it as well.”
Ryan completed his rant by implying that the growth of anti-gun groups could soon rival the NRA for political sway on Capitol Hill, stating that, when it comes down to it, “[the NRA] are going to lose”.
