‘Cocaine Mitch’ Is a Conservative Hero [OPINION]
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is going to continue to fill the federal bench with conservative judges. He is going to be reelected in 2020, too.
The nickname "Cocaine Mitch" comes from an attack by a political opponent and unlike most politicians, Sen. McConnell turned an attack into a plus. His campaign is selling shirts and raising campaign funds from the attack.
The greatest accomplishment of President Donald J. Trump and Sen. Mitch McConnell is their partnership on the nominations and confirmations of federal judges. Long after Donald Trump is out of the White House, his selections for the court will be ruling on laws.
The left wing of the Democratic Party isn't actually offended by the tactics and strategies of Mitch and Donald to fill the federal bench with conservatives. They are envious and angry because as of late they have been losing. If they ever get back into power they will use the same legal methods.
The senator from Kentucky is more than just the Majority Leader in the Senate. Elaine L. Chao, the first and only Secretary of Transportation in the Trump Administration is also the wife of Sen. McConnell. This is her second cabinet post and she is in line to control the rollout of huge federal funds if there is an increase in infrastructure funding.
The senior senator from Kentucky is a conservative hero and he will go down in history as the man who helped shape the country for generations.
