He's never been a great leader and he's always been a cancer on this country. He played a gambit to set up his tenure as Minority Whiner and prevent the same intensity/turnout issues he saw two days ago from showing up in 2022.ok?
I'm not saying the guy has always been a great leader. I'm also not saying he was operating completely altruistically yesterday. I am saying he gave a solid speech and displayed bipartisan leadership at a moment of crisis. Yes, he took a few partisan cracks, but in general, he did the right thing in that instance
Look at the kid they interviewed after the woman got shot. That kid specifically said "they think $2k checks are a joke" when listing his grievances. Josh Hawley (R) wants $2k. Bernie wants $2k. Biden promised $2k.
Look at the minimum wage vote in Florida, or the Medicaid expansion in Oklahoma voted on by the people. People have had it with Mitch's sh!t. Across the board.
