Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) ripped former President Obama for speaking out against the current administration, something rarely done in recent years.
McConnell (R-KY) appeared on Monday’s episode of “Team Trump Online!” with host Lara Trump, the Trump campaign’s senior adviser, and responded to Obama’s attacks against President Trump revealed in leaked audio of a Friday phone call. McConnell said Obama’s criticisms violated a tradition that former President George W. Bush had respected during the Obama administration.
“You know, generally former presidents just don’t do that. I remember President George W. Bush and his father went right through eight years of Democratic administrations after they left office and kept their mouths shut because they didn’t feel it was appropriate for former presidents to critique even the president of another party,” McConnell said.
