McConnell: It’s “Pretty Obvious” Trump Doesn’t Know Shit About Shit

No one, not even his own party or voters, necessarily cares what Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says about anything, but Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump is probably going to care about this.

McConnell spoke to Bloomberg and conceded that it's "pretty obvious [Trump] doesn't know a lot about the issues." This is why, McConnell says, Trump must pick a running mate who actually knows something.

“He needs someone highly experienced and very knowledgeable because it's pretty obvious he doesn't know a lot about the issues,” McConnell said. “You see that in the debates in which he's participated. It's why I have argued to him publicly and privately that he ought to use a script more often—there is nothing wrong with having prepared texts.”

The obvious problem here is that no one with the knowledge or experience needed to be president or vice president is going to agree to be Trump's seat-mate on the Titanic. It's far more likely that Trump will pick someone just as ignorant as he is and Trump will throw them to the wolves if only to take the pressure off himself.

Even though Majority Leader McConnell openly concedes that Trump doesn't know a damn thing, McConnell says he's still "comfortable" with Trump as their nominee.

I'd advise voters to listen to McConnell, at least in this one isolated case, and vote for the presidential nominee with decades of experience. It ain't Donald.

    Unless you’re Obama, right Mitch? ::teleprompter::

    I believe what Mitch McConnell is doing there is whistling past the graveyard.

    One thing is for sure. With The Trump Monster as ( oh, I shudder) ‘celebrity president’ you wouldn’t be able to let him out of the country. Can you imagine him at Hiroshima? Dear God, just with his offensive, stupid mouth he might start another war.

      I’ll see your Hiroshima, and raise you an Auschwitz. And sadly yes I can very easily imagine. It scares the hell out of me.

        You know, he seems like a rich person who has always been treated as if everything he says is brilliant and wonderful because….$$$$$$$.

          Yeah. It’s like how a friend of mine puts it. This is what happens when a person is never told “No.
