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.
