Hannity: McConnell Has Lived in the DC Swamp for 'Way Too Long'
Sean Hannity had some strong words for Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) after the Senate majority leader said that President Trump had "excessive expectations" about how quickly Congress could pass legislation.
"This is beyond unbelievable," Hannity said in his opening monologue last night, arguing that McConnell has lived in the Washington, D.C. "swamp" for "way too long."
He said that McConnell, not Trump, is the one who set the "excessive expectations" for what Congress could accomplish.
Senator Mitch McConnell said I had "excessive expectations," but I don't think so. After 7 years of hearing Repeal & Replace, why not done?

Can you believe that Mitch McConnell, who has screamed Repeal & Replace for 7 years, couldn't get it done. Must Repeal & Replace ObamaCare!

"You promised over and over and over again over seven years that you were going to repeal and replace ObamaCare," Hannity said. "You couldn't even get the 'skinny' repeal done."
He said that McConnell is just "whining like a ten year old" and blaming Trump for his own failures.
Hannity said it's time to drain the D.C. "sewer and swamp" and get behind Trump's agenda.
"Senator, if you can't get it done, get out of the way. Retire, leave Washington, go play golf, go fishing," Hannity said.
