They’d get rid of this fuck, McConnell who needs to realize Trump’s approval rating is 4x that of Congress’. And how is it unrealistic to expect these worthless fucks to do their jobs?

Speaking at a Rotary Club gathering in Kentucky on Monday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell vented about how President Donald Trump’s lack of political experience has led to him setting “excessive expectations” for legislative priorities.

McConnell, R-Ky., told the group in Florence that he found it “extremely irritating” that Congress has earned the reputation of not accomplishing anything.

“Part of the reason I think that the storyline is that we haven’t done much is because, in part, the president and others have set these early timelines about things need to be done by a certain point,” said McConnell, a Republican and the state’s senior senator.

Trump, a political newcomer, as McConnell noted, has a habit of declaring progress on major priorities that do not necessarily reflect the reality of lawmaking.

For example, as the House was in the midst of negotiations about its Obamacare replacement bill in February, Trump announced that Congress was in the “final stages” of its bill and said it would be ready for “submitting” in March. While the House bill was unveiled in March, that chamber didn’t vote on it until May, and health care votes continued until the end of July.

That sort of disconnect has led to Trump’s expressing disappointment when bills — chief among them health care reform — fail to end up on his desk, even though, as with health care, the political reality indicated all along how difficult it was going to be to pass legislation.

“Our new president, of course, has not been in this line of work before. And I think he had excessive expectations about how quickly things happen in the democratic process,” McConnell told the group. “So part of the reason I think people feel we’re underperforming is because too many artificial deadlines — unrelated to the reality of the complexity of legislating — may not have been fully understood.”

He urged the audience to judge this Congress “when it finishes,” or after the 115th Congress, which convened on Jan. 3, 2017, completes its two-year session. For comparison, he noted that President Barack Obama did not sign his signature Affordable Care Act into law until March of 2010, more than a year after taking office.

The White House has not yet responded to ABC News’ request for comment.

    We finally have a president who is holding Congressional Republicans to their campaign promises and McConnell doesn’t like it. McConnell needs to go.

    I can’t figure out why Trump put McConnell’s wife in the cabinet when McConnell is so worthless. He has to be playing the long game, so we’ll have to sit and watch.

    I do not think that Trump’s approval ratings are as bad these liberal media polls
    show them to be. We are getting this information from the same people who
    projected Felonia von Pantsuits odds of winning the election at 90 percent.

    At the same time Trump’s ratings are falling, the issue of illegal immigration
    and sanctuary cities are polling 60 to 80 percent depending on the state.
    Shit, even here in Mexifornia, 72 percent of voters are opposed to sanctuary
    cities. Even if Trump’s stepped up immigration arrests are merely a token
    effort, it is having an effect because border crossings are down by 75 percent.
    If they know you are not kidding, it is enough, just like the Iranians releasing the
    hostages on the day Reagan was sworn in. Back when Californias Prop 187
    was on the ballot, thousands of illegals went back home.

    On the economy and jobs, we have seen a million new jobs since he was elected,
    the stock market is soaring, 16 job killing regulations are tossed into the shit-can
    for every new regulation enacted, the union workers in the coal and Rust Belt
    states flipped their states from blue to red, and just yesterday, a federal judge
    overturned one of Barrack Obonzo’s most destructive EPA regulations.

    Every poll I have seen indicates an oversampling of Democrats by 25 to 50
    percent. I think that Trump is far more popular with the average American
    these polls indicate. He is not a stupid man, but he is a shrewd businessman
    and a world class negotiator. I have said this before, but the more the
    rabid Dobermans attack him, the stronger he will become!

    While all this feces is being thrown at him, he is the political version of Fabius
    Maximus, draining the swamp one teacup at a time. This guy works regular
    18 hours a day, just like any great CEO. What he does not know, he learns.
    Between his firings, and forced resignations and retirements, he is clearing
    out the deadwood at the EPA, State Department, VA, and White House staff.

    Baby You Ain’t Seen Nothin Yet:
