McConnell Video Ridicules Dems Who Supported Green New Deal Until They Voted ‘Present’ On It

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell shared a video on Twitter mocking the Democrats who voiced their support for the Green New Deal, then voted ‘present’ on it.

Well played Mitch McConnell. There was not one single vote for the Green New Deal. The Democrat’s pulled an Obama and voted “present” on their own bill. I guess AOC isn’t the boss anymore.

When they voted “present” I guess they didn’t realize it was a present in the form of a gift to the Republican party in 2020.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell released a video mocking Democratic senators for voting “present” on the Green New Deal.

McConnell, R-Ky., brought up the measure a vote on Tuesday, forcing members to go on record to either support or oppose the resolution.

Although several lawmakers, including 2020 Democratic candidates, have publicly voiced their support for the nonbinding resolution, not one voted in favor of it. Instead, 43 senators voted “present.”

The video blasted out by McConnell features Democratic Sens. Jeff Merkley of Oregon, Cory Booker of New Jersey, Kamala Harris of California, Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota, and Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, as well as independent Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, among others, saying they would support, and vote “yes,” to the Green New Deal.

The video displays a photo of each lawmaker along with the text “voted present” after playing sound bites of he or she voicing support for the measure. More

Instead of asking if Democrats are for the green deal, just ask them if they’re against it! Unless the answer is a resounding no, they are indeed supporting it. Any other answer than no is nothing more than a political beard to help them get elected.
