Senate Majority Mitch McConnell begged voters to hold the Senate in GOP hands, telling Republican National Convention viewers that the stakes were never higher. ‘
He said that if Washington, DC, were to get two Liberal senators, ‘we can not reverse the damage they have done’, with the Democrats already in control of the House and the election looking like that it passed the Senate to the Democrats as well.
McConnell’s address was pre-recorded from Louisville, Kentucky and contained a litany of reasons that Republicans should be afraid of Democratic rule, including that the party would limit ‘how many burgers you can eat.’

Under McConnell’s concerns: He accused Democrats of restricting ‘how many burgers you can eat’
‘Today’s Democratic Party does not want to improve life for Central America. They prefer that we all remain silent in the land of the remnants and let them decide how we should live our lives, ‘McConnell said, pointing out in his opening speech that he was the only senator as house leader not from New York or California.
That includes the Chamber Leader of his own party, Rep. Kevin McCarthy of California.
“This election is incredibly consistent for Central America,” McConnell said.
Democrats, he claimed, wanted to ‘tell you when you can go to work’ and ‘when your kids can go to school,’ likely references to shutdown orders from Democratic administrators in this year’s coronavirus pandemic.
“They want to tax your job out of existence, and then send you a government check for unemployment,” he continued.
When he delivered the ‘hamburger’ line, he gave it a grin.
He also beat Democrats to ‘defold the police’, which some have asked of the party’s ultra-left, but is mostly a call from ‘Black Lives Matter’ activists. Democratic nominee Joe Biden has said he opposes deflecting the police.
“They want free health care for illegal immigrants, yet they offer no protection at all to unborn Americans,” he said.
He then turned to the threat of Washington, DC, where its more than 700,000 residents have no vote in Congress.
“And they want to codify all of this by making the swamp itself – Washington, DC – America’s 51st state,” he said. “With two more Liberal senators, we can not undo the damage they have done.”
The House of Representatives passed a DC bill in June, but the McConnell-led Senate will not pass it.
“Now you understand why Democrats have spent a whole week telling us who Joe Biden is – not what he intends to do,” McConnell said.
McConnell, who remained outside Washington for the address of President Donald Trump’s White House Thursday night, also spoke about the president.
“President Trump knows he inherited the first generation of Americans who can not promise their children a better life than their own,” McConnell said. ‘He has made it his mission of this administration to change that. I know this because I work alongside him every day. ‘
He concluded his remarks by asking Americans to support “Republican Senate candidates across the country.”
“And re-elect my friend, President Donald Trump,” McConnell said.
