Former President Trump appeared on Maria Baritomo’s show Wednesday to rail against Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY). Trump says with all the problems going on, McConnell “should be ashamed of himself.”
“They were dying,” Trump said of the GOP. “They’re dying at the border, they’re dying in Afghanistan, they are dying all over the place.”
Most of all, Trump was disappointed with the recent infrastructure bill. “Only 11% goes to infrastructure. It’s not an infrastructure plan, it’s a Green New Deal plan,” Trump said. “And because they signed that, it’s going to be easy to get the real beauty, the one they really want, the $3.5 trillion [budget], it’s going to be much easier to get that because they signed this deal.”
As a result of these failures, Trump pointed the finger at the minority leader. “Mitch McConnell should be ashamed of himself,” Trump said. “He is a stupid man, and I’ve said it for a long time. They gave Biden victory.”
Then, Trump repeated an argument he’s made before. “Mitch McConnell should be overthrown and — and overthrown fast, because these senators, he is leading them down a bad path.”

Kamala Harris Loses Two More Staffers
Two more staffers are reportedly leaving their jobs in Vice President Kamala Harris’ office, according to the Washington Post. The news comes just after Harris’ chief spokeswoman, Symone Sanders, announced her departure.
“Symone Sanders, the senior adviser and chief spokesperson for Vice President Kamala Harris, is expected to leave the White House at the end of the year, according to five administration officials familiar with the matter,” Politico reported.
In addition to Sanders, “Peter Velz, director of press operations, and Vince Evans, deputy director of the Office of Public Engagement and Intergovernmental Affairs in the vice president’s office, have also told others in the vice president’s office that they are leaving, according to two administration officials,” the Washington Post reported.
Earlier this week, Sanders officially announced her departure in a note to the Vice President’s team.
“I’m so grateful to the VP for her vote of confidence from the very beginning and the opportunity to see what can be unburdened by what has been. I’m grateful for [Harris chief of staff] Tina [Flournoy] and her leadership and her confidence as well,” Sanders wrote. “Every day, I arrived to the White House complex knowing our work made a tangible difference for Americans. I am immensely grateful and will miss working for her and with all of you.”
The news comes just weeks after Harris’ communications director Ashley Etienne filed her resignation.
“Ashley is a valued member of the vice president’s team, who has worked tirelessly to advance the goals of this administration,” a White House official stated. “She is leaving the office in December to pursue other opportunities.”
“Harris’ office has been beset by disorder, bad press, and, at times, internal frictions,” Politico reported, adding, “ … in recent weeks, chatter has grown increasingly loud that Harris wasn’t positioned well to be Biden’s heir apparent in 2028 or, if he opts not to run again, in 2024.”
