Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell blasted Hillary Clinton and her legacy in his address to the Republican National Convention on Tuesday.
“I’m here to tell you Hillary Clinton will say anything, do anything, and be anything to get elected president, and we cannot allow it,” he said.
The Kentucky Republican’s words were applauded despite the fact that he has often been unfavorably seen by the party’s conservatives as part of the GOP establishment and Washington elite. At the opening of the RNC on Monday, McConnell’s name was booed when Chairman Reince Preibus presented him to be nominated as temporary chairman.
Nevertheless, the 74-year-old senator delivered a scathing monologue, shredding presumptive Democratic nominee Clinton and the scandals that have plagued her.
McConnell gave President Obama “credit” for at least being “upfront about his plans to move America to the far left,” despite the differences he has had with him in the past.
“Not Hillary,” he said. “She lied about her emails. She lied about her server. She lied about Benghazi. She even lied about sniper fire. Why even she lied about why her parents named her Hillary. So I ask you a simple question. At a moment when so many feel betrayed by their government, why in the world would Democrats put forward such a candidate?”
He gave several examples of Clinton’s flip-flopping and moving to the left on many issues.
“Friends, not since Baghdad Bob has there been a public figure with such a tortured relationship with the truth,” McConnell said.
“Fortunately, there’s a clear choice before us, and it’s not Hillary,” he added. “You know what the next four years will look like with Hillary, and you know that if Hillary is president, we’ll continue to slide, distracted by the scandals that follow the Clintons like flies.”
