President Trump Responds To Mitch McConnell’s Complaint About “excessive expectations”…

President Trump responded moments ago to the statement from Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell about President Trump holding “excessive expectations” of congress. McConnell’s remarks were made Monday and highlighted yesterday.

President Trump responds via twitter: “I don’t think so”…

“A Congress goes on for two years. 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.”

“Our new president, of course, has not been in this line of work before, and I think had excessive expectations about how quickly things happen in the Democratic process.”

~ Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell

    We all rant and rave about getting Trump supporting and America First agenda supporting candidates, and getting rid of the RINOs, but what would have even more impact, and sooner, is for an actual recall to happen.

    Yes, I’m familiar with the XVIIth Amendment, but I think I read that 19 states allow for a recall. This should be done in a state which has a very strongly Trump supporting Republican governor, so that whoever would then be appointed would be an improvement.

      There is no recall for those elected to federal office. Sates that have recall, have recall for STATE offices.
      Federal courts have handed down decisions that preclude recall of a Congressman.

        It’s a tough call, but we have to keep electing “good Republicans” and keep control, otherwise, we get gridlock with that bunch of crooks in D.C. As much as I hate the Rino’s, I believe I hate a Democrat more. We have some that have to go but they must be replaced with “much better and more solid Republicans,” not can kickers.

Three: Do a rally in KY and explain that MITCH is the problem and fire his wife. Open investigations on RYAN and McConnell and the kickbacks they receive and proscute them. Any more questions???? These are basic things if you are playing to WIN. Do you think Obama would do these if hen had problems or maybe just KILL them all which he has arranged.

      Every two years, all 435 Representatives and about 1/3 of the 100 Senators run for re-election in their primaries. There is only about a 17% turnout in republican primaries. The primaries are the ‘recall’ process. Every patriot needs to do what is necessary to remove incumbent, status quo RINOs in their primaries. Vote them out in the primaries.

        Oh, well said! I ALWAYS vote in primaries. I had a hard time getting pro-Trump new voters to understand the critical importance of the primaries. I used to tell them that they were surrendering their ability to choose a candidate for themselves, rather than the machine doing it for them. But the “recall” point is excellent, will also use that.

    This is the most pathetic statement out of McConnell’s mouth yet. We all know it’s the GOP that has failed the American people after years of dangling the carrot for our votes! And it came down to McCain voting for a few of them. And it’s so sad that things have gotten so bad for our citizens that even the GOP is worried about Medicaid! Personally, I think Portman and Collins are worried about funding their refugees, too.

        I still hope Sessions is like a duck, calm on the surface and paddling furiously below. It’s getting harder to keep that hope alive, but I’m pretty sure that there’s a lot more going on than we know. It’s maddening, like puzzle pieces half glimpsed through the fog. Sundance, us, some conservative media are trying truthfully to see the big picture, with varying degrees of success. I liken it to this: I’m a Pats fan, and if you’re not familiar, we have probably the most enigmatic coach in the history of the NFL. Every so often he does something that makes absolutely no sense whatsoever. Our best defensive player traded away for a pittance just before the season starts, stuff like that. Sometimes later it makes sense and you have that “aha!” moment. Sometimes you never do. But then we win the Superbowl. Right now Trump is making moves that make no sense to me, like tolerating McCabe and Mueller, appointing Wray, and endorsing… Luther Strange? McConnell Jr? Seriously WTF? And I’m pretty sure that Trump knows who’s leaking, and he has yet to my knowledge exploited that. I’m sort of resigned to faith. I know Trump is playing space chess for the fate of all of us but I can only see maybe an eighth of the board. I Pray he wins and thank God Hillary lost.

  8. First, the GOP couldn’t repeal Obamacare because they were in the minority and the Democrats had a supermajority. “But” they said, “give us the House, and we will DE-FUND Obamacare!” So we gave them the House.

    And they said, “Oh, so hard! The Senate won’t allow it! We’re only 1/2 of 1/3 of the government!” And then they fully funded Obamacare. “But,” they said, “give us the Senate and we will repeal Obamacare”. So we gave them the Senate.

    And they said, “Oh, so hard! We can pass the repeal, but President Obama will veto it!” And they fully funded Obamcare. “But,” they said, “give us the PRESIDENCY and then we’ll repeal it!” So we gave them the presidency.

    Now the GOP controlled the House, the Senate, and the Presidency. And they said “Oh, so hard! The Senate Parliamentarian won’t let us pass the repeal with 51 votes, we need 60!” And then they made a half-hearted effort to pass something they called a repeal (but wasn’t, really). And then they … FULLY FUNDED OBAMACARE.

    I see the pattern: If, in 2018, we give the GOP 60 votes in the Senate, I’m sure they’ll find some reason why they can’t repeal Obamacare with the House, a supermajority in the Senate, and the Presidency.

    Do you suppose they’ll ask for the Papacy?

      The biggest problem is that low voter turnouts in republican primaries allows the lying, incumbent, status quo, RINOs to be re-elected. There’s only about 17% voter turnout in republican primaries. It’s the do-nothing, no-show voters who are doing the damage.

    McConnell’s statement is just the latest signs I have seen in the last few days that I believe represent a good trend. I think these Congress creeps are going to be really sorry they took this nice, long vacation because they are getting an earful from their constituents. That would be US.

    First the head of the RNC says she is hearing clearly the voters want the Republicans to support the President.

    Then Paul Ryan (R) gets reamed at a public appearance by a guy angry that we gave them the House, gave them the Senate, finally went out and got them the WH and now these idiots STILL can’t get anything done?

    Sen Jeff Flake (R), Arizona, has polling numbers under 20% which is bad for someone up for reelection and PDJT’s approval numbers are really high in Arizona. Rut roh.

    Mitch McConnell (R) makes this statement that proves he has no understanding of the popular support out there for President Trump.

    Hannity had a talk radio host on his show last night. I forget the guy’s name. He has tied to North Carolina. He said he keeps hearing from voters in NC and they are “enraged” over their Senator Thom Tillis (R) who is cosponsoring legislation to prevent Trump from firing Mueller and who is specifically delaying the confirmation of Trump’s pick for a Homeland Security appointee for the Office of Immigration and something or another and won’t stop the hold up until Trump agrees to bring in loads and loads and loads more unskilled laborers for the landscaping and hospitality services.

    This is just from the last two or three days. We need to keep pushing, and press even harder. Send another couple of emails, make some more phone calls. Our voices are being heard. Let’s make it hot and uncomfortable for them.

    Hey Sundance, the picture you posted above that shows Trump saying “S*** Like This Is Why I Won” is absolutely true, but it’s sad you lowered yourself to foul language. You seem to be religious but are disrespecting both the Bible, which condemns foul language, and also our nation’s first president, George Washington. Here are 3 quotes from Washington about swearing:

    – “The foolish and wicked practice of profane cursing and swearing is a vice so mean and low that every person of sense and character detests and despises it.”

    – When it was reported to General Washington that the army was frequently indulging in swearing, he immediately sent out the following order: The general is sorry to be informed that the foolish and wicked practice of profane cursing and swearing – a vice little known heretofore in the American army – is growing into fashion. Let the men and officers reflect “that we can not hope for the blessing of heaven on our army if we insult it by our impiety and folly.”

    – “The General most earnestly requires, and expects, a due observance of those articles of war, established for the government of the army which forbid profane cursing, swearing and drunkenness; and in like manner requires and expects, of all officers, and soldiers, not engaged on actual duty, a punctual attendance on divine service, to implore the blessings of heaven upon the means used for our safety and defence.”

      For 7 years Republicans voted to dump Obamacare but it didn’t matter because Obama always vetoed it. Now with pen in hand Trump promises to pass Repeal and Replace Obamacare and suddenly The Republicans can’t bring themselves to vote against this most unpopular Healthcare Plan which is dying a slow death anyway. All they had to do if they were too lazy to bring this bill forward is to go back to a previous incarnation of this bill and hand that to Trump for his signature.

    Good for you Mr. President. McTurtle has nothing to offer the American people. The 7 year lie has come back to haunt them. The GOP lied to us pure and simple. They are disgusting and should be ashamed of themselves. They should be ashamed and held accountable in the primaries. But, those creatures are very well connected and funded. Trump is shining a light on the swamp monsters from both sides of the isle. Trump is showing the American people how we have been getting screwed by our own government. Mitch if you can’t get it done…move the hell out. You are paid a lot of tax dollars to perform. Republicans are the enemy of the American citizen. Democrats are the enemy of humanity. I’m not asking for a lot….. just pass ONE piece of legislation ……. JUST ONE for peats sake!!!! Mitch- you guys begged for all 3 branches and now it’s Trump’s fault? This is why we voted for Trump, we wanted the swamp of lazy self-serving politicians eliminated. Only in the service of government can one be so slow and lazy.
    Mr. President, don’t believe or take ANY advice from the Rino’s, they are all back stabbers and hate that you won! Trust NO ONE in the establishment! McConnell has cast shame on the Bluegrass state. “Underperforming”? You are a disgrace to this nation. No Mitch our president and we the people fully get how Washington works. It does not work. We are telling you 1) change your tune. 2) get behind this president 3) roll up your sleeves and make it work. Don’t under estimate the people. Trump built a multi billion dollar corporation based on “excessive expectations” from his employees. Mitch hasn’t built squat but has very low expectations. Mitch McConnell is the worst Majority Leader in recent US HISTORY. The U.S. Congress has stolen more of our liberty than we can ever hope to get back peacefully. Most of what is wrong with America today was made that way by Congress. Every damn one of them ran on repealing Obamacare. Every single one. Corrupt trash.
    Trump is SO right to have “excessive expectations”. Voters want McConnell and the Senate GOP to GET THEIR ASSES IN GEAR match Trump … we DON’T want Trump to slow himself down to match their tired, anemic butts. Damn straight we have “excessive expectations” … the country club of BS needs revamping with Trump Republicans replacing despicable RINO frauds. EARN your dang money, Senators! Trump is WORKING FOR FREE. That is what elections are for. Americans are waking up to its NOW or Never. The Senators work 165 days a year, not bad for $175,000 plus expenses and “perks”. Trumps right. We are sick of excuses from career politicians. I’m just sick of career politicians period. Only those on Cap Hill can make $200 grand a year doing nothing and end up millionaires in a couple of years. All on our dime. Great examples for hard working Americans and government employees. No wonder the Federal Government is so dysfunctional.
    Not that I’ve been asked, but my advice to President Trump would be to stop playing footsie with the RINO’s in congress and go for the jugular. McConnell, Ryan, McCain, et al, hate Trump more than the Dems hate him. I’m pretty sure the President can make life very, very, very uncomfortable for Senators and Reps via well thought out executive orders. McConnell is a swamp dweller. He likes soaking in the swamp tub. He didn’t think Trump would win; he expected the democrats to continue ruling. Trump is 100% right and McConnell is 100% full of garbage. He never intended to repeal Obamacare. He only intended to use the promise to repeal Obamacare to defraud contributors.
    Senator Chamber of Commerce-Big Government Mitch—-is still their after his expiration date—–He needs to get primary’d along with Paul RINO Ryan! How long would any employee last if they kept on making excuses such as “my boss set my goals to high?” Flush twice—The DC turd-Rino-leach infested swamp is full to capacity! MAGA The Republicans in Washington DC do not want to join The Man who made them all Winners. Congress should continue to blame everyone else. Hillary tried that tactic. The hatchet is coming for them too. The house and a third of the senate is about to feel the consequences of duplicity and incompetence. And they don’t even believe that. Come November 2018, the hammer comes down. I expect Trump will support and campaign for their primary opponents. If they want war, they’re gonna get it.
    Ryan won because Trump backed him. Trump’s gesture to McConnell’s wife really was rammed down his throat. The RINOs don’t want Trump in the Swamp and are working to get him out of office. Trump has done a lot considering those on both sides of the aisle are working together to stop anything positive he’s trying to do. They are backed by one of the most corrupt mainstream medias. Trump outworks the RINOs and the Democrats and they know it. The cowardly turtle, much like Lyin’ Ryan, are do-nothings. They have wasted a golden opportunity with total control of the 3 main branches. They should be called on the carpet for their lack of work. These guys have never had day jobs. They’ve been on the government tit for so long they can’t even remember what a day’s work is like.
    Establishment Republicans stand for nothing, fight for nothing, have no soul whatsoever, and are utterly worthless. They sit there with a majority and have no clue how to govern, or don’t want too. Why would anybody other than a liberal support these idiots? Yeah great – we fight to get a majority, and do nothing buy thwart their own President. Mitch, You and the rest of your RINO pack have done nothing you said you would do for so long I guess having to just stand up to get off your lazy ass would be expecting too much. The GOP is nothing but democrats in disguise. But we have to win the house to get things done..oh wait we have to win the senate to get things done..oh wait we need to win the white house to get things done…how about get off your lobbyist sucking arsss and get things done! cuz the door is that way next year!
    Mitch, things can happen in DC just as fast as they can in New York, if obstructionists like yourself would shut up and let the president do his job. Most of what President Trump has done in his life has been ahead of schedule and under budget. Did you realize that the Empire State Building was built in 410 days? That was before lifelong politicians like you, Mitch, strangled America with unnecessary and oppressive regulations, in other words, Mr Speaker, shut up and get out of the way. Really. These guys can’t do anything. We built the Transcontinental Railway 148 years ago across the Sierra Nevada, the Great Basin, the Rocky Mountains and the Great Plains in 3-4 years, with steam and horse and buggy technology. And they say we can’t build a Wall, which is nothing more than an Interstate tipped on edge. Trump is a DOER, McConnell is a typical, untrustworthy politician.

    McConnell needs to be fired by the voters. If I told my boss he had excessive expectations after not meeting a deliverable I would lose my job. Glad you jumped on this one Mr. President! He’s had 7 years to repeal and replace. Now he has the gall to make lame excuses for his and the GOP’s failure. UNBELIEVABLE! If Trump and his supporters have “excessive expectations”, then the Republican Party has “excessive donations” because the GOP raised millions of dollars on the promise that they were going to Repeal & Replace. Fraudulent cowards! These guys hate Trump more than they love America and its people. That’s why they don’t repeal it, they don’t want Trump going down in history with credit for fixing anything. All the GOP rhinos need voted out and you can bet I’m going to be voting against them.!! McConnell is a swamp creature along with McCain, Ryan, Graham, Collins and so many others. They better realize that while Americans aren’t voting for Democrats next time around, we also aren’t voting for swamp creatures. Excessive expectations!? LOL! Don’t you mean work!! Trump is a doer not a watcher. Mitch, if you aren’t up for the task, step aside and let someone else do it.

    I do hope the people of Kentucky and the other 49 states aren’t buying the crap he’s selling. We need new leadership! better yet a new Donald J. Trump party that will recruit Senators and Congressmen with term limits that will only serve the people, and will not accept funds from donors… Mitch is an establishment guy that cannot afford to have Trump succeed. If Trump does than Washington will be exposed as nothing but a honey pot for the very powerful. The Senate is a bunch of lazy jokers who are more concerned with Their re-elections than the needs of the American People, let Them pay for their own insurance. We Need Term Limits badly… McConnell promised back in December 2016 that on Jan 3rd they would pass the repeal – the one they had already passed and was vetoed by OdamaCare. McConnell is a liar and a con man
    “Excessive expectations”, really? After all President Trump, it has only been ‘7’ years . What right have you to expect ‘congress’ to do anything in such a short time?! You will probably have served 8 years in office before it it even comes up for another vote. I stand firmly behind my belief, Re-Elect No-One! Mc Connell sat on his hands for 7 years and did nothing along with Ryan and Bainer..they are all bs ,,,we want action not excuses ..7 years you boys and girls had to plan to come up with something and you FAILED. McConnell and Ryan should be fired..Not doing their job for the American people…They’ve had plenty of time to get this done.
    Mr. President, I hope you openly call for new senate leadership. He had 7.5 years to prepare…and failed as MAJORITY Leader of the Senate on Healthcare. With him, and his leadership team, in place, you’re in for more real problems. We cannot afford the senate operating on McConnell Time. He’s performing and behaving like a career bureaucrat. Because after grandstanding for seven yrs, when push came to shove, they backed their pocketbooks instead of their statements and their President. They have no principles except those that pad their bank accounts, and they’re not fooling us with their flatteries and empty threats.
    No, the president did not have excessive expectations. Remember that McConnell said that on day one if he was reelected he would rip Obamacare out root and branch; McCain said a similar thing. I wonder what happened to prevent that promise from being kept. The president is correct on questioning why the Republican congress did not get this accomplished after promising to for 7 years. Even his own party is fighting the duly elected president every step of the way, and frankly we the people are sick and tired of these weaklings and liars not keeping their promises. Was it really “excessive expectations” to think that given all three branches of government, they might actually be able to accomplish something…..ANYTHING! Must be that the “swamp” is headquartered in the Senate and the House, eh?
    Time to get those in Washington to do there job instead of just talking about it! I have been a political junkie for well over 35 years and have never seen so many excuses, stalling, and party infighting…worse than a bunch of school children! And on top of that, they sit back and critique your job when they are not doing theirs. This is why we need term limits! How many times did they send a repeal bill to Obama knowing he wouldn’t sign it? Now this RHINO McConnell says expectations were too high? What a crock!
    Politicians are elected on nothing but their speeches. That’s why they fail on the promises in those speeches and that’s why Mr Trump is now President Trump. Thank you President Trump for working so hard for us and for doing a good job. It is pretty ridiculous that they didn’t have something day 1! Ridiculous!! I would be FIRED if I worked like That! Get it together! The GOP campaigned for 7 years on Repeal and Replace ObanaCare and when it came time to finally cash their check it bounced. They “kited” us for 7 years without putting a plan together. Now, We the People, will put a plan together to systematically fire the Democrats and then fire the RINOS and then fire any remaining “Establishment” GOP member until we have transfused all the blood in D.C. with new blood of Patriots who will work period, for the People. I would think that in seven years, they would have had a repeal bill on the ACA drafted by 11/9/16 and ready for you to sign on 1/20/17. Listening to Mitch McConnell, one gets the impression that your expectations were unreasonable. I don’t see how they were given the fact that we’ve heard seven years of excuses from them.
    The most upsetting thing is, that the reason you can’t get things done, is because the republicans want you to fail just as much as the democrats do, if you succeed in what you want to do, everyone’s job would eventually be in jeopardy, no one will have a career in politics, and no politician wants that, if you could find a way around that issue you could get things done. The RINOS…that sleep in the same bed with Dems…never had any intentions to Repeal and Replace…they didn’t do anything cause they were 99.9% sure Hilary will get in…That’s the real reason..they even voted for her…Despicable RINOS ! Mitch McConnell is a millionaire so he can afford any healthcare. Apparently, he is unaware that people on the street have blown through their life savings paying for O’care.

      Not to worry The American People aren’t buying this. We would like a Healthcare Plan that we can afford. The Republican Congress admits that this was Job One when Trump as inaugurated and yet they suddenly haven’t the energy or interest to make it happen.

    Since I became of legal age to vote, I have watched 10 presidents come and go in the WH, and countless career politicians vote themselves increases in salaries, benefits and retirement nest-eggs, but based on the most recent statement by “Mr. Speaker”, I have tried and tried to remember someone in leadership in politics (Dems or GOP) who would have even dreamt of saying something as ridiculous, insane and career-killing as this bloated, uni-party goofball.

    But, what he has just said will go unchallenged by the media, his elite club members in the ‘Hey, just try to vote me out’ uni-party, and the majority of his Kentucky-ites feeding at the McConnell Pork-Belly Trough.

    I was much too young to remember the everyday happenings of the Harry Truman presidency, but I do recall in the latter years, there was a large (mostly newspaper) media contingency who definitely did NOT like this guy. And for his time, his attitude was perfect. He swore (YES – even in the White House – and called the press all kinds of derogatory yet truthful names!) He purposefully had his daughter play the piano (proficiently off-key) just to tick off his haters, and he acted in many ways like some out-of-place conservative in Democratic clothing.

    But, no one would have ever dreamt of saying that anybody in the private sector, or the grocery clerk, plumber, school teacher, or gas station attendant should just pipe-down because, “Do not try this at home. Only WE know how to do this!”

    Can you imagine the SIZE of this guy’s ego!?! McConnell is a complete, arrogant, incompetent blow-hard!

    He says Trump, a multi-billionaire who has accomplished more in his life (including raising a smart, disciplined family) than this career political criminal could ever imagine, has his expectation level much too high, while millions of families and individuals CANNOT AFFORD the bankrupt disaster of Barak Hussein Barry Soetoro Socialism Sub-Health Care Act!

    I do believe during Truman’s, Eisenhower’s, Kennedy’s (probably not Johnson’s) era, McConnell would have had to fashion a mask to cover the world’s biggest jowls and hide his face in public, or he would have been deluged with tomatoes at his local supermarket. (Well, he probably hasn’t bought his own groceries since he was jowl-less).

    Does he and his clone in the House think they are so powerful they can say and do anything without retribution!?!

    They really do think we are idiots!

    To (mis)quote the movie, Mr. Madison: “Mr. McConnell, what you just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response, were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.”
