After 34 years in Congress, Harry Reid is finally leaving Washington.
Reid spent his political career opposing conservative principles and teaming up with Nancy Pelosi to pass crippling legislation such as Obamacare.
And while Reid claims he is retiring because his race would have “taken money away from other key races”, it’s clear Reid is leaving because he sees the writing on the wall.
As Breitbart reported earlier this year, although no one saw Trump surging to be America’s next President, the Democrats knew they were in trouble.
“But the real reason Reid is retiring may have nothing to do with any of these excuses and everything to do with his concerns that a possible Republican Presidential victory in 2016 would lead to the appointment of a Republican Attorney General in January 2017.”
As Harry Reid’s time in the Senate comes to a close, he’s not bowing out humbly and accepting defeat with grace.
In fact, in typical Harry Reid style, he’s exiting the Senate and blaming everyone else around him for Hillary’s crushing loss.
Instead of admitting his failed leadership and the demise of the Democratic Party, Reid blamed Trump’s surge to victory on FBI Director Comey and the Koch brothers.
And with Trump set to take office, Reid still refuses to accept the fact the Democrats are in trouble.
“They have Trump, I understand that. But I don’t think the Democratic Party is in that big of trouble,” Reid said in a half-hour interview with Politico on Wednesday, one day before he’ll deliver his farewell address. “I mean, if Comey kept his mouth shut, we would have picked up a couple more Senate seats and we probably would have elected Hillary.”
Reid’s out of touch remarks show he still refuses to admit Hillary’s corruption with regards to sending and receiving classified emails from a private server, which promoted the FBI investigation to begin with.
Instead, Reid believes Hillary is above the law, and should have been elected President regardless of her criminal past.
But the American people spoke loud and clear on Election Day, and elected Trump to be America’s next Commander in Chief.
It’s clear the American people are fed up with political insiders who think they are above the law.
Harry Reid still doesn’t understand his ways aren’t working and were blatantly rejected on Election Night.
And now, with Republicans controlling the White House and both chambers of Congress, anything can happen.
Many voters, concerned with the future balance of the Supreme Court, voted for Trump because he pledged to appoint pro-life and conservative justices.
Reid warned his Party to not let Trump get “wacky” Supreme Court nominees through.
“Though the filibuster is Democrats’ best weapon against Trump, Reid said it would be a “mistake” for his party to reflexively oppose whatever Trump proposes. But the outgoing minority leader also wants Democrats to stand firm for their core principles, urging lawmakers to do “everything in their power” to block “wacky” Supreme Court nominees and to not be “complicit” in supporting GOP priorities like tax cuts for the rich and repealing Obamacare.”
However, Reid’s out of touch instructions show he still doesn’t get it.
