Ex-Mayor Of Detroit Reins Hell On Mitch McConnell For Destroying US Democracy
During a panel discussion on CNN, Dennis Archer, the former mayor of Detroit, blasted Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for the damage he’s doing to the country and called out the Democratic presidential candidates who appeared in the two debates in his city for ignoring this fact.
Speaking with hosts John Berman and Alisyn Camerota, Dennis Archer — who also served on the Michigan Supreme Court — said that there should have been less discussion about former President Barack Obama — and more on Mitch.
“I was surprised last night that a number of the candidates on that stage did not bother to say what Senate Majority Leader McConnell has suppressed coming out of the United States Senate,” Archer exclaimed. “You’re talking about, for example, infrastructure. Our newly elected governor [Democrat Gretchen Whitmer] is outstanding, she’s doing a great job — fix the damn roads was her message.”
“All across the United States, if there was not a meeting before the inauguration of President Obama where Mitch McConnell made it clear Obama would be a one-term president, you think about all the programs that could have been implemented?” he continued. “But he stopped them. Right now he’s got a number of issues before him in the United States Senate and they blocked them!”
“What that says to me, if we want help, if we want change, we got to make change across the board,” he told the hosts. “We want somebody who’s got the wisdom, the knowledge, and experience to make sure that happens. and we also have to relieve Mr. McConnell of his job.”
