Donald Trump made this boast to an almost entirely maskless, shoulder-to-shoulder rally crowd in Tampa, Florida on Thursday:

If I can get better, anybody can get better.

Let that boast sink in.

Think of the hundreds of thousands who have died under this president’s watch – then read that boast again.

“Everybody wants to focus on the presidential race,” Democratic Senate hopeful Amy McGrath told about 50 supporters in Paducah on Friday afternoon. “But I’ll tell you what, the statement the world needs from us is to get rid of Mitch McConnell.”

The Senate majority leader has beaten six straight Democrats, including Walter D. Huddleston, a two-term incumbent, in 1984.

Amy McGrath is grateful for "tremendous" union support.

"I would like to think it's because of me," she chuckled. "But to be honest, I think a lot of it is because of Mitch McConnell."

Anyway, McGrath, the Democrat who wants the senator's job, is glad to have the Kentucky State AFL-CIO's unanimous endorsement.

Hear the snickering?

Turn around. See who's making fun of you.

It’s Donald Trump and Mitch McConnell. They're counting on you to vote for them on the social issues. 

Trump, McConnell and the rest of GOP union-busting crowd are again trolling for union votes with the same old social issues sucker bait.

Their idea is to dupe working-class voters by hiding the GOP’s real agenda: making rich people like themselves richer and wiping out unions.
