71 Year Old Senator Mocks Age Of 2016 Democratic Field
The Democratic Party’s 2016 presidential prospects look like a “rerun of the Golden Girls,” Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell jabbed on Friday.
“Finally, don’t tell me that Democrats are the party of the future when their presidential ticket for 2016 is shaping up to look like a rerun of the ‘Golden Girls,'” McConnell said in his morning address to CPAC, drawing laughter and applause.
“We’ve got Rand Paul, we’ve got Marco Rubio, we’ve got Paul Ryan and a slew of smart, young and energetic governors,” McConnell continued, generating more cheers. “And the other guys? They’ve got Hillary and Joe Biden. So don’t tell me, folks. Don’t tell me.”
Back in the 80’s, Republicans were attacking Democrats who said similar things about Ronald Reagan.
