Default Re: WH: 79 Cloture Votes Used Against Trump Nominees Compared to 17 in Past 4 Adminis

Yes, the media would go berserk if this happened to a Democrat President. But Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell deserves the lion's share of the blame not only for failing to deal with the Democrats childish obstructionism confirming appointments but for running the Senate like a 10 hour per week part time job. The ramifications of this laziness are apparent in the Senate resorting to another omnibus spending bill effectively funding Democrat priorities instead of acting on the regular order appropriation bills passed by the House.

President Trump needs to conduct a full scale campaign to shake Mitch McConnell out of his lassitude. It foolish to continue to trust him to do his job.
