John David Dyche, Mitch McConnell’s hand-picked biographer, just took a public dig at the Senate Majority Leader on Twitter.
First, McConnell praised Trump’s healthcare vision via Twitter:

Dyche did not mince words when he fired back:
Proud to stand with him although that very day a House committee & FBI/NSA directors confirmed him as a liar about wiretaps, Obama & Britain https://t.co/bTtvUolam5

Dyche hit the nail on the head. To make matters worse, McConnell’s tweet comes on the heels of a Pew Research Center poll showing that the majority of Americans approve of Obamacare.
A note to McConnell’s PR team: perhaps avoid the phrase “proud to stand with @POTUS” on what was called the “worst day” of Trump’s presidency.
Trump has always been a polarizing figure, but more and more Republicans have been crossing the aisle in opposition to his politically toxic presidency. However, when the hand-picked biographer for a deep-red Kentucky senator speaks out against Trump’s nefarious activities, it’s time to jump ship.
Well played, Dyche.
