Political commentator and MSNBC host, Joy Reid, took to Twitter to lay down some hard truths for Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell. She wanted him to know we've all seen how this plays out on the other side and the horizon isn't bright.

Poor Mitch, it seems with every passing Presidential tweet team McConnell continues to hemorrhage support. 

Heading into the 2018 elections, only one Republican Senate candidate nationwide has pledged to back Mitch McConnell as majority leader. Most Republicans are facing stiff competition in the next round of primaries so they need to strategize carefully.

Even though some support his political savvy and fundraising abilities, they realize they cannot afford to ignore his sinking approval ratings both with Republicans and the wider electorate.

It can be lonely at the top.

Several leading candidates are outright spurning him while others are dodging questions about his leadership or threatening to oppose him if the GOP Congress doesn't finally deliver on the party's legislative priorities, and soon.

Ms. Reid points out how difficult it is to feel sorry for Mitch as he did all of the same actions for the 8 years Obama was in office, and did all he could to turn Nancy Pelosi into her party's scapegoat. 

Karma is a bitter pill to swallow.

Twitter shared some thoughts with Joy as well. 















It's all about simple truths.

Now nothing is set in stone and we all know ANYTHING is possible nowadays but McConnell’s approval ratings have tanked over the past year and some on the Hill have referred to him as "toxic."

2018 isn't far. Just to be sure Mitch may want to spruce at the ole resume.
