McConnell: Biden ‘got it wrong again’ when he claimed GOP couldn’t say ‘what they were for’
President Biden’s repeated assertion that Republicans cannot explain “what they are for” to the American people prompted a pushback Thursday night from Republican Senate Leader Mitch McConnell.

The GOP has voiced what the party sees as the most pressing issues facing the country, McConnell insisted during an appearance on Fox News.

“My good friend the president got it wrong again,” McConnell told “Special Report” anchor Bret Baier.

“I helped him pass a bipartisan bill on infrastructure, I supported a bill in the Senate to deal with China and the shortage of computer chips,” recalled the Republican from Kentucky.

“If the president starts acting like a moderate like he campaigned, we can do business. The reason we haven’t spoken recently this year is because he’s embraced Bernie Sanders’ prescription for the America. He did it even though he didn’t get a mandate for him, a 50-50 Senate and a majority of a few seats in the House, and they couldn’t get him through.” CLICK HERE TO LEARN MORE ABOUT OUR TOP STORY.

USA Swimming issues transgender policy statement amid Lia Thomas controversy
USA Swimming, the sport’s national governing body that oversees more than 360,000 members, released a statement on Thursday about its policy regarding transgender athletes that sought to strike a balance between inclusivity and “competitive fairness.”

The politics have become a center of attention amid controversy surrounding Penn’s Lia Thomas, a transgender athlete who began breaking Ivy League records since she began competing as a woman.

USA Swimming’s statement was posted on Instagram and the organization said it was doing its best “to learn and educate us on the proper balance in this space.”

The organization said it already has inclusion procedures in place that allow non-elite athletes to compete in a category that matches their gender identity. CLICK HERE TO FIND OUT MORE.

A FEW SEPARATE WORDS

Sean Hannity claimed Thursday night “Hannity” monologue that neither President Biden nor Vice President Kamala Harris was up to the jobs they were elected to in 2020 – and America could end up paying a heavy price.

“Tonight, it’s clear that we have a president and a vice president — they’re not up to the job,” Hannity said. “But I know it and you know it. The enemies of America, they also see everything we see, and unfortunately tonight, as a result, the world and our country [are] less secure and… less secure.
