    Harry Reid Attacks Republicans’ Patriotism For Enabling Donald Trump.

    PHILADELPHIA ― Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) delivered a characteristically scathing indictment of congressional Republicans in his speech at the Democratic National Convention on Wednesday night, once again blaming them for the rise of GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump.

    Reid, who has accused Republicans of sowing the political seeds for Trump’s demagoguery in the past, reserved his harshest criticism for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.).

    “I’ve never seen anything more craven than Mitch McConnell and what he has done to our democracy,” Reid said.

    “His Republican Party decided that the answer to hardworking Americans’ dreams is to slander our African-American president, stoke fear of Muslims, sow hatred of Latinos, insult Asians and, of course, wage war against women,” Reid added. “In other words, the only thing Republicans, like Mitch McConnell, have accomplished is setting the stage for a hateful con man, Donald Trump.”

    Reid went on to accuse Republicans of refusing to stand up to Trump once he launched his campaign.

    “They say they believe in ‘Country First.’ What a joke,” Reid said. “Republicans who won’t stand up to Trump believe in one thing and one thing only: ‘Party First.’”

    Reid’s remarks were received warmly in the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, attesting to his popularity among Democratic activists and insiders. By contrast, McConnell was booed when he spoke to the Republican National Convention in Cleveland last week.

    Harry Reid Attacks Republicans' Patriotism For Enabling Donald Trump

    Thank you, Harry. You're obviously a great American patriot. I thank you for your service.

    First, Democrats voted for him, the open poll results show that. Second, he's the last person to be commenting on who puts the country first and who doesn't. Third, he's basically calling everyone racist, but the President isn't "African-American", keeping out illegals isn't hatred of Latinos, it's enforcing the law his failure President ignores, and the "war on women" is a complete myth that was manufactured by the left to start with. This guy is a joke, and he should just fade into obscurity while he's behind. Lying, slanderous, baby holocaust supporter.

    The obstructionist, Reid, is a pathetic little shit, that like our president, does not believe in the rule of law. Everything he says is a lie.

    This childlike narrative the empty minded liberals keep repeating, that Trump hates certain groups of people, proves they are growing desperate. The latest poll that has Trump and Clinton in a tie is making them wet their beds.

    Democrats are making a political system where not being a Democrat is treason. Sure a politician can call themselves a republican, he just has to have all the principles of a democrat,

    That moldy old playbook is all they have, so they keep using it. We'll hear nothing from them this election cycle that we haven't heard for the last 30 years.

    They've got to push something...God knows you wouldn't want to run on Hillary's "qualities"! She brings a combination of incompetence and corruption that's almost unparalleled.
