Mitch McConnell got testy with Axios reporter Jonathan Swan during a live sit-down interview yesterday that got real awkward real fast.Things started out friendly-ish with Swan asking McConnell, who has served in the Senate since 1985, about his “ruthless style of politics.”“I didn’t realize I was known for playing ruthless,” he joked. “My wife thinks I’m a really nice guy.
My kids like me. I got a lot of friends. I’m shocked to hear such a comment.”McConnell’s wife, Elaine Chao, served as Donald Trump‘s transportation secretary from 2017 to 2021.
In March 2021, the Department of Transportation’s inspector general released a report that alleged she committed four kinds of ethics violations during her tenure, including using her staff and her position of power to call in personal favors.Related: Elaine Chao used taxpayer resources to do her Christmas shopping, damning report findsMcConnell’s remarks initially drew chuckles from the audience, but the interview took a far less jovial turn moments later when Swan teased him about how he could only list four people who actually liked him and then questioned his “moral red lines.”“I’m perfectly comfortable with the way that I have conducted my political career,” McConnell, growing increasingly more serious, said. “I’m very comfortable with my moral red line.”Swan then pressed McConnell on how he could go from publicly condemning Donald Trump for his role in the January 6 insurrection on the U.S.
