WATCH: McConnell Roasts Tucker Carlson During Ukraine Aid Press Conference

During his long career in leadership, Mitch McConnell has mostly battled Democrats to push bills through. These days, though, McConnell has to compete with crazed Republicans in the House of Representatives, Russian-aligned Conservative media members and Donald Trump. 

While taking questions about the Ukraine funding bill that recently passed in the House, the Senate Minority Leader took shots at both Tucker Carlson and the 45th President. 

When asked why it took so long to pass the bill, McConnell responded, "Well, that’s a good question. You already know the answer. I think the demonization of Ukraine began by Tucker Carlson, who, in my opinion, ended up where he should have been all along, which is interviewing Vladimir Putin. And so he had an enormous audience which convinced a lot of rank-and-file Republicans that maybe this was a mistake."

The Kentucky Senator then took aim at Trump, saying: 

"I think that the former president [Trump] had sort of mixed views on it. We all felt the border was a complete disaster, myself included. And Chad, do you remember covering the phases we went through? First, it was an effort to make a law which requires you to deal with Democrats. And then a number of our members thought it wasn’t good enough. And then our nominee for president didn’t seem to want us to do anything at all. That took months to work our way through it. So we ended up doing the supplemental that was originally proposed, which dealt with not all problems. It didn’t solve the border problem, but certainly addressed the growing threats at the moment."
