WATCH: MSNBC Analyst Explains That McConnell Desperately Wants Trump Gone But He’s Stuck

Many Republicans running for office next year will want the endorsement of Donald Trump. Many others will want nothing to do with him. That was certainly the case in Virginia, where Glenn Youngkin pretended Trump didn’t exist on his way to winning the Governor’s race.

Mitch McConnell has always understood that Trump is holding the party back. But according to MSNBC’s Tim Miller, there really isn’t anything he can do about it.

Miller said during an appearance on the 11th Hour, “Those two Georgia Senate seats were lost because of Donald Trump’s actions between November and Jan. 5. In private, there’s no love lost. The problem is, the thing that Mitch McConnell cares about the very most — being majority leader, being able to appoint those judges — requires him to play ball with Donald Trump.”

Noting that if McConnell tried to get rid of Trump, the analyst continued, “He would turn into what (former House Speaker) Paul Ryan is, a board member at Fox. He’s stuck! If he wants to stay as leader, he has to continue to play this footsie with Donald Trump, while knowing on the inside that what Trump did was wrong, and while wishing he could just move on from Donald Trump.”
