GOP lawmaker promises to make Biden a 'one-half-term president'
A top-ranking Republican lawmaker has left many social media users scratching their heads after he shared his intentions for President Joe Biden's time in office.
According to NBC News, Rep. John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) appeared at an event hosted by the Republican think tank, Ripon Society.
"Mitch McConnell's come under a lot of criticism for saying, at one point, he wanted to make sure that Barack Obama was a one-term president," Barrasso said.
He later added, "I want to make Joe Biden a one-half-term president. And I want to do that by making sure they no longer have House, Senate, White House."
Barrasso's remarks come as McConnell, the Senate minority leader, continues to make his intentions clear: he will do everything in his power to obstruct the Democratic agenda. Weeks prior to Barrasso's latest comments, McConnell confirmed he is "100 percent" focused on blocking the Biden administration.
"We're confronted with severe challenges from a new administration and a narrow majority of Democrats in the House and a 50-50 Senate to turn America into a socialist country, and that's 100 percent of my focus," McConnell said at the time.
