(Gateway Pundit) – Never underestimate Cocaine Mitch.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said on Tuesday that he will be setting up a vote on Ocasio-Cortez’s insanely radical Green New Deal.
There is no way Ocasio-Cortez’s radical plan will pass the Senate because it needs 60 votes, but Mitch McConnell is forcing Democrats, many of whom are running for president in 2020, to go on the record about something as radical as eliminating airplane travel — this vote would give the Republicans great fodder for the 2020 presidential election cycle.
“I’ve noted with great interest the Green New Deal. And we’re going to be voting on that in the Senate. Give everybody an opportunity to go on record and see how they feel about the Green New Deal,” McConnell told reporters on Tuesday.
Notice McConnell’s green tie and smirk as he trolls Senate Democrats on the radical Green New Deal.

Democrat darling Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez released information on the Democrat Party’s radical and lunatic Green New Deal last Thursday.
It was a complete disaster.
The Green New Deal is a Communist scam that included guaranteed income for Americans ‘unwilling to work.’
The 14-page Commie wishlist also included a plan to transition to all electric cars and completely eliminate airplane travel — because trains over the ocean is a genius idea!
The Democrats also want to get rid of cow flatulence — which means all cows would be eliminated.
Within hours, the Green New Deal was yanked from Ocasio-Cortez’s webpage.
President Trump mocked the Democrat-Green-New-Deal-clown-show last Saturday evening, calling the resolution, “Brilliant.”
I think it is very important for the Democrats to press forward with their Green New Deal. It would be great for the so-called “Carbon Footprint” to permanently eliminate all Planes, Cars, Cows, Oil, Gas & the Military – even if no other country would do the same. Brilliant!

Senator McConnell’s move to force a vote on Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal is just glorious — thank you, Mitch!
