Twitter Blasts Trump For Mocking McConnell’s Vacation, While He’s ALSO on Vacation
Mitch, get back to work and put Repeal & Replace, Tax Reform & Cuts and a great Infrastructure Bill on my desk for signing. You can do it!

President Donald Trump continued his trend of calling out major GOP elected officials on Twitter Thursday with yet another tweet about GOP Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.
Trump called on McConnell to work on the Republican’s moribund health care bill . This is not the first time Trump has sassed McConnell on Twitter to get moving with health care. Just yesterday Trump asked him “why not done” after seven years of trying to repeal and replace. At least this time Trump tried to be a little more encouraging, telling him, “You can do it!”
The Twitterverse did not take kindly to Trump’s tweet, roasting the president by pointing out that he is also on vacation — a 17-day jaunt to his golf course in Bedminster, New Jersey.
Tough love! https://t.co/FBjuYDrOSy

A powerful con man accusing another powerful con man of laziness from a golf course b/c he won't take away people's insurance IS AMERICA https://t.co/oJdF7s3I9O

Trump tells the Senate Majority Leader to "get back to work" while he stays at his N.J. golf club during a 17-day vacation. https://t.co/rCNoy4PTBP

I love that Trump's role in all of this is "guy who can sign his name." https://t.co/gj6zsYWg0r

Don't do it, "Mitch." It's a trap. https://t.co/Ligizoa1yl

"Mitch, get back to work" could be the meme we've needed as a nation on so many levels. https://t.co/oFVRAKJxwH

Mitch, while you're at it can you grab me a soda, and if it's on the way, an Italian sub from Firehouse Subs?
