Mitch McConnell: I Would Prefer Trump Stay on a Script


Friday on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said he would prefer if Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump used “more scripts.”

McConnell said, “We were together, Trump and I, at the NRA convention in  my home town of Louisville a couple of weeks ago. We were talking in the green room and I said, ‘Hey, Donald, do you have a script?’ And he took it out of his pocket, and I said ‘Are you going to use it?’ He said  ‘I hate scripts, they’re so boring.’ I said ‘Put me down in favor of boring. I think you are good at entertaining large audiences and you have a lot of Twitter followers and that’s gotten you to where you are today. But I am in favor of more script and more boring if you will.'”

“He laughed,” he continued. “We’ll see. I don’t know. It will be up to him to decide whether he thinks the way he’s been operating, which got him to the nomination, will take him all the way to the White House. My advise both publicly and privately is I would like to see a few more scripts.”
