Donald Trump blasted Senator Mitch McConnell (R-Kentucky) for refusing to kill the filibuster – now the roadblock to partisan Democrat bills – and complained that former allies allowed Joe Biden to steal the presidency from him.

“He’s a stupid person,” the former president said of McConnell in an interview published by Vanity Fair on Monday. “I don’t think he’s smart enough.” He added, “I tried to convince Mitch McConnell to get rid of the filibuster, to terminate it, so that we would get everything, and he was a knucklehead and he didn’t do it.”

McConnell, the former Senate majority leader, was far from being the only target of Trump’s ire in the interview, which took place in March at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida and was done for a book by two Washington Post journalists. Former Vice President Mike Pence and Attorney General Bill Barr also took fire, as Trump faulted them for failing to stop what he called “the greatest fraud ever perpetrated in this country” – Biden’s victory in the 2020 presidential election.

Pence, who’s likely to run for president in 2024, resisted pressure from Trump to block congressional certification of Biden’s win on January 6. Pence should have challenged the results from disputed states and sent them back to lawmakers in those locales to resolve, which would have led to a different outcome, Trump said.
