  • Trump sent "assassination instructions" to McConnell, according to a conservative pundit.

  • Every Republican should be able to say that Trump's post was out of place.

  • It's bad for the party.

Scott said that every Republican should be able to reject the assassination instructions against McConnell.

The former GOP advisor and McConnell aide was referring to a Truth Social post from October 1 in which Trump went after McConnell. Trump said McConnell was opposing him because he wanted to die. McConnell's wife, Elaine Chao, the transportation secretary for the Trump administration, was insulted by Trump.

McConnell supports changing the way electoral votes are counted in congress.

In an appearance on CNN on Sunday, Jennings said that Trump's post contained "assassination instructions" directed at McConnell and that it was racist.

If you heard someone say, "Hmm, let's hand this person the presidency or the Republican nomination for president," you wouldn't say anything. "You would call the emergency number." It sounds like a deranged person is out on the street and may be a danger to themselves and other people.

Every Republican should be able to say that the insults against McConnell were beyond the pale.

It's not good for the party. It isn't good for him.

Sen. Rick Scott's hesitation to condemn Trump for writing the post was probably due to the fact that he wasn't prepared for the question. During an appearance on CNN's "State of the Union" on Sunday, host Dana Bash asked Scott if Trump's comments were acceptable, but Scott stopped short of slamming Trump.

There is something very simple about this. It is easy to say: "This is not good". It doesn't help. It isn't good for politics. It isn't good. This is bad for the country. It isn't becoming of a former president who wants to get the job again.

A spokesman at Trump's press office did not respond to Insider's requests for comment.

Business Insider has an article on it.
