Former Deputy Secretary of State in the Obama administration Philippe Reins apparently doesn’t have a problem with Mitch McConnell being harassed while eating dinner.

The behavior is excusable because McConnell got “away with murder” by refusing to bring Obama Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland up for a Senate vote in 2016.

Reines also calls it “such a made up problem” because of the First Amendment.

Actually, it is a real problem … for Democrats who want to get elected in November.

Philippe Reines was the Deputy Assistant Secretary of State during the Obama administration … under Hillary Clinton.
