MR. GREGORY: And do you think -- how, how do you think it comes to be that this kind of misinformation gets spread around and prevails?
SEN. McCONNELL: I have no idea, but I take the president at his word.
From last Sunday’s “Meet the Press”
Mitch McConnell says he’s a patriotic American. I take him at his word -- I don’t think that’s in dispute.
Mitch McConnell says he has America’s best interests at heart. I take him at his word.
Mitch McConnell says he has no idea how misinformation about President Obama’s religious beliefs gets spread around. That’s his position, and I take Mitch McConnell at his word.
If I asked him, Mitch McConnell would tell me he’s never beaten his wife senseless with a hammer. If he told me that, I would have no choice but to believe him.
