Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell joined me on WHAS Radio for a wide ranging conversation about the Biden Administration’s stimulus packages, infrastructure proposals, COVID vaccine access, moving the MLB all-star game over woke politics, and the senate seesaw of having moderate Democrat Joe Manchin voting often with Republicans.

Only once did the Senate Minority Leader cut me off while blurting “LET ME FINISH!” That’s a new over/under record!
Wide ranging interview with @LeaderMcConnell on whether @JoeBiden has ghosted him, if McConnell is still majority leader b/c @Sen_JoeMancin is a likely vote for @GOP, moving @MLB all-stars, #CancelCulture swings both ways, more 📲 LISTEN https://t.co/mtYXD8ofSW @840WHAS #loumedia pic.twitter.com/1hQxN5ac0s

Are Americans truly willing to pay per mile to use roads? Rural Americans saddled with poor roads and long distances to conduct business will never embrace the concept.
Our radio conversation weaved through a litany of topics. Senator McConnell was taken aback by Major League Baseball’s decision to move the all-star game from Georgia to Colorado because of liberal dissatisfaction with a new Georgia voting law.
A closer examination shows tighter restrictions in many other states, including Colorado. The Coors brewing company has stadium naming rights in Denver where the all-star game is headed but critics are pointing out that Coors has its own racist hiring history. Oops!
Senator McConnell, an avid baseball fan, is now softening his position on corporate social justice activism.
That aside, there is lots of evidence that cancel culture has little effect of businesses. Conservatives swear off Starbucks for no longer using “Christmas cups” or watching NFL games after players take a knee against police brutality.
There have been some ratings dips but the NFL is still the biggest spectacle on American TV. Starbucks is still the world’s largest coffee house chain.
Liberals lose their minds and cancel Chick-fil-A, Hobby Lobby, Dr. Seuss books, and so many other goods and services but have little to no effect on their bottom lines.
It’s all a lot of posturing through identity politics. Lots of sizzle and no steak.
.@LeaderMcConnell will soon join @terrymeiners live on @840WHAS to discuss vaccination distribution across #Kentucky and the bipartisan federal COVID-19 relief bills passed last year that are now law – Tune in: https://t.co/yNTLYKutKE
