McConnell: I'm not watching the DNC because I already know what they're saying

"I haven’t been watching the Democratic National Convention speeches because I don’t need to; I already know what they’re all going to say," McConnell said Thursday according to the Jessamine Journal of Kentucky.

McConnell added that all the DNC speeches will say is that the major issues facing the country are Republicans' fault.

"They’re going to say, ‘It’s not our fault,’ and we need to tell them we’ve given them four years; we’re not giving them another four," McConnell continued.

McConnell's comments are similar to those of other top Democrats and Republicans who have said they weren't watching the opposing party's national convention.
