"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.
"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.
