Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) blasted the Republican National Committee on Sunday for producing a fundraising presentation that mocked the President and congressional leadership as cartoon villains and socialists.
Asked about the document -- which outlines how "ego-driven" wealthy donors could be persuaded to take out their checkbooks -- the Kentucky Republican called it "certainly not helpful" to the Republican cause.
"I can't imagine why anybody would have thought that was helpful," McConnell added. "Typically the way parties raise money is because people believe in the causes they advocate. I think the way we raise money from donors across America is to stand for things that are important for the country."
Appearing on ABC's This Week, McConnell was asked whether someone at the RNC should resign over the fundraising snafu, which was first reported by Politico's Ben Smith.
The Senate leader didn't take the bait.
"Well look, I don't run the RNC," he said. "That's up to them. But I don't like it and I don't know anybody else who does."
