Lawmakers may be working on Christmas. Fox’s Chad Pergram explains in today’s “Speaker’s Lobby.”
I’m Chad Pergram with the Speaker’s Lobby.
A casual Congressional observer might mistake Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for getting a little sappy at Christmastime.
In the past few days, McConnell’s declared he’s quote, “Hoping for a Christmas miracle.” And saying “Magic things happen at Christmas.”
McConnell’s statements may rate with with the lyrical intonations of Irving Berlin, conjuring up Hallmark-worthy Christmas specials.
Titles like Christmas in Washington, A Capitol Christmas, Christmas on Capitol Hill.
But before anyone thinks this is like a picture print by Currier and Ives, know that McConnell has a bleak forecast for the Yuletide season.
McConnell is warning senators should be prepared to work at the Capitol, between Christmas and New Year’s.
A top McConnell aide told the press corps “don’t buy any non-refundable tickets for travel this month.”
And you thought only the Grinch had a heart that was two sizes too small.
