Rick Scott is the U.S. Senate’s Whiner-In-Chief

The image is pathetic: Florida’s freshman U.S. Sen. Rick Scott sitting by his pink princess phone, waiting for the call that never came. Then whining on the Fox News Rundown podcast:

“He’s not called me to say ‘Oh, how can I be helpful in the things that are important to your state?’ … He doesn’t care one iota. He just has this radical left agenda he’s fulfilling, but it’s not good for American families.”

The image is also a complete fantasy. As is the notion that the incoming president of the United States should take the time out of his first busy week in office to call the freshman senator from a state that didn’t support him in the recent fair and legal election.

We would wager that Rick Scott is pretty close to the bottom of the list of 100 U.S. senators Joe Biden is likely to call — ever.

But Scott isn’t done whining. His idea of bipartisanship, apparently, is: If I go to your inauguration, you have to call me.

“President Biden’s been pretty disappointing to me,” Scott noted. “I went to his inauguration. He gave a talk about unity. And then he spent the next seven days doing everything but unity.”

This from the guy who voted against Biden’s cabinet nominations for Secretary of the Treasury Janet Yellen and Secretary of State Antony Blinken. Oh, and he was also among the 45 senators who voted that Donald Trump’s second impeachment trial is unconstitutional.

Not to mention he was one of eight Senate Republicans to vote against certifying the election results.

Hey Rick, stay near that phone. I’m sure Joe’s call will come any minute now ….
