CONSERVATIVE host Mark Levin has called for Mitch McConnell to be replaced after he congratulated Joe Biden for beating Donald Trump.
The Kentucky Republican broke his silence on the Democrat's November win after weeks on Tuesday.
"Trump helped you secure your seat, as he did so man Senate and House seats, and you couldn't even wait until January 6th," Levin tweeted following McConnell's congratulations.
"You've been the GOP "leader" in the Senate for far too long. It's time for some fresh thinking and new blood."
Since Biden's projected win, McConnell and other GOP leaders refused to contradict President Trump's declarations that he was the victor in an election marred by fraud.
McConnell made his remarks on the Senate floor on Tuesday, a day after the Electoral College formally affirmed Biden’s victory.
"Many of us hoped that the presidential election would yield a different result, but our system of government has processes to determine who will be sworn in on January 20," McConnell said.
"The Electoral College has spoken. So today, I want to congratulate President-elect Joe Biden."
He also went on to congratulate vice president-elect, Kamala Harris, but did not use her title.
"Beyond our differences, all Americans can take pride that our nation has a female vice president-elect for the very first time," he said.
Levin's comments came just days after he claimed that Democrats are "destroying" the United States and blamed the current "divisiveness" on former President Barack Obama.
The conservative talk show host made the remarks on a Sunday night broadcast of his show Life, Liberty & Levin, which was shared by outgoing Trump on his official YouTube channel.
"The Democrat party and the media are destroying this country, I really believe it started with the Obama presidency," he said.
"The divisiveness in this country is really those of us who believe in the flag, believe in the national anthem, and defend the Declaration [of Independence] and the Constitution, who are proud of our history, with certain exceptions like any other country."
"But we're proud of our forefathers. They are not."
In the seven-and-a-half minute video, Levin claimed Democrats "don't support the constitution" and pointed to Trump's election lawsuit losses in multiple states.
