Senate Democrats' delaying tactics on President Donald Trump's Cabinet nominees are fueled by nothing more than rancor over losing the election, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell charged Tuesday.

The Kentucky Republican's blast came in response to Democrats' boycott of committee votes Tuesday on Treasury Secretary nominee Steven Mnuchin and Health and Human Services Secretary nominee, Georgia Rep. Tom Price — as well as filibustering over Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions's nomination as attorney general, The Hill reported

"It's time they get over the fact they lost the election," McConnell scolded, adding that Democrats were "manufacturing issues" and calling their criticism of the nominees' testimony "lies," The Hill reported.

"It's really important that Democrats get over it and start to play ball," Senate Republican Conference Chairman John Thune of South Dakota said, The Hill reported.

According to The Hill, Senate Republican Whip, Texas Sen. John Cornyn, is accusing Democratic Leader and New York Sen. Charles Schumer of getting pushed to the left by Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Vermont Independent Sen. Bernie Sanders.
