Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's decision to congratulate Joe Biden is sparking an immediate backlash from conservatives on social media.

McConnell on Tuesday called Biden the president-elect and said the Electoral College "has spoken."

His comments came during a speech on the Senate floor.

"Many of us had hoped the presidential election would yield a different result," McConnell admitted.

Still, many on Twitter lashed out against the comments from the Kentucky Republican.

"'Yes, Democrats are the opponents,'" one Twitter user approvingly quoted a linked article. "'However, the far more urgent MAGA ENEMY is Mitch McConnell.'"

Another wrote: "My running list of turncoat RINO's [Republican In Name Only] keeps getting longer by the day."

And one supporter of President Donald Trump tweeted: "You have made all the MSM [mainstream media], especially CNN very happy with your pronouncement. Republic voters, and poll watchers who were bullied at the polls, not so much."

Still another wrote: "Traitor. McConnell always has been a Trump hater. He is Deep State."

And one person, calling themselves the "Voice of reason" on Twitter, noted: "You just acknowledge the traitors Biden and Harris as president/VP elect. Are you a traitor too? I think so."
