On Friday was speaking at the conservative American Enterprise Institute where he was confronted with a question regarding corporate personhood. Earlier this month Senator introduced a constitutional amendment clarifying that are not “people.” Senator McConnell called the proposed amendment absurd.

“Well you have to give them some points for not hiding it… They are uncomfortable with corporate free speech obviously. They were not uncomfortable with corporate free speech when that owned newspapers or television stations were engaging in it. They only become uncomfortable with it when the said, why should there be a carve out for that own the media outlet and for no one else? It’s an absurd proposal and it won’t go anywhere.”
