Trump adviser who fought drug addiction denounces 'Cocaine Mitch'

Trump administration adviser Lynne Patton said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s bid to raise money for re-election off his “Cocaine Mitch” moniker isn't funny or appropriate.

“It’s almost like making drugs cool, and they’re not,” Patton said in a Friday interview with Bold TV. “Not to sound like Nancy Reagan, but drugs are not cool, just so you know.”

Patton, an administrator in the Department of Housing and Urban Development, said McConnell’s embrace of the nickname is insensitive to people suffering from drug addiction. Patton has openly discussed her struggle with substance abuse and addiction.

“I think depending on what day it is, whether or not Mitch McConnell is a friend of the president, but as somebody who has personally struggled with cocaine addiction, I don’t think that that is funny or appropriate, I wouldn’t endorse that on any side of the aisle,” Patton said.
