Mitch McConnell has had a rough weekend. First up, he made a rare public appearance in his home state of Kentucky, where his speech was drowned out by people fed up with Moscow Mitch.
Next, he had a fall at his home and fractured his shoulder. But it wasn’t just his shoulder and speech that took a pummeling over the weekend. He’s also taking heat for sending out a tweet with a photo of a graveyard. The graveyard markers have the names of Moscow Mitch’s opponents, including former Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland and current McConnell Senate opponent Amy McGrath, a veteran Marine fighter pilot who spent 20 years defending this country in a combat role. McGrath noted how grossly inappropriate it was for McConnell to send such a message, especially at a time when the nation mourns dozens more killed in multiple mass shootings.
Some of the other names on the graveyard markers include Kentucky Attorney General Alison Lundergan Grimes (who ran against him in 2014), the Green New Deal (because he intends to kill any effort to combat climate change), and socialism (which is ironic given Kentucky takes $2.61 from the federal government for every $1 they put into federal coffers).
The sooner Mitch McConnell is away from our government, the better this entire nation will be. Then and only then can we make progress.
