Mitch McConnell Is Having A Very, Very Bad Week

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is having a very, very bad week.

First, it was cardboard tombstones next to campaign signs, which McConnell’s campaign staff Tweeted out:

Political opponent Amy McGrath noticed her name on the signs.  Also listed were the names of Judge Merrick Garland, “Socialism,” and other alleged McConnell foes.

McGrath raised questions about the appropriateness of the display given mass shootings happening on the same weekend these erect “tombstones” were staked into the ground.

Then, New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez raised concerns about what appear to be members of McConnell’s team groping and making out with a cardboard cutout of herself:

The reaction from AOC went like this: “Hey [McConnell], these young men look like they work for you. Just wanted to clarify: are you paying for young men to practice groping & choking members of Congress w/ your payroll, or is this just the standard culture of #TeamMitch? Thanks.”

Meanwhile, senate staffer Tweeted that protesters outside McConnell’s personal home said someone should “stab the motherf—er in the heart,” a Fact Fox News was quick to report.

Add all this to the fact that McConnell is home recovering from a fall which left him with a fractured shoulder.
