On the last night of the Republican National Convention, Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) made an appearance in the form of a taped address in which he praised Donald Trump and promised great things would take place in the next four years if Trump manages to get another term in office.
In other words, Moscow Mitch lied.
Part of the speech drew special attention on social media: When McConnell declared that he’s “always looking out for Middle America.” Sure thing, Mitch, and Trump never cheats on his wives, pays off porn stars, compliments Putin, or lies every half-second.
Reaction was swift and harsh, and on-point:
Mitch McConnell just started his speech saying “I’m always looking out for middle America.”
I don’t even know how to make a joke out of that. #RNCConvention2020

Mitch McConnell argues against DC statehood but doesn’t say he opposes it philosophically.
Instead: “With two more liberal senators, we cannot undo the damage they’ve done.”

@senatemajldr how can the Democrats even achieve the goals you’re laying out when you won’t even convene the Senate or taking up any of the House bills it has sent you?

Maybe Mitch needs to retire so he doesn’t have to humiliate himself like he did tonight. But since he clearly has no morals or shame, it’s safe to bet he won’t.
