I would never doubt Mother Jones's reporting, but I had to see this for myself.
And sure enough, there it was.
While it’s clear this isn’t a member of the United States Senate running Mitch’s Facebook page — it’s probably a 12-year-old child, forever chanting “NYAH NYAH NYAH-NYAH NYAH!!!” — I still couldn’t believe what I was seeing: some dumb fuck, in Mitch McConnell’s name, reveling in the fact that a piece of sensible legislation, pushed for by families of murdered children, men and women, was soundly defeated by a body of elected officials.
The disconnect between members of Congress and the American people has never been clearer.
The inhumanity of Republicans in Congress, even more so.
