AOC Questions McConnell About Fancy Farm Photo Of Team Mitch Supporters

This screen capture taken Wednesday shows

A spokesman for McConnell told NBC he had nothing to announce about whether the majority leader would bring the Senate back into session.

McConnell, who is working from home while recovering from a shoulder injury, said he has already reached out to several members of Congress.

McConnell's campaign, however, is denying any involvement with the group of young men.

Demonstrators chanted, rang cowbells, banged pots and pans, and scraped a plastic shovel across the concrete sidewalk as they called for an end to white supremacy and gun violence in the Kentucky Republican's Louisville district, WLKY reported. In a live video, broadcast via Facebook, a protester can be heard saying "just stab the motherf**er in the heart, please".

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's re-election campaign team tweeted out this image of five tombstones, including one that read "R.I.P. Amy McGrath" and had the death date listed as the 2020 elections. This wasn't the first questionable image from the picnic, either: Mitch McConnell's social media team posted a photo of fake headstones - including one for Amy McGrath, one of McConnell's Democratic opponents - earlier in the day.

A gunman opened fire on El Paso Walmart shoppers on Saturday, killing at least 22 people and injuring dozens more. I'm fine with the ordinary rough and tumble of politics, but this strikes me as beyond the pale'.

"Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and liberal Twitter personalities are trying to dox some underage kids for taking a photo with a cutout at the Fancy Farm political picnic and are cheering on thousands of accounts calling for Senator McConnell to 'break his neck, '" Team Mitch, the Kentucky Republican's campaign account, tweeted on Tuesday. But McConnell, who is up for reelection next year and has aligned himself closely with President Trump, has recently been criticized for blocking election security legislation aimed at protecting the nation's political system against foreign attacks. The supporters mimed kissing and choking her. Just wanted to clarify: are you paying for young men to practice groping and choking members of Congress with your payroll, or is this just the standard culture of Team Mitch?'

(Washington Examiner) Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez offered newsrooms advice following two mass shootings over the weekend in a Twitter thread Monday.
