McConnell On Stage At Fancy Farm Picnic As Crowd Chants “Moscow Mitch”

Progressive Dems of Benicia – ENJOY!

Video by WKMS News, Published on Aug 3, 2019

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell jabbed at political rivals on stage at the Fancy Farm Picnic in rural Graves County, Kentucky, on August 3 before a crowd divided by party line – with Republican supporters on one side and jeering Democrats on the other, the latter chanting “Moscow Mitch.”

Kentucky Democrats are capitalizing on the viral nickname following criticism over McConnell’s blocking of legislation designed to protect the political system against a foreign attack.
