The funny part of this isn’t the wrong turn. The funny part is the idea that McConnell, of all people, might be cowed by a bunch of Democrats. It’d be like the Freedom Caucus showing up at Pelosi’s office and demanding she back a balanced-budget amendment. Think she’d be intimidated?
— A GROUP OF HOUSE DEMOCRATIC FRESHMEN marched outside in the cold, to the Senate on Tuesday to confront SENATE MAJORITY LEADER MITCH MCCONNELL in his Russell office. The only thing is he doesn’t work in that office. They quickly switched to go to his Capitol office. When they got to the Senate side of the building, they left McConnell’s office, almost went to the Senate floor, but then quickly pivoted back to the House side of the building. If they wanted, they could’ve waited on the floor for him, since they have those privileges.
Yes, everyone’s favorite frosh was part of the group.
