Savage memes: Mitch McConnell is Twitter’s least favorite senator
Whether you know him as Moscow Mitch or Turtle Man, it wasn’t too surprising when KY Senator Mitch McConnell blocked the $2,000 stimulus checks.
After U.S. President Donald Trump demanded Americans receive a $2,000 stimulus check instead of the measly $600 in the new COVID stimulus bill, the Democrat-majority House of Representatives quickly voted it in. It was one of the most surprising alliances in U.S. history. Alas, it didn’t come to pass.
Waiting on y'all to drop the gospel remix, "Mitch Blocked It".
"The Dems had a plan to compensate me, I know
But Mitch intercepted their plan
And told the Senate, "No"
Mitch blocked it
He wouldn't let it be so
No, He wouldn't let it be so"#MitchMcConnell #Senate #StimulusCheck

Lumbering into the Senate, the turtle man himself, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, blocked those sweet, sweet stimulus checks that could’ve helped us with rent with evictions looming or paid our outstanding health care costs. Instead, we’re getting stiffed and Twitter’s not having it.
While we wish no death or harm on the reptilian-looking Senate Majority leader, Twitter is not holding back. Here are the most savage memes Twitter threw out in response to Mitch McConnell’s block.

How it started
We really imagine this was Mitch McConnell’s reaction to Trump’s declaration.

Under the bus
While it wasn’t terribly surprising Mitch McConnell would throw the stimulus bill under the bus, it stung.

Do the math again
This guy is getting paid how much to say $2K is too much for everyday Americans?
When Mitch entered Senate, his worth $150K
Today: $34 Million
His father-in-law is Chinese shipping magnate, associated with the CCP#MitchMcConnell was the 1st to refer #JoeBiden as President elect

Even the right hates him
And by right, we don’t mean the establishment right. But the heat he got on Twitter for his alleged connection to China & the CCP? Guess the left isn’t the only one calling McConnel “Moscow Mitch”.

What in the Patrick Star?
Whoever on Twitter put Patrick star in a blender with Spongebob’s cheap boss, Mr. Krabs is paying for the bleach we need to wash our eyes with! We see the resemblance though.

Oh, the classic! Twitter’s long decided that Mitch McConnell looks like a turtle

Your Mama was right about some things!
Ah, a face only a mother can love! And those teeth! If you make Mitch McConnell’s salary, can’t you afford to go to the dentist?
