The internet fad of the week is #mcconnelling, a little game contrived on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. McConnell released a blank stock video of himself so his SuperPAC could later pretend they didn’t ask for it, but now it’s a thing of legend.
The original ad, featured in The Daily Show clip below, gives all the background you need.
It’s just a bunch of random photo ops of Mitch McConnell meeting with people he doesn’t represent and couldn’t care less about, save for the fact that he needs their votes.
You’ve got minorities he consistently votes against, senior citizens he votes against, women (whose rights) he votes against, and the everyday working Joe, who, in case you couldn’t guess, he likewise loathes.
Basically you’ve got clips of everyone who’s anyone who shouldn’t vote for him walking with him or shaking his clammy turtle flipper. I might have conflated tortoises there, but the point remains. It was an ad hoc and I stand by it.

Once more, with Mitch McConnell
