The Louisville Courier-Journal reports:
National derision followed Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell home as Democrats taunted the GOP leader with T-shirts, signs and continuous chants of “Moscow Mitch” during his speech at St. Jerome Catholic Church’s annual political picnic.
McConnell and his team have taken the attacks, spawned from his refusal to take up election security measures, more personally than previous barbs. But Kentucky’s senior senator did his best to ignore those hecklers during Saturday’s speech.
“I’m going to spend as much time talking about (Democrats) as Kentuckians will voting for them this November — none,” McConnell announced.
In his first public appearance of the August recess, Mitch McConnell was greeted by loud chants of #MoscowMitch that drowned out his speech. It infuriated him. Buying Say Nyet to #MoscowMitch merch would make him even more mad: https://t.co/4H4YvzArbK pic.twitter.com/F9vX3Rv6LB
