Protestors Drown Out McConnell Event In Kentucky With ‘Moscow Mitch’ Chants




Dozens of protesters interrupted Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) as he spoke during a political picnic with chants of “Moscow Mitch.”

Video shared to Twitter shows the Senate Majority Leader attempting to address the crowd over loud chants of “Moscow Mitch,” a reference to his decision to shut down two Senate bills aimed at slowing down Russian meddling in U.S. elections.

“I’m going to spend as much time talking about [Democrats] as Kentuckians will voting for them this November — none,” McConnell told the crowd at the St. Jerome Catholic Church’s annual political picnic in Fancy Farm, Ky., according to the Louisville Courier Journal.



Some protesters in the crowd could be seen wearing T-shirts and holding signs featuring the “Moscow Mitch” slogan.

McConnell used the speech to tout his track record of confirming conservative Supreme Court Justices and said he “saved the Supreme Court for a generation” by blocking former President Obama’s nomination of Merrick Garland in 2016.
