Not so long ago, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) was dubbed “Moscow Mitch,” a derogatory nickname that he reportedly hated and found offensive even after he repeatedly defended Russia and led the charge to lift sanctions on the Kremlin and companies allied with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

“The newspaper depicted McConnell as a worm after Senate Republicans on Friday blocked bipartisan legislation to set up an independent commission to investigate the deadly Jan. 6 Capitol riot. Weeks after he left office, former President Donald Trump was impeached for inciting the violence.”

Others on social media then joined the party and trashed McConnell in grand fashion:
