Careful, Nancy. He really, really hates being called Moscow Mitch. Hates it.
Pelosi invoked the “Moscow Mitch” moniker while referring to McConnell's embrace of his portrayal as the “Grim Reaper” blocking House Democrats' progressive policies from moving forward in the Senate.
“We all want to invest in building our democracy and saving it from any enemies, foreign and domestic,” Pelosi said in remarks before the Illinois Democratic County Chairs' Association in Springfield, Ill., as she discussed House Democrats' overall agenda.
“We’ve sent our legislation to the Senate. Moscow Mitch says that he is the Grim Reaper. Imagine describing yourself as the Grim Reaper, that he’s going to bury all this legislation,” Pelosi said. “Well, we have news for him. All this legislation is alive and well in the general public.”
FYI, there are a lot of other names you can use as well. “Old-Aged Mutant Dingy Turtle” might work, too.
But, honestly, this is great. It’s high time and well deserved. Also, feel free to use the hashtag at every opportunity — #MoscowMitch. Let’s get it trending again.
