You’re well aware that critics of Senate Majority Leader “Cocaine” Mitch McConnell call him a turtle constantly, and the more creative ones Photoshop his head on a turtle’s body when they have the time. Heck, even supporters think the guy’s a little turtle-like, so some savvy tweeters put two and two together when this tweet from People from last December resurfaced and started making the rounds:

One of his couriers got pinched. Better not put him in gen pop.

I saw a photo last month of a sea turtle with a plastic straw stuck in its nose. I think there's more to this story. https://t.co/hespFKl1DM

This finally explains the turtle with a straw in his nose.

Oh, yeah, the one that started the craze of banning plastic straws? Maybe there is more to that story.
