Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has vowed to protect this country from socialist legislation. Well, he was far more colorful in his vow …

Speaking at an event in Owensboro, Kentucky, McConnell, who is up for re-election, told his constituents that as Senate majority leader he is uniquely positioned to block socialist policies that he warned many on the left wing of the Democratic Party are pushing.
“We are having a legitimate debate about the virtues of socialism and I don’t want you to think it’s just a 28-year-old congresswoman from New York. This is much broader than that. I’ve got five colleagues in the Senate, five colleagues running for president, who have signed on to the Green New Deal and Medicare For All,” he said.
Yeah, AOC, we’re pretty sure he was trolling you.
And it worked.
Step 1: Call yourself the “Grim Reaper for socialist legislation”
Step 2: Call anything + everything “socialist legislation”
Step 3: Profit…
(…from $300/mo insulin, fracking pipelines, poisoned water, for-profit prisons, pricing out communities, assault weapons, etc) https://t.co/2885yShaZU

Profiting from poisoned water?
Where did she get that?
You know what, never mind.
How do you get to #3 there?

We have no idea.
Republicans love profiting off poisoned water. You caught us! I am disappointed but impressed.

We see what he did here.
Or maybe he thinks that your programs will lead to mass poverty and actually hurt all the people you claim to want to help. What is with you guys always assuming that people who disagree with you have the worst intentions?

If her ideas were so great she wouldn’t have to force Americans to adopt them via legislation.
