Maybe Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez missed it (who knows, she could have been staring at her magical garbage disposal), protesters were outside Mitch McConnell’s home last night threatening his life. Oh, we get it, she’s very upset that a bunch of guys was making fun of her cardboard cutout (who knew there were such things out there) but Mitch was a little preoccupied and likely didn’t have time to worry about her feeling oppressed over a photo.
Hey @senatemajldr – these young men look like they work for you.
Just wanted to clarify: are you paying for young men to practice groping & choking members of Congress w/ your payroll, or is this just the standard culture of #TeamMitch?

Was it in the best taste? Probably not.
Is it really that big of a deal? Probably not.
And seriously, she has a lot of nerve whining about culture when her own party has been calling Mitch all sorts of horrible things and even inspiring protesters to hope ‘someone cuts his heart out’. That was just one of the many sweet things they were saying outside his home last night.
But you know, THAT CARDBOARD CUTOUT is super skeery!
They look like high school kids, most likely volunteers.

Just guys messing around, right?

Gonna guess Mitch had other priorities.
Isn't as bad as that D List comedian friend of yours that held a bloodied, decapitated head of our President.

But you know, it only matters when the Right does these things.
That’s cardboard, you twit. Your threatening leftists were at his house last night, calling for people to stab Mitch. Maybe you should be quiet?

Most of the replies here are awful. These are teenagers – kids. I doubt anyone here can say they never did anything stupid as a teen. Yet people want to "hunt them down," email future colleges and ruin these boys' lives. @AOC – it's on you to tell your followers to calm down.

And these idjits wonder why we make fun of them.
You mean like these Obama staffers who continued to work closely with him after this? pic.twitter.com/V4W4gqdgId
