Yesterday, Hillary Clinton tweeted Mitch McConnell‘s words, which might seem weird to you. Now, a bunch of ostensibly progressive, feminist Etsy shops are selling mugs and shirts bearing his words and people are getting them tattooed on their bodies. Has the world gone mad?
Well, sort of, but no one is using McConnell’s words to praise him. See, when he prevented Elizabeth Warren from reading a letter from Coretta Scott King to oppose the nomination of Jeff Sessions as Attorney General on the Senate floor, he explained his decision by saying, “She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.”
