Mitch McConnell busted for sharing ‘troubling’ photo of his opponent on a tombstone

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell got called out by his challenger for tweeting out a photo of her name on a tombstone — hours after a pair of mass shootings claimed 31 lives in two states.

McGrath responded Monday, drawing attention to the tweet and its timing.

“Hours after the El Paso shooting, Mitch McConnell proudly tweeted this photo,” McGrath tweeted. “I find it so troubling that our politics have become so nasty and personal that the Senate Majority Leader thinks it’s appropriate to use imagery of the death of a political opponent (me) as messaging.”

Trump has shrunk the White House entirely around himself: ‘It is a government of one’

Published

on

President Donald Trump has cleared out all the constraints in his White House, which he's running much like the Trump Organization.

The president has chased away four national security advisers, three chiefs of staff, three directors of oval office operations and five communications directors -- an unprecedented amount of turnover for a modern president — and finds himself surrounded by compliant staffers and aides, reported Politico.

“It is a government of one in the same way in which the Trump Organization was a company of one,” said one former senior administration official.
