On Thursday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) took the stage to defend President Donald Trump, and make the case to the American people for retaining the Republican Senate majority. During the speech, McConnell cast himself as the sole caretaker of "middle America" and went out of his way to trash the idea of D.C. statehood, claiming that its residents don't deserve the right to elect senators because they wouldn't vote for Republicans.

McConnell's speech quickly drew fire from social media.
