Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell was blasted following Monday's night's U.S. Senate debate in Kentucky.
McConnell began laughing when the Senate's failure to pass additional COVID-19 stimulus was criticized by Democrat Amy McGrath.
"The House passed a bill in May and the Senate went on vacation," McGrath noted.
"You just don't do that," she continued, as McConnell began laughing.
