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.

Throughout the debate, McConnell reportedly laughed off coronavirus questions repeatedly.

Here’s some of what people were saying about McConnell’s laughter:
Ain’t a damn thing funny.
Our loved ones are losing everything. Kentucky is being crushed.
He finds it amusing. I find him despicable. https://t.co/5xZFhPsdpk

Twice in one week we have been subjected to that weird Mitch McConnell goblin laugh.

Kentucky deserves better than to have a condescending, power-hungry, compassionless, cold-hearted, elitist, hypocritical jackass represent them. Mitch McConnell doesn’t serve his constituents, and he embodies every failure of our political system. https://t.co/TXvGnB2AkD

The chortle from hell. Has Sen. Mitch McConnell been laughing throughout the entire coronavirus crisis? It’s utterly grotesque. Challenger Amy McGrath elevates the debate with appropriate attention to America’s serious problems. Vote @AmyMcGrathKY #KYSen pic.twitter.com/01IQ5Rd07H

If the “Dean Scream” could ultimately sink a candidate’s bid, the “McConnell Cackle” should sure do the same. And quickly I hope. https://t.co/FMaRaDlCg7

Arizona Republican likens Trump’s loss to Japan getting nuked while losing WW II — but as a good thing
President Donald Trump on Monday allowed President-elect Joe Biden's transition to proceed -- while vowing he would never concede.
Despite Trump losing the election, some Trump supporters are refusing to accept the outcome.
One Arizona Republican in Congress, Paul Gosar, drew upon the historical knowledge him learned on his way to becoming a dentist in a bizarre analogy he posted on Twitter.
Gosar suggested the Trump movement would be like an Imperial Japanese soldier in World War II who refused to surrender until 1974.
Neal Katyal predicts law schools will teach a ‘Worst Mistakes in Court’ class on Trump’s ‘pathetic’ 20-day fiasco
Prominent lawyer Neal Katyal is best known for having tried over 40 cases before the United States Supreme Court and serving as acting Solicitor General during the Obama administration.
But he also has spent more than two decades as a law professor at Georgetown.
He drew upon all of that experience for a Monday evening appearance on MSNBC's "The Last Word" with Lawrence O'Donnell.
"Someday a law school class is going to be called 'The Worst Mistakes in Court' -- and it will be just about these 20 days," Katyal predicted. "Because this legal strategy is so pathetic it makes Trump's coronavirus strategy look competent by contrast."
Trump vows he ‘will never concede’ — in 11 pm conspiracy-filled rant
Donald Trump lost the 2020 presidential to President-elect Joe Biden, but is still refusing to concede.
White House aides reportedly convinced him to allow Biden to begin his transition by telling him he did not need to use the word "concede."
But that word appeared to be on his mind late Monday night.
"What does GSA being allowed to preliminarily work with the Dems have to do with continuing to pursue our various cases on what will go down as the most corrupt election in American political history?" Trump asked while continuing to lie about the election being corrupt.
