In a time when Republicans are at their lowest level ever, people are less likely to join in any bipartisan fun. When officials like Mitch McConnell do everything they can to protect a corrupt president and impoverish his state even more, they can expect to get backlash in the most embarrassing ways imaginable.
Like getting dissed at a televised funeral.
That’s exactly what happened to McConnell while trying to shake the hand of a pallbearer at Elijah Cummings’ funeral.
Cummings was the Chairman of the House Oversight and Reform Committee, and was highly respected in his efforts throughout his service to the nation in which he tried to keep America morally and ethically sound.
Cummings was also known for his fight against Donald Trump.
So, when one of Trump’s loyal goons showed up to Cummings’ services, it wasn’t all sunshine and roses like he expected.

McConnell even eulogized Cummings, if you can believe it, and this is what he said:

He knew there was only one reason why a son of sharecroppers, a child who had literally had to bear the injuries of bigotry, and segregation, could graduate from law school, and eventually chair, a powerful committee in Congress.”
“Only one reason, because principled leaders had fought to give kids like him a chance.”
People watching the video on Twitter had this to say about the snub:
