Mitch’s threats

Our senior senator, Mitch McConnell, has been making dire, dire threats about what would happen if the Senate got rid of the filibuster. He has made dramatic speeches on the Senate floor, including this:

Let me say this very clearly for all 99 of my colleagues: Nobody serving in this chamber can even begin — can even begin to imagine — what a completely scorched-earth Senate would look like.

Unfortunately for Mitch, his threats are coming across differently than he probably assumes. Aaron Smith captures the difference.
