Footage Of Queasy-Looking Mitch McConnell With Trump Prompts Twitter To #FreeMcConnell

By Mark Pygas

Politics is definitely in a weird spot right now in America. People are more divided than other, but also — inexplicably — more light-hearted than ever, too as literally everything that happens in our political discourse somehow gets turned into a joke or a meme (usually in record time to boot).
