He should have held his hand out and then yanked it back at the last second. "Too slow, chump!" and then walked away.

Where can I find that shirt?!  I know a few MAGAts that would just love to see me wear that to our next confab. XD

I understand why McCarthy had to speak.  But it really is an insult to the honored, their families, and frankly - us.
 
2022-12-06 2:16:11 PM  
These are old people giving Mitch and McCarthy the finger. When they've pissed off the olds, you know it's not going well.
 
2022-12-06 2:28:26 PM  
Qevin made sure to hold the box with both hands cause he knew he wasn't getting any handshakes.

NEW: Members of the Metropolitan Police Department's Special Operations Division heckled former Officer Mike Fanone at the Congressional Gold Medal ceremony, Fanone tells me.

"They called me a piece of shiat and mockingly called me a great farking hero while clapping," he said.

Fanone says they called him a disgrace, said he was not a cop anymore, and said he didn't belong at the ceremony. It happened in the rotunda, he said.

I'm sure that the usual suspects will be along shortly to explain to everyone how this doesn't mean anything and we should just let the GOP win.

McConnell and McCarthy actually showed up to this after all they've pulled? Wow

It would have been even worse for them to have not shown up at all.

No spitting?  No setting on fire?  Not a single impalement?

They got off easy.

The Doom brigade around here ain't very bright. But whatever they lack in smarts, they make up for with petty spite and vindictive hate.
So that's nice.

Officer Sicknick's older brother is an old friend and fraternity brother of mine from college.  I haven't seen him in years but we touch base a bit on Facebook.  it's been hard to see what he and his family have gone through with all of this. it's a good family, they're very nice people, and they deserved a full Congressional investigation into what happened on January 6th.  and because of politics - the GOP filibustered the motion and the Sicknick's did not get the investigation they deserved:

https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/us-politics/brian-sicknick-mother-capitol-riot-b1858428.html

it's good to see the family walk right past McConnell and McCarthy because those two put power and politics above the life of a man who gave his life for his country.  they deserve zero respect

See, I'd do that to McArthy, but I'd grab Turtles hand, yank him forward and smash his face in with my forehead.

Why wouldn't they? Those two pieces of shiat are as responsible for Jan. 6 as Ex-President Useless farkwad is. Whether they're ever actually held accountable for it, which I'm guessing they won't be.

This is as close as we'll ever get. Sadly.

Gee, why would they walk by the Senators and Congressmen who voted to cover for TFG's bullshiat?

If you can reach for a handshake you're close enough to try killing them before security can stop you.

They must have been supremely confident that nobody would try that.  I can't say I wouldn't have; rage happens when faced with situations like that.

They're accountable only to their democrats-all-hate-America constituents. They aren't in jeopardy of facing anything but continued donations and votes.

CSPAN on Twitter: "Gladys Sicknick, the mother of fallen officer Brian Sicknick, declines to shake hands with Republican leaders during a Congressional Gold Medal ceremony honoring Jan. 6 police. https://t.co/k7cAmVVvfi" / Twitter

will this suffice?

21 House Nazis voted against giving the medals.

The Georgia she-Nazi says she voted against it because it referred to Jan 6th as an "insurrection." Which of course it was.

I can only hope that when danger comes, the capitol police fail to protect those 21 Nazis.

Maybe not McConnell..but McCarthy?

Let's just say motherfarkers out there have been killed for less.

They should have given Qevin a night stick to the throat and then just claim that the ceremony caused them to have flashbacks to that day he tried to have them killed.
 
2022-12-06 3:19:37 PM  
I'm sure they can still spin it. Let's see...

"Vocal champion for police, Mitch McConnell, refuses to shake hands with woke fake traitor cops."

Then trump can go back to his much loved "He knew what he signed up for" line at his next rally.

/You can't shame the most shameless man in politics currently alive today.
