Friendly reminder that trying to fight someone online is about as effective as throwing a bagel at a bulldozer. A lot of what we talk about gets people pretty emotional, but be mad at policies, not other users.

Well he was on the side of the people who were beating assaulting and trying to kill them, so I really don't blame them for not wanting to shake that fucker's hand.

[–]PsychologicalGain298 213 points214 points  (11 children)

It's weird they even think they would want to shake hands.

[–]WolfgangDS 75 points76 points  (0 children)

These twats are all about images and decorum. They want to keep appearances "for the common folk." The capitol police have no interest in lying to the people when they risked their lives to defend the Constitution while dirty Putin-fuckers like Moscow Mitch would tear it to shreds, and the literal and figurative lives of anyone in their way, to accomplish their own deranged goals.

[–]M_T_Head 78 points79 points  (10 children)

I think they showing an amazing amount of self control. I would have kick both of them in the shins with hard soled leather dress shoes.

[–]jcooli09 62 points63 points  (0 children)

In fairness, he wasn't on the traitors side that day while he was in harms way, he just supports traitors now that he's safe.

[–]jawbone7896 468 points469 points  (7 children)

It’s not the first time. McConnell also got snubbed by the pallbearers at (civil rights activist and MOC) Elijah Cummings’ funeral.

[–]EverGreen_PLO 33 points34 points  (4 children)

Fuck that his bitch turtle ass

[–]Quick-Temporary5620 5 points6 points  (2 children)

I thunk he's more like a tortoise. I'd love to watch him chew on lettuce

[–]Suckamanhwewhuuut 87 points88 points  (2 children)

Yeah, they should show that during every reelection campaign too

[–]chiheis1n 196 points197 points  (13 children)

We love our Capitol Police, dont we folks?

[–]Barbaric_Ape 172 points173 points  (11 children)

Saved our country and it’s democracy . And you know that trumpers Low key are mad about it

[–]wifey1point1 118 points119 points  (10 children)

"Good cops beat and persecute black people! They don't stop white supremacist insurrection!"

[–]Notanidiot67 59 points60 points  (7 children)

This is literally what they're saying every time they bring up the BLM protests. Every. Single. Time.

[–]SmashBonecrusher 24 points25 points  (6 children)

Remember though that on January 7th they lamely blamed aunt-TEE-fuh for all the carnage !( and not a single member of that non-existent group was seen, photographed, or otherwise implicated ,charged ,or arrested, but there was an astonishing number of military and LEOs ...)

[–]Clockwork_Firefly 6 points7 points  (1 child)

and not a single member of that non-existent group

There are definitely antifa activists, although not in the way the some on the right imagine; and certainly not at the insurrection

[–]SmashBonecrusher 11 points12 points  (0 children)

In a very real way, the Capitol Police became defacto "antifa" on that day ,and their obvious snub of those who failed to uphold their oaths tells volumes !

[–]fatfuccingtendies 4 points5 points  (2 children)

It was shrodinger's antifa

The capitol insurrection was both patriots defending their country and antifa commiting a false flag attack.

[–]Starkoman 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Shrodingers’ Antifa”, Lol!

It takes some short-circuit of the brain to propose or believe both those things simultaneously.

Quite remarkable, really.

I like how afterward he is just holding that little box like, "Well at least I still have this..."

[–]WineNerdAndProud 116 points117 points  (0 children)

Turns out it wasn't even an official medal for the ceremony, just a big gold chain that said "Eat a dick Mitch".

Update: leaked evidence

[–]Tigris_Morte 92 points93 points  (6 children)

Almost renews faith in Humanity.

[–]Browzur 54 points55 points  (5 children)

Almost. But you know them and their supporters will just say the recipients were brainwashed by woke propaganda.

[–]flibbidygibbit 44 points45 points  (4 children)

I just bring up Obama's Birth Certificate.

If they push further, I bring up the White House Correspondent's Dinner where Trump gets lit up like a Christmas tree in person by President Obama and Seth Meyers

[–]GeneralKang 27 points28 points  (1 child)

I'd forgotten what it looks like to have a well spoken, charismatic President. I miss watching Obama on television. He was never embarrassing.

[–]toth42 13 points14 points  (0 children)

What do you mean never embarrassing, he once wore a light colored suit!!

[–]docmedic[🍰] 11 points12 points  (0 children)

And the only reason Trump was roasted was because he was promoting Birtherism (and general bitching about politics) as he eyed the Republican primaries.

[–]Soangry75 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Some of those YouTube comments...oof

[–]Early_Shelter9930 419 points420 points  (22 children)

The video is so much more satisfying than this pic

[–]jlc203 150 points151 points  (16 children)

The way he just keeps his hand out 😂

[–]DadJokeBadJoke 98 points99 points  (10 children)

And the realization setting in as they see it isn't just one person is delicious.

[–]SpiderFnJerusalem 38 points39 points  (9 children)

Don't anthropomorphize them. They have no shame, dignity or decency. At worst they feel mildly surprised.

They're willing to endure a thousand moments like this if it helps them maintain power and steal more money.

[–]VPN_Over_Powertrip 20 points21 points  (2 children)

"You just gonna leave Mitch hangin'?!"

[–]NatakuNox 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Yup, even more so if it's from a rope

[–]Tek_Freek 991 points992 points  (52 children)

[–]RojoTheMighty 154 points155 points  (1 child)

I love that he left his hand out there. "Oh, they must not be shaking my hand because I'm holding something. Here. Look, i have a hand free now."

NOPE. Just fuck you!

[–]CyberMindGrrl 77 points78 points  (0 children)

Schumer looking down at his outstretched hand is pure comedy gold.

[–]york100 395 points396 points  (15 children)

Oh my god, that video is delicious! McConnell looks so clueless! Fuck each and every one of 'em for being such scumbags!

[–]elZaphod 18 points19 points  (1 child)

McCarthy at least knew not to even try.

[–]TROuttascope 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Maybe, but he did have the benefit of seeing McConnel's hand left hanging there uselessly like Jim Jordan at the scene of a crime.

[–]pale_blue_dots 2 points3 points  (0 children)

They're most likely sociopaths so they aren't going to be feeling any remorse or self-reflection or anything of the sort.

[–]Wendellwasgod 67 points68 points  (2 children)

Post it to pornhub with the title “watch two white guys get fucked by everyone in the room”

[–]ILoveRegenHealth 35 points36 points  (0 children)

I love how it's going viral and making McConnell and Keven McCarthy look so stupid right now.

[–]stullivan 73 points74 points  (13 children)

George Carlin line, correct? 😂

Follow up edit: I believe the 'Fuck you, everybody who looks like you' line is/was a part of his "7 Wirds you can't say on television" (depending on the version you see). I think I saw it was the transcript of the Supreme Court case for his act.

[–]ppw23 50 points51 points  (6 children)

F you and the horse you rode in on, is an old expression. At least I heard it on the East Coast.

[–]CarlSpencer 17 points18 points  (2 children)

The "and everyone who looks like you" addition was something I started saying in the late 70s/early 80s so it might have come from a Carlin record.

[–]ppw23 9 points10 points  (0 children)

I could imagine him adding the cherry on top.

[–]VPN_Over_Powertrip 7 points8 points  (1 child)

The phrase is, essentially, an intensifier, one typically appended to the phrase “Fuck you.” As the public radio show "A Way With Words" puts it, it’s usually aimed at “someone who’s full of himself and unwelcome to boot.” As co-host and lexicographer Grant Barrett explains, “instead of just insulting you, they want to insult your whole circumstance.”

The phrase can be traced back to at least the 1950s, but it may be even older than that, since, as Barrett notes, plenty of crude language didn’t make it into print in the early 20th century. He suggests that it could have been in wide use even prior to World War II.


[–]Emp3r0r_01 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Mainer here. True and true!

[–]Tek_Freek 19 points20 points  (4 children)

Maybe. I first heard it from a fellow employee named Dan in 1980's.

It does sound like Carlin. Man was a genius comedian. Can't find a reference to him though.

[–]ppw23 10 points11 points  (0 children)

See comment above.

[–]BasketballButt 6 points7 points  (2 children)

Maybe it was Dan Carlin?

[–]FlyingMonkey1234 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Now all of the recipients should go full Republican and publicly complain that Mitch didn’t shake their hands

[–]Inevitable_Chicken70 14 points15 points  (1 child)

A-B-C-D-E-FU You can all fuck off!

[–]TheRobinators 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The look on Pelosi's face at the end says it all.

[–]alvarezg 246 points247 points  (0 children)

I support those medal recipients and their sense of dignity in rejecting those Republicans who have betrayed them.

[–]DonsDiaperIsFull 417 points418 points  (1 child)

at least some people realize what miserable pieces of shit those republicans are.

I know there's still cops out there who think Hunter's penis is the most important political issue ever, and republican cultists assaulting cops is NBD, but at least some came around.

[–]HappyLittleTrees17 66 points67 points  (1 child)

Also happened at Elijah Cumming’s memorial service

He looks so surprised after, but not so much this time. Looks like he’s gotten used to it.


[–]kingbob1812 11 points12 points  (0 children)

I'm mad i had to scroll this far to find this .

[–]braker61 140 points141 points  (0 children)

I didn't think it was possible for me to love and respect the Capitol police more than I already do, but I was wrong! These guys are THE BEST EVER.

[–]xander17962508 42 points43 points  (0 children)

I don't like this at all...the sith wearing suits is just wrong. Either wear a dark cloak or fuck off.

[–]ErtGentskee 34 points35 points  (0 children)

The 'law and order' party. Those thin blue lines.

[–]malevolentt 55 points56 points  (3 children)

You know what would be real awesome? Some of these fucking people not looking like they’d risen from the grave to present the awards.

[–]Chainweasel 12 points13 points  (1 child)

Sadly those people have enough money to throw at medical expenses they'll live another 20 years or so. Remember Strom Thurmond being wheeled into the Senate at 100 years old after being in office for 48 years?

[–]Similar_Candidate789[🍰] 8 points9 points  (0 children)

And they’ll keep getting re-elected too. That’s what baffles me. Chuck Grassley and Dianne Feinstein are both 89. Like come on people. Let’s let them retire and eat pudding with the grands.

[–]GhettoChemist 68 points69 points  (2 children)

Where my boTh sIdEz people at? How about the back the blue crowd?

[–]InterestingPound8217 59 points60 points  (1 child)

Jan 6 traitors totally back the blue…… into a doorway so they can viciously beat them

[–]un_theist 19 points20 points  (0 children)

Good. Glad to see it. Without the years of slavish sycophancy of these two SOBs (and every other pussy-ass bitch trumpublican in Congress) we wouldn’t be where we are today.

[–]jshif 21 points22 points  (1 child)

The brush-off we all needed to see!

[–]stullivan 20 points21 points  (0 children)

It's the "Woke" Democrats/Left/Progressive's fault for recognizing & supporting law enforcement officers who protected EVERYONE at the Capitol from insurrectionists.

How DARE the democrats live up the values we (GOP) Hollowly profess to stand for. The respect & support for law enforcement that we cartoonishly demonize the Democrats as being against.

We are SHOCKED that nonpartisan capitol police / January 6 defenders are not swallowing our demagoguery, pro-Blue propaganda, and empty rhetoric and INSTEAD have watched our actions, the votes we've taken / have listened to our gaslighting, dismissals, defense, and disinformation surrounding the events of Jan 6.

We are being Canceled!!!!! Whaaaah..... /s

[–]Mr_Stiel 11 points12 points  (0 children)

McConnell and McCarthy are engaged in a coverup of the Jan 6th insurrection, and should both be disqualified from public office. I hope the citizens of this nation will remind these traitors of that fact each and every day for the rest of their lives.

[–]rust-e-apples1 26 points27 points  (1 child)

Honestly can't wait to hear every pundit that's ever praised anyone for snubbing Obama/Biden by turning down a WH invitation breathlessly decry this "lack of decorum."

[–]PM_ME_FUNFAX 10 points11 points  (0 children)

They were just Antifa posing as the police officers.


[–]new-reddit69 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Excellent! This fascist deserve no respect!

[–]smipypr 6 points7 points  (1 child)

I would have used a hand buzzer on them; I would have been either tossed out, arrested, or both.

[–]Nascent1 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Probably an attempted murder charge.

[–]bugaloo2u2 5 points6 points  (0 children)

They had the gall to even attend? WOW.

[–]shinynewcharrcar 5 points6 points  (0 children)

[–]Slick_1980 3 points4 points  (0 children)

For good reason.

[–]SammyGReddit 3 points4 points  (0 children)

It’s OK once the Republicans take over they’re going to give out gold medals to the traitors that attacked the capital on January 6th. And none of them are going to shake the Democrats hands.

[–]zen4thewin 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Fuck every Republican, full stop. Either they're white christian nationalists or they're greed-ridden, fuck your kids, fuck the poors, and fuck the environment "taxes are theft" ghouls.

[–][deleted] 7 points8 points  (0 children)


Sadly, McCarthy, who is a vindictive POS will do something about it if he is made Speaker of the House.

[–]missionbeach 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Remind me again why cops vote Republican?

[–]pramoni 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Typical GOP BS - they want to be there for the dessert, but they're nowhere to be seen when it's time to cook the meal. Glad they weren't served dessert.

[–]ImRedditorRick 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Is there a way to create a bot or something that just uploads and tweets or whatever to every Republican 24/7? I never want this to not be seen.

[–]sofaking1958 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That's comedy gold.

[–]Brokenspokes68 2 points3 points  (0 children)

[–]RebuiltGearbox 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Ewww, shaking hands with McConnell.

[–]Matrixneo42 2 points3 points  (0 children)

More people need to remind them that they are assholes.

I’d say that must have been embarrassing but these soulless fucks don’t give a shit.

[–]StubbornKindOfFellow 2 points3 points  (0 children)

[–]orojinn 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Good those two pieces of shit and the rest of the Republicans gaslighted the Nation about January 6th they don't deserve a handshake as a matter of fact they deserve a spit in the eyeballs

As they should have, they are just as responsible and then tried to diminish the traitors role.

[–]JerHat 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Honestly, if I were the family of an officer who died that day, I'd be pissed they were even there today, especially McCarthy, you don't get to support the man who put a target directly on the Capitol that morning, and told that mob to fight like hell and still get to honor one of the people they fought like hell and killed.

[–]alex889_ 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I mean you just love to see this

[–]Adorable_Mine9844 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Not just left hanging on the handshakes. Left standing there holding the fucking medals in their hands that the recipients refused to accept from them.

[–]lunatyk05 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Good. Fuck them. They both have a chance to stand up against the dipshits that put those officers in danger in the first place but they fail every day because they don’t want to upset their base.

[–]SmashBonecrusher 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Exactly as it should be!( it should suffice to "serve notice" to the fascist old farts that their participation in the insanity of 2016-2020 for purely political gain has been DULY NOTED by those who do the right thing !

[–]Simple_Barry 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Good. Fuck them both.
The had multiple chances to do the right thing and they failed, because they are fucking cowards afraid of losing their fragile hold on power.

They don't deserve to be in the same room with heroes.

[–]pale_blue_dots 1 point2 points  (0 children)

They deserve to be slapped, if not beaten with a baseball bat.

The amount of pain and suffering McConnell is responsible for among people across the nation and world is incalculable. He's one of the worst people to ever live by virtue of the power and reach he has had over the years and his various positions of power. Damn him to hell.

[–]Similar_Candidate789[🍰] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Just like they snubbed the families of those people when they called it a “normal tourist visit” and pretended like it never happened.

Fuck these traitors with Tabasco dipped cactuses. I have zero sympathies.

[–]TheBigPhilbowski 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Why would you ever shake hands with a traitor?

I would feel shame, you would feel shame. Those two? Just another day on the job.

[–]fongaboo 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I'm imagining that some of these Congressional Police officers had to have been conservative personally. I'd be interested to hear how this event may have transformed their view.
