Mitch McConnell Insists Everything Democrats Do Is Socialism

To which I say, "Promise?"

Mitch McConnell is apparently running for re-election from under a Fox News spotlight. (Also known as "DeSantis-ing".)

On Monday night's Ingraham Angle, McConnell took advantage of the airtime unencumbered by advertisers to spew this nonsense:
