There are some truly despicable people in the world. For instance, those people who openly advocate for the murder of innocent people right up until the child is born and those who support infanticide immediately come to mind.
Also, as one Democratic operative showed us, there is another kind of terrible person: mocking those who suffer or who have suffered from disabilities/diseases.
Adam Parkhomenko recently posted a video of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell tripping and falling. He then goes on to say that McConnell “does not want you to let this video get up to 1,000,000 views.
Yesterday I posted this new found footage of Mitch McConnell standing up for America. 368,000 views overnight. Mitch McConnell does not want you to let this video get up to 1,000,000 views. pic.twitter.com/PZTGBGOrjt

For those who may not know, McConnell as a child suffered from polio and supposedly still has trouble with one leg and often has trouble with stairs/going up steps.
Parkhomenko received swift and negative backlash.
Hi, garbage human being.
McConnell had polio as a child. Steps are difficult for him. Maybe fix your life, examine the ugliness of your spirit, before what you put out there comes back on you.

McConnell had polio as a kid and his leg is partially paralyzed because of it, you POS.
But great way to demonstrate that “moral superiority” you Dems keep thinking you have over us…..👍

You’re a garbage human being. Nothing like a good laugh over a polio survivor taking the stairs, right?

It's the result of a childhood illness, which you may not have known when you posted this. But now that you do, you should delete it. It's cruel and unnecessary to mock people for disabilities.

Are you kidding me? This hurts my heart – the fall and your glee at it.

This post is a serious misstep and it’s not hard to know that. Sad for Dems to have this coming from our side.

Congrats on achieving the impossible ie making me feel sympathy for McConnell

I disagree with McConnell on almost everything (maybe everything), but this is gross. We are supposed to be better than this. Take it down.

He had polio. This is just mean. (And I am not fond of him or his politics.)
