Congressman Elijah E. Cummings (D-MD) passed away last week at the age of 68.
As Chairman of the House Oversight Committee, Cummings was known throughout his decades-long career as a man of immense moral integrity and levelheaded counsel.
A wealth of Democratic and Republican lawmakers paid their respects to Cummings as he lay in state—the first Black lawmaker to be given that honor.
While most of the day was dedicated to Cummings's towering example, there was one moment of the proceedings that offered some levity. It involves one of Cummings's pall bearers—Bobby Rankin—and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY).

As Rankin goes down a line of bipartisan lawmakers, he shakes everyone's hand before appearing to snub McConnell. The Senate Majority Leader appears taken aback once Rankin passes.
The video may only be seven seconds long, but it kept Twitter cackling all day.

Despite the House of Representatives passing hundreds of bills, McConnell has widely refused to bring them to the Senate floor for confirmation. He's gleefully taken on the nickname "Grim Reaper" for his willingness to let bills die in the Senate.
A bevy of speakers honored Cummings with their eulogies on Friday morning including former Presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and Republican Congressman Mark Meadows.
