Despite the fact that Russia unleashed a concentrated effort to influence the 2016 United States presidential election in favor of President Donald Trump, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (D-KY) refused to bring two election security bills passed by the House of Representatives to the Senate floor for a vote.

McConnell cited policy disagreements as reason for passing the bills and—as of yesterday—co-sponsored an amendment providing $250 million toward election security efforts, but this wasn't enough to keep him from earning the moniker "Moscow Mitch" for his perceived subservience to Russia's attack on United States elections.


Now, American Bridge 21st Century is offering a way to make the name permanent, at least on your browser. The super PAC is now offering a Google Chrome browser extension that changes all mentions of "Mitch McConnell" to "Moscow Mitch."

McConnell usually isn't bothered by derisive nicknames from Democrats. In fact, he often relishes them, even printing nicknames like "Cocaine Mitch" and "The Grim Reaper" on tee shirts for his campaign to sell.

But one nickname that continues to bug him is "Moscow Mitch," which he's described as a "McCarthy style attack," having railed against the moniker on the Senate floor.

People are applauding the PAC's new extension.

It's a great way to troll the Senate Majority Leader, but Chrome extensions won't save us. You can donate to Moscow Mitch's 2020 Senate opponent, Amy McGrath, here.

This hasn't quite been the case when it's a Republican President occupying the White House.

Far-Right radio host Rush Limbaugh received widespread backlash earlier this month after laughing at the idea of gay South Bend, Indiana Mayor and 2020 Presidential contender Pete Buttigieg kissing his husband on a debate stage next to "Mr. Man," President Donald Trump.

Despite the backlash, Limbaugh recently revealed that Trump himself called and told him not to apologize for his words about Buttigieg, leaving some to question whether Trump was sincere when he said recently that he wouldn't have a problem with a gay President.
