Sen. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s Monday started off on a bad note after NBC News engaged in “gotcha” journalism with a piece detailing how two of his great-great-grandfathers were slaveowners.
The piece was a blatant attempt at shaming the Kentucky Senator into supporting a reparations bill, which is being floated by some of the 2020 Democratic candidates for president – including Sen. Cory Booker (NJ).
But as the week progressed, it became clear that the story would only be a minor hiccup in an otherwise stellar week.
“You know, I find myself in the same position as president Obama. We both oppose reparations and we both are the descendants of slave owners.”
For now at least, that issue is closed.
But in contrast to McConnell’s week, McGrath’s went downhill fast.
On Wednesday, she told the Louisville Courier-Journal that there were times where she may actually support President Trump on occasion if elected to serve in the Senate. Even worse, she flip-flopped twice within a span of about three hours on support for Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
Democrats were livid.
The McConnell campaign responded the rest of the week by trolling McGrath, her campaign, and other Democrats.
The campaign ended its week by offering up some new merch that capitalized on McGrath’s flip flops:
Get your pair before Amy changes her mind again.

These might even be better than the Cocaine Mitch t-shirt. Heh.
