Sen. McConnell responds to Pres. Obama's WHCD joke
UNDATED (WHDH) -- Republican Senator Mitch McConnell responded to a joke made by President Obama during the White House Correspondents Dinner.
The president joked that some people have said he should have a drink with McConnell.
"Really? Why don't you get a drink with Mitch McConnell?" he said during his roast of the media.
Just two days after President Obama made the comment, Senator McConnell came back with a response on Twitter.
McConnell’s 2014 re-election team posted a photo that shows McConnell at a bar, gesturing to an empty chair.
In the photo, McConnell has a beer, while a glass of red wine has already been ordered for the president.
He directed the tweet to President Obama with a nod to Clint Eastwood, whose RNC speech became a popular internet meme known as ‘Eastwooding’: “@BarackObama @Eastwood_ Greetings from coal country! Hazard, KY -MM”.
