Mitch McConnell’s social media team tweeted a Narcos Meme on the eve of Primary Day, where Trumpian Don Blakenship, lost the West Virginia Primary.
In one of Blankenship’s campaign advertisements, he had referred to McConnell as “Cocaine Mitch,” and called his family China People. Blakenship was the favorite to win W.Virginia, but later analysis proves that it was Blakenship’s internal bragging rights that had the media fooled, as he came in third place once the election results came out last night.
The tweet posted by McConnell’s social media team shows McConnell surrounded by the powdery substance with the caption, “Thanks For Playing, Don.” It was tweeted as soon as Blakenship was projected to lose. The meme has a likeness to the same poster used by Netflix’s TV show Narcos, about Drug cartels. On Narcos twitter page, they seemed to endorse the idea.
