Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell responded to a crack President Obama made about him at the White House Correspondents' Dinner with a reference to Clint Eastwood's empty chair bit at the Republican National Convention.
Obama had joked that people complain that he doesn't reach across the aisle enough. "'Why don't you get a drink with Mitch McConnell?' they ask," Obama said. "Really? Why don't you get a drink with Mitch McConnell?"
McConnell responded during an appearance before the Southeast Kentucky Chamber of Commerce, the Washington Post reports, saying: “I’m shocked. He’s obviously not seeing my soft side.”
