“You good, bro?”
Twitter users are expressing concern for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) after the lawmaker was filmed standing by President Donald Trump’s side during a news conference in the Rose Garden on Monday.
“The Daily Show” tweeted a video that slowly zoomed in on McConnell’s face with the hashtag “#FreeMcConnell.”

Blink once if you want us to come get you. Twice if you're okay. #freemcconnell— Eileen T (@eileendt5) October 16, 2017
I swear I saw him blinking in Morse M-O-R-O-N. #FreeMcConnell— Christian (@christian76w) October 16, 2017
During the press conference, which covered a wide range of topics from Puerto Rico’s hurricane recovery to the Russia investigation to the ongoing NFL protests, Trump stressed that his and McConnell’s relationship was “very good” despite his repeated criticisms of the senator and news reports suggesting otherwise.
“Despite what we read, we’re probably now closer than ever before,” Trump insisted.
