Senator Mitch McConnell of the state of Kentucky, population 6 million, (or thereabout) is renaming the United States, the The United Red States of America.

The bankruptcy didn’t sit too well for the blue state governors.
“Hey, hey, hey,” said Governor Andrew Cuomo of New York, “that’s the dumbest thing I ever heard of. Blue states bail out states like Kentucky with our tax dollars. We put billions into the federal tax pot. Kentucky takes out much, much more than Kentucky puts into that tax pot. New York state could have a greater school system if we didn’t have to bail out states like Kentucky every year. And McConnell says let New York go bankrupt during a pandemic?”
During the last administration, McConnell prevented President Obama from making an appointment to the U.S. Supreme Court. McConnell claimed that a president couldn't appoint a new member to the Supreme Court in the last six months of his presidency.
Easy. He just made up that couldn't. When asked if Donald Trump could appoint a new member to the Supreme Court in the last six months of his office, McConnell said, “Sure, why not?”

"Hey, hey, hey!"
