Sen Mitch McConnell Responds to Obama joke

After a joke that Barack Obama made at the expense of Sen Mitch McConnell at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner:

When asked about President Obama’s joke Sen. Mitch McConnell said, “I’m shocked. He’s obviously not seeing my soft side”

A little while later on Twitter, Team Mitch posted this pic:

He even gave a shout out to Clint Eastwood with an empty Chair
