Seventy-seven-year-old Kentucky Senator Mitch McConnell admitted today that his great grandfather was a turtle and that his race means no harm to the United States of America.
Suspicions first arose when fellow congressmen and women noticed McConnell would put objects he wasn’t familiar with in his mouth, a behavior common among turtles and some crocodiles. In fact, one time while on the Senate floor, McConnell showed aggression toward a glove.
Additionally, an anonymous McConnell staffer said when he was first elected, McConnell declined having a desk and instead opted for a giant artificial rock and heat lamp. This is where the Senator spends most of his working hours; sleeping on a rock. Only rarely getting up to urinate or defecate in the corner of his office.
“The thing that really solidified my suspicions were his turtle-like jowls,” said Texas Senator Ted Cruz (R). “I mean, I grew up in Texas, and I’ve seen my fair share of turtles. That’s a fucking turtle.”
Polling shows that Kentuckians still support McConnell.
“In common public opinion, turtles are just cold-blooded, unthinking and unfeeling creatures,” University of Kentucky Herpetology professor Horace Bartjis stated. “So McConnell really chose the right profession.”
