Literally. As long as he doesn’t have to show his face on camera, of course.
My god: wheelchair-bound anti-Trumpcare protesters at Capitol are being arrested and dragged away. pic.twitter.com/erkjOn2PVE

Note: Cop vans are accessible because of the decades of activism from groups like ADAPT. ADAPTers found this amusing when chatting with me. https://t.co/hgrmdDYO69

Not saying this is the case, but I would not be at all surprised if that person is not handicapped and just used the chair for publicity 1/2

And this is how Trump's base reacts to a disabled protester being ripped from her wheelchair. Now tell me again about voter persuasion. https://t.co/1HsYv6Yzfo

hell of a thing to drag people in wheelchairs out of the senate halls while promising them bankruptcy & death and think you're the good guys

I doubt McConnell does think he’s a good guy, actually; he figures he’s defending his cushy “leadership” job, and whatever it takes to accomplish that is just fine by him.
