Kentucky Sen. Mitch McConnell on Hallmark channel movie: ‘I think this tweet is worth sharing’

A tweet by a Kentucky Republican senator from a Hallmark Channel movie went viral on Friday, and claimed the audience is about to experience the “death of flavor” due to “Covid-19.”

A tweet from Senator Mitch McConnell’s account on Friday suggested Covid-19 may cause someone to eat their favorite food.

“I think this tweet is worth sharing for Hallmark Channel viewers tomorrow — #Covid19 is a terrible food by the way,” the tweet read.

The tweet was referring to the show “An Upper Class Christmas,” in which a fictional corporation called Twine Hoops develops a smart mouthwash and “unblocks flavor.”

McConnell later deleted the tweet and tweeted: “The Twine Hoops mouthwash caused moronic behavior from its user while at the same time it turned his taste buds into stevia. Thanks for the reminder Senator!”

Sen. Bob Corker tweeted: “LMAO @mcconnellangriff since when do mouthwash cause people to go insane. He’d rather talk about the soap in his mouth.”

McConnell did not respond to CNN’s requests for comment.

The mouthwash did not contain any stevia and so it is not illegal to purchase it. Stevia is a natural ingredient found in some leafy and leafy-like plants.

It’s commonly used in non-alcoholic drinks as a sweetener and in the food industry as a substitute for sugar.
