Former Trump lawyer and confessed liar Jenna Ellis has come under fire for mocking the fall that left Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell hospitalized with a concussion. The 81-year-old senator is expected to remain in the hospital for the next few days.
On the same day that she was officially censured for making false claims about the 2020 presidential election, Ellis posted a video of a turtle falling down the stairs with the caption, “BREAKING: Camera footage from last night’s McConnell dinner obtained.”
Twitter users wasted no time condemning her “disgusting” behavior.
“The basic lack of humanity constantly displayed by these people is truly remarkable,” CNN anchor Jake Tapper replied.
Talking Points Memo founder Josh Marshall tweeted in response to Ellis: “I’m not a huge fan of Mitch McConnell’s impact on public life in America. But you have to be a terrible person to think this is amusing or funny. I believe he’s still in the hospital?”
“Underneath it all, you’re a very sad person,” another user wrote.
Check Ellis’s tweet and some of the responses below.

An octogenarian falling down is funny? Wow, what a lovely person you are. Tell us more about how you got fined for spreading election lies, fake Christian.

And you have the utter gall to claim to be a Christian.
I do not care for Senator McConnell or the devastating effects he's had on my country, but he's an elderly man who fell and was injured. This fall is not funny, and your response is simply disgusting.

You think it's funny to ridicule an 81-year-old man who fell and got a concussion? It's juvenile. Not to mention unkind.

Underneath it all, you're a very sad person.

Wait… didnt you just sign off on admitting you're a liar?
That might be whatever you had of a career, so maybe stop being so vile and ungodly.

Wow! The Senate Republican leader suffers a concussion from a fall and this is what you think passes for a humor? Did this make you smile? Hope you’re never in a position to have people laugh at you being hospitalized. Human beings don’t get much worse than you Jenna Ellis.
