Less than a day after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) was subjected to death threats from protesters outside his home and threatening Twitter hashtags (#MassacreMoscowMitch and #MassacreMitch), two CNN shows downplayed the protesters and one also featured 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Bill de Blasio expressing support for one of the hashtags.

In the case of de Blasio, the socialist New York City Mayor appeared on The Situation Room and, when encouraged by host Wolf Blitzer, he demanded that Congress “come back” to enact massive gun control measures because “if they don't come back, there will be tremendous anger among constituents.”
