Mitch McConnell took to Twitter to share a picture of himself getting the COVID-19 vaccine, but those who scrolled a little too quickly through their feed may have seen something very different.
The Senate majority leader took to social media on Friday to share an image of himself wearing a mask and standing beside a white-coated physician handing him a small card denoting that he had received the vaccine. But the doctor had some unfortunate placement, standing in front of a large white flag that came to a point at the top. Combined with the doctor's white coat, it looked to many like McConnell was posing next to a member of the Ku Klux Klan in a full, pointed-hat uniform.
Many re-shared the image, saying it looked odd to them at a quick first glance.
