McConnell Congratulates Neil Armstrong on Walking on Moon

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—On Tuesday morning, Senator Mitch McConnell officially congratulated the late Neil Armstrong on becoming the first person to walk on the moon.

Speaking from the well of the Senate, McConnell said that Armstrong “deserves our congratulations” for his heroic feat.

“Mr. Armstrong, by setting foot on the moon, you have served our country well, and I hope all Americans will join me in congratulating you,” McConnell said.

The belated nature of McConnell’s congratulations raised eyebrows in Washington, coming as they did some fifty-one years after the Apollo 11 mission.

But, according to an aide to the Majority Leader, McConnell wanted to be sure that the moon “had been officially walked on” before congratulating Armstrong.

The effect of McConnell’s comments remains unclear, however, with many congressional Republicans still refusing to acknowledge that Neil Armstrong walked on the moon.
