Democratic U.S. house hopeful from Kentucky to the election of President Donald Trump, the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.
Amy McGrath, a retired Navy fighter pilot, won last month’s primaries for the state’s 6th Congressional District, was caught and back to make the controversial remarks, which reported in November 2017 within the framework of a “Meet the candidate series” event, the Washington Free Beacon.
“And then, of course, the results of the election, we have a new commander-in-chief. And this morning I woke up feeling someone had sucker punched me. I mean, I felt like, ‘what is happening in my country?'” McGrath said in recently unveiled footage of the event. “The only feeling I can describe, that everyone was close to it, the feeling I had after 9/11. What just happened, where do we go from here, ” and it was the sinking feeling of sadness, and I didn’t know what to do.”
The 9/11 terrorist attack was the deadliest attack on U.S. soil in the history of the country. About 3,000 people died, including many officials from the Pentagon, and first responders.
The Republicans quickly jumped on McGrath’s comments, she calls to apologize for the comments that you made in the last year.
“In your own words, Amy McGrath woke up in the morning, after President Donald Trump is feeling the same way she felt after a terrorist attack, where 2,977 Americans were killed,” NRCC spokesman Maddie Anderson, Beacon said.
“Their rhetoric is deeply insensitive, discord and disappointment. You should apologize immediately for the statement that our President caused the elections, you will experience the same emotions as the families of the 9/11 victims.
McGrath, strongly supported by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) districts effort to flip Republican, is the incumbent Republican REP Andy Barr in the upcoming mid-term elections. In the year 2016, Barr the race with more than 20 points and won against his Democratic Challenger.
