McConnell challenger gives ’embarrassing’ excuse for comparing Trump victory to 9/11

This morning we posted a video from Team Mitch that included these ridiculous remarks from McConnell’s new challenger, Amy McGrath, comparing Trump’s victory in 2016 to 9/11:

McGrath says she felt like someone sucker punched her when she woke up after Trump won and said the only feeling like it was how she felt after 9/11. Despicable.

So fast forward to today when Jake Tapper asks her about it. Here’s what she says:



She claims she was just talking about the fact that no one expected Trump to win and how the 2016 election cycle was about labeling Democrats as communists. And how much fake news there was and decisiveness.

Talk about spin!

We all know exactly what she meant by those comments. She thought Trump was going to destroy America like the Muslim jihadis destroyed the twin towers, etc. Her comments were patently absurd then and they are even more so now because the liberal delusion of Trump destroying the country never came true. The country is far, far better off than it was and what upsets me most about her spin today is that she’s not apologizing and owning her mistake.

Team Mitch is gonna make mincemeat out of McGrath in 2020.

  1. I’m about 90% certain that McGrath is actually Steven Crowder in his lady-getup, and that this is a bit.

  2. She a radical pretending to hide her real politics in the hopes of fooling Kentucky voters.

    Of course, “Team Mitch” knows how to fight in elections. He’ll destroy her even though he is corrupt, two-faced, self-serving, and the biggest of the DC aristocrats furthering the agenda of an ever larger centralized government.

    If he only put 10% of the effort into fighting Democrats in DC that he does into fighting his opponents in Kentucky…

  3. I felt the same in 2008 and 2012 when I awoke to the news of BHO as our president. But, thankfully since 2016 there is a new sheriff in town, his name is Donald J Trump and like it or not he is our President. He has done his best through the obstacles forced at him from the left, right, press and media to reverse the course of the “fundamental transformation” of the greatest nation on earth. God bless him for his efforts and hard work.

  4. Of Kentucky’s two senators, Mitch is the inferior one, but he’s still better than any Democrat.

  5. Great another groveling lesbian – sorry the act is too stale to oust McConnell who I hope will be retired soon – but not to be replaced by this robot

  6. Dang, I’m definitely in the minority on this one, I know, but honestly, I think she sold that explanation very well. Really well.

    I don’t think McConnell is “going to make mincemeat” out of this woman. Actually, I have no clue as this is the first I’ve ever heard of her, or heard from her. But, if this is the way she carries herself, I think McConnell could be in trouble. In fact, I’m hoping we win enough seats in the Senate to cover a Mitch loss. I wouldn’t cry one single tear if he got bounced.

    1. That was as prepared a statement as I’ve ever heard. She knew that was going to be asked, and had a tested answer already approved.

      1. @airforcevet98 Oh, I’m sure you’re right about that. I’m just saying she surprisingly sold it well, at least for what it was. Not saying she’s correct. I was expecting a loon answer we usually get from Democrats.

    2. @ryan-o That’s it, make me go back and watch the video. You’re right, she does present herself well, compared to AOC and her ilk. She made it all the way to lieutenant colonel, she must certainly know how to smooch some heine. Judging by her looks, though, I couldn’t help but wonder if her husband is a man or a woman.

      1. @dr-strangelove
        Dammit, after reading the comments I had to force myself to go watch the video. I kept thinking “Pat” from the old SNL skitches the whole time. What is it with the modern democrat party? A huge collection of race baiting, gender confused, weirdos, all trying to stand out in the crowd.

      2. Yeah, I stereotyped her myself. She mentioned her husband and three kids and I was kinda shocked. She has all the characteristics of a lesbian.

        As you said, compared to AOC and Omar(whatever her name is)this woman seems put together. Shocking for a female Democrat.

        1. @ryan-o Maybe she’s an old-fashioned, moderate Democrat. I don’t know much about her so far.

    3. She is well spoken but considering that 2020 is a presidential election year and that the state is Kentucky, Trump’s ticket is going to drag McConnell across the finish line no matter what.

    4. Mitch needs to go, but not by this route. Hopefully a strong-willed, conservative mind steps up to the plate.

    5. Mitch, like Pelosi, plays the long game in politics. Which, if I’m not mistaken, is the *best* way to play it. Dems are very short sighted and if we put another short sighted person in there, all the advances we have made with the courts and the placement of conservative judges could possibly be lost. We must be very careful from here on out on what we wish for…

      1. @the-sane-silence-dogood Good morning. I must disagree, the Deathocrats have been playing the long game since Wilson started introducing the country to socialism.

      2. I think Mitch plays the long game for Mitch. I dont believe we have anything to do with it. He’s out for him and his.

    6. Glad I was not the only one thinking the same thing Ryan.I do not care what happens to McConnell.No Border Wall and he and his Wife’s Chinese connections.Time for Mitch to go.

      1. I just dont want the GOP to lose ths majority in the Senate. That’d be a disaster, at this point in time. Not that the GOP ever does anything meaningful with their majority. That’s why I’m hoping the GOP can at least gain enough seats to absorb a McConnell loss. He really needs to go.

  7. Stop expecting logic and fundamental honesty from people whose psyches are flawed. Their neurons don’t fire in a normal fashion.

  8. I’m about 90% certain that McGrath is actually Steven Crowder in his lady-getup, and that this is a bit.

  9. Is McGrath a man or a woman? Hard to know which. Gotta use the correct pronouns doncha know or all the snowflakes will have a global meltdown. :facepalmg:

  10. I’ve never felt anything even remotely comparable to the way I felt on 9/11 and I can’t imagine anybody feeling that way with the exception of a personal crisis. To suggest otherwise is despicable and truly diminishes that event and the people that suffered as a result. The election of BO isn’t even measurable in comparison and anybody that feels otherwise is as much a part of the problem as the radical left in my opinion. I’m getting really sick of people comparing unfavorable democratic outcomes to real tragedy and horror. People were literally jumping out of sky scrapers and splattered on the pavement below. No democratic electoral outcome is remotely equivalent to that horror.

  11. She a radical pretending to hide her real politics in the hopes of fooling Kentucky voters.

  17. Why should we search for logic emanating from a rug-muncher? They are flawed fundamentally.

  18. Lol I didn’t read about McConnell’s challenger because I can’t stand Mitch but looked at the picture and thought he had some young guy he’s going against

  19. Why should we search for logic emanating from a rug-muncher? They are flawed fundamentally.

  20. It still amazes me how anyone in the military can ever vote Democrat after serving under a Democrat President.

    1. I have noticed that the democrat vets almost always tend to have been officers… they were the types making the military dysfunctional, not the ones dealing with the dysfunction in the military.

    2. Remember when Obama had thousands of high ranking military officers replaced. He wanted to fundamentally transform everything to the left.

  21. Lol I didn’t read about McConnell’s challenger because I can’t stand Mitch but looked at the picture and thought he had some young guy he’s going against

  22. Wonder what Trump would have said if Matt Bevin had decided to run for McConnell’s Senate seat.

  23. She’s downplaying the histrionic fit that the Democrats threw when Trump was elected. They acted like big babies and the Mueller investigation and turmoil was just an extension of their denial that SHE lost.

    Maybe she should just admit that she and other Democrats totally overreacted and that they need to be better stewards of their own power and try to help the nation come back together.

    1. @trytothink Your last sentence is true, but also unrealistically naive. The current incarnation of the demonic party is hell bent on turning us into another Venezuela.

      1. Trust me, I don’t in any way think that she (or any other Democrat) would do what they should do.

    2. Maybe she should just admit that she and other Democrats totally overreacted and that they need to be better stewards of their own power

      That’s the problem, all they care about is power. Not to mention gaining more of said power. How they wield said power is totally at their discretion and they don’t care who thinks what about them. They’re all little power hungry napoleon wannabes…

      1. And that’s the eternal struggle between Leftists and Conservatives. If we just had some randomly different ideas that we struggled over equally, I think that the levels of conflict wouldn’t be so high.

        Instead, we have one group that mostly wants to be left alone (Conservatives) and one group that is always trying to dominate and rule us (Leftists). Mark Levin’s book “Liberty and Tyranny” says it all right in the title.

        1. @rwrad Pat! Hahahaha! I didn’t think of that, but she certainly has a rather masculine appearance. Someone on the radio called her Andy yesterday. It definitely seems that to be a Democrat these days, certain boxes must be checked.
