Democrat Challenging Mitch McConnell In 2020 Compared Trump’s 2016 Victory To 9/11 (VIDEO)

Amy McGrath is the Democrat who is challenging Mitch McConnell for U.S. Senate in Kentucky.

She is a military veteran and deserves credit for her service to America. However, after the 2016 election, she compared Trump’s victory to the attacks of September 11th.

“Well, what I was talking about was the fact that, you know, nobody really expected President Trump to win. And I was talking also about the entire 2016 cycle,” McGrath explained.

“Many of us were spurred into action by what happened in 2016, the labeling of each other as, ‘They’re all Communist or they’re all this or they’re all that.’ And the fake news, the divisiveness of our country was something I had never seen before…

She probably doesn’t stand much of a chance.
