Dem Home hopeful says she felt like soon after 9/11 terror following Trump&#039s election: report

Dem Property hopeful says she felt like following 9/11 terror following Trump&#039s election: report

A Democratic U.S. Residence hopeful from Kentucky compared the election of President Donald Trump to the September 11, 2001 terror attacks.

Amy McGrath, a retired Marine fighter pilot who won last month’s Democratic primary for the state’s 6th Congressional District, was caught creating the controversial remarks back in November 2017 for the duration of a &ldquoMeet the Candidates Series&quot occasion, the Washington Free of charge Beacon reported.

&quotAnd then, of course, the benefits of the election, we have a new commander-in-chief. And that morning I woke up like somebody had sucker punched me. I mean, I felt like, &lsquowhat has just occurred to my nation?&rsquo&quot McGrath said in the not too long ago revealed footage from the occasion. &quotThe only feeling I can describe that’s any close to it was the feeling I had right after 9/11. What just occurred, exactly where are we going from right here,’ and it was that just sinking feeling of sadness, and I didn’t know what to do.&quot

The 9/11 terror attack was the deadliest attack on the U.S. soil in the country&rsquos history. About 3,000 men and women died, including several officials from the Pentagon and initial responders.

The Republicans speedily jumped on McGrath&rsquos remarks, calling her to apologize for the comments she produced final year.

&quotIn her personal words, Amy McGrath woke up the morning soon after President Donald Trump&rsquos election feeling the same way she felt soon after a terrorist attack exactly where 2,977 Americans had been killed,&quot NRCC press secretary Maddie Anderson told The Beacon.

&quotHer rhetoric is deeply insensitive, divisive, and disappointing. She must apologize right away for saying that our President&rsquos election triggered her to knowledge the exact same emotions as the families of 9/11 victims.

McGrath, who is heavily backed by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee&rsquos (DCCC) work to flip Republican districts, will face incumbent Republican Rep. Andy Barr in the upcoming midterm elections. In 2016, Barr won the race by more than 20 points against his Democratic challenger.
