Whether it’s her far-left stance on abortion or her comparing President Trump’s election to the tragedy of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, Amy McGrath’s values align more with those of Chuck Schumer and the Washington Democrat establishment than they do with Kentucky’s. Unsurprisingly, McGrath is now refusing to denounce a supporter who is well-known for hanging President Trump in effigy, proving once again she prioritizes extreme liberals over Kentuckians.
In case you missed it, here is what the Bowling Green Daily News Editorial Board has to say about McGrath’s embarrassing silence:
“We’re once again taking her to task over a photo that has emerged of McGrath with leftist extremist Ken Blair and failed congressional candidate Patti Pratt. For those not familiar with Blair, he is well known for advocating violence against Trump and for hanging a Trump effigy in 2017 […]
“McGrath hasn’t spoken of the photo, which is very telling. One of the oddest things about this, other than the candidate’s past statements, is in her ads and statements she constantly talks about her military service, which we applaud, but she cannot denounce being in a picture with an individual who hung the American flag upside down.
“It’s well known that flying the flag upside down is a sign of disrespect to the American flag.
“For someone who touts her military service quite often, where is her apology for posing in a picture with an extremist man like Blair?
“Nowhere to be seen, which is very telling about McGrath and her politics. It’s quite obvious what is occurring here and that is she is staying quiet to appease her far-left base that is sending millions of dollars of out-of-state money into her campaign.
“McGrath really is a flawed candidate. She takes her orders from Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, who reportedly recruited her, and cannot stand on her own two feet as a candidate, which is one of the many reasons why we believe U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., will beat her like a drum come Election Day.
“Her silence on this most disturbing issue and her other far-left comments won’t play well in Kentucky and once again shows McGrath doesn’t represent Kentucky values.”
