Rep. Seth Moulton (D-MA) suggested that red states like Florida are “getting what’s coming to them” in regards to the coronavirus.
Moulton made his comments during a streamed conversation hosted by the nonprofit 92nd Street Y and was joined by Kentucky US Senate candidate Amy McGrath. During a question and answer period, Moulton was asked if he is “seeing minds change on the ground” over the coronavirus in Kentucky.
“We certainly have this perception in the Northeast that all the red states are, you know, they kind of — they’re getting what was coming to them because they refused to follow these mandates, and they’re playing politics with this rather than listening to the science,” Moulton said to McGrath, who smiled and nodded.
Liberal Dem claims “red states are getting what was coming to them” on coronavirus.

“I also remember saying when people asked me, ‘Hey, is McConnell in the Senate ever going to support another relief package?’ My answer was, ‘I think when they go home to their districts, it’s going to be pretty hard for them to ignore what’s going on.’ But when I said that I didn’t expect them to be facing the surge in cases that we’re seeing today.”
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s press secretary posted the video.
Michaela Johnson, a spokeswoman for Moulton claimed that McConnell was taking “cheap shots.”
“While Mitch McConnell’s constituents are trying to figure out how they’re going to pay their rent and feed their kids because he’s letting their unemployment benefits expire, his staff is clipping videos in an attempt to troll his opponent on Twitter. This is a great example of why we need Amy McGrath in the Senate. McConnell and his office would do well to spend more time working to pass the relief legislation Americans so desperately need, and less time taking cheap shots on Twitter.
This tells you everything you need to know about the Democrat party, they hate republicans and they are snobby elitists.
