These racist lefties never think twice about their actions until they’re called out. If they tweet it, they obviously believe it.
Naturally they offer up some mealy-mouthed excuse after the fact.
A liberal super-PAC that drew the ire of Republicans and Democrats alike for tweets targeting Sen. Mitch McConnell’s (R-Ky.) wife has apologized for what it called an “unnecessary comment.”
“We apologize to the secretary for that unnecessary comment and have deleted the tweets in question. In addition, we have put a review process in place to ensure tweets and other social media communications from Progress KY are reviewed and approved prior to posting,” said Progress Kentucky Executive Director Shawn Reilly in an email issued late Tuesday night.
The group had tweeted earlier this month, in reference to McConnell’s wife, former Labor Secretary Elaine Chao, “This woman has the ear of @McConnellPress — she’s his #wife. May explain why your job moved to #China!”The tweet linked to a webpage run by radio host Jeff Rense.
The page says that Chao, who was born in Taiwan, discriminated against U.S. workers while she served as Labor secretary in former President George W. Bush’s administration.
It drew the ire of both the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) and its Democratic counterpart, with NRSC Communications Director Brad Dayspring calling the tweet “disgusting” and the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee national Press Secretary Justin Barasky calling the comments “completely out of line.”
McConnell’s campaign manager, Jesse Benton, said that the group “should be ashamed of themselves” and accused Progress Kentucky of using “blatant race-baiting for political gain.”
A little late, Puffy.
