Top Democratic Strategist Makes Vile ‘Joke’ about GOP Senator Who Tested Positive for COVID

OPINION | Views expressed in this article do not necessarily reflect those held by Sarah Palin.

Liberals often demonstrate their disturbing lack of moral compass.

Kate Coyne-McCoy, who is the chief strategist of the Rhode Island Democratic Party, recently made a vile joke about Sen. Lindsey Graham.

Graham was diagnosis with COVID-19 and Coyne-McCoy apparently thought this was a good opportunity to make a joke.

Coyne-McCoy wrote to Twitter, “It’s wrong to hope he dies from Covid right? Asking for a friend.”

Coyne-McCoy was quickly met with serious backlash after hinting at Graham’s possible death.

Graham is fully vaccinated and announced that he came down with flu-like symptoms. He said he was diagnosed with the virus.

His symptoms are reportedly mild and he said he will be quarantining for 10 days.

Fox News added: “Even at a time when the political divide in the country seems like it could not get any deeper, posts hinting at the death of a political opponent seem to cross an imaginary line of civility. But individuals who tweet out these posts have often weighed the risks and have determined that they play to their base.”

“The Rhode Island Democrats and Coyne-McCoy did not immediately respond to after-hours emails from Fox News. The tweet was initially screengrabbed by a reporter from the Free Beacon,” the Fox New report concluded.

TRENDING 👇 Transgender Weightlifter Loses at Olympics

New Zealand weightlifter Laurel Hubbard competed as the first transgender athlete in the Olympics.

Hubbard, who transitioned at age 35, competes against women in weightlifting. Hubbard, who is now 43, entered Olympic competition after eight years following the transition. Hubbard went through male puberty then qualified to joined New Zealand’s team in weightlifting and compete for gold.

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) made its decision to allow transgender athletes to compete. “We have to pay tribute to her courage,” the IOC said. However, Hubbard quickly learned her fate at the Olympics. She failed in the women’s +87kg weightlifting.

Hubbard had three attempts. In the first attempt, the weightlifter tried to lift 120kg and failed. In the second attempt, Hubbard lifted a “very shaky” 125kg. One of the female commentators reportedly said it’s “very surprising that the questionable 125kg lift wasn’t challenged with an appeal.”

Hubbard failed to lift the 125kg on the third attempt which removed the weightlifter from the competition.

The IOC’s medical and science director — Dr. Richard Budgett — acknowledged that Hubbard competing in weightlifting was “large, difficult and complex,” Fox News reported. While transgender athletes are required to demonstrate that their testosterone level is below a specific measurement for at least 12 months prior to their first competition, serious questions remain whether decades of higher testosterone levels have already produced significant muscle growth and maturity, which give Hubbard an unfair advantage against her fellow female competitors.
