‘Tolerant Left’ Goes After Sen. Mitch McConnell’s Wife
The ‘Tolerant Left’ has struck again. Their target this time? Kentucky Senator Mitch McConnell. Well, not so much Senator McConnell as his wife, former Labor Secretary Elaine Chao. Well, not so much his wife as the fact the she was born in Taiwan. From WFPL:
For months, the liberal super PAC Progress Kentucky has attacked McConnell and held demonstrations at his offices and home. Recently, the group turned its attention to McConnell’s wife, former Secretary of Labor Elaine Chao, with a focus on her race.
Look at this hatefulness:

According to the post, the leftist PAC that sent out the racially-charged tweet initially tried to deny any wrongdoing, but eventually sent out a weak response to defend their race-baiting:
Progress Kentucky spokesman Curtis Morrison says the group’s leaders do not review every Tweet and initially denied any had mentioned Chao superficially. But he later told WFPL that a group volunteer had sent out the messages targeting the former secretary.
“It’s not an official statement. It’s a Tweet. And we will remove it if it’s wrong,” he says. “I follow Ashley Judd on Twitter and she removed a Tweet the other day, she Tweeted to you Phillip. People make mistakes in Tweets. It happens. Inferring that Elaine Chao is not a U.S. citizen was not our intention.”
Sure it wasn’t, racists.
