A top Democratic Party official in Rhode Island is facing backlash for wishing death upon Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), who announced Monday that he had contracted COVID-19 despite being fully vaccinated.

“I feel like I have a sinus infection and at present time I have mild symptoms. I will be quarantining for ten days,” Graham said. “I am very glad I was vaccinated because without vaccination I am certain I would not feel as well as I do now. My symptoms would be far worse.”

Political strategist Kate Coyne-McCoy of the Rhode Island Democratic Party responded to Graham’s diagnosis by wishing he would die from the virus.

“It’s wrong to hope he dies from Covid right? Asking for a friend,” Coyne-McCoy wrote on Twitter, adding the hashtags, “#COVIDISNOTOVER” and “#LINDSEYGRAHAM.”

Coyne-McCoy quickly deleted the tweet after receiving backlash online.

When she was hired by the Rhode Island Democratic Party in March, the party said she would “develop and implement programs that will modernize the party and position Democrats to win from the top to the bottom of the ballot.”

She is essentially the co-leader of the state Democratic Party. Her Twitter bio states that she is “leading” the state party.

In fact, Rhode Island Democratic Party Chairman Joseph McNamara, speaking of her hiring, said he and Coyne-McCoy would be “working closely” as “we build an even stronger party.”

Coyne-McCoy posted an apology Tuesday morning, saying she regretted exercising “poor judgement.”

“I made a mistake. I used poor judgement which I obviously regret,” she said.

The apology quickly generated more than a thousand responses, with most people expressing disbelief that Coyne-McCoy genuinely regretted what she wrote.

  • “It’s not a mistake when you think it through enough to type it out. Come on! You’ve been around long enough to know that you were going to get called out on it. The only regret you have is getting caught,” one person said.
  • “No you regret the backlash. You meant your words, there was no mistake,” another person said.
  • “You didn’t make a mistake. You said it because you wanted it,” one person wrote in response.
  • “There is a difference between poor judgement and gross negligence, especially from someone in a leading role,” another person pointed out.

  1. Just another psychotic little minded individual with a position of power from the Socialist/Communist Democratic Party.

  2. No different than some other Democrat who not long ago who wanted to “ . . . take out a Trump . . .” I’m sure there are more examples of love of one’s fellow humans from the party of inclusion and tolerance.
    U able to argue successfully for their points and policies, they have to resort to slurs and hatred.

  3. From what hole or from under what rock do these monsters emerge from? Leader of RI Dem party? Her state can be so proud… Shame on her. If she became ill, Graham would never consider saying a statement like that about her. He has Integrity and class. This woman cannot even rise above the sewer rats she apparently thinking this impresses.

  4. This is a prime example of the present Democratic Party and the difference of how it used to be back in the 1900’s when my parents were members of the Democratic Party that used to be for the people.
    They have changed to being crooked and for themselves and robbing from we the people and talking to us as though we are stupid.
    We are in serious trouble and I hope someone comes into power that can get us out of this mess.
    Illegals pouring in unvaccinated and idiot man demands that we get an additional vaccination. Then these ugly people wish death to Senator Graham with coved. Good luck AMERICA.

  5. Kate McCoy- what the Liberal minded Socialist Democrats revert to when they are done with their education. Their minds turn to mush and she becomes the true-gutter snipe trash lover. She is free to say whatever she wants because she lives in a free republic -like the United States. If she were living in someplace like Cuba and she spoke out wishing someone in the opposition party would die, she and her family would be dragged out of her home under cover of darkness and taken to jail or prison, and she would have time to think about what she had said. And would probably pay for her comments by having her throat choked by a pair of hands intent on removing the life out of her………..

  6. She should be stripped of her position. But, oh no, she won’t because she is democrat! If a REPUBLICAN had made commebt like hers about the different corrupt party, it would have been publicized world wide by the biased media. WHY ARE THERE NO CONSEQUENCES FOR ANYTHING ILLEGALLY SAID OR DONE BY DEMOCRATICS!!! Come on people.

  7. This is the kind of people that are running our government. She should be called out for her lack of judgment and be censored by her party

  8. Words have consequences. She believed what she said and only regretted the backlash.
    Someone in her position shoud never say anything like she did for another person. So like the
    demon dems.

  9. Coyne-McCoy is a typical Democrat just as Eric Holder said some time ago, just kick ’em when they are down. She only regretted saying it after she saw how dumb the statement sounded. Congresswoman Hirono said Democrats were smarter than Republicans but this proves that statement wrong. Democrats follow AOC and her stupid comments but she portrays and displays such ignorant statements the only job she could get before she was elected to Congress was a Bartender job even though she had a college education. Democrats were dumb enough to elect an old man with dementia and a VP with a Shady Side. Google it, “the shady side of Kamala Harris”.

  10. A key player in the national Democrat Party publicly wishes a US Senator to die from an ongoing pandemic disease that has killed millions of people of the world. Can you be more hateful and vile than that? It will be interesting to see if she is fired, as she should be, or slapped on the wrist. Or for that matter hailed as a hero.

    1. This is the kind of talk you will always get from someone in the Democrat party!
      Just like the venom that was spoken about our President Donald Trump!
      They did not know the man, yet they hated him!
      When, while in office, he made policy to help all the people of the country, there
      is not one time when anyone in the Democrat party would give him any credit!
      So I say, why would anyone be surprised at a stupid person saying such a vile statement at Senator Graham, or any Republican! It’s just par for the course for them!
      But the, Oh wait ” I made a mistake in judgment ” or ” I’m sorry for what I said ” is what they usually follow up with, which is not an apology, but a hasty C,Y.A. response.
