'All the red states are, you know, they kind of, they are getting what was coming to them,' Moulton said

Democratic Rep. Seth Moulton blasted Republican states for ignoring science, social distancing, and wearing masks saying they are getting what’s coming to them in regards to the coronavirus.

Moulton made the remarks during an online conversation with fellow Democrat, Amy McGrath, who is running against Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

"We certainly have this perception in the Northeast that all the red states are, you know, they kind of, they are 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.

A spokesperson for McConnell tweeted the video and called out McGrath for her response to Moulton’s comments, where she “smiles and nods.”

Later, Moulton tweeted out an article reporting on his comments, saying:

“I don’t believe that personally, but it is true that some people in blue states have that perception."

"If it gets under some people’s skin enough that they start wearing masks, it will literally save lives.”

The Boston Herald article noted Moulton's remarks in the discussion:

“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.”

The response from a spokesperson for Moulton was also included in the article:

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.

Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA) responded to Moulton’s remarks:

“A Democratic congressman from our sister state of Massachusetts said that Louisianians and other Southerners are ‘getting what was coming to them’ from COVID-19. Why would anyone want someone else to contract the virus?”

Andrew Clark, the Trump Campaign's Rapid Response Director also noted:

“The Northeast still leads the United States in coronavirus deaths. More people have died in Massachusetts than in Florida."

"Stop holding up the Northeast as a beacon of coronavirus virtue. It’s not.”
