Watch: Arizona Dem Stands By Comment on Americans Joining Taliban

Parler Share

Rep. Kyrsten Sinema, the Democratic candidate in Arizona’s Senate race, was intercepted by a journalist and asked about comments she made expressing approval to Americans joining the Taliban, a Twitter video reveals.

Instead of walking back the horrific 2003 comments, in which Sinema said “I don’t care” if Americans join the Taliban, she tried to flip the narrative to criticizing her Republican opponent, Rep. Martha McSally, for even mentioning the Taliban statement. “Martha crossed the line with those comments and that’s the choice that she’s made in her campaign,” Sinema started to argue.

Fortunately, she was not let off the hook that easily.

“But do you regret that statement, really though, at all?” the reporter asked, interrupting the Democratic candidate.

“Well,” Sinema started, “it was an offhand comment, during an interview about a war that I believed was misguided and still believe was misguided.” She then renewed her attacks against her opponent.

According to The Daily Wire, Sinema’s interview took place Sunday with NBC reporter Vaughn Hillyard at the Litchfield Park Festival of the Arts in Litchfield Park, Arizona.

Check out a video of the exchange on Hillyard’s Twitter account:

With campaigning practically over, interactions like this could make or break a candidate.

This isn’t the first time Sinema has been forced to defend her past beliefs either. Earlier this year, she was exposed for characterizing stay-at-home moms as “leeches.” She also once accused former president George W. Bush of “setting up secret tribunals to persecute innocent people for indefinite periods of time,” as well as poisoning the water supply with arsenic.

Twitter users seemed fed-up with the candidate as well, using the post to express their frustrations.

If this is the enthusiasm Arizona voters are bringing to the polls, Sinema doesn’t stand a chance.

However, a Blue Wave is still possible in some areas.

The only thing that can keep Sinema and others like her out of office is a large force of conservative voters showing up at the polls.

Without that, the tsunami of Democratic candidates like Sinema are likely to change the face of America for years to come.
