Kate Coyne McCoy, Chief Strategist of the Rhode Island Democratic Party, apologized earlier this morning after she tweeted that she wanted Sen. Lindsey Graham to die from COVID-19:
I made a mistake. I used poor judgement which I obviously regret.

She has since deleted the tweet, but here’s a screenshot.
“It’s wrong to hope he dies from Covid right? Asking for a friend. #CovidIsNotOver #LindseyGraham”:

Graham, who is fully vaccinated, tested positive after attending an event for Senators on Sen. Joe Manchin’s houseboat:
I was just informed by the House physician I have tested positive for #COVID19 even after being vaccinated.
I started having flu-like symptoms Saturday night and went to the doctor this morning.

That’s “a weird way to say you’re sorry” though:
"I shouldn't have verbalized the things I truly want in my heart" is a weird way to say you're sorry.

And she’s just sorry she got caught:
