Amy McGrath is something to give you hope in US politics

Watching the chaos in the White House, the total degradation of the office of President by Donald Trump is thoroughly depressing. To cheer you up, allow me to introduce Amy McGrath.

McGrath has just released one of the best ┬ápolitical campaign videos I’ve ever seen. She’s a retired Lieutenant General in the US Marine Corps, and….well, I’ll let you tell you her story herself.

It is obviously going to be very hard for McGrath to to win as a Democrat in Kentucky. However, given her story and the way she tells it, I would not count anything out just yet. As she said: “We’ll see about that.”


My first book "Not Buying It", looking at post-truth in media and politics, is being published by Unbound
