    Star Wars’ Mark Hamill says Mitch McConnell is ‘what pure evil looks like’ as he laughed in debate

    Star Wars’ Mark Hamill calls out Mitch McConnell as ‘what pure evil looks like’ over response to coronavirus in debate

    Mark Hamill ripped Sen. Mitch McConnell after he laughed while he was being grilled on the federal response to coronavirus in the Kentucky debate Monday.

    ‘McConnell’s gleeful laugh when McGrath talks about his failures on COVID is… what pure evil looks like,’ the veteran actor, 69, tweeted.

    Hamill, best known for his role of Luke Skywalker in the Star Wars anthology, added the hashtag #Chilling to the post.

    The sequence came as McConnell was asked about the pandemic by his Democratic opponent Amy McGrath, as the retired U.S. Marine Corps fighter pilot grilled him about the federal response.

    The sequence came as McConnell was asked about the pandemic by his Democratic opponent Amy McGrath, as the retired U.S. Marine Corps fighter pilot grilled him about the federal response.

    McGrath said that the GOP’s response amounted to a ‘dereliction of duty’ amid misplaced priorities in the highest levels of government.

    ‘His one job is to help America through this crisis right now in passing legislation to keep our economy afloat so that people can make ends meet and instead of doing that, he is trying to ram through a Supreme Court nominee right now, instead of negotiating, which is what he should have been doing all summer long to make that happen,’ she said.

    The incumbent senator, who is running for his seventh term, minimized her platform: ‘I think her entire campaign is: She’s a Marine, she’s a mom and I’ve been there too long.’

    McGrath said, ‘Senator, you’ve been there for 36 years. How’s it looking, Kentucky?’

    The debate came ahead of Kentucky beginning collecting ballots via in-person voting, in addition to absentee ballots which are already arriving. 

    In the debate, McGrath cited her military background in contrast to what she labeled partisan polices on McConnell’s part in blaming Democrats for the inability to get deals done.

    ‘If you want to call yourself a leader, you’ve got to get things done,’ she said. ‘Those of us who served in the Marines, we don’t just point fingers at the other side, we get the job done.’

    The Star Wars actor often gives his political views via social media, calling President Donald Trump ‘the worst president in U.S. history’ in a separate tweet.
