Gov. Andy Beshear referred to the protesters as a mob in sharply condemning the weekend rally that spread to the Governor’s Mansion, where his children play. And the Democratic governor bluntly accused some Kentucky politicians of culpability for attending a previous rally.
“Let’s start by calling it what it was and what it is — actions aimed at creating fear and terror,” Beshear said of Sunday’s rally. “Crossing over barriers, standing on the other side of the glass from where I raise my kids and hanging me in an effigy, that’s an action intended to use fear to get their way.”
