How? How do you even come up with a statement like that? It's like saying water is not wet.

Maybe there's some context? Something that would make this statement make some kind of sense?

After a woman suggested that the lack of health care was essentially asking people to die, Labrador had a controversial answer at Lewis-Clark State College in Lewiston.
“That line is so indefensible,” Labrador said. “Nobody dies because they don’t have access to health care.”

Nope, no context!

An email to Labrador’s press secretary late Friday for comment did not receive an immediate response.

No kidding! How could his press secretary possibly come up with a defense for that statement? When he heard Labrador's remark, I assume he reacted like this:

Ass of the day - Nominee #1

Marsha Blackburn: 'As A Woman' Hillary Clinton's Lack Of 'Graciousness' To Trump Is Disappointing 

Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) suggested on Sunday that former Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton had a responsibility because of her gender to "model graciousness" after losing to President Donald Trump.

 Why I do declare, as a fine Southern belle myself, it gives me the vapors to see such unladylike conduct! You can certainly see her Yankee roots showin'!

 "I think as a woman who is in elected office, it is disappointing to me," Blackburn complained. "Hillary Clinton has the opportunity to role model graciousness. But she is choosing to live and stew in bitterness. And to blame somebody else."

 Oh, that's interesting. You know, the last time a Presidential election didn't go your way, you co-sponsored a bill to try to de-legitimize and/or humiliate the new POTUS by demanding his birth certificate. You know, "Graciousness!"

"Throughout my career, I've seen over and over again, eventually you say, 'This didn't work' or 'I didn't win' or 'I am sorry.' And you move on. You accept things. You own it. You move on. And she is missing a great opportunity by not doing that."
"Listen to her, it's always somebody else's fault," Blackburn said. "Listen to her, another day for the election and she would have won."

Hmm, funny you should say that. You're backing a President who, after he WON an election, can not stop whining about how he should also have won the popular vote so there must have been "illegal votes" cast. Like 3 million of them. This guy is being a sore loser about a contest he WON! And you have the balls to complain that HRC isn't being a gracious enough loser? So it's only women who have to have good losing etiquette?
