Here’s a story that will surprise exactly no one. Another Democrat has threatened violence against President Trump, and with a big helping of profanity for good measure. After all, it is a day that ends in “y.”
On Tuesday, Maine State Rep. Scott Hamann (D) launched an obscene rant on Facebook against Trump and “you ignorant people” that he “can’t deal with… anymore.”
“Trump is a joke, and anyone who doesnt [sic] have their [sic] head up their [sic] ass understands that,” Hamann wrote after claiming the Russians put Trump in the White House. “He’s an admitted rapist. He inserts his fingers into women against their consent. Would you be okay with leaving him alone in a room with your wife?”
But Hamann was just getting warmed up. He also called Trump “anti-American,” an “out of the closet racist [sic],” a “liar,” and called the Trumps a “crime family.”
Guess who Hamann thought made a better president? The Hopey One, of course:
“President Obama ran quite possibly the classiest 2 term presidency in US history, no scandals, successful commander in chief, zero rape victims, and he improved the economy monthat after month… despite opposition from the racist Republicans who would not let a black president succeed… he still managed to bring down the uninsured rat, prevent people from dying or going bankrupt just because they got sic, ended wars, restored American dignity… killed foreign adversaries (instead of giving them a reach around at the G20)…
“Don’t like the truth? Can’t handle facts unless they come from Breitbart or Anonymous or your drunk uncle?
“Well then f*** you, snowflake. You’re a f***ing pussy. And you people are destroying America.”
Those people Hamann described as “clinging to your guns because you’re afraid” and “dumb f***s.” And though Hamann touted his high intellect, he made his stupidest statement yet, ending with a threat against the president:
“Trump is a half term president, at most, especially if I ever get within 10 feet of that pussy.”
Maine’s GOP chair, Demi Kouzounas, was repulsed by the post and issued a call for Hamann’s resignation by choice or force:
“Words cannot even begin to describe the level of revulsion I feel after reading Representative Scott Hamann’s recent tirade that has come to light. Perhaps the most alarming aspect of this tirade is an implied death threat against our President… The best way I can describe these comments is simple: unhinged and dangerous.
“I not only call on, but demand that Speaker Sara Gideon actually do something about her unethical and radicalized caucus. Is this language and behavior that she is willing to accept from Democrat Representatives?”
Hamann deleted his post and has since responded, giving the likely excuses that it was sarcastic and not the language he typically uses, blah, blah blah:
"I regret my impulsive decision to post something aggressively sarcastic and inappropriate in a Facebook exchange with a childhood friend. While the tone of the post was born out of frustration with the vile language currently surrounding politics, I should not have responded with the same language.
"This is not language I typically use, it does not reflect my personal values, and while misguided, it was intended to make a visceral point about the devolving political discourse in America.”
Hamann was just speaking the love language of the Left. Don't forget, when we go low, they go high!
Here's his entire post, screencapped for eternity:
