Virginia Democrat Gov. Terry McAuliffe’s term ends on Saturday. Being on his way out must be why he had enough bravado to threaten violence against the president of the United States.
During an appearance on MSNBC’s Hardball on Thursday, host Chris Matthews asked what McAuliffe would do if President Trump were to get too close to him during a debate like he did with Hillary Clinton.
“You’d have to pick him up off the floor,” the governor said.
That brought a few tingles up Matthews’ leg once again: “You mean you’d deck him?”
“Listen, this guy got in my space. You want to get in my space? I’ve always said, Chris, ‘You punch me, I’m going to punch you back twice as hard.’ And it wouldn’t be hard to do it.
“This guy thinks he can intimidate everybody. It’s disgraceful. It’s embarrassing. But if he ever came over and leaned on me and got in my space, that would be the last time Donald Trump ever did that, I promise you that.”
Matthews complimented the governor for his “Irish-American” political tactics.
This reminds us of the time Vice President Joe Biden said he would like to take Trump behind the high school gym and pound in his head. Why is the Left always threatening fist fights?
Sarah Huckabee Sanders is “punchable.”
“Nazis” are punchable.
“Punch a Zionist” is a thing.
Meanwhile in a tweet on Friday, Biden is acting like he’s taking the high road:
For a party that says they're against bullying, they're the biggest bullies of the bunch. And pious about it, too.
