President Trump, during an early Thursday morning interview with ‘Fox & Friends,’ responded to former-Attorney General Eric Holder’s comments that Democrats need to start turning to violence in order to deal with Republicans.
Presumably, Democrats believe that when they can’t beat Republicans with words and arguments, the only way to get what they want is to turn to violence and mob-mentality.
“When they go low, we kick ’em,” Holder said.
Trump responded to Holder directly, saying,
“He better be careful what he’s wishing for.”
Fox News reports,
President Trump, in an interview Thursday with “Fox & Friends,” rebuked Eric Holder for his call to “kick” Republicans and spurn civility, saying the Obama attorney general’s comments were “disgusting” and “dangerous.”
“He better be careful what he’s wishing for,” Trump told Fox News. “That’s a disgusting statement for him to make.”
Holder was captured on video speaking Sunday at a campaign event for local Georgia Democratic candidates. In the clip, he rejected former first lady Michelle Obama’s famous call for civility in politics – adopting a confrontational tone that’s become increasingly fashionable amid the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation fight and other debates.
“It is time for us, as Democrats, to be as tough as they are, to be as dedicated as they are, to be as committed as they are,” Holder told the crowd. “Michelle always says — I love her; she and my wife are like, really tight, which always scares me and Barack — but Michelle always says, ‘When they go low, we go high.’ No. When they go low, we kick ’em.”
His fiery remarks came after former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told CNN in an interview, “You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for.”
