In one of the more colorful announcements a Democratic politician has made in reference to their dislike of Donald Trump, a Pennsylvania state senator is tough Trump to attempt to “destroy his career”.
In response to Donald Trump laughingly telling a breakfast group that he would destroy the career of a Texas state senator that disagreed with him on policy, Senator Daylin Leach (D – Montgomery Co.) posted the following to Facebook and Twitter: “Hey! I oppose civil asset forfeiture too. Why don’t you come after me you fascist, loofa-faced shit-gibbon!!”
Later in the day, Steve Hoenstine, spokesman for Sen. Leach, defended the remarks about Trump to the Philly Voice:
“President Trump blithely talked about destroying the career of a man who disagreed with Trump on a policy issue. Then Trump laughed about it, which is just what you’d expect from someone who gets his kicks firing people on national television. Trump just continues to undermine democratic norms, America’s system of checks and balances, and the general principle of human decency. Senator Leach is mad as hell about it, as you can see from his tweet.”
Leach was co-sponsoring a bill which was introduced that planned to reform the clinic in Pennsylvania, sone that needs a criminal conviction prior to assets are seized, much like the unidentified Texas lawmaker’s proposed laws.
Kudos, Sen. Leach. We want more mad politicians to call out Trump’s insanity and incompetence.
