The mainstream media is completely silent as the Democrat Governor of Virginia threatens violence against Trump, for the second time in a week.
Wonder if we’re going to get the same media outrage for a Democrat actually promoting violence that right-wingers get when the left only thinks they’re promoting violence.
Virginia’s Governor, Terry McAuliffe, said last Thursday that he’d punch Trump so hard they’d have to “pick him up off the floor” if the president ever got “in his space.”
Appearing on Hard Ball with Chris Matthews, McCauliffe was asked what he would do if Trump ever leaned over him like he did with Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential debates.
From the Washington Examiner:
“What would you do in a debate with him if he tried that?” Mr. Matthews asked. “If he came over and leaned over back of you, what would you do?”
“You’d have to pick him up off the floor,” Mr. McAuliffe replied.
“OK,” the host said, laughing. “You mean you’d deck him?”
“Listen, this guy got in my space,” Mr. McAuliffe responded. “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,” he added. “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.”
“You sound like an Irish-American politician,” Mr. Matthews said gleefully, adding that Mr. McAuliffe’s comments would undoubtedly “go viral.”

Now fast forward to Sunday’s double down:
“I think everybody sits around and dreams about a debate with President Trump and how much fun that could actually be. Get the truth out there, let the facts speak for themselves,” McAuliffe, who was Clinton’s campaign chairman in 2008, said Sunday.
McAuliffe said Trump’s reported comments calling Haiti, El Salvador and African nations “shithole countries” endanger military members and diplomats around the world, adding that the comments are “disgraceful” and “disgusting.”
“He embarrasses us,” the former Democratic National Committee chairman added. “You’re taught not to treat people that way, but to refer to all of these countries who we do trade with, we do a lot of business with, he’s an embarrassment,” McAuliffe said.
