Earlier this week, a Democratic Maine state lawmaker threatened the life of President Donald Trump. Now, this has come back to bite him in a big way.
“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 said in a statement.
His apology was far more eloquent than his rant of threats against the president…
Maine GOP Chairwoman Demi Kouzounas called for Hamann to resign over his “unhinged comments.”
“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,” she wrote on Facebook. “Perhaps the most alarming aspect of this tirade is an implied death threat against our President when Rep. Hamann states, ‘As long as that’s what’s coming out of that side, then I’ll match you dumb f**ks word for word. Trump is a half term President, at most, especially if I ever get within 10 feet of that p**sy.’”
