Remember yesterday when Donald Trump said he would “destroy” the career of a Texas politician for not being accommodating enough to the local sheriff?
Pennsylvania’s State Senator Daylin Leach — a known Hillary Clinton supporter — is not here for that sort of intimidation. In fact, he is not here for it at all:
He posted to Facebook that Trump is a “fascist, loofah-faced shit-gibbon” and, unlike so many other state politicians, did not delete it when it started to generate attention. Instead, he posted another Facebook status that said, “‘Shit-Gibbon’ goes viral! Maybe someday it will be written on my tombstone….or his.”
A spokesperson for Leach provided this statement to PhillyVoice:
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.
