Don Jr. is calling for Democrat lawmaker John Garamendi (D-CA) to apologize after he threatened a physical altercation with him.
Breitbart reports Andrew Surabian, a former White House official and spokesman for Donald Trump Jr., released a statement Friday after Rep. John Garamendi (D-CA) threatened Trump Jr. on MSNBC.
Surabian released the following statement, saying Garamendi’s comments “were beyond the pale”:
The outrageous remarks from Congressman Garamendi were beyond the pale and should be universally condemned by Republicans and Democrats alike. Almost as outrageous as the Congressman’s comments was the lack of pushback or condemnation from MSNBC host Hallie Jackson, whose silence about political violence aimed towards a member of the first family, was truly deafening.
By threatening Don Jr. with physical violence on national TV, Congressman Garamendi made clear to everyone watching that he is better suited to represent Antifa than the people of California’s 3rd Congressional district. He should apologize immediately.
Garamendi’s remarks were made after he was asked by MSNBC host Hallie Jackson to respond to Trump Jr.’s suggestion “that Democrats are taking a pandemic seemingly hoping, and I quote, ‘it comes here to kill millions of people so it can end the president’s winning.’”
