The Media (D) obsesses over President Trump’s tweets and calls him out on the most innocuous things. Somehow they missed this one by a Democrat State Senator, and it is a doozie!
Pennsylvania State Senator, Daylin Leach (D) isn’t amused by a joke made by President Trump regarding the law enforcement power enabling police to seize the assets of individuals suspected of committing crimes.
Here is the uncensored tweet:
Democrat Daylin Leach, who represents Montgomery, posted on Twitter and Facebook: ‘Hey! I oppose civil asset forfeiture too.
‘Why don’t you come after me you fascist, loofa-faced s***-gibbon!!’
He wrote the profanity-laden message after the President’s remarks from a meeting with county sheriffs on Tuesday were released.
During the meeting, Trump told a Texas sheriff they could ‘destroy’ the career of a state lawmaker trying to reform asset forfeiture laws.
Law enforcement can use the powers to take cash and property from individuals suspected of committing a crime, even if they aren’t charged or haven’t been found guilty of a crime.
Critics say police abuse the rules as a funding source, but others say Mexican cartels would benefit if cops didn’t have the power.
During the meeting, a Texas Sheriff, Harold Eavenson, criticized an unnamed state senator who believes police shouldn’t receive forfeiture money unless a case ends in a conviction.
Trump responded: ‘Who is the state senator? Do you want to give his name? We’ll destroy his career’.
The sheriffs then burst into laughter…
…Leach’s spokesman, Steve Hoenstine, said in a statement to Philly News that the senators post was justified.
‘President Trump blithely talked about destroying the career of a man who disagreed with Trump on a policy issue,’ he said.
‘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.’

See that? This Senator is irate. He’s had it with President Trump’s juvenile bullying of political opponents.
That’s why he tweeted that Trump was a ‘fascist, loofah-faced sh*t-gibbon’.
Because this is political opposition, not name-calling, you crazy, fascist free-speech hating bigots!
So, it’s perfectly fine to call Senator Leach a dim-witted, snaggle-toothed poltroon.
‘Cause that’s just political disagreement.
Maybe he just had a bad joint.
