(PatriotHeadline.com) – During an interview on Fox News’ Ingraham Angle, a former aide to the Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said it’s time the Democrats “get in the mud” with their opponent.
On Wednesday, Chris Hahn said that Democrats were not aggressive enough in their fight against President Donald Trump, saying:
“You know, sometimes you’ve got to get in the mud with your opponent in this is a president who’s going to be in the mud, throwing mud.”
Hahn went further, saying:
“Nothing seems to affect [Trump], nobody wants to take him head-on. I think Eric Holder was right. When they go low, we kick them. I agree it’s time for more of that from the left because the president is a fighter. He is a street fighter and doesn’t back down from a fight. And it’s time for us to start fighting back. That is what’s going to happen.”
Hahn’s comments were metaphorical but come at a time when Democrats and far-left activists are increasingly violent. This week, an Arizona State University student was captured on film shouting “Slash Republican throats” in response to President Trump’s acquittal on the articles of impeachment. ASU police confirmed on Wednesday night that the video was being investigated.
On February 3rd, a far-left activist was caught on camera threatening Republican congressional candidate John Dennis, who is running against House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. In the video, the activist can be heard saying:
“Bruh I’mma catch you when all the cameras aren’t around and I’m gonna f*** you up!”
The activist also said that he wanted to see the congressional candidate dead.
This ANTIFA bully thought he could intimidate San Francisco Republicans.

Conservative author and commentator Dan Bongino appeared on the same segment of the Ingraham Angle and took Hahn to task over the comments, asking if he had been “eating THC brownies before the show.”
Bongino asked, “They [the Democrats] weren’t willing to take on President Trump and Trump is the one taking the low road?”
After Nancy Pelosi’s stunt following Trump’s State of the Union Address, Democrats are finding it increasingly difficult to attack the president’s character.
