Pro-Abortion Gov. Terry McAuliffe of Virginia threatened violence against President Donald Trump on Friday, saying he wanted to punch the president. McAuliffe said he would assault President Trump so aggressively that someone would have to “pick him up off the floor.”

The statement isn’t surprising coming from a staunch defender of violently killing unborn babies in abortions. Here is more from the Washington Times:

During an interview Thursday on MSNBC’s “Hardball,” host Chris Matthews asked the Virginia Democrat how he would react if Mr. Trump leaned over him during a debate, as he did with Democratic rival Hillary Clinton. (Mrs. Clinton later said that the then-presidential candidate used his size to intimidate her.)

“What would you do in a debate with him if he tried that?” Mr. Matthews asked. “If he came over and leaned over back of you, what would you do?”

“You’d have to pick him up off the floor,” Mr. McAuliffe replied.

“OK,” the host said, laughing. “You mean you’d deck him?”

“Listen, this guy got in my space,” Mr. McAuliffe responded. “You want to get in my space? I’ve always said, Chris, ‘You punch me, I’m going to punch you back twice as hard.’ And it wouldn’t be hard to do it.

“This guy thinks he can intimidate everybody. It’s disgraceful. It’s embarrassing,” he added. “But if he ever came over and leaned on me and got in my space, that would be the last time Donald Trump ever did that, I promise you that.”

The largest abortion provider in the United States gave an award to McAuliffe in May to thank him for his support. McAuliffe, a staunch abortion advocate, has a long record of siding with the abortion industry, rather than babies and moms.

For this, the Virginia affiliate of the abortion chain, the Virginia League of Planned Parenthood, presented McAuliffe with its Mary Anne Rennolds Award.

“The governor has been a champion for reproductive rights and protecting women’s health from the very beginning of his time in office,” said Allison Cooper, board chair of the abortion group.
