As Republicans Pretend Democrats Are the Violent Ones, GOP Candidate Literally Just Threatened His Democratic Opponent on Video

That's a very specific threat.

Pennsylvania Republican gubernatorial candidate Scott Wagner made a violent threat toward incumbent Governor Tom Wolf (D) in a campaign video posted to Facebook Friday morning.

Wagner is hoping to unseat Wolf in the Keystone State, which President Donald Trump narrowly won in 2016.

Note the irony of promising to stop on your opponent’s face while decrying “negative ads.”

“Gov. Wolf, let me tell you, between now and Nov. 6, you better put a catcher’s mask on your face because I’m going to stomp all over your face with golf spikes because I’m going to win this for the state of Pennsylvania,” Wagner said, “and we’re throwing you out of office because you know what, I’m sick and tired of your negative ads.”

Incidentally, Wagner has poured more than $10 million of his own money into the race, and on Thursday announced that he was “tapped out.” The latest polls have Wolf leading Walker by more than 20 points.

Watch the full video below:

Nevermind his erratic sports references; Wagner’s bluster comes as Republicans have been playing the victim card in response to Democratic opposition of Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court.

Social media isn’t buying the boohooing of negative ad campaigns by Wagner.

One astute observer noted:

Yeah it is.

Where, then, is the Republican outrage?
