Democrats have been searching for the best way to take on Donald Trump in 2020.
And one major figure in the Party went on TV and crossed the line.
That’s because this top Democrat made a threat on Trump’s life that will have you seeing red.
Montana Senator Jon Tester is one of the few Democrats left representing a solid red state.
Tester earned Trump’s wrath when he tanked the nomination of Admiral Robby Jackson for Chief of Staff of the VA.
Tester spread lies and gossip about Jackson’s personal conduct and Jackson withdrew his candidacy for the position.
In an interview on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” co-host Joe Scarborough asked Tester about the best way to take on Trump.
Tester said you needed to “punch him in the face.”

Montana Democratic Sen. Jon Tester said Thursday the best way for Democrats to beat President Trump in 2020 is to “go back and punch him in the face” in an interview on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”
“I don’t think, even in states where Donald Trump won big, that it did you any good running away from Donald Trump,” he said. “I think you need to go back and punch him in the face. The truth is this guy is bad for this country.”
Joe Scarborough prompted the statement by asking Tester to give Democrats advice on how to defeat Trump, as someone who “had no problem” attacking him as racist, while also agreeing with him in certain policy areas, and then winning re-election
Had Trump or one of his supporters gone on TV and made a similar statement, the Fake News Media would have warped Trump’s remarks into the President calling for violence against his political opponents.
But since a Democrat made the comment, the media will correctly recognize it as a figure of speech.
The Fake News Media’s selective outrage, gaslighting, and clear manipulating of the truth to further their anti-Trump narrative is a big reason so few Americans trust the so-called “mainstream” media.
Does the media have a double standard?
