During an Appearance on MSNBC, Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe stated that he would punch out the President if he “got in my space”.

“You would have to pick him up off the floor,” The Governor added.

Host Chris Matthews appears to use the actions of Donald Trump standing behind and leaning over Hillary Clinton during the Presidential Debate in 2016 as a reference in asking McAuliffe about how he would react.

The exchange comes after a series of comments McAuliffe makes about President Trump being an “embarrassment to the country” due to the President’s alleged  “sh*thole” remarks about protections for immigrants from multiple countries. The Governor goes further to make out the President as a “lunatic” for making such comments.

The White House response today to criticism for the President’s remarks about the “chain migration” issue of a failed immigration system was to assert that “Certain Washington politicians choose to fight for foreign countries, but President Trump will always fight for the American People”.
