#Popcorn Moment: Is Anyone Going to Notice that Governor McAuliffe of Virginia Wants To Beat Up President Trump?

It's well known that the mainstream media holds conservatives to a different standard of excellence than liberals, but is anyone going to notice that the outgoing Governor of Virginia and rumored potential presidential candidate Terry McAuliffe said he'd have punched President Donald Trump if he'd been in Hillary Clinton's shoes during the 2016 debates?

During an interview, Chris Matthews on MSNBC’s Hardball asked McAuliffe how he’d respond if the president tried to intimidate him during a debate by hovering over him — as Trump famously did in a debate with McAuliffe’s friend, Hillary Clinton.

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

“You mean you’d deck him?”Matthews sputtered after bursting out laughing.

“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,” McAuliffe replied with a straight face. “And it wouldn’t be hard to do it but you know, this guy thinks he can intimidate everybody. It’s disgraceful, it’s embarrassing but I tell you when we take him on, back in his face, with the facts, don’t take anything from him and hit him back as hard as you possibly can. 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.”
