Trump Retweets “Death To Democrats” Clip [VIDEO]

The Santa Fe New Mexican reports:

Otero County Commissioner Couy Griffin has again stirred an outcry over his fiery political rhetoric — this time for saying certain Democratic governors should be executed for treason. Griffin, who founded the group Cowboys for Trump, also told the Daily Beast on Tuesday that anti-lockdown protesters might be justified in using violence. “You get to pick your poison: You either go before a firing squad, or you get the end of the rope,” Griffin said.

Griffin again insisted he was speaking politically, not literally, when he said last week at a church in Truth or Consequences that “the only good Democrat is a dead Democrat.” He repeated the comment in Tuesday’s interview just before calling for Democratic leaders to be executed, the Daily Beast said. Mike Curtis, a spokesman for the state Republican Party, said the GOP had nothing to add to its response to Griffin’s earlier “dead Democrat” comment, in which it condemned the language.
