Rep. Steve Cohen (TN), a Democratic member of the House Judiciary Committee, ripped into President Trump for his “despicable” attack on Democrats just before he departed the White House Saturday morning for Trump National Golf Course.
Trump singled out Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her three freshman colleagues as “Democrat Savages,” along with Reps. Jerrold Nadler and Adam Schiff.
Schiff and Nadler are the respective chairs of the House Intelligence and Judiciary committees, but Ocasio-Cortez “Plus 3” — Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) — don’t chair any committees.
“Can you imagine if these Do Nothing Democrat Savages, people like Nadler, Schiff, AOC Plus 3, and many more, had a Republican Party who would have done to Obama what the Do Nothings are doing to me,” Trump wrote, adding “Oh well, maybe next time!”

“The man knows nothing better than name-calling,” Cohen said. “He name calls everybody that he doesn’t like. He’s lying about Joe Biden and he’s lying about Hunter Biden.”
“Using derogatory terms is the last resort of an individual who doesn’t have the truth on their side, but the man wouldn’t know the truth if it smacked him in the face,” he continued.
“So calling us savages is despicable and wrong. We are Americans and congresspeople and he ought to respect that,” he said.
“But this man has no limits to how far he’ll go and we should expect him to get worse as he sees the noose coming around his neck and his leaving power,” Cohen concluded.
