President Trump, in an interview Thursday with “Fox & Friends,” rebuked Eric Holder for his call to “kick” Republicans and spurn civility, saying the Obama attorney general’s comments were “disgusting” and “dangerous.”

“He better be careful what he’s wishing for,” Trump told Fox News. “That’s a disgusting statement for him to make.”

Holder was captured on video speaking Sunday at a campaign event for local Georgia Democratic candidates. In the clip, he rejected former first lady Michelle Obama’s famous call for civility in politics – adopting a confrontational tone that’s become increasingly fashionable amid the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation fight and other debates.

“It is time for us, as Democrats, to be as tough as they are, to be as dedicated as they are, to be as committed as they are,” Holder told the crowd. “Michelle always says — I love her; she and my wife are like, really tight, which always scares me and Barack — but Michelle always says, ‘When they go low, we go high.’ No. When they go low, we kick ’em.”

His fiery remarks came after former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told CNN in an interview, “You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for.”

Holder is considered a potential 2020 presidential candidate and has said he will make a final decision on running early next year.

Regarding that possibility, Trump said, “I think the primaries would gobble him up.”

Holder fired back later in the day, tweeting that he was not “advocating violence” — while ridiculing the “fake outrage” over his remarks.

    Holder running for president in 2020? Lol! What a joke that is! Also sounds like he definitely needs to take an anger management class.

      This Mob Mentality is getting more violent each day. Eric Holder is fanning the flames – and he’ll have to answer for that.

    Why are these people not arrested for inciting violence?

      That’s what I was going to say. All this moral superiority is only allowing them to set precedent. Go all the way back to Kathy Griffith. These liberals want to play dumb, it’s up to conservatives to show them exactly what the difference is in a court of law between “freedom of speech” & “h8te speech.”

      Conservatives are complicit if they don’t start applying the law & prosecuting to its full extent.

        Kathy Griffin got fired from CNN since that stunt. And I haven’t heard anything from her since. She’s just obsessed over Trump and making excuses for her dumbass actions. Whoever was instrumental in blacklisting her (according to a speech at some bumfuck awards show) deserves to have Christmas presents every year.

    I expected no less from a Chicago hood. The fact Holder was allowed to be our AG speaks volumes not about about the administration that hired him but but the citizens and elected officials in both political parties who tolerated it.

    There is one thing I can make a promise for sure. If Eric, God forbid, or any of the other left minded people make it into the W/H or take control of any of the two houses, your lives as you know them will change for the worse. They intend total control of the conservative minded people and will turn their red coat soliders to take you down. This is not a good time to be alive. My only joy in all of this is that I’m old and probably only looking at another 10 years or less on this world and then I’m off to my reward through Jesus Christ. I will not be around to watch the country collapse in the chaos it is heading and mark my word, it’s heading there fast.

      I respect this comment. We’ll be okay. I’m certain the DNC will be investigated for a lot of crimes, including illegal voting and sedition.

    Holder was and is a joke. His remark is a typical liberal remark. To put it bluntly,, the so-called Democratic Party is no longer…it was destroyed in in 2008 by that elected president. Many are now calling that party the LLS.
    Liberal Left Socialist Party. Seems to fit because of all their violence, aggressive protests, immature and derogatory statements, foul language and many other actions that should have meant arrests and/or investigations by the authorities. Holder is a fine example of that party’s intelligence. Hope he does run in 2020. Would be a Republican landslide. When Holder opens his mouth….just consider the source!!!!!!

    How is telling people to kick somebody not advocating violence? Where are all of the liberal ass nuggets that troll this site to weigh in on this one? What is going to be their excuse for this call to violence?
