Congressman Apologizes For Rhetoric After Interview


Congressman Dan Goldman (D-NY) recently appeared on MSNBC with former Biden Press Secretary Jen Psaki and they were discussing former President Donald Trump.

The pair was discussing comments the former President made to ABC News reporter Jonathan Karl. Trump had told Karl in an interview that he wanted to go up to the Capitol on 1/6 to stop what was going on but the Secret Service forbid it.

Goldman went on to say that the former President’s “rhetoric is really getting dangerous.”

However, he then said that “he has to be eliminated.”

In the same breath of warning against dangerous rhetoric Goldman uses it himself.

The following day Goldman tried to talkback his statement.

“Yesterday on TV, I mistakenly used the wrong word to express the importance for America that Donald Trump doesn’t become President again,” he wrote on social media. “While he must be defeated, I certainly wish no harm to him and do not condone political violence. I apologize for the poor choice of words.”
