Democratic Alabama State Rep. John Rogers attacks President Trump’s son
Democratic Alabama State Rep. John Rogers issued a vile attack against Donald Trump Jr. on Thursday by stating that the president’s son should have been “aborted” because he is “retarded.”
Rogers made the statement in response to the Don Jr. criticizing the Democrat’s horrifying abortion remarks earlier in the week.
On Tuesday, Rogers said: “Some kids are unwanted, so you kill them now or you kill them later.
“You bring them in the world unwanted, unloved, you send them to the electric chair. So, you kill them now or you kill them later.”

Trump Jr. responded by tweeting: “This is stomach curling and makes Ralph Northam look like a moderate on abortion.
“Every Democrat running for President needs to be asked where they stand on this.
“The extreme turn we’ve seen from Dems on abortion recently is truly sickening.”

Rogers was asked about Trump Jr.’s response to his initial abortion comments.
During an interview with WVTM 13, Rogers laughed, and launched into a monologue that seemed to suggest that maybe Trump Jr. should’ve been aborted, and calling the president’s son “retarded.”
Some parts of his answer are a bit unclear, but here is a rough transcript:
“Hey, that’s an honor. Donald Trump Jr. said that, thank God. Right on. That’s how I know I’m right.
“Because I don’t know nothing he’s been right on since he’s been here.
“That proves the right to make a decision about abortion. Him being born, that proves the right.
“That’s a very, very good defense I have for abortion right there, him. … looked at him and said a woman should’ve aborted him when he was born … he wouldn’t have made that stupid statement, right?
“So his parents made a decision for him. That’s fresh proof I’ve got that the mother ought to have the right to have an abortion.
“They made a decision to have him, didn’t they?
“They could’ve aborted him. But they made a decision to keep him.
“Because he’s evidently retarded. Or crazy.
“Donald Trump’s son, I know it’s something wrong with the boy. I can look at him and tell something’s wrong with him.
“That’s the best defense I’ve got for abortion right there is looking at him.”
Andy Surabian, Donald Trump Jr.’s spokesman, responded to Rogers’ vile remarks in a statement to The Daily Wire:
“Sadly, vile comments like this have become par for the course for the Democrat Party.
“They’ve become so deranged by President Trump’s victory that celebrating late-term abortion, support for eugenics and even calling for the death of political opponents is becoming their standard operating procedure.
“I hope every elected Democrat in the country has the common decency and moral courage to disavow these types of grotesque statements from members of their party.”
