PHOENIX — And they said President Donald Trump was fiery on Twitter.
U.S. Congressman Ruben Gallego (D-Ariz.) took to social media late Saturday night and slammed President Trump as a “psychopath” for his response to this week’s shooting in Florida.
“You are such a psychopath that you have to make even the death of 17 children about you,” Gallego wrote.
The Democrat, who represents Arizona’s seventh congressional district, added that “America will regret the day you were ever born.”
This wasn’t the first time Gallego called the president a psychopath — and, considering the attention he has received for doing so, probably won’t be the last.
After a producer from MSNBC claimed in August 2017 that President Trump receives a daily media-clip folder containing positive coverage of himself, Gallego responded: “So I would have my staff do this, but I am not a psychopath.”
Gallego previously served as a state representative for Arizona’s 16th legislative district from 2011 to 2014. He became a member of Congress in 2015.
