Democrat Alabama State Rep. John Rogers attacked Donald Trump Jr. on Thursday in response to Trump Jr.’s criticisms of his horrifying abortion remarks earlier in the week by stating that Trump Jr. should have been aborted because he is “retarded.”
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.”
"He's evidently retarded or crazy."

In an interview on Thursday, Rogers responded to Trump Jr.’s criticisms in an interview with WVTM 13, saying: “That’s an honor. Thank God. Right on … Him being born is the very good defense that I have for abortion. His mother should’ve aborted him when he was born, and then he wouldn’t have made that stupid statement.”
“He’s retarded or crazy, Donald Trump’s son. I knew he was crazy,” Rogers added. “The best defense I’ve got for abortion right there, looking at him.”

Andy Surabian, spokesman for Donald Trump Jr., 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.
