Palm Beach County Commissioner Burt Aaronson said at a Democratic Party fundraising dinner on Saturday that Republicans deserve to be thrown in jail for trying to destroy the country in hopes of defeating President Barack Obama.
“You know, if a ballplayer threw a game and they get caught, they go to jail,” he said, according to the Palm Beach Post. “Well, what are we going to do to the Republicans who are throwing the country?
“They’re throwing our country, and they all should be put in jail for what they’re doing, because they’re destroying our country, because they said at the beginning our one mission is to get rid of President Obama. That was their mission. They don’t care how much they destroy other people. They don’t care whether you go to work. They don’t care about anything.
“All they want to do is destroy the president,” Aaronson continued. “And in destroying the president of the United States, you destroy our country. They should be put in jail, each and every one of them, for throwing the country.”
Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has said that his “single most important” goal was defeating Obama.
“That’s my single most important political goal, along with every active Republican in the country,” he said.
