Former Attorney General Eric Holder downplayed his recent comments that urged supporters to “kick” Republican voters when they’re down; accusing the GOP of stoking “fake outrage” to distract from the upcoming midterm elections.
Holder posted his excuse on social media days after video of his violent rhetoric went viral on social media; saying “Ok, stop the fake outrage. I’m obviously not advocating violence. (In fact, when I was AG violent crime in the US was historically low.) I’m saying Republicans are undermining our democracy and Democrats need to be tough, proud and stand up for the values we believe in – the end.”

Holder was speaking with late night comedian Stephen Colbert when he was asked if he was planning a potential showdown against President Trump; telling the comic he’d make his “determination sometime early next year.”
“General Holder, are you seriously considering throwing your hat in the ring in 2020?” asked Colbert.
“Yeah, I’m thinking about it. What I’ve said is that I’d make a determination sometime early next year. What I’m really focused on is the 2020 midterms to try and make sure Democrats take back the Senate, take back the House,” confirmed Holder.
