McAuliffe says he'd punch Trump if he 'got in my space'

2018 General Assembly session set to kick off Outgoing Governor McAuliffe offers Final State of the Commonwealth

Terry McAuliffe talked tough about President Trump on MSNBC Thursday night, fantasizing to an admiring Chris Matthews about punching out the commander-in-chief.

Terry McAuliffe told a national television audience he'd knock President Donald Trump to the floor if the president ever tried to intimidate him.

The "Hardball" host asked McAuliffe what he might do if Trump ever "leaned over the back of you" in a debate, as he did when he was squaring off against Hillary Clinton in a 2016 debate. He says he would have reacted differently than his friend did.

"Listen, this guy got in my space-you want to get in my space, I've always said, Chris, you punch me I'm going to punch you back twice as hard", McAuliffe said. McAuliffe replied that if Trump got in his space he would punch him. "And it wouldn't be hard to do it but you know, this guy thinks he can intimidate everybody. It's disgraceful. It's embarrassing", McAuliffe said.

McAuliffe glossed over shortcomings - like a failed development deal with a Chinese company which cost the state's taxpayers $1.4 million or promises that new express lanes on I-66 wouldn't be exorbitant.

Matthews glowingly responded that McAuliffe "sounds like an Irish-American politician" and complimented his "performance" on the program.

In a letter to U.S. Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke, Governor-elect Ralph Northam today requested that Virginia be excluded from the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management's plans to expand offshore drilling off of all U.S. waters.

McAuliffe leaves office on Saturday and says he is "taking nothing off the table" when it comes to a possible presidential bid in 2020.
