Alabama Rep. John Rogers doubled down on his controversial statements on abortion. This time he fired back at Donald Trump Jr. and called him "retarded" and said his mother should have aborted him.
A vote in Alabama passed on Tuesday by a vote of 74-3 that will criminalize almost all abortion in the state.
Before the vote went down, John Rogers, a Democrat, made a very controversial statement opposing the vote when he said, "Some kids are unwanted. So you kill them now or you kill them later."
Donald Trump Jr. took to Twitter to blast the Democrats' stance on abortion. "This is stomach curling and makes Ralph Northam look like a moderate on abortion."
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. https://t.co/KchZfqvQMK

While doing an interview with WVTM13 on Thursday, Rogers fired back at Trump Jr:
More on the story from Daily Mail:
'That proves I’m right to make a scene about abortion, him being born — that’s proof right there. Him being born - that’s a very very good defense I have for abortion.
'His mother should have aborted him when he was born and he wouldn’t have made that stupid statement, right?
'He’s evidently retarded. Uh, crazy. Donald Trump’s son, I know there’s something wrong with that boy,' the embattled Rep continued.
He joked that it was an 'honor' to even be rebuked by Don Jr on social media.
Alabama Rep. John Rogers makes insane statement after insane statement. It appears the 78-year-old Democrat has overstayed his time as an elected official and needs to be voted out as soon as possible.
