State Rep. John Rogers (D-Birmingham) has further responded to Donald Trump, Jr.’s criticism of his viral abortion remarks, lashing out at the president’s son in callous fashion and digging himself a further political hole.
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

In an interview with WVTM 13 on Thursday afternoon, Rogers said it was “an honor” that his Tuesday remarks drew a response from Trump, Jr. on Wednesday.
“Thank God, right on,” Rogers said while chuckling. “That lets me know I’m right, ’cause I don’t know nothing he’s been right on since he been here.”
He continued, “That proves I’m right to make a scene about abortion, him being born — that’s proof right there. That’s a very, very good defense I have for abortion right there — him. Look at him. His mother should have aborted him [before] he was born… He wouldn’t have made that stupid statement, right?”
Rogers then alleged Trump, Jr. is “evidently retarded or crazy.”
“Donald Trump’s son, hey, I knew there was something wrong with that boy,” he added.
