    Democratic Maine Lawmaker Sorry for 'Aggressively Sarcastic' Anti-Trump Post
    WCSH
    Maine Rep. Scott Hamann.

    A Maine Democratic lawmaker says he regrets an "aggressively sarcastic and inappropriate" Facebook post criticizing President Donald Trump.

    Rep. Scott Hamann on Tuesday called Trump a "half-term president, at most, especially if I ever get within 10 feet."

    Hamann says he shouldn't have used such language and was trying to make a point about the state of political discourse.

    Maine GOP Chairwoman Demi Kouzounas told reporters that Hamann's expletive-laced post was an implied death threat against the Republican president.

    Kouzounas called on Democratic House Speaker Sara Gideon to act.

    Gideon didn't immediately respond to a request for comment Wednesday.
