Speaking before pastors at a Memphis church in late July, Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN) urged conservative Congresswoman and Republican Senate candidate Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) to jump off a bridge.
In a newly released video published by the Huffington Post, Cohen is heard mocking Blackburn to attendees of a community prayer breakfast held at Broadway Baptist Church over her support of the White House.
“The big orange president … He’s going to come down here and he is going to endorse Marsha Blackburn, because Marsha Blackburn, if he says, ‘Jump off the Harahan Bridge,’ she’ll jump off the Harahan Bridge,” the Democrat lawmaker said.
The gathering was organized by the Tennessee Democrat Senate candidate Gov.
One week prior, Cohen contended disgraced FBI special agent Peter Strzok should receive a Purple Heart during a heated House Judiciary Committee hearing, where he was asked a series of tough questions from Republican lawmakers about his anti-Trump bias.
