The former attorney general was campaigning for Stacey Abrams for Georgia governor over the weekend, when he surprised the audience by saying that Michelle Obama’s famous phrase “When they go low, we go high” is no longer relevant in the heated political climate of today.
Instead, Holder suggested that Democrats get down and dirty.
Holder’s words were welcomed with a round of cheers and applause from the enthusiastic audience. “That’s what this new Democratic Party is about,” he added.
Later in his speech, Holder attempted to tone himself down, saying it wasn’t physical violence he meant, but never explained what it was.
