Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ) threatened to call the police on a reporter on Capitol Hill when asked to comment on the Green New Deal.
The Daily Caller reporter Henry Rodgers approached the senator at a subway station and asked him if he supported Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez‘s Green New Deal.
“I won’t answer questions to the Daily Caller, period! You’re trash,” Menendez responded. “Don’t keep harassing me anymore or I’ll race to the Capitol Police,” he continued.
Rodgers noted later that he had no prior interaction with Menendez.
