Former First Lady Michelle Obama famously said at the 2016 Democratic National Convention that she and her husband taught their daughters about people who act cruelly or like bullies, "When they go low, we go high." But former Attorney General Eric Holder, who served during the Obama administration, changed that this weekend while campaigning for Democrats in Georgia. Holder told the crowd, "Michelle says, 'When they go low, we go high.' No, no. When they go low, we kick ’em." He continued, "That’s what this new Democratic Party is about. We’re proud as hell to be Democrats. We’re willing to fight for the ideals of the Democratic Party. . . . We’re not in this just to make a statement -- we’re in this to win." A few minutes later, Holder clarified his remarks, saying, "Now, when I say, you know, 'we kick ’em,' I don’t mean we do anything inappropriate. We don’t do anything illegal, but we got to be tough." Holder's comments echoed what Stormy Daniels' publicity-loving attorney Michael Avenatti said while speaking in August in Iowa after having expressed interest in possibly running for president in 2020. Avenatti said, "When they go low, I say, we hit harder. I believe that our party, the Democratic Party, must be a party that fights fire with fire."
