Brad Parscale, a senior advisor to Donald Trump's reelection campaign and its former manager, was hospitalized Sunday after an incident at his Fort Lauderdale home. The South Florida Sun Sentinel reports that Parscale's wife called police and said he was "armed and threatening suicide."
He was taken to Broward Health Medical Center under the Baker Act, which provides for temporary involuntary commitment.
Fort Lauderdale Police Chief Karen Dietrich said the encounter at the house was brief.
"We went out and it was very short. We went and got him help."
Tim Murtaugh, Trump's communications director, immediately blamed the president's political adversaries: "The disgusting, personal attacks from Democrats and disgruntled RINOs have gone too far, and they should be ashamed of themselves for what they've done to this man and his family."
I hope Parscale is on the mend and wish him and his family all the best.
