Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney (D., N.Y.), a candidate for New York Attorney General, said he doesn’t “give a f—k” what fans of President Donald Trump say about his aggressive rhetoric toward the White House, adding his family is “in the crosshairs of these a—holes.”

Maloney, who is gay and has two adopted children with his husband, released his first TV ad before the Sept. 13 primary election where a narrator called the current political climate a “fight there’s just no running from.”

“I feel like there’s a group of men led by Donald Trump who have shown up in the front yard, and they’re getting ready to tear this house apart,” Maloney says while seated in his kitchen. “And I’m going to stand in the hallway with a baseball bat. Because I don’t have any choice. My kids are upstairs, asleep.”
