Former Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale hospitalized after trying to harm self

President Trump’s former campaign manager Brad Parscale was reportedly hospitalized Sunday after threatening to harm himself while armed with guns inside his Florida home.

Parscale’s wife called police to their Fort Lauderdale home, telling authorities her husband was suicidal and had firearms, police told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.

Fort Lauderdale Police Chief Karen Dietrich told the newspaper that Parscale, who was demoted by Trump in mid-July, was taken to the hospital without incident.

“We went out and it was very short. We went and got him help,” Dietrich said.

Parscale, who is still a senior advisor on the Trump campaign, was taken by authorities under the state’s Baker Act. The legislation enables police to detain anybody who may harm themselves or others, the report said.

Trump campaign spokesman Tim Murtaugh reacted to the development in a Sunday night statement. 

“Brad Parscale is a member of our family and we all love him. We are ready to support him and his family in any way possible,” said Murtaugh.

“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.”
