MURRIETA, Calif. (AP) - A Southern California congressman has some rough language to describe President Donald Trump - but in a flattering way.

Republican Rep. Duncan Hunter used a profane seven-letter term for part of the human anatomy to describe the president in remarks to a group of party members last week.

But Hunter went on to say Trump is one of their own.

The San Diego Union-Tribune reported Monday (https://bit.ly/2wMTdCD) that the remark at a Murrieta, California, sports bar Friday was received mostly favorably by the Riverside County Young Republicans.

Responding to a question from the audience Friday, Hunter said Trump “is just like he is on TV.”

He said, “He’s an a––, but he’s our a––.”

The comment was confirmed by Hunter’s office.

Hunter was an early supporter of Trump’s candidacy.
