    Thuggish, animalistic behavior spawned by Cheeto Buffoon's "journalists are enemies of the people" atmosphere.

    Trump placed robocalls this week in support of Gianforte; his duty as a MAN and our supposed leader today is to retract those and denounce Gianforte.

    You're gonna have difficulty generating sympathy for the media. In the race to the bottom of the barrel, its neck and neck between the GOP, the press, and the Congress. Sad.

    A chop to the solar plexus would have been appropriate. Body slamming was over the top, I agree

    The nerve of a reporter asking a GOP candidate about the CBO score for Trumpcare.

    lol that's funny.

    In all seriousness though it's criminal. And I'm sure the authorities will handle it.

    The county sheriff is a Gianforte supporter and donor who just handed him a MISDEMEANOR charge. I imagine that if the Guardian reporter had grabbed Gianforte by the neck, threw him to the ground, and punched him the reporter would be in jail and charged with a lot more than that.

    Have you heard the audio? The reporter sounds like a pussy. "You broke my glasses." People from MT do not take that kind of pussification lightly.

    Montana is a state where the men are men, the women are few and the sheep are nervous.
