    So does body slamming a reporter work for or against you in a Montana Congressional race?

    Sounds like he has taken a page from the Al Franken book.

    Interesting. I've never heard of Al physically assaulting a member of the free press for doing his job. Tell me more.

    PS: Gianforto has been charged with assault.

    I see all sorts of opportunities for a congressional Thunderdome if Gianforte gets elected. "Two men enter/one man leaves."

    Something like this was bound to happen. When you have one political party in this country which holds such contempt for the Fourth Estate. A sitting President who calls the media enemies of the people. And mouthed off during the campaign how he would like to punch people in the face. (see link below) This is what you get.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l0rBMxF0i3c

    Then you have that response by the Gianforte campaign labeling this guy a "liberal reporter". As if that justifies these actions. My biggest concern is some on the fringe will cheer this sort of animal behavior.

    If you don't like the free press in America. Move to Russia or North Korea.
    The MSM has earned the contempt in which it is held. The MSM is the enemy of a large segment of the people. However, blaming Trump for this is ridiculous. The candidate is responsible for his own actions.

    BHO urged his supporters to punch back twice as hard, to punish their enemies and reminded them that when they bring a knife, we bring a gun.

    Trump is only telling the truth about the MSM dwelling on trivial matters like his wife slapping away his hands ectra and never reporting anything that He has done to try and make things better.

    Something fans of early voting may want to consider - approximately 70% of the Montana votes were in before this incident.

    Looks like it worked for him. He raised $100k after the news reports on the alleged assault and won the special election by around 8 points.

    And, his "community activists" in Chicago took him very seriously on that gun stuff.

    Interesting flashback to a tweet from the "journalist" who was allegedly body slammed:

    Ben Jacobs‏ Verified account
    @Bencjacobs

    Left, right and center, straight news and opinion, journalists at CPAC have one thing in common, the overwhelming urge to punch Benji Backer
    A reminder that for the Left and the MSM (I repeat myself) political violence is only unacceptable when committed by Republicans.

    The reporter who was allegedly body slammed had previously embraced just this sort of behavior.

    Dems will condemn the voters of Montana because he won after the incident. Meanwhile they will ignore the fact that MA voters continued to send Teddy to the Senate after leaving a woman, not his wife, to die at Chappaquidik

    He did not encourage a killing like BLM groups that want to kill Cops and the Dems refuse to denounce like BHO and HRC.

    almost any behavior can be explained away by precedent.

    spiraling out of control.

    Gianforte convicted, will do 20 hours of community service and pay $385 fine.

    He also donated $50,000 to the Committee to Protect Journalists.

    There are not many of those so the donation should go a long way in helping the few.
