President Trump praises Montana lawmaker who body slammed reporter



President Donald Trump, speaking at a rally in Montana, praised Republican Rep. Greg Gianforte who body slammed a reporter last year, saying the lawmaker was “my guy.”

Trump, speaking at a rally in Montana, said Rep. Greg Gianforte, who pleaded guilty to assaulting a reporter who asked him a question, was a good guy.

“Greg is smart and, by the way, never wrestle him,” the president said, motioning as though he was slamming someone to the ground. “Any guy that can do a body slam — he’s my guy.”

He added Gianforte was a “great guy” and a “tough cookie.”

    TOO BAD caitlin jenner didn't get out of her/his vehicle that was driving fast to avoid a reporter, and do a "formerly bruce" body slam on them instead of driving WAY TOO FAST while towing a jet ski and in traffric.Maybe that poor woman would still be alive if the tranny narcissist wasn't so paranoid about being photographed before his "big reveal".

    I voted for the guy and can see that he’s been great for the country. But this is dumb, especially right before the midterms. The left is the party of political violence and mob rule, not us.

    Trump loves violence against journalists ! He loves torture,remember ? He's ok with kashoggi death (A Washington Post reporter) He is siding with the Saudi terrorists as an enemy of the media (except fox news).
    Trump is profiting off the Saudis and won't rock the money boat even if someone was drawn and quartered by his buddies ! He probably has built a torture chamber below the oval orifice with a trap door in front of his desk to drop people down into the dungeon. Trump is a sick megalomaniac !

    Unindicted co-conspirator. Promoting violence. This man should be reported to Human Rights Watch. Add to the list. There could be more bodies piling up before this POTUS is FINISHED, Unindicted co-conspirator. Sanctions on this POTUS, Unindicted co-conspirator, inciting death to Journalists. A Right protected in the USA, by the constitution, but not by this POTUS.

    An anguished question from a Trump supporter: "Why do liberals think Trump supporters are stupid?"

    The serious answer: Here’s what we really think about Trump supporters – the rich, the poor, the malignant and the innocently well-meaning, the ones who think and the ones who don't…

    That when you saw a man who had owned a fraudulent University, intent on scamming poor people, you thought "Fine."

    That when you saw a man who had made it his business practice to stiff his creditors, you said, "Okay."

    That when you heard him proudly brag about his own history of sexual abuse, you said, "No problem."

    That when he made up stories about seeing muslim-Americans in the thousands cheering the destruction of the World Trade Center, you said, "Not an issue."

    That when you saw him brag that he could shoot a man on Fifth Avenue and you wouldn't care, you chirped, "He sure knows me."

    That when you heard him illustrate his own character by telling that cute story about the elderly guest bleeding on the floor at his country club, the story about how he turned his back and how it was all an imposition on him, you said, "That's cool!"

    That when you saw him mock the disabled, you thought it was the funniest thing you ever saw.

    That when you heard him brag that he doesn't read books, you said, "Well, who has time?"

    That when the Central Park Five were compensated as innocent men convicted of a crime they didn't commit, and he angrily said that they should still be in prison, you said, "That makes sense."

    That when you heard him tell his supporters to beat up protesters and that he would hire attorneys, you thought, "Yes!"

    That when you heard him tell one rally to confiscate a man's coat before throwing him out into the freezing cold, you said, "What a great guy!"

    That you have watched the parade of neo-Nazis and white supremacists with whom he curries favor, while refusing to condemn outright Nazis, and you have said, "Thumbs up!"

    That you hear him unable to talk to foreign dignitaries without insulting their countries and demanding that they praise his electoral win, you said, "That's the way I want my President to be."

    That you have watched him remove expertise from all layers of government in favor of people who make money off of eliminating protections in the industries they're supposed to be regulating and you have said, "What a genius!"

    That you have heard him continue to profit from his businesses, in part by leveraging his position as President, to the point of overcharging the Secret Service for space in the properties he owns, and you have said, "That's smart!"

    That you have heard him say that it was difficult to help Puerto Rico because it was the middle of water and you have said, "That makes sense."

    That you have seen him start fights with every country from Canada to New Zealand while praising Russia and quote, "falling in love" with the dictator of North Korea, and you have said, "That's statesmanship!"

    That Trump separated children from their families and put them in cages, managed to lose track of 1500 kids. has opened a tent city incarceration camp in the desert in Texas – he explains that they’re just “animals” – and you say, “well, ok then.”

    That you have witnessed all the thousand and one other manifestations of corruption and low moral character and outright animalistic rudeness and contempt for you, the working American voter, and you still show up grinning and wearing your MAGA hats and threatening to beat up anybody who says otherwise.

    What you don't get, Trump supporters in 2018, is that succumbing to frustration and thinking of you as stupid may be wrong and unhelpful, but it's also…hear me…charitable.

    Because if you're NOT stupid, we must turn to other explanations, and most of them are less flattering.
