Republican candidate charged with assault after 'body-slamming' Guardian reporter
The Republican candidate for Montana’s congressional seat has been charged with misdemeanor assault after he is alleged to have slammed a Guardian reporter to the floor on the eve of the state’s special election, breaking his glasses and shouting: “Get the hell out of here.”
Ben Jacobs, a Guardian political reporter, was asking Greg Gianforte, a tech millionaire endorsed by Donald Trump, about the Republican healthcare plan when the candidate allegedly “body-slammed” the reporter.
Next week we'll hear about Paul Ryan straight up pulling a pile driver on a sweet old lady who asked him to help her cross the street. Because asking for handouts gets you THE PAIN. Only he probably won't even be charged with a crime because he's not just a candidate in a Montana election.
What the fuck kind of world are we living in right now lol?
