WASHINGTON – President Trump at a rally in Montana Thursday praised the state’s congressman for body slamming a reporter — and said the assault helped him win a seat in the US House.
Speaking to a Missoula event, Trump showered GOP Rep. Greg Gianforte with praise and recalled the candidate assaulting Guardian reporter Ben Jacobs last year for trying to ask a question.
“Any guy that can do a body slam, he’s my kind of guy,” Trump said to applause. “I shouldn’t say that — (but) there’s nothing to be embarrassed about.”
Trump said he initially thought Gianforte’s act of violence would hurt his election chances, but “then I said ‘well, wait a minute, I know Montana pretty well, I think it might help him.’ And it did!” Trump said. “He’s a great guy. Tough cookie.”
For his part, Gianforte took the stage to cheers. “Mr. President, thank you for giving us hope again,” he said.
The difference is that Republicans like and applaud this kind of thing.
They want to physically beat the people they don’t agree with.
Even if they don’t say it out loud.
Oh, the hypocrisy! Tonight, Derp Vader stopped his "violent left-wing mob" gaslighting just long enough to express his real feelings, heaping praise on a Republican politician for body slamming reporter Ben Jacobs.
Published an hour ago by Trump's typically supportive hometown paper:
For all of you Trump supporters out there giving your concern trolling all in support of the GOP mid-term propaganda strategy — ouch. Quick! Denounce! Denounce!
Too late. You're all supporters of Donito Trumpolini's blackshirts now.
How many Republican friends do you have for you to come to this conclusion?
Not a lot anymore. Most of them threatened me because I think differently than they do.
The left doesn’t have militia groups training to suppress the right wing.
The left wasn’t just caught on a rooftop with a bunch of guns overlooking a protest. Leftists didn’t leave a meeting at a Democrat headquarters and run through the streets beating on people.
This doesn’t mean the democrats are good, just that Trumpism has sunken the Republican Party even lower than the sewer the democrats inhabit.
You don’t have to be psychic to see the writing on the wall.
