GOP House Candidate Allegedly ‘Body-Slams’ Reporter from Left-wing Media outlet

A reporter for the left-wing newspaper The Guardian alleged Wednesday that he was body-slammed and had his glasses broken by a Republican congressional candidate fighting for an open House seat in Montana. 

The alleged incident occurred Wednesday evening when Ben Jacobs — a politics reporter for the U.K.-based outlet — asked Greg Gianforte, who is running for the open House seat vacated by Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke, about the Congressional Budget Office score on the Republican health care plan. 

According to an audio recording of the incident, which took place at Gianforte’s campaign headquarters in Bozeman, Montana, Jacobs is cut off by Gianforte, who tells him: “We’ll talk to you about that later.” When Jacobs follows up, saying there may not be time later, Gianforte tells him to “talk to Shane,” apparently referring to campaign spokesman Shane Scanlon. 

When Jacobs attempts to ask another question, there is a loud crashing sound on the recording, followed by Gianforte yelling: “I’m sick and tired of you guys. The last guy who came in here you did the same thing. Get the hell out of here.”  More.....

Well, if this happened then I'm guessing is was provoked. The left is very good at setting this stuff up and crying like little (insert adjective here).

Have a fabulous day. ☺
