Greg-Gianforte
The Republican candidate to fill Montana’s only seat in the U.S. House of Representatives allegedly slammed a reporter to the ground at his campaign headquarters the day before the election.

Ben Jacobs, a reporter for the Guardian, wrote on Twitter Wednesday evening that Greg Gianforte “just body slammed [sic] me and broke my glasses.”

The paper later posted audio recorded by a local TV crew of the altercation between Jacobs and Gianforte, which took place at the candidate’s campaign headquarters in Bozeman.

In the audio, Jacobs attempts to ask Gianforte a question about the CBO scoring of House Republicans’ plan to repeal and replace ObamaCare.

    If the middle-aged man in the photo was able to body slam a reporter, the reporter must be a wimp. Elect him, Montana; sounds like he will be able to fight liberals for you.

    Well it seems the witness to this is walking back the story now! That’s like the DemonRATS walking back the Russian, Trump collusion story. It’s still fun watching the DemonRATS blow themselves up!

    WHAT DO YOU BET THAT THIS IS JUST ANOTHER LIE TO DISCREDIT THE REPUBLICAN PARTY. FIRST HE WAS NOT INVITED TO THIS PLACE, SECOND HE WAS TOLD TO LEAVE, THIRD HE DID NOT. SO, HE SHOULD HAVE BEEN BODY SLAMMED AND ARRESTED FOR TRESSPASSING.

    FROM A REGISTERED DEMOCRAT, BUT I AM AN AMERICAN FIRST, PROUDLY, I VOTED FOR TRUMP. I AM 86 AND HAVE NEVER SEEN A MORE QUALIFIED PERSON TO BE PRESIDENT.

    TRUMP IS THE PRESIDENT OF THE USA AND CAN DE-CLASSIFY ANYTHING HE WANTS TO REGARDING GET THE JOB DONE. HE NEEDS TO FIRE EVERYONE CONNECTED TO THE DEMOCRATS AND REALLY INVESTIGATE THE BELOW.

    EVERY ONE AND THIS GOVERNMENT HAD BETTER WORRY ABOUT THE MUSLIMS HERE AT HOME ESPECIALLY THE 5 CAMPS IN NORTH VA. CLOSE TO WASHINGTON.

    PUBLIC LAW 414, PAGE 2, SECTION 212, WAS PASSED IN 1952 THAT BANS ALL PEOPLE TRYING TO DESTROY OUR COUNTY, AND MUSLIMS QUALIF TO BE DEPORTED.

    READ THE QURAN, THEIR BIBLE.

    COULD IT BE THAT OBAMA ALONG WITH HILLIARY AND THE NEWS MEDIA, HAVE SET US UP FOR HIM TO LEAD A MUSLIM INVASION OF OUR COUNTRY? IF NOT,

    WHY ARE THERE 5 MUSLIM CAMPS IN N. VIRGINA, CLOSE TO DC. (TAKE OVER WASHINGTON, COULD BE) WE WILL HAVE A LOT OF HEADLESS POLITICIANS IF SO.

    WHY TRY AND BUY UP ALL AMMO AND TAKE OUR GUNS.

    WHY ALLOW IN EXCESS OF 36 MUSLIM CAMPS. (PERHAPS HUNDREDS)

    (BUILD A FEMA CAMP IN EVERY STATE? SOME STATE HAS MORE THAN ONE. BUILT AND SUPPORTED BY YOUR TAX MONEY.

    WHY, WHILE IN OFFICE, DID HE SET HIS CABINET WITH MOSTLY MUSLIMS.

    WHY WAS HILLIARY’S TOP AIDE A RADICAL MUSLIM,

    WHY IS THE DEMOCRAT PARTY FOR A OPEN BORDER. COULD IT BE TO GET FREE DOPE, GOODGLE, THE NEW CLINTON CHRONICLES 2015 AND LISTEN TO IT ALL.

    LAST WHY, DID OBAMA SEND BILLIONS TO HIS MUSLIM FRIENDS.

    I am surprised this doesn’t happen more. The reporters stick phones in the face of people and ask and demand answers to demeaning questions. They insult and verbally attack, then hide behind the constitution like the cowards and wimps they are.

  • Leslie Woodhull says:

    I don’t feel sorry for the poor little reporter. Have you seen how they’re just like pit bulls yapping, yapping at people and how they get in their face?? The guy was just pushing past someone who would not move out of the way!!

  • RB says:

    From reports I’ve seen elsewhere, the reporter pushed his way into the office, shoved the microphone in Gianforte’s face. The reporter is obviously making it sound worse that it was.
    Many a reporter has been known for instigating such an incident just to get a news story. This may be one of those cases.
    Granted Gianforte should have never even touched the reporter, but when you’re accosted by a bunch of reporters trying to get you to make a comment so that they can twist it around and report it, I can see why it happened.
    There is no excuse though, so pay the reporter for his glasses and let’s move on to more important things.
