President Trump Praises Congressman for Body Slamming Reporter

Posted on October 19, 2018

U.S. Congressman Greg Gianforte from Montana body slammed a reporter from The Guardian in 2017. Gianforte later plead guilty to assault. President Trump is now praising this abhorrent behavior. Trump said at a rally, "Any guy that can do a body slam… he's my guy." President Trump also mimicked the body slam motion.

It is not good that the U.S. President is condoning violence against the media.
