Stupid and Irresponsible

Remember the candidate who body-slammed a reporter who asked him a question he didn’t like last year during a special election to fill a seat in Congress?

He has a fan:  the president.

As reported by the online publication Roll Call:

President Donald Trump on Thursday praised Montana Rep. Greg Gianforte  for physically assaulting a reporter on the eve of a special election last year.

Addressing a rally in Missoula on his third trip to Montana this year, Trump at first only alluded to the 2017 incident. “Never wrestle him,” he said after calling Gianforte onstage.

But then the president went further.

“Any guy who can do a body slam — he’s my guy,” Trump said to loud cheers.

Our president truly is a demagogue – and an ass.
