Tumultuous Thursday

1a

Trump, Gianforte, Daines, and we know where you can put those thumbs.

The Republican candidate for Montana’s congressional seat slammed a Guardian reporter to the floor on the eve of the state’s special election, breaking his glasses and shouting, “Get the hell out of here.”

Ben Jacobs, a Guardian political reporter, was asking Greg Gianforte, a tech millionaire running for the seat vacated by Ryan Zinke, about the Republican healthcare plan when the candidate allegedly “body-slammed” the reporter.

“He took me to the ground,” Jacobs said by phone from the back of an ambulance. “This is the strangest thing that has ever happened to me in reporting on politics.”

Jacobs subsequently reported the incident to the police. The Gallatin County sheriff’s office is investigating.

A statement by campaign spokesman Shane Scanlon blamed Jacobs for the altercation, saying that he “entered the office without permission, aggressively shoved a recorder in Greg’s face, and began asking badgering questions”.

“Jacobs was asked to leave,” the statement reads. “After asking Jacobs to lower the recorder, Jacobs declined. Greg then attempted to grab the phone that was pushed in his face. Jacobs grabbed Greg’s wrist, and spun away from Greg, pushing them both to the ground.

“It’s unfortunate that this aggressive behavior from a liberal journalist created this scene at our campaign volunteer BBQ.”

    Violence, the centerpiece of American society, another indicator of how stupid America has become voting for the pugger thugs.

    Old Post Office in 26 minutes under the overcast. No wildlife spotted but heard a crow.

      Nice meal and then home in the sunshine. As starting, talked briefly with Joan about pepper and then said hello to Barry the window washer. Round trip was 54 minutes but no wildlife.

      Day 5: 263+54=317 minutes.

    Trump, such an embarrassment. Did you see him push that prime minister to be in front of the group for the cameras? He couldn’t just stay where he was, where he ended up with the group.

    Apparently, his arm-candy wife doesn’t like him at all. As little as she has been around Trump what with living in NYC, she has managed to give us pictures of her…feelings about that man.

    Not that I feel sorry for her, she got what she wanted…she’s made her bed now she has to lie in it.

    I hope there is a day when she speaks, when she starts making her presence known and has interviews, speaks up! For instance, who IS she? No one knows, not yet.

      I cleaned the evaporator coil and resealed the thing for summer. I have been having trouble staying cool personally, body-wise, I’m always cool otherwise, it seems at temps 85 or so I sweat a lot without doing much. I see my druggist dude tomorrow so I can figure out which pill is the culprit, right now I can’t do anything in the heat, I drench my shirt, drips on my glasses, pisses me off, I don’t have time to fool with bum pills so I hope I can get it figured out.

      BIG PHARMA strikes again.
