GOP Candidate Charged With Assault on Reporter as Newspapers Pull Endorsements

David Weigel – The Washington Post:

Republican congressional candidate Greg Gianforte was charged late Wednesday with misdemeanor assault after witnesses said he “body-slammed” a reporter for the Guardian who had been trying to ask him about the GOP’s health-care bill.

After so much excuse-making and apologia for Donald Trump, the GOP should find defending Representative Gianforte’s behavior easy going. What’s a little body-slamming when the target is a fake-news spewing, America-hating liberal?

I’m practicing my irony. The GOP has fallen so far down it must be hard to see daylight from where the party now stands.
