On May 24th, Greg Gianforte, the Republican candidate for Montana’s Congressional seat, allegedly ‘body slammed’ a reporter from The Guardian after being asked questions about his support for the AHCA. The story was confirmed by The Guardian and Fox News who were both present for the alleged attack. Gianforte has been charged with misdemeanor assault.
The special congressional election is today, and it is unclear how this will impact the outcome of the race which was already looking to be very close between Gianforte and Democrat Rob Quist. But one thing is for certain: The Internet doesn’t look like they are forgiving him any time soon.
People are already turning the attack into mock political ads.
The nation’s still in protest and shock over Donald Trump’s Presidential win. People expected the disdain for his victory to settle down after a few weeks but it seems that people’s concerns are growing more and more with each cabinet choice the president-elect’s administration makes.
And as his time in office draws closer a reality is setting in: Trump has made a lot of huge campaign promises, many of them that he’s already going back on. There are a lot of people, both Democrat and Republican, who aren’t quick to let him forget those promises.
SNL hasn’t forgotten either, and used some of Trump’s biggest campaign platforms in last night’s hilarious cold open. And Trump was absolutely freaking out once he realized he had to put his money where his mouth is.
I’m scared/excited to see how this Presidency turns out.
