    But the snowflakes are whining about this guy wrestling with the reporter. Where were they when Trump supporters were being attacked? Not one protest from them on that issue. For them its totally okay that the right gets beaten, but grab a guy and push him around is totally wrong. I showed the video and that was marginal. Yet the media called it 'body slamming'. What is that btw?
    Trump's endorsement of violence reaches new level: He may pay legal fees for assault suspect

    When Donald Trump said Sunday that he might pay the legal fees of a man charged with hitting a protester in the face at one of his rallies, it was the latest of many occasions when the leading Republican candidate for president appeared to condone or accept violence by supporters.

    Do you for get so soon? Silly question.

    My bias to what? I've given no reply to anyone on anything but the topic at hand.

    You now seem to be splitting hairs over this. She gets a pass for punching a uniformed police officer in the performance of his duties. She knew she passed the metal detector and security check point without stopping. If the police officer had a question, shouldn't she have just stopped and answered it for him? Instead, her first reaction on being touched inside the Capitol building is to try and punch out the guy.

    We know in what's his name's case this reporter was in his face badgering him first. I'm not excusing his action, but at least he simply didn't haul off and punch the guy out the second he walked up like McKinney did.

    Her first defense was that the police should have known who she was on sight. That sank like a rock. Then she started making excuses, followed by playing the race and gender card. I think that makes her actions even worse. She wouldn't simply apologize on the spot to the officer and try and make amends for a mistake. Instead she doubled down on it and claimed it was all the officer's fault.
    I didn't address your random off topic subject at all?

    If this guy weren't running for oriface he would have pressed charges... politics has everything to do with it... instead, he apologized profusely & still got elected.

    Now THAT is a scumbag!

    Didn't see that comin, now, did ya, mate...

    And if it weren't for politics, we wouldn't even be talkin about it!

    I am thrilled that the lackey of that foreign Socialist rag got what he deserved. In fact, but disrupting another media outlet's interview and jamming his clammy hand into that man's face, he should have got worse.

    I am very happy that the voters of Montana aren't the fainting Goats that voters in other parts of the world are, and they can see through what this foreign operative was trying to do there.

    Face it, there is a reason why Dentists and even Congressmen are more popular than reporters today.

    A man assaulted another who had not made any violent move toward him whatsoever in front of neutral witnesses who didn't even know the identity of the reporter. He was apparently told he would be briefed later twice, but persisted and was violently assaulted.

    Blaming a reporter for a violent politician who simply could have asked the man to leave or called police to do so is ridiculous.

    You're pushing some weird point that doesn't make sense. Are you saying it's fine to assault anyone who enters your office without express permission? Because the initial response to the reporter were not demands to leave, but placating. This does not seem to be a case of trespassing at all and I see no one claiming as much outside this thread.

    Fine, be obtuse.

    My question was asked because I wanted to see your opinion of that party untainted by the following:

    Cynthia McKinney, when she was in Congress physically assaulted a Capitol Police officer in the performance of his duties. It was by almost every account unprovoked. She was charged with a felony but it was later dropped. She claimed rather vociferously that it was all about her race and gender. That ended when she saw her poll ratings at home plummet. Her home district went to the polls and voted her out of office in the next election cycle.

    She then ran for President on the Green Party ticket. She still offers crazy lady explanations on YouTube for the incident.

    Do you think someone like that should be a candidate for President?

    The reason I ask is your posts sound like you're judge and jury on this incident and have no desire to see the outcome of the charge in court.
