New Jersey millionaire Greg Gianforte with ties to two U.S. sanctioned Russian companies decided to choke Guardian Journalist Ben Jacobs before body slamming him to the floor and kicking him in the arm yesterday in Montana. Jacobs suffered an injured elbow in the attack and his glasses were broken. Greg Gianforte is the Republican candidate for the sole U.S. House of Representatives seat in the western state. Jacobs attempted to ask Gianforte about the CBO report released earlier in the day confirming Trumpcare will kick 23 million people off of their health coverage and make senior citizens pay 800 percent more so that rich people can get more tax cuts.
Greg Gianforte has support from President Piss Pig to take over the seat left vacant by Ryan Zinke, the new Secretary of the Interior. Gianforte believes in creationism and doesn’t think anyone should ever retire because retirement isn’t in the Bible.

Per the 911 recording of Ben Jacob’s phone call to emergency, the Guardian journalist went to the hospital in an ambulance and Gianforte was charged with misdemeanor assault. It can’t be ignored that the sheriff leading the investigation into the attack donated $250.00 to Gianforte’s campaign.
The Fat Orange Bitch recorded a robocall for Gianforte yesterday informing Montana residents that he knows what the people of Montana want and need. The real question now as residents of Montana go to the polls today is the assault and media coverage of the attack enough to get Ron Quist elected to the House seat instead of Gianforte? It depends on whether any of what happened yesterday matters. So far, not much has.
Trump spent a year and a half normalizing the idea that the media deserve to be assaulted, insulted and slandered at every possible opportunity. The fact that Gianforte is a suspect in an assault charge will only make him a hero with the redhat brigade. It may not be enough that all of the major newspapers pulled their endorsement last night and the sheriff managed to charge the candidate he supported, requiring him to appear in court early next month to face assault charges. The people who vote for Gianforte today are the same people who chanted “LOCK HER UP” at Piss Pig’s rallies and assaulted protesters while Trump egged them on. It’s become apparent since the fall of 2015 that the people who make up the GOP today are degenerate trash. The sad! part is they don’t care.
The GOP candidate winning one day after bodyslamming a reporter at a rally will be a great chapter in the ongoing "lol nothing matters" saga

We’ll have to wait and see.
