TEXAS REPUBLICAN ON GUARDIAN JOURNALIST: “THE LEFT HAS PRECIPITATED THIS TENSE, CONFRONTATIONAL APPR

U.S. Congressman Trent Franks (R-TX) appears to have blamed the Guardian’s Ben Jacobs for being body slammed by Montana congressional candidate Greg Gianforte (R).

While speaking to MSNBC, Mr. Franks said, “The left has precipitated this tense, confrontational approach throughout the country in recent months.”

Mr. Jacobs was body slammed by the congressional candidate following a series of questions regarding the CBO score of Trumpcare. The candidate picked up the reporter, bodyslammed him, and then proceeded to punch him according to witnesses.

Mr. Gianforte soon fled the scene.

He has been charged with a criminal offense for attacking Mr. Jacobs.
