Trump just celebrated the beating of a political reporter in unhinged Montana rally

Mod: You don't think he is really going to do anything about the Saudis, do you? Last night was just another quite obvious indication that Trump is just stalling.

Trump just celebrated the beating of a political reporter in unhinged Montana rally (Washington Press link): In the same week that he refused to condemn the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for brutally torturing and dismembering a journalist while he was still alive before murdering him and smuggling his body away in small pieces, President Donald Trump openly celebrated the assault of an American journalist. After the President of the United States spent a great deal of time utterly confusing and bewildering his Missoula, Montana rally audience by going on incoherent tangents about anything and everything under the sun (“I love these hangars. I love hangers. There’s nothing like a hangar!”), and openly promoted disgustingly racist and anti-Semitic conspiracy theories, his attention turned to the state’s one House Representative, Republican Greg Gianforte.

Gianforte was the subject of a huge scandal last year after he body-slammed Guardian reporter Ben Jacobs just days before the election, breaking his glasses and sending him to the floor after Jacobs asked him some questions he didn’t like.

Trump, who has hinted at how much this titillated him before in past, crossed the line and openly celebrated the assault of a reporter. Later on, he came back to the assault again, using the opportunity to brag about how he could take former Vice-President Joe Biden in a fight, who famously once said he’d like to take Trump “behind the gym and beat the hell out of him” for his comments about women.

This marks a disturbing escalation of his violent rhetoric against reporters, and for it to come on the same day that he acknowledged that his buddy Mohammed bin Salman likely murdered a dissident journalist but refused to condemn him for the heinous murder simply reinforces the message to every tin-pot dictator and aspiring fascist around the world: violence against the free press is not only acceptable but a thing to be celebrated and joked about.

    1. Why would he need to visit them.

      Are they enough or something? Just do the job they signed up for. Shouldn’t be there anyway.

    2. All presidents over the last seven decades have visited the troops overseas. It is a sign of respect and honor. Two virtues the fat golf addict clearly lacks.

  7. What do you infer by "doing anything about the Saudis" the killing of Khashoggi has made World News; it is a Saudi issue.
    Nothing new in the International arena of silencing of voices speaking out against perceived "injustices".
    In the United States we don't as a matter of human decency, behead our journalists, we just stop our subscription to that publication. FREEDOM, protect and honor your "rights" that you have in your country.

    1. He was murdered in Turkey. It’s an international issue. Why would you poopoo this?

    2. Khashoggi was an American resident and the employee of an American corporation. But what made it even worse was the Mango Madman insisting that the Saudi royal gang had nothing to do with it when they so obviously do. You should read the news more. That way you won't make an ass of yourself as much as you do.

  11. It is obvious that the President will address the killing of the journalist when all factual information is in.
    The United States will apply "severe" consequences, and the rest of the world will follow and add their own consequences.
    The Saudis have hurt their reputation as a forward moving Nation.

    2. The rest of the works doesn’t ‘follow’ the US anymore. Those days of moral leadership are gone. Even Putin said so yesterday

    3. Surprised 9:25 didn’t use the word “historic.” Always licking Trump's boots.

      Sentence 1: No, it is not “obvious.”

      Sentence 2: No, consequences, if any, won’t be “severe” much less “ “severe” .”

      Sentence 3: No, nations that brutally kill journalists are not “forward moving” even if they finally allow women to drive in 2018.

  12. When were journalists, not "fake" journalists free to express what happens around them?
    Journalists around the world are needed and they display bravery during times where little exhists.
    Journalists fight against their own state sponcered censorship and propaganda, it is important that honest and "real" news is protected and kept free.
