‘Tis true! The candidate’s campaign issued a statement blaming the altercation on a rude and pushy “liberal” reporter. Well, there’s an audio recording that corroborates the reporter’s story. And 3 people with a Fox News crew backed him up.
Get a load of this exchange:
Last month, a voter at a Gianforte town hall pointed out a journalist in the room, called the media “the enemy” and mimed the act of wringing a neck.
Gianforte smiled and pointed at the reporter.
“We have someone right here,” he said, according to the Ravalli Republic. “It seems like there are more of us than there is of him.”

And then it was on to Brussels which Li'l Donnie once called a "hellhole". So yeah, they really love Trump in Belgium, don't you know. Trump was there for a NATO summit. Trump has not had many nice things to say about NATO.
So yeah, this meeting is going to go great.
NATO was ready for Trump. Foreign leaders were instructed not to engage with Li'l Donnie for no more than two minutes which is the limit of Trump's attention span.
Trump reasserted his complaint that other countries in NATO are not paying their fair share of maintaining NATO. Then Trump spent the rest of the summit haggling over the bill, insisting he only had a salad and a glass of water.
Hey, get a load this:
President Donald Trump engaged in some sharp-elbowed diplomacy Thursday when he appeared to shove aside the prime minister of a tiny Balkan country and barge to the front of the pack for a group photo at the NATO summit.
In a video that quickly went viral, an apparently grimacing Trump can be seen placing his right hand on the shoulder of Montenegro prime minister Dusko Markovic and then pushing him aside during the photo op in Brussels.
Well, this is fun.
Oh and there's this:
Trump Reportedly Calls Germans 'Very Bad,' Vows To Stop U.S.-German Car Sales
Well, well, well. Maybe Li'l Donnie will start a war after all. Over Volkswagens? Oh, why not?
There's more to come of Trump's World Tour, brought to you by KFC!
Thanks for dropping by. Until next time, remember to be good to one another.
