Numerous left wing fake news outlets are besieging Montana congressional candidate Greg Gianforte after Ben Jacobs, a goon and agitator hired by the Britain's Guardian toilet paper, attempted to assault the candidate.
On the eve of the special election, Jacobs entered Gianforte's office without invitation during a meeting with another so-called journalist. Jacobs immediately engaged in verbal aggression and came within a distance of the candidate so close as to cause alarm, especially in light of the growing epidemic of leftist violence in the United States. Gianforte engaged in justified self defense to expel the invader from his office.
After the local sheriff cited Gianforte for misdemeanor assault on the strength of witness testimony delivery the invader Jacobs' allied witnesses who happened to be in the room meeting with the candidate when Jacobs began his performance.
Gianforte's only major fault in this situation lies in the risk miscalculation that lead him to attempt to engage with political agents of the fake news establishment as though they were neutral observers or actual journalists. Gianforte made a second, minor error in not roughing up the other journalists present in order to change their standing from witnesses to combatants, but this error follows from the first.
