Far right commentator Michael Savage has joined the string of conservative pundits cheering the assault of Guardian reporter Ben Jacobs. Jacobs was trying to ask Montana congressional candidate Greg Gianforte a question when he was choked and slammed to the ground.
Savage said reporters deserve even worse.
“Reporters deserve to have their pants pulled down and f**ked in the ass. They’d probably like it,” said Savage on his show “The Savage Nation.” “The liberal media are absolute low-life scum.”
President Donald Trump has also been attacking the media for more than a year and branded them “the enemy of the people.”
Despite being charged with a misdemeanor, Gianforte still won his race. Even worse, right-wing pundits have supported him and denigrated Jacobs.
Radio show host Rush Limbaugh salivated over Gianforte instead of condemning his actions.
“Gianforte, the manly and studly candidate, threw the 125-pound wet dishrag reporter from The Guardian to the ground,” said Limbaugh.
FOX News commentator Rachel Campos-Duffy also praised Gianforte’s violent act describing it as “Montana justice.”
