That reporter needed to stand up and say something with his chest. He was looking like a middle schooler facing the schoolyard bully.Dead


That Rep is a thug. Their culture raises them to be like that.

When white people do ish like this, its because of their "passion" and "zeal"

When we do ish like this, its because of our "aggression" and lack of "tact"

He is a dumbass and his excuse is mind boggling you don't expect a reporter to ask you about misappropriation of funds.
Who voted this man in to office.

Why do ppl miss their perfect opportunities to make a scene?

**raisies voice a notch or two** So you're threatening to throw me off of this balcony??

That reporter is not cut out for interviews. He needs to try his hand at reporting the weather or something.

WASHINGTON (CBS New York/AP) – Staten Island
Rep. Michael Grimm said he was “wrong” for threatening a reporter with violence after Tuesday night’s State of the Union address.

After cutting the reporter off, Grimm told Scotto, “You ever do that to me again I’ll throw you off this (expletive) balcony.” He also threatened to “break (Scotto) in half.”

Grimm issued a statement Wednesday saying he has apologized to Scotto, which he said the reporter has “graciously accepted.”

“I was wrong,” Grimm said in the statement. “I shouldn’t have allowed my emotions to get the better of me and lose my cool.”
 “This was an unfortunate incident that shouldn’t have happened and I am sure my Italian mother is going to be yelling at me saying, ‘you weren’t raised that way,’ and she’s right,” said the congressman.

In a tweet, Scotto confirmed the congressman called to apologize.

Scotto said he was surprised at Grimm’s reaction Tuesday night, but did not feel it was a serious threat and wants to “move on.”

“It was a short conversation, we weren’t one on one, speaking face to face. But it seemed from what he was saying that he was sincere but also at the same time, he is aware of kind of the negative press that he’s been getting as a result of this,” Scotto told WCBS 880′s Rich Lamb on Wednesday.

Scotto added he never felt endangered by Grimm’s threats but said the congressman “was the angriest I have ever seen any politician.”
 
Grimm had issued an earlier statement after the incident in which he said he was “extremely annoyed” with Scotto and doubted he was the “first member of Congress to tell off a reporter.”

“The reporter knew that I was in a hurry and was only there to comment on the State of the Union, but insisted on taking a disrespectful and cheap shot at the end of the interview, because I did not have time to speak off-topic,” he said in the earlier statement. “I verbally took the reporter to task and told him off, because I expect a certain level of professionalism and respect, especially when I go out of my way to do that reporter a favor.”

Meanwhile, Mayor Bill de Blasio said Wednesday that House leadership should denounce Grimm’s actions, Lamb reported.

“You don’t threaten reporters physically,” said de Blasio. “It was a physical threat. It’s unacceptable and, look, I think all of us who go into public life accept a higher set of standards. It’s by definition. To threaten someone, that’s something that no public servant should do.”

Grimm is up for reelection this fall. His district stretches into Brooklyn and is considered a “swing” district. Grimm won two years ago with just 53-percent of the vote.

Quote “This was an unfortunate incident that shouldn’t have happened and I am sure my Italian mother is going to be yelling at me saying, ‘you weren’t raised that way,’ and she’s right,” said the congressman.


And of course everything is "an unfortunate incident" or "mistake" or "out of character" when it's one of them showing their thug ass. Man, look.....Ermm

I don't think there's a side eye gif epic enough for that fraganacle(sp?) bull. Ermm
