Rep. Michael Grimm (R-NY) threatens a NY1 reporter after he is asked about campaign corruption during a post-SOTU interview.

“Let me be clear to you, you ever do that to me again I’ll throw you off this f***ing balcony,” Grimm said, according to NY1.

“It’s a valid question,” Michael Scotto, the reporter, told Grimm.

“No, no, you’re not man enough, you’re not man enough. I’ll break you in half. Like a boy,” Grimm responded.

Here is the transcript released by NY1…

Let me see – I wonder what the Freeperati reaction will be?

I’m guessing equal parts “Democrats threaten to throw reporters off the balcony all the time” and “he should have slit the reporter’s throat on camera to show he wasn’t bluffing”.

The MSM was why they ONLY focus on the GOP.

Their Answer:
“When Democrats do this, it is a GOOD thing”.

Personally, I’m glad he got in the little weasel’s face. I enjoyed the “Uh-oh” moment the “reporter” had when he realized he messed with the wrong guy.

We’re always saying how GOP folk never fight back, and then when they do, some just bemoan it.

Some of the Freeperati have the wits to be embarrassed:

Yes, there is a double standard. However this classless moron is probably guilty. Even if innocent he should be working in a transfer station.

The best and brightest conservative are not in politics. They are out there creating wealth. That leaves the second string running for office and staying there forever.

He is the “wrong guy” for threatening to throw the reporter over the balcany, NOT because he represents our side and the media finally got “put in its place” but because this man is being probed by the FBI over a crooked fundraiser who supposedly helped Rep. Michael Grimm raise illegal funds in 2010 in exchange for the candidate’s promise to help him obtain a green card.

This congressman may or may not be guilty but to go as far as making such a threat to a civilian on camera in order to avoid discussing the issue surely does not make him look innocent.

He’s a stupid politician to say the least.

We have enough government officials from the other side threatening the opposition (ie the IRS scandal) without others from our side doing the same thing on LIVE camera.

How can we expect the House to go after those behind the IRS scandal if they also have similar skeletons in the closet.

This man could do more harm than good.

And some of them were just pissed that Grimm apologised (after he realized that it was all on tape and had gone viral) :

How bad is it with the GOP these days? Bad enough that I’m thinking this guy needs to be in a leadership position. At least he has some spine.
