Rep. Michael Grimm was a Marine before he was an FBI agent before he was a congressman from New York known mostly for doing sex in toilets and getting investigated by the FBI. Also, he once said Tyrant Obama was FEMA Camping Congress with just one tiny $4 per year cell phone fee. That’s some efficient tyrannizing right there! But if Nobummer can tyrannize the strong men of Congress just through a decision by his FCC to charge cell phone users four bucks per annum to fund internet in classrooms, then what kind of tyranny is it when Michael Grimm threatens to throw a reporter off a balcony, and “break him in half,” “like a boy”? And all of it on video? We are going to go with “diet tyranny,” or “tyranny lite,” because it is not like he threatened him with any socialism.
First things first: when we first saw the raw video of Michael Grimm thugging out on young NY1 reporter Mike Scotto, we were disappointed. It was all mumbles and whispers from the former undercover mob guy known as Mikey Suits. (MIKEY SUITS.) We were of the opinion that if Scotto were a truly baller reporter, he would have gotten that mic into Mikey Suits’s (MIKEY SUITS!) face, and somehow not gotten thrown over the balcony. Well it turns out we were as wrong as usual, because within minutes, a clearer vid emerged, and guess what? SCOTTO GOT THAT MIC RIGHT THE FUCK UP THERE, all while this giant gorilla was threatening to break him in half because he is “not a male,” and he’s “like a boy,” and we don’t think Mikey Suits (MIKEY SUITS!!!!) is a very good ally.
But is Michael Grimm sorry for his bad allyship, or indeed for his threatening to throw a reporter off a balcony? (Or, as Fox News put it, for “confronting” a reporter? Fuck no!!!! SHUT YOUR FUCKING MOUTH!!!!
I was extremely annoyed because I was doing NY1 a favor by rushing to do their interview first in lieu of several other requests. 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. 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. I doubt that I am the first Member of Congress to tell off a reporter, and I am sure I won’t be the last.
Well, let’s watch some video and see if we can find this “disrespectful” cheap shot of a question!
Buh-bye, Mikey Suits. You’re done.
