CNN's Chris Cuomo Challenges ‘Weak’ Greg Gianforte To 'Come Body-Slam Me'

The CNN host also asked why Donald Trump always praises bullies and punks?

CNN’s Chris Cuomo threw down a challenge to Rep. Greg Gianforte (R-Mont.) on Friday night.

The “Cuomo Prime Time” host said that if Gianforte ― whose 2017 body-slamming of a journalist was celebrated by President Donald Trump at a rally this week ― didn’t like the criticism that he was leveling at him, then he could “come body-slam me as well. I welcome it.”

Cuomo dubbed Gianforte “weak” over the attack. The congressman pleaded guilty to misdemeanor assault because he charged at “someone who wasn’t a threat.”

He also asked why Trump always praises bullies and “celebrates punks who go after the little guy.”
