Texas Governor Greg Abbott Jokes About Shooting Journalists
This week, the Republican candidate for the Montana special election, Greg Gianforte body-slammed Ben Jacobs, a reporter from The Guarding newspaper, and went on to win the election.
Now, Texas Republican Governor Greg Abbott is joking about shooting reporters.
After signing a bill last Friday that lowers the state fees for a license to carry a handgun in Texas, Abbott showed off his target sheet on a firing range and joked that he will be carrying it around “in case I see any reporters.”
It would appear Republicans have decided that threatening to harm reporters will endear them to their supporters.
