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.”

In his #ClosingArgument, @ChrisCuomo defines what it means to be a leader, and he uses a certain #NBA superstar as his example.https://t.co/MXKTN5wDSLpic.twitter.com/HNYJ2SVUF4
