This exchange that jumped off following President Obama’s State of the Union speech last night has gotten as much attention, if not more, than the actual address.
NY1 reporter Michael Scotto finished asking Republican Congressman Michael Grimm of New York about the president’s speech, then, tried to ask about allegations concerning his ongoing campaign finance scandal.
Well, Grimm went off.
After refusing to answer “off topic” questions, the Staten Island legislator ended the interview and stormed off, leaving Scotto to wrap by telling viewers that Grimm refused to address the campaign finance allegations.
Scotto threw it back to the studio, but the camera was still rolling – capturing Grimm getting in the reporter’s face and threatening to break him in half and toss him over the Capitol balcony, where the interview was taking place.
