‘F*cking B*tch!’: GOP Supporters Berate Reporters for Broadcasting During Prayer

Here’s a local TV story out of last week’s election night. During a watch party hosted by Texas Lt. Governor-elect Dan Patrick, several reporters were berated, while on-air, by GOP supporters upset they were broadcasting during a prayer.

Houston-based blogger Mike McGuff flagged the incident after abc13 KTRK reporter Foti Kallergis tweeted that he had just been “assaulted” on live TV:

Fox 26 KRIV reporter Isiah Carey noticed the commotion and snapped a picture of a Republican supporter (in the khaki blazer) confronting Kallergis (with the mic), who was defended by KTRK colleague Deborah Wrigley (in the black dress):

According to Carey, another attendee called Wrigley a “fucking bitch” during the scuffle.

That part did not happen on live TV, but the beginning of the confrontation did. KTRK viewers were treated to an unidentified man telling Kallergis, mid-report, to shush because Patrick was in the middle of leading a prayer on-stage

Watch the moment below, via KTRK:
