NY1’s Pat Kiernan Left Nearly Speechless Over Trump Praising Attack on Reporter: ‘How Can You Cheer for That?’

NY1 anchor Pat Kieran barely kept it together on Friday as he reacted to Donald Trump‘s compliments to Congressman Greg Gianforte (R-MT) at last night’s rally.

The president drew applause last night when he called Gianforte “my kind of guy” for body-slamming a journalist last year. As Kiernan aired that moment on his show today, he tried to maintain his poise, but eventually succumbed to pure exasperation.

“How can you cheer for that?” he asked incredulously.

Trump’s remarks have drawn renewed outrage from the media, especially since critics are still accusing his administration of buying into Saudi Arabia’s cover story for Jamal Khashoggi‘s suspected murder.

Watch above.
