Image result for Mark GiangrecoChicago’s ABC affiliate suspended a popular local sportsman for attacking both President Donald Trump and America itself on Twitter by calling Trump a “cartoon lunatic” and America “a country full of simpletons.”

Long-time sportsman Mark Giangreco raised eyebrows after last Sunday’s mini tirade on Twitter, and by Thursday employer ABC-7 announced that the sportscaster was suspended saying in a statement, “Sports anchor Mark Giangreco’s Twitter comments are not in line with ABC 7 Chicago’s non-partisan editorial standards. We’ve reviewed the matter and are taking the appropriate action.”

According to Chicago media blogger Robert Feder, Giangreco’s suspension starts Monday. Feder also reports that Giangreco, who has been a TV sportsman in Chicago for 35 years, will be suspended without pay for “multiple weeks.”

Why not suspend him FOREVER! Who really needs this Mindless Schmuck?

Good for his ass!

FIRE him!! Strip him of his citizenship and deport!

 Bet he is a Democrat. These people are all unhinged because they lost the election...I never saw the Republicans nasty over anything Obama did... He spent our money on vactions around the world like there was an endless supply.... Rather than suspend him they should fire him....

Agreed 10000%...what the demoncraps display is anything but American...I hated king o, still do, but am not tweeting, rioting or destroying property or slandering folks because of it.....I got active in the process...you want change you have to make it...as a mature adult.

Chicago are full of left wing lunatics, muslim agitators and terrorist like bill ayers...

Personal note: I hated putting this story up on site! I worked with this man years ago at a Louisville, KY TV station. But, it is what it is and it's news.....

Suspended without pay???   If this already damaged station and it affiliates cares about there reputation they should fire him.  Maybe he should use his own personal tweet, no association to the network and his position.

Just him and see if its even noticed.

anyone want to hire this moron...yeah didn't think so

with all the people being shot and killed in chiraq, one would think that he would be focused on that

It must be nice to have a mic in your hand and shout any bull shit you want. No one can respond to this crap you spout. Well ABC finally did the right thing but should have made it permeated.  

 

Why is it, that most of these Sportsmen assume they have the Freedom to tirade this odious hate.  Frankly, flapping their gums, is like Nordstrom's cutting their own throats.  Good for ABC. Stupidity must be contagious!!!!

 Dem Governor Threatens Trump: “Something’s Got To Happen To This Guy… He’s Sabotaging The World Order”

“If we don’t get rid of him, he’s going to undermine America and even the world.”

Another Democrat has called for ‘something to happen’ to President Trump in order to save the democratic process in America.

California Gov. Jerry Brown made the comments during an appearance on MSNBC, while discussing the death toll during hurricanes last year in Puerto Rico.

“Well, the problem is, we never had a president who was engaged in this kind of behavior,” Brown declared.

“I mean he’s not telling the truth. He keeps changing his mind. He’s sabotaging the world order in many respects.” the Governor claimed.

“So it’s unprecedented, it’s dangerous, and hopefully this election is going to send a strong message to the country,” he continued.

“The Democrats will win and then Trump — well, something’s got to happen to this guy, because if we don’t get rid of him, he’s going to undermine America and even the world.” Brown urged.

The tacit threat comes in the wake of Maxine Waters encouraging anti-Trumpers to “knock off” the President.
