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!!!!

Obama Lies Again: – Ignores That The Year After Signing The Stimulus More Than (4) Million Jobs Were Lost

Former President Obama, the only President in US history who had his FBI and other Intel agencies spy on the opposition party candidate, claims that he created the great economy that Americans are enjoying today. The only thing Obama created was debt and massive job losses with his horrible economic recovery.

Yesterday the former President tweeted an effort to take credit for President Trump’s successful economy:

Joe Hoft@joehoft

Of course another @BarackObama lie. He can’t open his mouth without lying. 11 years ago the US lost (4.3) million jobs over the next 12 months. Horrible liar. https://twitter.com/barackobama/status/1229432034650722304 

Barack Obama  @BarackObama

Eleven years ago today, near the bottom of the worst recession in generations, I signed the Recovery Act, paving the way for more than a decade of economic growth and the longest streak of job creation in American history.

President Obama’s policies were a disgrace and a failure. He doubled the national debt in spite of zero interest rates from the Fed. His recovery was the worst in US history.

Also, Obama’s assertion is just plain false. The ‘Stimulus’ was passed in February 2009 right after Obama took over the Presidency. He promised to not pass any bills for at least a week to allow for the bills to be read by the people but lied as soon as he was sworn in. The Stimulus was hundreds and hundreds of pages of government handouts to Democrat districts and it was close to $1 million. This was not what America needed and it led to the Tea Party.

Far-left Wikipedia has this to say about the Stimulus:

Note that in his infinite wisdom, NYT economist Paul Krugman is credited with arguing that “the stimulus was far smaller than the economic crisis warranted”. (He also said the markets would crash and burn if President Trump was elected President.)

The data shows that the 12 months after Obama’s stimulus, the US lost 4.3 million jobs:

In Obama’s first three years he netted a loss of 1.5 million jobs compared to President Trump who has added more than 6.7 million jobs.

When it comes to the economy, the billionaire schools the community organizer every time.
