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!!!!

ALERT ALERT

ALERT --> Minnesota Elects First Muslim Congresswoman In US History!!!

Minnesota voters sent Somali immigrant Ilhan Omar of the DFL party to Congress on Tuesday night after she defeated Republican candidate Jennifer Zielinski by a 78-22% margin.

Omar and Michigan House candidate Rashida Tlaib (D) both became the first two Muslim-American women to serve in Congress after their election victories on Tuesday, November 6, 2018.

Yesterday Ilhan Omar won her election in Minnesota, becoming the first Muslim woman elected to Congress.

Today, she had to appear before a judge for her hearing regarding ethics violations.

It’s been less than 24 hrs since she won and she’s already in court for her corruption.

Omar, along with being the first Muslim women elected to Congress is also the first Somali-American member of Congress, a seat in Minnesota’s 5th Congressional district which was previously held by Keith Ellison, who was the first Muslim ever elected to US Congress. Minnesota’s 5th Congressional district has not elected a Republican to Congress since 1962. The district includes Minneapolis and its surrounding suburbs.

The Minnesota state congresswoman ran a progressive platform which included “Medicare for all,” criminal justice reform and abolishing Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

Omar, a Somali refugee, came to the U.S. at 12 years old, which is why she often attacks President Trump‘s travel ban against a number of Muslim-majority countries which happen to be terror hotbeds.

In August, Investigative Journalist Laura Loomer confronted both Ilhan and Tlaib, who have both expressed hatred for Jewish people and who are campaigning with pro-HAMAS Linda Sarsour and CAIR, which has been designated as a terrorist organization by the United Arab Emirates.

When Loomer confronted Tlaib at one of Ilhan’s campaign events, Tlaib assaulted Loomer, and a police report was filed.

Omar’s campaign and election, however, are still clouded in controversy. Omar has been accused of marrying her brother and committing immigration fraud.

The day after her victory, Omar appeared in court to face a judge about the campaign finance violations she has been accused of.

Ilhan Omar was also arrested in 2013 for trespassing.

This is Ilhan Omar.

She won an election last night & is now the first Somali woman elected to US Congress.

This is her mug shot.

Along w/ being a criminal, as you can see, she committed immigration fraud by marrying her brother so he could get a green card.

Good riddance.

Omar has also faced criticism for her ties to CAIR, campaigning with jihadi activist Linda Sarsour, Keith Ellison, who has been accused of domestic violence, and her public display of anti-Semitism, all of which has been either under-reported and ignored by the local Minnesota media.
