Well, this is awkward.
Left, right and center, straight news and opinion, journalists at CPAC have one thing in common, the overwhelming urge to punch Benji Backer

In case you don’t recognize Mr. Jacobs, he is the journalist that newly elected Republican, Greg Gianforte, allegedly body slammed the night before the special election.
It was even recorded AND Gianforte has been charged with misdemeanor assault.
Granted, many on the right have not condoned Gianforte’s behavior and have called him out for it – that being said, this tweet from Jacobs speaks volumes.
@Bencjacobs This tweet didn't age well.

@Bencjacobs So, why does a grown man, such as yourself, feel it was OK to punch a 16 year old kid?
— Chris McAllister (@themanfronUNCLE) May 26, 2017
Oh yeah, and did we mention Benji is only 16?
@Bencjacobs Oh, this Benji is a 16 year old minor? How priceless! LOLOLOL
