Melissa McCarthy does a great job in this skit of putting New York Rep. Michael Grimm (R)in his place – to borrow from Grimm, “Like a boy.”
You may recall the story that recently came to light about Grimm threatening to throw a reporter over a balcony for asking him about an ongoing investigation into the congressman’s campaign finances. Grimm refused to comment in camera, and as soon as he thought the camera was off, he turned on the reporter, Michael Scotto of NY1.
SCOTTO: “What? I just wanted to ask you…”GRIMM: ”Let me be clear to you, you ever do that to me again I’ll throw you off this f***ing balcony.”
SCOTTO: ”Why? I just wanted to ask you…”
GRIMM: ”If you ever do that to me again…”
SCOTTO: ”Why? Why? It’s a valid question.”
GRIMM: ”No, no, you’re not man enough, you’re not man enough. I’ll break you in half. Like a boy.”
Congressman Grimm has apologized for threatening to kill a reporter. That’s great, but we still think he will need to have those intimidation skills when he heads off to federal prison.
