Let's call this the most bizarre response of all time to a State of the Union address: Republican Rep. Michael Grimm, when asked about the federal investigation into his campaign fundraising:
"I'm not speaking to you off-topic, this is only about the president," said Grimm, before walking off camera.Hilariously, Grimm later defended his little meltdown, saying he was "annoyed" and "in a hurry," and that—wait for it—he expects "a certain level of professionalism and respect."
... But as the camera continued to roll, Grimm walked back up to Scotto and began speaking to him in a low voice. [...]
Grimm: "Let me be clear to you, you ever do that to me again I'll throw you off this f-----g balcony ... No, no, you're not man enough, you're not man enough. I'll break you in half. Like a boy."
Because Michael Grimm is all about professionalism and respect. Jackass.
