Guardian reporter Ben Jacobs responded Friday to President Trump’s praising Rep. Greg Gianforte, the Montana Republican who assaulted the journalist last year, calling Trump a liar and a coward.

Jacobs, who covered Trump for 18 months on the 2016 presidential campaign trail, said that he knew there was a possibility the president would mock a crime victim. Still, after Trump called Gianforte “a tremendous person and a tough cookie” at a rally Thursday in Missoula, Mont., Jacobs felt “shock and dismay.” He wished that the president had surprised him, he said.
