But it wouldn’t be a day in America without some new political uproar throwing you against the ropes and putting you in a headlock, so here’s Seth Meyers’s rundown of the controversy surrounding Montana’s Greg Gianforte, the Republican congressional candidate charged with misdemeanor assault after allegedly “body slamming” Guardian reporter Ben Jacobs.
