As State of the Union rebuttals go, it’s going to be hard to top Rep. Michael Grimm, R-N.Y.

The former Marine and FBI vet apparently made chilling comments to reporter Michael Scotto after he had asked about campaign finance issues. According to a transcript from the network conducting the ill-fated interview:

Grimm: “Let me be clear to you, you ever do that to me again I’ll throw you off this f—–g balcony.”

Scotto: “Why? I just wanted to ask you…”

[[cross talk]]

Grimm: “If you ever do that to me again…”

Scotto: “Why? Why? It’s a valid question.”

[[cross talk]]

Grimm: “No, no, you’re not man enough, you’re not man enough. I’ll break you in half. Like a boy.”
