During my recent absence, I caught this clip on the news. I thought it was hilarious … and I really don’t know why.
Rep. Peter King (R-New York), known for his brash style of conservative leadership, took to the boxing ring recently. He duked it out for a few seconds with “Irish” Josh Foley, a guy who was clearly half his age and in much better shape. Foley is a 31-year-old former kickboxing champion. The two sparred at Mulcahy’s Pub in Wantagh, New York to raise money for a local boxing gym.
It cracks me up to watch King hold his own in the ring. He put up a good fight, but you can tell Foley was going easy on him. Lol…
Sidenote: Congressional observers took issue with King participating in the fundraiser altogether. They say House rules prevent members from favoring certain businesses over others, which was implied in the fundraising attempt. Hmmmm….
