The gloves had been off as a fistfight almost broke out between GOP Sen. Markwayne Mullin and Teamsters Basic President, Sean O’Brien, on Capital Hill Tuesday … leading to a stern scolding from Sen. Bernie Sanders.
Tensions erupted when ex-MMA fighter Mullin learn out tweets by O’Brien following a earlier heated congressional listening to, during which he was labeled a “clown and fraud,” amongst numerous different insults.
Along with his damning gaze firmly on his opponent, Mullin warns of a “time and place to run his mouth” … and as “two consenting adults,” they may “end it right here.”
The duo urges one another to “stand their butt up” to duke it out leaving an agitated Sanders to maintain the peace and remind Mullin of his obligations as a United States senator.
“God is aware of the American folks have sufficient contempt for Congress,” Sanders says, clearly pissed concerning the showdown that was about to unfold.
Unrelenting, Mullin goes on to taunt his rival for “going quiet” … just for O’Brien to hit again by likening him to a 12-year-old for difficult him to a cage match. Ouch.
The verbal boxing match concluded with no winners as Bernie threw down his gavel … rebuking any extra chatter of bodily abuse.
