Tough Guy Senator Says He Would Bite Someone 'Anywhere' In A Fist Fight
I should train jiu-jitsu is
because even if you lose a fight,
you wanna make sure the other guy will
never want to fight you ever again because
it's kind of a win-win at that point.
But we need to move from an almost-
>> Speaker 2: By the way,
I'm not afraid of biting.
I will bite.
>> Speaker 1: Biting?
Well, I mean-
>> Speaker 3: Yeah, I'm in a fight,
I'm gonna bite.
I'll do anything.
I mean, I'm not above it, and
I don't care where I bite, by the way.
It just is gonna be a bite.
>> Speaker 1: I'm not even gonna
ask any further questions on that.
I think that that basically speaks for
>> Speaker 3: Wait,
did he just say he was the gay nutcracker?
What is he talking about, right?
>> Speaker 3: He'll bite anywhere?
Listen, Senator Mullin is
a ridiculous person in general.
This interview actually took place a day
after he was in a Senate committee
hearing where he was talking
about brawling, brawling, guys.
And this is absolutely ridiculous.
This is where we find ourselves, though.
And this reminds us that
the Republican Party, red state hell,
is all about one thing.
Clicks, clickbait and clicks.
Because there's nothing serious about this
conversation, especially when you have
a witness that's been invited to testify
about standing up to corporate greed and
you wanna talk about fighting them,
challenging them to a fight.
Rayy, come on now.
Where are we?
>> Speaker 4: I love-
>> Speaker 3: Cuz I'll bite you, Rayy.
>> Speaker 4: Right, [LAUGH] I love how
he starts that in that video, he's like,
I'm not afraid to bite.
I'll nibble on a man's earlobe.
I'm fine with it.
I'll be there [LAUGH] behaving like that.
I guess I wouldn't expect anything less
from a senator named Mark Wayne Mullin.
I mean, maybe that's what the people
[LAUGH] of Oklahoma elected him to do.
I mean, and it's funny in that
video you're talking about, though,
you have Bernie Sanders trying to calm
him down and be the voice of reason,
he's chairing that hearing.
And he's not, right?
He's just continuously like,
I wanna beat the crap out of you.
I wanna beat you up.
Hold up your fists,
let me punch you in the face [LAUGH].
And that's the Senate now.
It's not just the absolute best that
is our House of Representatives,
it's also our Senate, which is supposed
to be the more respectable institution.
And you know what, though?
It makes for good clicks.
That is obviously the goal.
Get a sound bite,
get some notoriety on social media,
something that you can campaign off of,
cuz election season is coming up.
And some attention from the far right
that shows that you're a tough,
tough guy who got wealthy because his
dad was wealthy, and you're not afraid
to put yourself on the line to defend
the honor of your plumbing company.
I don't really know what any of this is
about, but I've been enjoying watching it.
And whatever keeps this guy away
from voting on legislation,
then that's cool with me [LAUGH].
>> Speaker 3: Yeah, and the tragedy of
this is, the irony, I should say, is 50,
60 years ago, him threatening a Teamster
like that could have ended different for
him, but I digress [LAUGH].
>> I digress.
