Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) took shots at both Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and a punching bag on at the Muhammad Ali Center in Louisville, Kentucky on Sunday. And, while McConnell wasn’t at the event and couldn’t respond, the punching bag fought back – and won.
The 2020 Democrat presidential hopeful used his platform at the Ali Center to attack McConnell “in his own backyard” and, at some point, was caught on camera displaying his boxing skills, RedState reports:
“As it turns out, McConnell wasn’t Sanders’s only target. Since the 2020 presidential candidate was at the Ali Center, sometime before or after his speech, he took a few swings at a speed bag, according to video posted by Reddit user cmplxgal on Monday.”
In the video, Sanders punches the bag, which rebounds and appears to hit him in the face, stunning him as he stumbles backwards.
The Ali Center is named in honor of the late professional boxer, heavyweight champion and activist, Muhammad Ali.
