The biggest question on Capitol Hill this week is whether the meanest, toughest people in the country come from Oklahoma or Tenneseee?
Perhaps you’re dreamin’.
“I’m a guy from Oklahoma first,” said Sen. Markwayne Mullin, R-Okla., a former MMA fighter on Fox News Radio.
Mullin rose from his seat on the dais during a Senate hearing to challenge Teamsters President Sean O’Brien to a fistfight. Mullin even loosened his wedding ring. That signaled that he was serious about throwing haymakers with O’Brien.
Mullin’s staff tells Fox that as a former pro fighter, the senator knows that “if he hit something with a ring on, his hand would likely swell up.”
Mullin stared down at O’Brien, towering above the witness table from the dais where senators sit.
“You don’t run your mouth like that in Oklahoma unless you’re willing to stand up and back it up,” said Mullin of O’Brien. “He just ran his mouth off to the wrong person.”
Don’t mess with Oklahoma?
