I can’t help it–I’ve watched this video 10 times now and I’ve laughed 10 times.
They say politics is a “full contact sport” as a way to illustrate how dirty it can get from time to time.
However in New York City, it really is a contact sport.
Just New York State Senator, Brad Hoylman who was the target of an “attack” from a disgruntled constituent.

Oh wait..how quickly we forget.
