According to Hot Air, Harry Reid (NV-D) told CNBC journalist John Harwood that Senator John McCain (AZ-R) threatened to beat him up.Many have speculated Harry Reid’s injuries were not due to a exercising mishap. Some have thought Reid’s drunk brother beat him up. But this is a new development and perhaps Reid is trying to hint McCain did it.
Harry Reid said:
It wasn’t long ago he came to me on the Senate floor, and he said, ‘What you just did, I’m going to come to the floor and kick the s*** out of you,’ and I said to him, ‘John, if I were in your position, I would do the same thing.'”

The rest of the interview with CNBC was about Reid saying he thinks the field of GOP presidential candidates are all “losers” and that Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell (KY-R) is “a lump of coal.” It seems as if the Democrats use a lot of shocking and abrasive language to get in the news. Just the other day Debbie Wasserman Schultz (FL-D) said the GOP presidential contenders were clowns and she called Rubio a prune. I find it ironic we have all these anti bullying laws in place yet some lawmakers careers are focused on bullying other lawmakers publicly.
As for the naysayers when it comes to Reid’s injuries he wanted to address them as well. He said:
Why in the world would I come up with a story that I got hurt in my own bathroom with my wife standing there? How could anyone say anything like that? And I think a lot of people, as I read, they kind of don’t like me as a person and I think that’s unfortunate.
Maybe he should release the 911 call or a medical record supporting his claim and people would believe him.
It is not the first time Harry Reid has lied in the past. Back when Mitt Romney was running for president Reid told the nation Romney had not paid his taxes for ten years. Reid later said he made that comment because Romney did not want to show his tax returns. When Reid was asked if he was sorry he misled the nation he said:
I have no repentance. . . because it was an issue that was important.
