“In reality, just a clown & fraud. Always has been, always will be,” O’Brien wrote. “Quit the tough guy act in these senate hearings. You know where to find me. Anyplace, Anytime cowboy.” O’Brien used the tag, “#LittleManSyndrome.” As Mullin, 46, read the tweet on Tuesday, the senator, mixed martial artist and former wrestler, told O’Brien, “I wish you were in the truck with me when I was building the company myself and my wife was running the office.” “I sure remember working pretty hard and long hours,” Mullin added. [firefly_poll] Mullin then referred back to O’Brien’s tweet – specifically the line, “You know where to find me.” “Sir, this is a time, this is a place,” Mullin said as he stared at O’Brien. “If you want to run your mouth, we can be two consenting adults, we can finish it here.” O’Brien, 51, shot back, “OK, that’s fine. Perfect.” Mullin responded, “You want to do it now?” “I’d love to do it right now,” O’Brien said. Mullin fired back, “Stand your butt up, then.” O’Brien replied, “You stand your butt up.”
Greedy CEO who pretends like he’s self made. In reality, just a clown & fraud. Always has been, always will be. Quit the tough guy act in these senate hearings. You know where to find me.

Mullin then rose from his chair and motioned as if he was going to take his wedding ring off. Sanders, meanwhile, began to shout at both men and called for a de-escalation. “No, hold up – stop it!” Sanders senator shouted. “Hold it, hold it – hold it!” [ic_related] Order was restored to the hearing. Ian Kullgren with Bloomberg shared additional details about the near-fight in the Senate, declaring that, “This is the most insane thing I have ever seen on Capitol Hill.”

It was a close one, but looks like Sanders cooled things down. Committee has moved on to questions from other members.— Ian Kullgren (@IanKullgren) November 14, 2023
