Err. The White House? Does he think Senator Reid is actually president?

Oh dear. Why the gushing over Senator Harry Reid? Because, boxing.

Sen. Reid squeed in mutual admiration. Pleased to meet the “Champ.” And, you know, convicted rapist.

I’m going to get all my media connections to become aware of the issue.

— Mike Tyson (@MikeTyson) April 3, 2013

He then includes Sen. McCain in his praise. Is a chat-date up for them next? Probably not: Tyson is here legally.

@senatorreid @senjohnmccain you two are great men. You put the political differences aside to spearhead Jack Johnson’s pardon. #respect

Sigh.

As for Sen. Reid, this Twitter user has a question for you:

@senatorreid “Pleased” to meet a convicted rapist?

And in a nutshell:

@senatorreid I wished you cared as much about passing a budget or not infringing on our rights as you do meeting him!

Update:

Tyson has deleted the tweet at the top of this post and posted this in its place:

My friend @senatorreid has had an amazing journey from Washington to the White House. Read his memoir it’s compelling and funny.

— Mike Tyson (@MikeTyson) April 3, 2013

“An amazing journey from Washington to the White House.”

And there you have it … Words of wisdom from a boxer who evidently received too many punches to the head.
