Three reasons why Harry Reid’s “exercise accident” excuse is bogus

It always seemed a little bit fishy. How could “resistance bands” cause such serious and lingering injuries to Harry Reid’s eye and face?

I mean, it looked like he’d gone a few rounds in the ring with Mike Tyson. Even Rush Limbaugh commented that “Harry Reid looks like and is acting like — and now with this announcement, behaving like — somebody who may have been beaten up. Nobody… I’ve never seen anybody have an accident with an exercise machine that ends up suffering symptoms much like Harry Reid’s for as long as Harry Reid has.”

And maybe that sort of idea isn’t so far-fetched.

Breitbart has uncovered some facts which seem pretty damning to Harry’s version of events.

If you’ll recall, on January 22, Reid gave his version:

“I know there are a lot of rumors as to what happened, but that’s very simple. My wife and I were in our new home. I was doing exercises that I’ve been doing for many years with those large rubber bands and, uh, one of them broke and spun me around and I crashed into these cabinets and injured my eye.”

But Breitbart analyzed the layout of Reid’s bathroom and determined:

1.The shower door in his master bathroom, as well as two of the other three sides of the shower itself, consists of a glass panel that extends from floor to ceiling and is not sturdy enough to be used as the anchor for an exercise band.

2. The distance from the shower door to the cabinets in the bathroom is at best a mere 3 feet, an insufficient width to conduct the type of resistance band exercises Reid says he was performing when one of the bands broke and he hit his head on the cabinet.

3. Even if Reid had attempted to conduct his exercises in this very narrow 3 feet passage, the force of the exercise would not have been sufficient to “spin him around” and crash him into the cabinets of the master bathroom, as he claims.

Ouch! Of course now the interesting question – which will probably never be answered – is who wanted ol’ Harry beaten up — and why?


  1. I really don’t like to see anybody really hurt (not even Harry!), but you guys are really funny in your comments! 🙂

  2. He may have double-crossed someone or was unable to pass some legislation important to someone with whom he has a secret combination. He can’t report it because he’d be implicating himself. Maybe they’ve threatened his family members or allowing the issue to get to the media…. Just musing….

  3. He’s a crooked scumbag. He fashions himself as a tough “connected” guy. He’s lucky they didn’t finish the job. Follow his deals and lobbyist son’s deals for a while. Then it’ll make sense.

  4. Isn’t there a few more important things that could be investigated other than why this idiot has a black eye? Who cares?

    • I care because the “why” possibly goes to the very root of what’s wrong in this country. Corruption, thuggery, back room politics, etc. If the whoopin’ caused his retirement announcement, I would like to thank either the thug or the cabinets.

    • There’s another reason. No one in Congress, nor the President has to take a competency test to see if they have all their marbles. Clearly, Reid and Pelosi, between them are lacking enough to make one brain! Seriously, age and the question of competency are not tested and they ought to be.

  5. Actually I think he got drunk again and his wife beat the crap out of him. But who really cares about what happened to him.

  6. I’m have it on good authority that it was the father of one of his victims who beat him up, and he doesn’t pay taxes.

  7. LOOK for a Lefty … obuma?? nawww he would hit like a “girl.” Maybe hillary? After all, she has had the opportunity to practice on her dirty old man! Didn’t I understand he used to be a boxer?? Looks like he has lost his touch! hahahahaha

  8. It wasn’t a guy that beat him up. It was a little girl. He tried to steal her Girl Scout Cookies via the phony “Cookie Re-distribution Act of 2015”.

  9. You know someone beat the hell out of him…..And told him if he didn’t retire there would be more……Bet me that is what happened…?

    • Maybe the guy/gal who beat the hell out of him will come back and tell him, No you retire now…..And blame it on your eye……
      Hey I am allowed to dream…..WTH…

  10. It will come out sometime……when??? don’t have a clue, but usually these things slither out!

    My first thought was his wife punching him in the eye because she had had enough!!! (•︡‿•︠)

  11. He is a Dem. therefore corrupt. Corrupt backers can’t go to the law for grievances, so they handle it themselves. Sucked to be Dirty Harry when “Lefty” came to call. He could never block those left hooks.

    • they move from one conspiracy to the next,,, everyone is out to get them,,
      to pull the wool over their eyes,, to trick them,, to lie to them…
      I sleep better at night knowing that samurai west is up with eyes wide open…
      cause if not,,, those crazy, psycho progressive socialist will destroy
      our once great nation…

      • I think it’s a good thing to venture out and read things
        even crazy things,, like here…things I most definitely
        don’t agree with,,, but it’s just another side of the coin..

      • What part of NY? Lived in Bayside, Long Island ’til 1969, then Woodstock, NY ’til 1976, Rhinebeck ’til 1982, Schenectady ’til 1985, Cazenovia ’til 1988, Watertown ’til 2011, Utah ’til 2014 & planning to be buried here in Harrisonburg, VA

      • lol… born and raised in NYC,, moved to Maine in 75′..
        down to Mass. in 91′,,, in PA for awhile,,, back to NYC
        and ready to move again….
        I love New England…..

      • What county/town in NYC? Born in Astoria, lived in Bayside for 25 years. I imagine NH is probably your least fav of the NE 6(politically)

      • born in the bronx… lived in all 5 boroughs…
        after verrazano was bullt, dad wanted to get out of brooklyn…lol

  12. Who cares who did it? It got done and it makes me happy…and I believe it also lead to his retirement. Got the eff beat out of him and told to retire or it’ll happen again. That’s thug-politics and that is what these morons practice. In my opinion, the Pederasts got what he deserved.

  13. Justice is not always legal and beating a public official certainly is not legal…but justice may have been served. When you are in office that long at the behest of the seamier side of Nevada…you can forget who is boss only at great peril. It takes a big brass pair of balls to seriously physically attack Reid given the media coverage results. Who has the arrogance to punch Reid into submission despite how it would look; knowing that Reid would not reveal the truth regarding his attack.

    • They did Kennedy, they bumped off Jimmy Hoffa and he went missing…forever, in comparison, Reid is a nobody.

  14. “I heard from a very reliable source”…….that Dingy’s boyfriend found him cheating. That’s the story I heard.

  15. Ass beat by Cliven Bundy, ! The Rancher where the stand off was that Reid & his son pulled strings to get him thrown off the property they want for Drilling !!!

  16. I heard about this the other night,,, and I said to myself… bet west will write something
    or “Look what I heard”.. kinda story…
    and low and behold,,, And as reported by NotSoBriteBart… yadda, yadda,,,blah…
    why is everything a conspiracy?,, everything that happens is something to undermine
    our once great nation,,,(oh,, the pain), sharia law is coming,,, and atheist are taking
    over,, and the socialist, communist, marxist, POTUS loves somebody,,, anybody more than the US
    end times are upon us…. lol

      • You can’t go back to your “interesting” discussions because you really don’t know what’s going on. Maybe you’ll learn something when you end up in a FEMA camp.

      • What makes you think you’ll last to ‘sit before [a] death panel”? A bullet to the back of the head is all you’ll get.

      • Here?.. don’t believe I have to be…
        I save it for more interesting discussions on what’s really
        going on..

    • Why is everything a conspiracy? Because nothing is as it seems. We are lied to ALL the time. Believe nothing you are told by the government.

    • Not a conspiracy. Just a run-of-the-mill lie from a known liar. The problem is that it’s just such a BAD lie. That’s what’s so odd about it. That’s why I’m interested in it.
      I will say that when I saw his face, my first thought was “what must the mob have wanted that he didn’t do?” And by golly, that’s still my question.
      If you mess with the mob and you come up beaten up–come on. It doesn’t take a conspiracy.

  17. Interesting, if you all recall back in 2011 he had a separated shoulder and a huge laceration over his left eye. He claimed it happened from a fall while he was out running.

  18. I wouldn’t be surprised if he were involved in some shady business deals and he got beat up by the mob. That’s what I thought when it first happened.

    • That was my first thought too. Those casino and hotel worker unions pressing the wrong buttons and ole one-eyed Harry was right there with them. Or maybe one of his crooked real estate deals stepped on the wrong toes.
      I think he was “persuaded” to resign,…or else.

    • That’s GOP type behavior…..You know……The party that hates gay people unless they’re getting blowed by one

      • Brighter then a guy who spells CONSERVATIVE wrong……Its not CONCERVATIVE……DUMMY!

      • Hahahahaha!
        You don’t get out often do you? Missing the right key while typing is one thing but an overall
        lack of common sense is truly embarrassing. Look I’ve spelled the word
        conservative millions of times, and I average 99 present accuracy. Now with your rhetoric shows a true intellectual deficiency… I got be honest that I’m truly surprised when liberals make an intelligent point… I wonder how you would fare.
        I won’t change my profile name. I’m right so often that I need to be reminded that I’m not perfect.

      • Please go a little easier on him as he is really mentality challenged but is trying to hid it behind all his liberal bullshi!

      • It’s so funny how they get so exited about a type-o not realizing that it’s not indicative of lower intelligence. It’s a type-o, but their reaction is more symptomatic of their mental inadequacy.

      • You are a complete idiot with no morals what so ever. Now I am gonna tell you something: I have gay friends and your assumption is like an rectum, “It holds no air.” Does your mommy know you are really this stupid? She must not know or she would have gotten rid of you. Thanks for also being the “Internet Spell Checking Fairy.” I am so glad you are “Mr. Perfect.” You friggin moron!!! Go crawl back into your cave never to return.

  19. I heard his boyfriend got wild and poked him in the eye, I don’t knknow what it was but I heard it was a blunt object.

  20. I think he is lying, but when did he say he was in the bathroom doing the alleged exercises? I personally think Moochelle donky-punched him….but have no proof…

  21. How could anyone think that he is not telling the Truth? The word is going around that an 8 year old may have done this. Then again I heard that a 9 year old did it. Word has it that a 8 1/2 year old is responsible. Good sources also say an 8 year old. I read somewhere that it was 9 year old who pushed him. W says that he wouldn’t do that to get sympathy. In any case he was a boxer and should be able to defend himself from youngsters, I heard.
