No One Seems To Feel Bad About Nigel Farage Getting Hit With A Milkshake

Far-right British politician Nigel Farage received a sticky cold shower on Monday, much to the internet’s collective glee.

The Brexit Party leader was making a campaign stop at Newcastle when a man walked up and hurled a milkshake at him.

In the video, a dripping Farage can be heard grumbling to his security team that he could’ve seen the attack coming “a mile away.”

Paul Crowther, the milkshake-wielder, was immediately arrested. He told the Guardian that it was a banana and salt caramel milkshake and that he had zero regrets.

“I was quite looking forward to it, but I think it went on a better purpose,” Crowther said.

Besides leading the charge to Brexit, Farage has made several appearances on this side of the pond to boost President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign. He even became a subject of scrutiny in special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe.

It’s like Richard Spencer getting socked in the face on the street or that anti-Muslim Australian politician getting egged after his comments about the NZ mass shooting or, my personal favorite, when Dick Cheney was told to “go fuck yourself!” when he visited Louisiana after the 2005 hurricane, and the black-hearted baby-eating motherfucker couldn’t deal with it.

    Besides, as Captain America says, “It’s always a good day for America when you punch a Nazi in the face!”

    Farage has always had the scent of Dairy Air about him.

  3. Asked how he felt after the incident, Farage responded, through his cavernous maw, “I’m a bit shaken.”
