Harry Reid Got His A** Kicked By an Exercise Band, but That’s Not The Worst Part

We’ve all seen the images of Harry Reid following an epic death match he apparently had with his personal exercise equipment.  Reid failed to operate an exercise band successfully and suffered multiple injuries.

Here is an image of the patent for the device used by Reid:

Now, of course, the resulting injuries are no laughing matter.  They were serious, and Reid very badly hurt himself.

That said, I know if I hurt myself using exercise equipment my friends would relentlessly mock me.  If I then turned around and sued the maker of the exercise equipment, I’d never hear the end of it.

Yet, that’s exactly what Reid is doing.

Via Fox News:

U.S. Sen. Harry Reid is suing a company that makes and markets a flexible exercise band that he says broke or slipped from his hand during an arm-strengthening routine on New Year’s Day, causing him to fall and suffer face, rib and eye injuries.

The Senate minority leader from Nevada and his wife, Landra Gould, seek more than $50,000 in damages from Thera-Band maker Hygenic Intangible Property Holding Co., The Hygenic Corp. and Performance Health LLC.

From there, it actually gets worse.  As Gawker reports, Reid is also suing the company for “loss of marital consortium” which is fancy terminology for being unable to have sex.

A closer read of the case shows that the Reids are claiming loss of marital consortium, a legal term defined as the “inability of one’s spouse to have normal marital relations, which is a euphemism for sexual intercourse.”

Excuse me for a moment …

Just for comparison purposes, here is an image of a senior citizen operating resistance band equipment without getting their a** kicked.

That’s one tough grandma.

  • I think it's too bad Reid didn't kill himself and can the company or someone sue Reid for being too incredibly stupid to use a simple exercise mechanism? And this worthless slob was the U.S. Senate Pro Tem..... hey I forgot he's a Dumbocrat!

  • This reminds me of the story of the inmate in jail that fell off the top bunk six times before he was able to stay on that bed. The watch captain asked how he was hurt and the comments were that he kept falling off the top bunk. Of course, Reids brother really didn't beat him up that bad did he?
