Politics can get messy, and sometimes the gloves come off. Here are the top 5 political fight videos ever.

These unbelievable brawls, which have caught international attention, include: a CIA spy, Rupert Murdoch, and Nigel Farage.

Don’t miss it!


US vs. Russia

Adding to the US-Russia tug-of-war, a shocking video of this political fight has been leaked!

It features a Russian police officer wrestling with a US diplomat in Moscow. Have a look:

Well, here’s the explanation of what happened there:

  • Apparently, the Russian police officer wanted to check the diplomat’s documents before allowing him into the embassy. This was to ensure the embassy’s security, so that no trespassers are can enter the premises. However, the diplomat could not immediately offer any such documentation as he was a CIA agent operating under diplomatic cover. This as been confirmed by a Russian foreign ministry spokeswoman.
  • However, both the US and Russia accuse each other or harassing their respective diplomats in Moscow and Washington. This incident fuels the accusation further.

Rupert Murdoch vs. shaving foam pie

  • This may sound ridiculous, but it actually happened! In 2011, as Rupert Murdoch was presenting a speech to Members of Parliament at Portcullis House in the UK, Jonnie Marbles threw a shaving foam pie at his face.
  • The pie was expertly deflected by Murdoch’s then wife Wendi Deng, who became the star of the episode.
  • Marbles was sentenced to six weeks of jail time, but claimed he did it to avenge Murdoch’s corruption.

Here’s the video:

 

Fight at the Ukrainian Parliament

  • A short summary: In the second half of 2015 at the Ukrainian Parliament, an opposition MP goes for then Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk’s crotch.

Yes, you just shouldn’t miss this one:

EU Commission President vs. Nigel Farage

  • Who can forget this one? While it may not exactly involve throwing pies or punching someone in the eye, European Commission President Jean Claude Juncker sure got his point across to Nigel Farage.
  • Shockingly, he asked him point blank why he is even attending the EU meeting!
