Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino, who is running for a congressional seat in Florida, just had a total meltdown when he didn’t like a reporter’s line of questioning. His angry tirade resulted in one of the most off the rails interviews I have ever had the pleasure of listening to.
Bongino was hostile from the start with Politico reporter Marc Caputo. When the journalist pressed him to actually answer his questions, Bongino got increasingly angry. After calling Caputo an “asshole” and a “piece of shit,” Bongino ended up screaming “F*ck you!” at the top of his lungs, repeatedly, before hanging up.
This isn’t Bongino’s first rodeo. In Maryland, he ran for the Senate in 2012 and then for a congressional seat in 2014, losing both times. Now, he is running for congress in Florida’s 19th district, even though he happens to live way over on the other side of the state. When Caputo asked him about this, he completely lost his mind.
So why are you running for office in a city you don’t live in, in a county you don’t live in, in a district you don’t live in?” Caputo asked him.
Caputo finally backed Bongino into admitting that he is not a registered voter in the district. At this point, Caputo asked really let the angry congressional hopeful have it.
So let’s see: You move down to Florida after losing two campaigns in Maryland; you say you’re going to stay in Maryland and fight; you tuck tail and run away to Florida; you go look to run in District 18, you see you’re not going to be able to win there; you try to run in District 19, you’re losing there,” he said. “You’re like a professional political candidate who loses.”
At this point, Bongino totally freaked the f*ck out and went ballistic on Caputo.
You’re a disgusting real piece of sh*t,” he snarled. “Go f*ck yourself, you piece of sh*t! You don’t know why I moved to Florida, motherf*cker! You shut your mouth, you f*cking coward!”
Bongino continued to shout “F*ck you” at Caputo before eventually hanging up.
