Former WWE wrestler turned Hollywood megastar Dave Bautista lashed out at Alabama Congressman Mo Brooks over the Republican's use of a bomb threat at the Capitol in Washington this week as a way to capitalize politically by claiming to empathize with terrorist bombers. Bautista, who has expanded his long-running feud with fellow WWE Hall-of-Famer Donald Trump after Trump was pinned clean by Joe Biden in the main event of the 2020 Election PPV and also lost his rematch during the failed coup attempt on January 6th, has particular disdain for Republicans who continue to use Trumpism for their own political gain.
Brooks posted a statement on the bomb threat in which he claimed to understand why Americans would want to blow up the capital because of Democrats pushing what Brooks pretends to believe is a socialist agenda.
