Why Did an Alaska Congressman Headbutt a Camera?

The left-wing activist was not on his good side.

An Alaskan congressman head-butted a left-wing activist group’s camera after being asked about foreign interference in government elections, video shows.

Republican Alaska Rep. Don Young, 86, slowly head-butted a camera as media from the left-wing activist group MoveOn followed Young down the hall, a video posted by Move On shows.

“Watch Republican Congressman @RepDonYoung (R-AK) headbutt the camera when we asked him if it’s okay to ask foreign governments to interfere in our elections,” MoveOn wrote in a tweet. “And no, he never answered the question.”

The video shows MoveOn media following Young and questioning him about foreign governments interfering in elections, asking “Is that an acceptable thing to have happen? It’s a simple yes or no question.”

Young approaches the videographer and slowly head-butts the camera before saying with a smile, “There you go.”

Young’s office did not immediately respond to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.
