No One Seems To Feel Bad About Nigel Farage Getting Hit With A Milkshake

The Brexit Party leader was making a campaign stop at Newcastle when a man walked up and hurled a milkshake at him.

In the video, a dripping Farage can be heard grumbling to his security team that he could’ve seen the attack coming “a mile away.”

Paul Crowther, the milkshake-wielder, was immediately arrested. He told the Guardian that it was a banana and salt caramel milkshake and that he had zero regrets.

“I was quite looking forward to it, but I think it went on a better purpose,” Crowther said.

Besides leading the charge to Brexit, Farage has made several appearances on this side of the pond to boost President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign. He even became a subject of scrutiny in special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe.
