Following a workout accident last week, Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid addressed the 114th Congress from his Washington, D.C., home on Tuesday, joking about his injury while saying Senate Democrats would “fulfill expectations” of fighting for the middle class.

“As most people know, I fought for a couple of years. After any one of those fights, I never looked like I do now,” Reid said. “However, I didn’t get this black eye by spurring with Manny [Pacquiao], by challenging Floyd Mayweather, I didn’t go bull riding, I wasn’t riding a motorcycle — I was exercising in my new home.”
