Say what you will about our politics in the U.S., politicians lie, make promises they don't keep, hyperbole is an every day occurrence during campaign season and each political side accuse each other of being uncivil periodically, but at least we don't see our candidates throwing shoes at one another, nor do they pull guns out at a live, televised debate.
It is different in Jordan!!!
Jordanian member of parliament pulled a gun on a political activist during a furious debate live on Jordanian TV on Friday.
Just a reminder that while our political system may not be perfect, we are far more "civil" than what you just watched above.
