GOP Rep. Don Young Headbutts a Camera When Asked a Question About Trump
Republican Congressman Don Young clearly didn’t want to answer a question about President Donald Trump and impeachment, so he headbutted the camera of those asking the question. Young was questioned by progressive group MoveOn.org when the bizarre event took place.
They asked Young if it was OK for the President to ask foreign governments to interfere in a U.S. election.

The 24-term congressman has been in the House of Representatives since 1973. He did not answer MoveOn.org’s question following the headbutt. Young quickly became a figure of fun on Twitter.
Q: Do you think it's OK for the president of the United States to pressure foreign governments to interfere in our elections?

Young was asked the same question repeatedly until he eventually headbutted the camera and said “There you go” before walking away and chuckling.
