Chuck Grassley and Tom Cotton did pushups (or something like them) while Joni Ernst counted them off during a Republican fundraising event in Iowa for the mental health of U.S. veterans.
Grassley asked Cotton to join him and attempt 22 push-ups, in honor of the 22 veterans who commit suicide on average each day, he said.
We can cut Grassley some slack (he's 87, after all, and his rumored dementia is an open secret in D.C.) but Cotton? He served in the military, you'd think he'd know how to do a pushup.
Neither of them had their chest hit the floor.
Twitter was not impressed!
