Tony Kornheiser Angers Lance Armstrong With "Just Run 'em Over" Rant About Cyclists

Washington DC is about to become more bicycle-friendly. Tony Kornheiser is not a fan of this. Last week on his radio show, he said: “I think this is a terrible, terrible idea … when 3 or 4 of these people start riding abreast … I swear to you … it’s all you can do to not run them down! Like Wile E. Coyote! Run ’em over! Get the hell out of my way … Am I wrong here?”

Kornheiser continued: “Someone’s going to hate me for this … am I wrong? … They don’t share the road, they dominate the road and dare you to run them down … so you tap them … I’m not saying you kill them, just tap them … if you’re not rubbing, you’re not racing, right?”

Lance Armstrong must have been tipped off by a fan, because he reacted angrily last night: “Listening to Tony Kornheiser’s comments/rant on ESPN radio re: cyclists. Disgusting, ignorant, foolish. What a complete f-ing idiot.” And he followed it with another tweet saying, “big mistake.”

What is Armstrong so worked up about? We laughed a few times at Kornheiser’s rant and there’s definitely a kernel of truth to it. to Think he was advocating people running down cyclists is silly.

Because you want to see it first!
