In honor of Democratic Minority Leader Harry Reid’s announced 2017 departure from the Senate, The Daily Caller News Foundation has assembled just a few of the craziest, most insane, looniest things the gentleman from Nevada has shared with us over his decades in office. Herewith, Reid’s greatest hits.

Reid apologized in August for for making a few offensive and super lame Asian jokes at an Asian Chamber of Commerce event. “I don’t think you’re smarter than everybody else, but you’ve convinced a lot of us you are,” Reid said to a few laughs. Then he quipped, “One problem I’ve had today is keeping my Wongs straight.”
He later said the jokes were in very poor taste: “Sometimes I say the wrong thing.”
