(FOX NEWS) – Outgoing Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid delivered his farewell address Thursday after serving in political office for more than three decades – leaving in his wake a trail of gaffes and gloves-off political punches that won’t soon be forgotten.
Despite Reid’s reputation for rhetorical warfare, he and his adversaries set aside their differences for Thursday’s sendoff.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., introduced Reid, D-Nev., highlighting a rarely seen friendship between the two.
“Go ahead and make up all the stories you want, but the truth is we don’t [despise one another],” Reid said. “Here’s one you can write: thank you, Mitch.”
