Eric Cantor might be a Young Gun, but he won’t be showing off his guns anytime soon à la his colleague Paul Ryan’s AC Slater-esque gym rat photo session published in Time this week.
The Republican house majority leader recapped the vice presidential debate with Morning Joe on Friday, but Cantor first tamped down any suggestion that he had any skeletons in his closet in the form of a P90x workout photo shoot.
“Are there an pictures of you lifting weights like there are of Paul? He’s pretty strut,” host Joe Scarborough joked.
“No,” Cantor asserted. “I can assure you not.”
“Are you sure?”
Time dug into its vault to unearth photos from when Ryan, who is now the GOP vice presidential nominee, was runner-up for the magazine’s Person of the Year. The photo spread was published online and in print on the very day of Ryan’s vice presidential debate debut.
