What’s even better than the fact that Wendi, 42, lept to the defense of her 80-year-old hubby, Rupert Murdoch, yesterday, July 19 ? Listening to Jon Stewart talk about her smackdown!
If you missed Wendi Murdoch’s split second jump -up to smack the face of her husband Rupert’s attacker, comedian Jonnie Marbles, while Rupert was testifying in front of a British parliamentary committee, then click and watch this now!
Marbles was in the midst of throwing a shaving cream pie at Murdoch when BOOM — Wendi , who had been quietly sitting behind Rupert until that point , got HIM — real hard on the side of the face. She beat the police and Rupert’s son, James, who was sitting right next to him, to the punch — literally!
Wendi, a former school volleyball champion in China, knew exactly how to deliver a spike. Hooray!
Jon Stewart described her as delivering the punch with “devastating Chuck Norris handspeed.”
Furthermore, Stewart admitted that he finally saw that there was a positive aspect to the couple’s 40 plus year age difference. “I am not a big proponent of the four decade marriage age gap, but if ever there was a situation where it would pay dividend, it would be an ambush like that!”
