“Is this the Spain we want? Because it makes me ashamed. They said the train left 45 minutes late. As if it doesn’t come out! We are talking about a hyperviolent attack to a deputy of the Cortes Generales,” the comedian ironically said.

After the images went viral, Puente himself publicly responded to Lago by rescuing a video in which he was harassed by an anti-vaccine woman in the middle of the street. In the scene, the comedian reacted nervously and confronted the stalker. “Surely Miguel Lago can put himself in position and imagine that the same thing had happened to him in a train car, and that he had to have traveled with that person in that car for an hour. And if you add to that that instead of a woman we are talking about a violent guy…,” the politician wrote on his Twitter account.
