Liam Neeson is a badass, okay? You know it, I know it — it’s a fact of life. The man kicked Batman’s butt, taught Obi-Wan Kenobi everything he knew, commanded the gods of Mount Olympus and killed, like, half of Paris.

On Saturday, Neeson taught President Obama how to deal with Vladimir Putin.

And you know what Neeson is using those skills for now? He's furious over New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio's proposed ban on horse-drawn carriages.

“This is an industry that’s been here since before Abraham Lincoln’s first inauguration,” Neeson told carriage drivers and Teamsters Union members on Sunday. “It’s a connection with our past. It’s a connection with our history.”
