The tough part about being virtual these days is balancing being professional and trying to have some level of comfort at home. And the thing we all dread is maybe being half dressed and the camera slipping or worse, what happened to Jeffrey Toobin who didn’t think he could be seen with his d*** in his hand. Well today wasn’t a good day for Congressman Donald Payne Jr. as he got caught in his pajamas when he thought his camera was off and belly hanging out.
It became a moment for the other side of the aisle to have a little fun like Texas Congresswoman Beth Van Duyne with a cheap shot saying, “Another reason Democrats should get off Zoom and back to work.” His Legislative Director Sam Morgante wrote “It’s no secret that as a diabetic the Congressman has his weight struggles. But we try to stick to policy here in Congress.” And by the way, anyone who can defend you exposing yourself on Zoom is a good employee that deserves a raise.
Payne addressed the situation saying, “Given your interest in Men’s Health, I’m a little surprised you haven’t joined our resolution in honor of Men’s Health Week. There’s still time to join though, we’d be happy to add you! We’ve also got the Colorectal Cancer Payment Fairness Act, H.R. 2594, which closes a Medicare loophole that leaves colonoscopy patients with a surprise bill if a polyp is removed during the procedure.”
That was actually a pretty good comeback. You can check out the video below…
