The congressman has no pants

By Gabe Kaminsky, The Federalist

Channeling his inner Brian Stelter, the CNN host who showed viewers he proudly goes pantless while on national television, a Democrat House member got caught in his boxers and a Captain America shirt in a Zoom congressional hearing.

The video began circulating on Twitter, which shows New Jersey Rep. Donald Payne questionably dressed for a House Committee on Homeland Security meeting to decide how much funding the department should receive in 2022. The hearing aired on C-SPAN Thursday morning.

Payne is seen in the below video waking from a nap, to which he got off his bed and his belly hung out. He wore light blue underwear and a darker Captain America t-shirt. Upon leaving the camera, other congressmen can be seen in awe.

A spokesman for the New Jersey Democrat’s office confirmed the video is legitimate and that he was in his underwear. “Another reason Democrats should get off Zoom and back to work. #The StruggleisReal,” tweeted Texas Republican Rep. Beth Van Duyne.

 

“If taxpayers are paying you $174,000 per year, getting out of bed and putting some clothes on for work seems like it should be a minimum requirement,” Rep. Brian Mast, R-Fla., tweeted.

Payne issued a statement to Fox News saying that “As a public servant, my focus has always been the public good and my work to better the lives of my constituents and all Americans, regardless of the circumstances.”
