Another day of the COVID-19 pandemic, another botched video call goes viral.
This time, it was Rep. Tom Emmer (R-Minn.) ― who appeared upside down and somewhat detached from reality after logging on remotely to a House financial services committee meeting on Wednesday.
Emmer, the chair of the National Republican Congressional Committee, began talking as if nothing was wrong.
Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) interrupted proceedings to ask Emmer if he was OK. "I am," he responded, admitting he was at a loss when it came to removing the filter.
Someone on the line asked if Emmer's snafu was a "metaphor."
Another suggested Emmer stand on his head.
"At least you're not a cat," said a third, referring to a Texas attorney's hilarious technical fail earlier this week.
A fourth person told Emmer he was going viral.
Emmer, who's previously advocated attacking Democrats as socialists, finally removed the filter.
He later appeared to see the funny side:
