Zoom meetings took off after the pandemic.

That’s provided a lot of convenience for people to meet from home and/or not to have to go to a fixed office.

But it’s also led to some embarrassing or troubling issues as members of the House Homeland Security Committee found out on Thursday during a meeting.

They were meeting to hear from and question DHS Sec. Alejandro Mayorkas.

But one of the Democrats on the Committee, Rep. Donald Payne (D-NJ) apparently had been sleeping or lying down in bed during the meeting, wearing a Captain America t-shirt that was too small to cover his belly and what looked like boxer shorts. He got up out of the bed with the camera focused on his naked belly and the top of his shorts.

Rep. Yvette Clarke (D-NY) kept speaking. She was reading something and didn’t appear to notice what was happening. Meanwhile, the reaction of Rep. Kat Cammack (R-FL) was priceless — complete shock then she covered her mouth to stop laughing. The meeting was, oddly, about cybersecurity.

Rep. Beth Van Duyne (R-TX) tweeted the video, “Another reason Democrats should get off Zoom and back to work. #TheStruggleIsReal.”

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. https://t.co/Sqh6BdZ4W7

While Payne himself failed to comment on the incident, one of his staffers tried to accuse Van Duyne of posting the video to fat-shame him.

“It’s no secret that as a diabetic the Congressman has his weight struggles. But we try to stick to policy here in Congress,” wrote Payne legislative director Sam Morgante.

Nice deflection and pretty insulting that you think you can throw that out there and
