New Jersey Congressman Mistakenly Bares Stomach, Boxers in Zoom Hearing Mishap
Rep. Donald Payne Jr. of New Jersey revealed his stomach and striped boxer shorts during a virtual hearing on Zoom.
Another embarrassing moment was captured on Zoom when a New Jersey congressman showed up to talk about the issues, but apparently forgot that he didn't have his pants on. Rep. Donald Payne Jr, a Democrat, mistakenly revealed his stomach and striped boxer shorts during the morning homeland security hearing.
The shocked look on the face of a Florida congresswoman said it all, and now the gaffe is getting a big reaction.
“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," a Republican congressman tweeted.
Earlier on the same virtual hearing, Payne appeared fully dressed in a shirt and tie, but at some point, he must have slipped into something a little more comfortable.
Payne’s aide tried to silence fat-shamers, saying, "It’s no secret that as a diabetic, the Congressman has his weight struggles."
Payne wouldn’t comment on what happened, only saying he’s focused on his work.
