Joe Biden’s pick of Kamala Harris to be his running mate is obviously the big news of the moment, but it would be criminal if we were to overlook this C-SPAN footage of Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in the Czech Republic enjoying a beer while not wearing a mask and not social distancing.

Are we sure it wasn’t a protest?

Are you really trying to convince us that you keep your mask on when drinking something?

I find it refreshing to see a scene that depicts some sort of normalcy. I had drinks with my neighbors last weekend. At the same table. Without masks…

Same maskless distancing I see outside every restaurant and pub in my blue state…

You can find that in any outside open restaurant in the US.

Oh noes! They're having fun! And they're doing it in a way they would be allowed to in many outdoor restaurants/gatherings in America today under current opening phases and rules https://t.co/3iuD8NkTZ0

Cheers ? to Sec Pompeo!

@SecPompeo Sir, it looks to me like you were hard at work! Amazing what conversations and bonds can be made over a beer or two! I have no doubt, the Czech People found this as refreshing as I did!

I love the Czech Republic.

I’d have a beer with Pompeo!

I'm a little disappointed he didn't knock it out in one swaller….giggles… he seems to be a really good dude.??

They're his Czech mates.

Let's also realize they were all tested before this beer event.
— Svendiggity (@steviet22) August 11, 2020
BTW, you can't go to the Czech Republic and not have beer. That's just wrong.

How great to see people enjoying a beer together outdoors.
These New Yorkers don't seem to be taking the whole stay-at-home-order, social-distancing thing very seriously [video, pic] https://t.co/hdMJGpN01X
