Seems Democratic Senator Tom Carper couldn’t quite figure out how to unmute himself during a meeting being aired on CSPAN this morning and like many older people who can’t figure out fancy-schmancy technology, he got very angry and took it out on his staff member.
Except he had already unmuted himself so everyone watching heard everything he said.
Note, this is definitely not safe for work so if you’re in an environment where others may hear, you might want to turn your speakers down or wear headphones/earbuds.
Senator Tom Carper curses at his staff member cuz he can't figure out how to unmute himself. Calm down, sir. pic.twitter.com/p3cvkEp0BU

What’s really funny is we’re pretty sure he/she (we don’t want to misgender someone, ya’ know) knew we could hear him.
I hear he has a job opening for a new assistant

Wasn’t their fault but probably.
What’s wrong with Delaware?

Something in the water?
I'm sure he calls it the interwebs.

A real talent.
Carper might want to switch to decaf.
