Democratic senator Tom Carper was caught on a hot mic uttering a string of profanities during the Senate’s remote questioning of Postmaster General Louis DeJoy Friday morning.
Because of the coronavirus pandemic and the current Senate recess, DeJoy, a Republican fundraiser, fielded questions about the United States Postal Service’s financial situation from the Senate Homeland Security Committee over Zoom. Apparently, Carper was having some difficulties with his audio.
In the clip, posted far and wide by observers and available below, Carper was called on to question DeJoy but there was only silence, so the Delaware politician was skipped over in favor of Sen. James Lankford. Carper then appeared on-screen, peering at someone out of the frame and uttering “F—! F—! F—!”
An aide appears on screen an attempts to fix something on Carper’s computer.
