American congressman gets stuck upside down during Zoom House meeting

An American congressman from Minnesota has gone viral after he flipped his camera at a House committee hearing Wednesday — accidentally appearing upside down on a Zoom video conference.

GOP Rep. Tom Emmer was made fun of after the technological snafu during the House Financial Services Committee meeting.

“Will the gentleman suspend?” committee chairwoman Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) interrupted Emmer as he discussed job security during COVID-19.

“I’m sorry, Mr. Emmer — are you OK?” she asked him as their colleagues audibly chuckled in the background.

“I am,” he replied.

“You’re upside down, Tom,” someone pointed out.

“I don’t know how to fix that,” Emmer admitted.

During the topsy turvy episode, someone else humorously asked, “Is this a metaphor?” Another joked that Emmer was doing a headstand.

“You’re going viral, Tom!” someone shouted at him.

A clearly amused Emmers tweeted later Wednesday a screenshot of his upside-down face with the caption, “I am not a cat.”
