A video of the technical difficulties of a US member of parliament who gets stuck “upside down” in a teleconference goes like wildfire on the internet.
Tom Emmer, a Member of the House of Representatives, was addressing the Finance Committee of the US Congress when the technical problems took a turn for the worse.
“Excuse me, Mr. Emmer. “I’m fine with you,” said committee chair Maxine Waters. “You’re upside down, Tom,” Waters said.
“At least you’re not a cat,” said Emmer’s colleague in the committee, probably referring to the lawyer. Rod Ponton who recently got stuck with a cat filter at a remote meeting.
