Sen. Tom Carper, Democrat from Delaware, got a little frustrated Friday with a technical glitch during a hearing with President Trump’s postmaster general.
After he was called on the offer his questions, there was silence. But the silence mercifully ended with Carper turning toward a staffer, who either was on the receiving end of a curse-laden tirade or whose name is “Fuck Fuck Fuck.”
She was forced to come over next to the unmasked Carper and try to fix the problem.

Carper tried to pass his abuse of his staff off as a public service, saying he gets so angry about attacks on the post office supposedly being waged by President Trump.
Those who know me know that there are few things that get me more fired up than protecting the Postal Service!#DontMessWithUSPS
