    Thomas Earl Emmer, an American politician, lobbyist and attorney, has served as the US Representative for Minnesota's 6th congressional district since January 2015. Emmer also served as a member of the Minnesota House of Representatives between 2005 and 2011.

    During an online House Financial Services meeting this week, Rep. Tom Emmer’s (R-Minn.) screen became stuck upside down in the middle of a video.

    “I don’t know how to fix that,” Emmer said when a colleague told him he was upside down on the screen. “I don’t know what happened, it just came on this way. I turned it off and back on and I’m still,” Emmer added.

    During the video, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) asked Emmer if he could figure out how to fix the video while other colleagues made light-hearted comments at Emmer, comparing him to the Presidio County attorney, Rod Ponton, who inadvertently appeared as a filter-generated cat during an online court hearing in southwest Texas this week.

    “At least you’re not a cat,” one member said while another told Emmer to try “standing on your head.”

    “You’re going viral, Tom,” another added.
