A journalist became an inadvertent viral star of yesterday’s impeachment hearings as she was spotted chugging a cup of coffee during the live coverage.
Emma Dumain took an enthusiastic sip from her coffee mug while Lt Col Alexander Vindman was giving evidence to Congress.
Viewers were quick to celebrate the moment of light relief on a weighty day of testimony.
‘Watching this mysterious woman chug her coffee, notice she’s on camera, and then finish chugging it is a lot more interesting than the actual testimony,’ said one.
Some Twitter users empathised with the reporter, one saying: ‘That woman drinking coffee is all of us’.
Another said: ‘The lady downing the coffee behind Lt Col Vindman is my hero.’
Others commented on her enthusiasm for the drink, one saying: ‘When the coffee is just that good.’
