With the imminent testimony of FBI Director James Comey before the Senate Intelligence Committee today and the eyes of the nation on Capitol Hill, things are a bit tense in D.C. It’s best to handle the stressful political tempest with a cold drink in hand, and luckily for denizens of the capital, one local bar is helping drinkers make the best of the situation by giving away free drinks—but the gratis beverage only comes if President Trump fires off a tweet about Comey.
From opening at 9:30 a.m. until 4 p.m., or the end of the hearing, Union Pub will award a free round to everyone in the bar every time Trump sends out a tweet mentioning Comey. So, while the rest of the nation groans at the commander in chief’s every social media foible, Union Pub patrons will cheer (or at least have a beer to cry into).
As of this writing, Trump hasn’t yet let his fingers fly on his Twitter account. But given the president’s inability to hold his digital tongue, especially when it comes to his politically (and legally) charged relationship with the former FBI director, drinkers could score quite a few drinks over the course of the day.
