Sen. Richard Burr Distributes Fidget Spinners Before Impeachment Trial

Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC) reportedly distributed gadgets like fidget spinners and stress balls to his colleagues ahead of the hours-long Senate impeachment trial on Thursday, Roll Call reported.

Burr, who held a “Carolina Cookout”  featuring all-American favorites like hamburgers, hot dogs, baked beans, coleslaw, potato salad, and ice cream as part of Thursday’s weekly lunch, reportedly distributed “an assortment of fidget spinners and other gizmos to his GOP colleagues,” according to Roll Call.

The move follows two days of well-documented boredom among senators, some of whom have dozed off, crafted paper airplanes, and passed notes. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) was spotted fiddling with a container holding lozenges and reportedly read the back of the container.

ABC News reporter Ben Siegel reported that Burr also provided stress balls:

GOP senators have been spotted with the gift from their colleague:

Fidget spinners are popular in the Senate chamber today. Sen. Burr has been using his blue one the whole time. Sen. Cotton has a purple one and Sen. Toomey has a white one but they haven’t picked them up yet….

Three senators were spotted with fidget spinners as impeachment trial proceedings began on Thursday.

Sens. Tom Cotton (purple spinner), Richard Burr (blue spinner), and Pat Toomey (white spinner) were spotted with spinners on their desks.

Burr has a blue fidget spinner laying on his desk. That’s the only thing on his desk. He’s not spinning it at the moment. https://t.co/7vaVEmttoD

As manager Jerry Nadler started presenting and played video from the House impeachment inquiry about the constitutional basis for impeachment, Burr picked up his blue fidget spinner and started twirling it.

Sen. Kelly Loeffler, who sits next to Burr, looked over and smiled.
