Mike Pompeo: What You Need To Know About The New US Secretary Of State

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is being questioned by a Senate committee today, and a lot of the focus is on Russia and North Korea. It was noticed that Pompeo wasn’t drinking water, but instead was drinking the president’s reported beverage of choice:

Drinking diet coke from a plastic bottle is a tacky look for a Secretary of State at a Congressional hearing. #Pompeo

Mike Pompeo drinking Diet Coke while testifying on Capitol Hill is so very Trumpy

Pompeo’s drink of choice brought up a possible new Resistance talking point: That the Trump administration might be sponsored, or something:

is pompeo being paid by diet coke …

The Resistance will be all over that! Out: Russia collusion. In: Diet Coke collusion.

This whole administration is sponsored by Diet Coke and lying.

Resistance media, you have your new talking point. RUN WITH IT.
