GOP Senators Get Fidget Spinners To Aid “Boredom”

Roll Call reports:

Sen. Richard M. Burr is trying to help out his antsy Senate colleagues. The North Carolina Republican is providing an assortment of fidget spinners and other gizmos to his GOP colleagues at this week’s Thursday lunch.

Senators have been restless in the hours and hours they’re spending at their desks on the Senate floor during the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump. Dozens at a time have been spotted standing behind their desks, pacing in the chamber and even doing quad and neck stretches.

Each week a different Republican senator hosts the lunch, which is always a favorite event. This week it’s Burr’s turn. The Tar Heel State Republican is hosting a “Carolina Cookout,” according to a menu obtained by CQ Roll Call.
