Chris Stewart (R-Utah) and Martha RobyMartha Dubina RobyTrump meeting leaders of video game industry Former Moore campaign manager to challenge GOP rep in Alabama Brooks’s prior attacks on Trump could hurt in Alabama Senate race MORE (R-Ala.) to a House Appropriations subcommittee last week with a reminder about one of the panel’s traditions: The new person gets the coffee.

Noting that Stewart beat Roby to the hearing (by a few seconds), Kingson said to the Utah freshman, “You can send [Roby] for your coffee. That is, after you get the rest of us coffee.”

Stewart took the ribbing in stride: “I want you to know I’m happy to get your coffee. I was in the Air Force for many years and what we did to the pilots was way, way worse than that.”
