Two US congressmen used an impromptu road trip to Washington to answer questions on Facebook Live.
After Texas Reps. Beto O'Rourke, a Democrat, and Will Hurd, a Republican, had their flights canceled Tuesday because of a blizzard, they decided to hop in a car and drive from San Antonio, Texas, to Washington to be present for votes at the capitol on Wednesday.
The journey turned into a mobile town hall with the two answering policy questions and talking about everything from using a FitBit to cookies to ideal driving positions. The candid tone makes the live video surprisingly compelling.
Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg even shared the live video in a post:
So how is the journey going? Is there lots of fights and yelling? Spoiler alert: The two legislators get along really well and have polite and engaging policy discussions. Perhaps more policy talks should take place on long road trips?
