It’s time for another episode of “Great Moments in Bad Tea Party Optics.” Whatever will we tell the children?

As Santa made his way around the globe to deliver presents, one GOP congressman introduced a Christmas special into his diet.

Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) posted a photo to his Twitter account Wednesday morning, displaying a meal he had eaten in Oslo, Norway. Among the items on his plate was reindeer.

A few days earlier, King delivered his Christmas message to constituents, urging them to tell him what their #DCWishList was. King’s own wish was “that we would all pull together to restore the pillars of American exceptionalism.”
