Cory Booker used his cubby at the impeachment trial for an incredibly corny joke

It's hard to make jokes during an impeachment, but Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) is making it work.

Booker is among the 100 senators acting as jurors in the impeachment trial of President Trump, and all of them have to stash their electronics in marked cubbies while they're inside the Senate chambers. But as Sen. Angus King (I-Maine) documented on his Instagram Wednesday morning, Booker is using his cubby to store a snack that doubles as an excellent visual gag.

A little behind-the-scenes humor amidst the drama of the first day of the impeachment trial. No electronic devices are allowed on the floor during the trial, so cubbies have been installed in each cloakroom, complete with charging cables. Last night, Cory Booker decided to rib us iPhone folks with his own real-life Apple. But does it stream CNN? #corybooker #iphone #adamandeve #impeachmentbehindthescenes

Booker may have dropped out of the presidential race earlier this month, but this joke probably would've earned him a boost from corny dads everywhere.
