Hold my beer, 2020.

Can you blame outgoing Rep. Joe Cunningham (D-SC) for capping off his time in Congress in the most 2020 way possible after a hell of a year?

In his farewell speech to Congress on Thursday, Cunningham’s sign-off proved ripe for Internet fodder as he cracked open a beer in the hopes of bipartisanship as we inch closer to leaving 2020 behind.

“For the betterment of this country, we have to come together, we have to sit down and listen to one another, and maybe even have a beer,” Cunningham said, before grabbing a beer can from an inside pocket of his jacket and cracking it open. “I raise this glass to my colleagues, both Democrats and Republicans. I yield back. ”

Cunningham take a sip from his beer can, and wore a mask during his grand finale.

Cunningham reportedly tried to bring in a six-pack, but was denied from doing so.

Twitter users raised their glass to Cunningham in short order:
