Video posted to social media on Tuesday showed former US President Donald Trump’s lawyer, David Schoen, holding his head while taking a sip of water during Trump’s Senate impeachment trial.

The video sparked speculation as to what the attorney was doing. Activist and former spokesman Avi Mayer explained: “David Schoen is an Orthodox Jew. He covers his head when drinking water because that's what many observant Jews do. It is generally followed by the recitation of a blessing and is an expression of religiosity. Don't be jerks.”
