It’s a bird, it’s a plane… it’s Superhunk.
On day 8 of Thursday’s Capitol riot hearings, while the court deliberated over former President Donald Trump’s alleged role in last year’s Jan. 6 riots, many viewers were thinking the same thing — who was that hot Clark Kent lookalike sitting in the crowd? That’s right, an unidentified Superman doppelganger stole the show at the hearings with the hashtag “Clark Kent” trending on Twitter late Thursday night.
“Ok yes Trump is guilty….BUT WHO IS THIS…Ok Clark Kent!!” exclaimed one Twitter user of the unidentified eye candy.
The mystery man in question, who was seated behind witnesses Matthew Pottinger and Sarah Matthews, was sporting a sleek navy suit and glasses — earning him comparisons to Superman’s bespectacled reporter alter-ego, Clark Kent.
Social media went absolutely gaga over the handsome Man Of Steel facsimile.
One awestruck commenter quipped, “Why are people questioning Clark Kent’s presence at the Jan. 6 hearings? He’s obviously covering the event for the Daily Planet.”
“When you have no idea you’re trending and about to walk out of that hearing to a modeling contract, a marriage proposal and a three-way,” fawned another fanboy.
One Twitter wit joked attached a screenshot of the man adjusting his glasses, with the caption: “This is so infuriating you got Clark Kent about to go full Superman.”
Even Bravo boss Andy Cohen wanted to know the identity of the aesthetically-endowed stranger.
“Who on earth is this?” Cohen wondered, before asking if Superhunk was seeing anyone.
New York Magazine writer Yashar Ali teased that he knows who the mystery man is, but didn’t reveal his source, only disclosing that the attractive attendee is off the market. “The good looking man sitting behind Pottinger is not single,” he wrote. “That’s all I will say and that’s all you need to know!”
Unfortunately, court Clark Kent’s identity remains a mystery following the hearing, in which the House select committee investigated Trump’s activities during the Jan 6. riots when rioters swarmed the Capitol.
They specifically sought to reconstruct Trump’s activities — or lack thereof — over a 187-minute period between the end of his speech at a rally near the White House at 1:10 p.m. and a begrudging video message telling his supporters: “You have to go home now” at 4:17 p.m.
The action was narrated by committee members Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) and Elaine Lauria (D-Va.), who revealed that Trump was told immediately after returning to the White House from his “Stop the Steal” event that clashes were taking place a short distance down Pennsylvania Avenue.
“Within 15 minutes of leaving the stage, President Trump knew that the Capitol was besieged and under attack,” Luria said, adding: “At 1:25, President Trump went to the private dining room off the Oval Office. From 1:25 until 4:00, the president stayed in his dining room … The TV was tuned to Fox News all afternoon.”
“Other witnesses confirmed that President Trump was in the dining room with the TV on for more than two and a half hours,” she went on. “There was no official record of what President Trump did while in the dining room.”
The narrative was interspersed with footage of violence at the Capitol that was being beamed around the world on cable news channels.
