WATCH: Massachusetts Governor Takes Tequila Shots With Boston Locals on St. Patrick’s Day

St. Patrick’s Day is in full effect on the streets of Boston.

Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker was spotted in a local bar downing tequila shots during the holiday celebration. Video footage posted to Twitter on Saturday shows the governor knocking back a shot and quickly biting into a slice of lime right after — as any professional drinker does with tequila.

Twitter user Becca Ruesch posted a video of Baker to the social media platform – which you can watch above – writing, “This just in: Charlie Baker, the Governor of Massachusetts, is taking shots with the locals in Southie #Boston.”

Baker appeared to celebrate the festivities throughout Saturday, posting photos from the parade to Twitter with the caption, “From Dot to Southie, Happy #StPatricksDay!”

For that reason, we won’t be judging the governor for drinking tequila on a day when whiskey or beer should be the go-to alcohol selection.
