As Santa made his way around the globe to deliver presents, one GOP congressman introduced a Christmas special into his diet.
Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) posted a photo to his Twitter account Wednesday morning, displaying a meal he had eaten in Oslo, Norway. Among the items on his plate was reindeer.
From Oslo, Merry Christmas season to my Scandinavian friends. "Enjoyed" a meal of lutefisk, reindeer, & lefse. pic.twitter.com/sG9E2l07zK

A few days earlier, King delivered his Christmas message to constituents, urging them to tell him what their #DCWishList was. King's own wish was "that we would all pull together to restore the pillars of American exceptionalism."
Watch King's full message below, via his YouTube account.
UPDATE (2:45 p.m. ET) -- According to CNN food editor Kat Kinsman, eating reindeer is "totally normal" considering where King is. Norway has a "robust wild reindeer population" and if grown in the wild "that's the most sustainably raised food that you can get."
