In case you didn’t feel like sitting through 15 minutes of Attorney General Jeff Sessions answering important legal questions with “I don’t recall” during his recusal announcement — and we do not blame you — you may have missed the REAL scandal.

I feel like that green solo cup is some kind of signal. Like Woodward’s flower pot.

Even the cup itself had something to say:
Ha! What’s YOUR theory on the green solo cup??
