Even the GOP’s eyewear is in fact LIE-wear! Ha!
Srsly though, if you thought Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen saying she didn’t know whether Norway was a predominantly white country was the most embarrassing moment of her Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, hold Orrin Hatch‘s ginger ale.
The Utah Republican went viral on Tuesday when he was caught on camera doing something many glasses wearers have done — unconsciously grabbed for glasses he wasn’t wearing at the time!
Twitter had a big laugh at the viral moment; the tweet has been liked by over 100K people and the video viewed nearly 3 MILLION times!
The Senator (and his social team), however, had the best retort, tweeting:
We really appreciate someone who can laugh at themselves. Good show!
But in all seriousness, Senator Hatch is also the man who said this about the kids helped out by the Childhood Health Insurance Program:
“I have a rough time wanting to spend billions and billions and trillions of dollars to help people who won’t help themselves, won’t lift a finger and expect the federal government to do everything.”
You’re a disgrace and under your kind of leadership “invisible glasses” are the only kind impoverished children would be able to afford.
Now hit us back with one of those quippy responses. Ass.
