MashableToday's collective LOL at the expense of lawmakers came courtesy of Senator Orrin Hatch, who just reached for his glasses and, upon finding there were none there, decided to take them off anyway. SEE ALSO: This state senator wants to revive net neutrality in California The 83-year-old was deep in the middle of the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing for Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen when he made the gaffe. Of course Twitter pounced like a rabid fox on the nonsensical gesture. Here it is in all its glory. And here's perhaps the best of the inevitable jokes that followed. .@OrrinHatch we got you, dude pic.twitter.com/ymMhRuiiOS — The Daily Show (@TheDailyShow) January 16, 2018 Hatch’s communications director Matt Whitlock followed up the incident with a pretty boring explanation — “The senator wears reading glasses and normally reads over his notes one last time before questioning witnesses in a hearing” — before his official account made a slightly funnier joke on Twitter. Oh you mean his invisible glasses from Warby Parker? They're new, you've probably never heard of them. pic.twitter.com/pygTRwbJl7 — Senator Hatch Office (@senorrinhatch) January 16, 2018 The glasses episode was just a sideshow, however, to the most significant event of the hearing: New Jersey Democratic Senator Cory Booker slammed Nielsen for refusing to corroborate reports that Trump used the word "shithole" to refer to African nations. "Your silence and your amnesia is complicity”: Sen. Cory Booker unleashes on Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen after she says she doesn’t remember President Trump using the word “shithole” to refer to African countries at the DACA meeting https://t.co/tPCw1t4SSR pic.twitter.com/HY3ff6M637 — CNN (@CNN) January 16, 2018 "Why am I frankly seething with anger?" he asked her. "The commander-in-chief in an Oval Office meeting referring to people from African nations and Haitians with the most vulgar language ... that language festers." He finished with a devastating barb: "Your silence and your amnesia is complicit." WATCH: Someone shaved Donald Trump into the back of their head and it's frightening AF
