The Funniest Tweets About the Jeff Sessions Hearing

Earlier today Attorney General Jeff Sessions set a new land speed record for running away from questions during a hearing into the firing of James Comey and the Trump Administration’s ties to Russia. If you really miss those childhood visits to your grandpa at the nursing home, just go watch almost any question that Sessions was asked today, and you’ll remember what it’s like to watch a withered old-timer who can’t remember anything. Of course, in Sessions’s case, this isn’t memory loss or age-related befuddlement but blatant stonewalling. “I don’t recall” is what you say when you don’t want to tell the truth but really don’t want to lie under oath, and that’s about all the man did say today. Twitter, as always, reacted in good faith and cheer to the proceedings, with a strong stream of mockery, derision and indignation rushing out throughout the afternoon. Here’s the best of ‘em all.
