Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) sent Twitter users right into a small-meltdown on Tuesday as he was caught on camera removing a set of glasses he wasn&rsquot really putting on.
It provided some comic relief throughout an at-occasions tense hearing, which at some point saw Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) accuse Nielsen of being “complicit” in President Donald Trump’s bigotry.

Hatch&rsquos office saw the funny side from the gaffe and joked via Twitter the 83-year-old senator was basically donning a set of &ldquoinvisible glasses&rdquo from hipster-favorite Warby Parker.
&ldquoThey&rsquore new, you&rsquove most likely never heard about them,&rdquo added Hatch&rsquos office, alongside an imitation listing for that spectacles:

“The Late Show” host Stephen Colbert, meanwhile, recognized Hatch&rsquos performance skills:
