Pictures by Getty Images photographer Mark Wilson showed Sasse — who was dressed in red shorts and a T-shirt — talking to Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) and Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.):

Schumer replied:

Twitter users were quick to poke fun at the images.

Meghan McCain, co-host of Fox News' "Outnumbered" and John McCain's daughter, tweeted that "This is my favorite thing that has ever happened on twitter!"
