While the political Twittersphere buzzed with serious reactions to Attorney General Jeff Sessions' Senate testimony, some journalists chose to lighten the mood with jokes mocking the AG's comments and appearance as he spoke before the Senate Intelligence Committee.
Daily Beast writer Erin Gloria Ryan mocked the tone of the senators questioning the AG when she tweeted "Attorney General Sessions, did you or did you not deliberately lead Sarah deep into the Labyrinth to curry favor with the Goblin King?"
Mocking the seemingly light-handed questions about the AG's undisclosed meetings with Russian operatives posed by Sen. Roy Blunt (R-MO), writer Linda Tirado said "I think Blunt and Sessions might make out soon."
