Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker reportedly went to President Donald Trump’s Washington, DC hotel following his testimony in front of the House Judiciary Committee on Friday.
News of Whitaker at Trump’s hotel was reported by Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times journalist Maggie Haberman.
The internet hilariously roasted Whitaker for paying such a tribute to his patron.
Here is some of what people were saying:
