Republican Senator Ben Sasse shared a picture on Twitter of himself and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer outside the U.S. Capitol building. He said that they look like smoking marijuana during a wedding. It immediately went viral. Although that’s not what they are doing, one Twitter user immediately photoshopped the picture and mocked them.

The caption read: “holy moly — it looks like @SenSchumer and I are smoking reefer outside a wedding.”

Schumer responded shortly after, using an infamous Anchorman quote as his comeback.


After the photo started to gain traction, one Twitter user named Darth used his Photoshop skills to edit in a “joint.”


Sasse shot back with a witty one-liner.


The photo, which also included Sen. Tom Cotton, was retweeted by The Washington Free Beacon with a caption contest.

Among the top replies was from Jay Caruso, assistant managing editor of RedState.

Caruso captioned the photo with: “This is the second time I told him not to sit up there! Do something about it, Tom, or else.”

Philip Wegmann, a writer at the Washington Examiner, also earned a fair number of “favorites” by referencing a quote from Forrest Gump:

“One day, for no particular reason, I decided to go for a little run,” he wrote.

Wegmann was referring to Sasse’s attire, which consisted of bright red running shorts and a plain white T-shirt.

You can find everything on Twitter. Ben Sasse and Chuck Schummer sure know how to make fun of themselves. Good for them!
