Jeff Sessions’ testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee Tuesday was a serious investigation into his role in a possible collusion between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin.
But it was the U.S. attorney general’s “creepy” smile that had Twitter obsessed. Sessions kept reverting back to a resting smirk through the hearing, which got a biting reaction from onlookers on social media.
“Has @jeffsessions offered these kinds of condescending smiles to other Senate questioners like he did with @SenKamalaHarris?” asked CNN White House Correspondent April Ryan.
Playwright and stand-up comedian R. Eric Thomas tweeted that he was “obsessed with Sessions’ pearly whites.
And “Full Frontal’s” Samantha Bee asked: “Has anyone ever seen Jeff Sessions’s teeth?”

I'm waiting for Jeff Sessions to smile sweetly & say "well bless your heart" in true southern fashion to these idiot Dems #SessionsHearings

It's great to watch sessions sort lean back and smile a little as the Republicans essentially testify FOR HIM on their turns. #amazing

The interchange of smirky smiles and serious expressions on Sessions face is highly suspect.

I'm really confused as to what makes sessions smile. It's just not very consistent.
