During today's Senate testimony by former FBI head James Comey, the last public questions went to Senator John McCain (R-Arizona). Up until that point, the Comey hearing had been tremendously exciting, but also filled with coherent statements that generally made sense. McCain's testimony--in which he repeatedly calls Trump "President Comey" and seems to confuse the Clinton email server investigation with the investigation into Russian's interference with the election--put an end to that.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions also took part in a public hearing on Tuesday so that he could be questioned by the Senate about contacts held with Russian officials and his part in the firing of FBI director James Comey. It was a mostly ineffective hour long questioning as he mostly refused to directly answer and of the Senators questions on the matter.
When it was time for Senator Kamala Harris to question Sessions, she stuck to her guns and demanded he explain why he was refusing to answer certain questions. Sessions got antsy, at one time exclaiming that Harris was making him "nervous." It wasn't a good look for the current Attorney General and it's a response that's surely going to upset his often rage-filled boss, President Donald Trump.
People on the Internet were confused—and concerned.
The Washington Post, luckily, had a writer try to make sense of McCain's questioning.
But even the analysis is mostly like ¯\_(ツ)_/¯. "Was he arguing that Comey should publicly exonerate President Trump before the Russia investigation is finished?" the Post analysis says. "Was he arguing that Comey didn't investigate Clinton vigorously enough? Was he arguing that the FBI applied different standards to the two candidates? It's hard to say, but McCain seemed to be trying to blunt the effect of Comey's testimony about President Trump."
But the Internet seems to have figured out how President Trump can solve this weirdness.
Update: McCain released a statement claiming he was "up late watching the Diamondbacks night games."
