This was mostly because the senator spent a good chunk of his seven-minute questioning time asking Comey about Hillary Clinton’s emails instead of focusing on the current investigation involving President Donald Trump’s campaign aides and their contact with Russian officials during the 2016 election.
Baffled, Comey told McCain, that “the Clinton email investigation was complete,” but McCain kept at it.
Comey wasn’t alone in his bewilderment. People echoed a similar sentiment on Twitter.
Emma Loop, a Capitol Hill reporter for Buzzfeed News, was at the hearing and tweeted a few of senators’ facial expressions while McCain spoke, and they’re pretty telling:
The best of which was Sen. Marco Rubio’s (R-Fla.) face.
People really resonated with Rubio’s dumbfounded facial expression.
Who knew Rubio could actually be relatable?
