Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein looked uncomfortable from the start at Attorney General Bill Barr’s press conference, holding his arms slightly out from his sides and staring down the barrel of the camera with a deadpan expression.
People on Twitter noticed.
Is it me or does Rod Rosenstein look like he’s being held hostage?

I did a shot each time Rod Rosenstein moved any individual muscle and I’ve never been more sober.

Rod Rosenstein looks like a hostage here. Just sayin’.

Rosenstein’s unnamed counterpart (Edward O’Callaghan, acting principal associate deputy attorney general) looked a trifle more animated, though it may have just been the inherent flair of the magenta tie-luscious facial hair combo.
