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.

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.
