We now have another reason to love the many LGBTQ politicians in office across the USA. There’s more people to openly mock Mike Pence!
In an act reminiscent of when U.S. Senator Doug Jones’ gay son gave Pence side-eye while at his father’s swearing-in, Senator Kyrsten Sinema (D-Arizona) trolled Pence, and unsafe Americans during COVID times, at a similar event. Sinema, who is openly bisexual, was present to help Mark Kelly be sworn in as Arizona’s second Democratic senator. Specifically, Sinema held the bible for Kelly. Meanwhile, Vice President Mike Pence led Kelly in swearing his oath.
But what made the moment go viral on Twitter? Sinema was wearing a purple wig and a Zebra coat. On top of that, Sinema gave Pence a similar glare to the one Carson Jones gave Pence in 2018.

While the glare is pretty self-explanatory, considering the Vice President’s anti-gay policy-making throughout his political career, what was the reason for Simena’s outfit? Well, it was a response to the dangerous practices of U.S. citizens during the coronavirus pandemic. As the New York Daily News reports, the senator wore the clothing to raise awareness about taking trips to the hairdresser. Since this past Spring, Sinema has been wearing a $13 wig to highlight the risk of going to a hair salon.
With that “glare,” that coat, and that wig, Sinema sparked a train of tweets online.

Your point, which the fact of which others may not be aware, refers to the fact that Sinema is the only professed atheist in Congress (the last I checked anyway). Oh the sweet delicious nectar of irony of her holding the bible for a ceremony that Pence is officiating. 😊

Like that Geico commercial…
"Don't say it. Don't say it"
"He's got blue hair!"
