The Senate Health Committee on Tuesday held a hearing where experts including Dr. Anthony Fauci testified about the coronavirus response and reopening the country—but it was Sen. Tim Kaine’s (D-Va.) bandana look that caught the attention of many people following along.
Kaine, a member of the committee, wore a red and black bandana as a face covering during the questioning of the White House Coronavirus Task Force, following guidelines to wear a face covering while out in public.
In one photo in particular, Kaine’s bandana and fierce look was too much for Twitter users not to crack some jokes and praise him.
A lot of people said that Kaine looked like a cowboy, or like he belonged in the video game Red Dead Redemption 2.
At least Kaine is wearing a mask intentionally, not mocking the need to wear one like one lawmaker did just two months ago.
