US Senator Orrin Hatch Removes ‘Invisible Glasses’ in Viral Video, Twitterati Couldn’t Stop Laughing Out Loud
The internet is a horde of amazing things and you never know which interesting, hilarious or funny thing you might come across. On Tuesday, January 16, 2018, the internet found a hilarious incident which made people on twitter laugh out loud. In a video that has gone viral on social media, US Senator Orrin Hatch is seen ‘removing his glasses’ while he was speaking during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing with Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen. You might think what the big thing about removing one’s glasses is but the fact is that the US Senator Orrin Hatch was not wearing any spectacles and he seemed to remove an invisible pair of glasses. People on Twitter went berserk and couldn’t stop talking about the video.
The octogenarian US Senator Orrin Hatch was totally oblivious to the fact that he wasn’t wearing any glasses and continued with his narration without realizing his mistake or even taking a pause. However, the constant vigilance that the Twitterati keeps on such funny things they lost their calm and couldn’t stop laughing at the sheer absent-mindedness of the Senator. Most people who wear spectacles would identify with the fact that adjusting, removing and wearing glasses becomes a daily habit which one can do even without giving it any thought. Probably the Senator was also automatically removing his ‘invisible glasses’ and was in auto-pilot mode.

Sample the tweets from Twitterati
Switching from glasses to contacts
I do this all the time when I switch from glasses to contacts. Or I’ll try and adjust them using the bridge over my nose.

Separating the glasses wearers from the non glasses wearers
I think this tweet is really separating the glasses wearers from the non glasses wearers today.

What a joke
Far away on Senator Orrin Hatch’s nightstand, his glasses eye-rolled so hard they fell on the floor. https://t.co/QqG7lDpHhJ

He forgot he wasn’t wearing glasses, but he followed through on the pantomime, which I respect. https://t.co/yJS7S0wZ2R

An alternate reality
What if we’re all wearing glasses and Orrin Hatch is the only one who can see them? https://t.co/lwXjjFVyJ8

The Senator’s video has seriously given a reason to the Twitterati to laugh out loud. This is probably the best video on the internet today and is not a meme but actually a mime.
