Senator Ben Sasse (R – Neb.) is really committing to the rollout of his new book The Vanishing American Adult. The junior senator was pictured in gym clothes, sitting on a balustrade while chatting with fellow senators (in grown-up clothes) on Thursday morning.
Sasse clearly found the images amusing and tweeted what he thought the photos looked like.
holy moly – it looks like @SenSchumer and I are smoking reefer outside a wedding…

Schumer reacted, saying “Well, that escalated quickly.”

The senator has been promoting his new book and when asked about the photos on the Glenn Beck radio program, Sasse said, “I’m just glad I’m not wearing Umbros [shorts], because I would’ve been in 1992 garb.”
