This photo is delighting the internet

Doug Jones was sworn in as the first Democratic U.S. Senator from Alabama in 30 years on Wednesday. But it was this a photo of his son, Carson Jones, that went took the internet by son.

In the photo, Carson, appears to be giving U.S. Vice President Mike Pence some serious side-eye, even as Pence swears his father into the U.S. Senate.

While the photo could just be a single misinterpreted moment (the photographer says it is), it’s not hard to see why the photo would resonate as it has; Jones’ son is gay, and Pence is famous for espousing anti-gay rhetoric and supporting anti-LGBT legislation (such as the controversial law in Indiana that allowed businesses to discriminate against LGBT people).
