Ben Sasse Apologizes for Distraction During Hearing: ‘I Dumped a Dr. Pepper on Senator Cruz’

During AG Jeff Sessions‘ hearing today, Senator Ben Sasse awkwardly apologized for creating a distraction when he accidentally “dumped a Dr. Pepper on Senator [Ted] Cruz.”


Cruz and Sasse’s Twitter accounts both laughed it off a bit later:

Sasse even responded to a Twitter account cracking a joke about President Donald Trump’s campaign-era suggestion that Cruz’s father assassinated JFK — quipping that he was wearing a special t-shirt:

Now all we need is Dr. Pepper to host a peace summit in Washington. (Hell, if Slurpee can go to DC for a unity tour, anything is possible.)

You can watch Sasse’s apology above, via Fox News.
