At the end of a long day in the Senate on Wednesday, Sen. Rand Paul, R-Kentucky, donned a pair of sunglasses as he approached the Senate floor and went in for a fist bump with Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nevada.
Immediately following the fist bump, Paul proceeded to remove his shades with a smile and shrug as colleagues looked on.
Reid’s sunglasses have been a mainstay during public appearances on the Hill following an accident involving exercise equipment that left him unable to see in one eye.
This comes just off the news that Ray-Ban asked Paul’s campaign to stop selling their wayfarers with the “Rand” logo on them. The campaign did not have Ray-Ban’s consent, according to an email a spokesperson sent to The Hill.
The product has since been pulled from his campaign site but shades remain a part of Paul’s style – at least on the Senate floor Wednesday.
