Senator Chuck Schumer announced today that the Democrats would have enough votes to bring at least a temporary end to the federal government shutdown. The face of one senator behind Schumer during his announcement said it all, though not everybody knew who she was:

It’s an easy answer:
Patty Murray my Senator. Washington's first female U.S. senator. She is currently the 3rd most senior Democrat.

Well done. https://t.co/ONuDFV9VcY

It appears Rosie is telling a female senator to smile more. https://t.co/vHagVDkHIb

O’Donnell didn’t make many new fans on her side of the aisle with that question:

That is my senator from Washington State, Patty Murray
Should anyone be smiling at any of this?

Hey Rosie, that's Patty Murray, a dedicated democratic senator who has served for a very long time. you think it's ok to make fun of her? shame on you, Rosie. Tearing down other women isn't funny. Tearing down someone on your side is absolutely IDIOTIC.

That is Patty Murray and she's a United States Senator. Smiling is not a requirement for her job (or for any woman, for that matter). https://t.co/5lyvq3dbB1

That's Senator Murray – that's what she's looks like, it's her face. She's smart, a fighter – I WISH she was my senator. I sympathize with her, my mouth is downtown too and I have people telling to "smile" all of time.

THIS is the most competent & impactful Democratic lawmaker on Capitol Hill @Rosie. Why are you always in a fight?

#SmileShaming ?! How dare you…

Christ. Way to go. *That woman* is Senator Patty Murray of WA, the second most senior female Senator. Chair of the HELP Committee.

Patty Murray (D) Washington – great senator, not amused. Neither am I.
