The next four years are going to be awesome if this is going to happen all the time.
Republican Sen. Pat Roberts just offered a valium to Democrat Sen. Ron Wyden before his next round of questions for Treasury Secretary nominee Steven Mnuchin:
Sen. Roberts during Treasury confirmation hearing offers Valium to fellow senator, says he's said it to POTUS, after criticism. Getting ugly

Sen. Roberts just told Sen. Wyden to take a valium and now the Senate Finance Committee is arguing over the horribly delivered joke

Sen. Roberts then defended the joke:
"A little pinprick of humor might not hurt this committee once in a while" to a prickly @RonWyden over a Valium joke
