Rod Rosenstein looked deadpan as William Barr spoke. And Twitter took note

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein stood with a deadpan expression as Attorney General William Barr briefed reporters ahead of the release of a redacted version of Robert Mueller's report.

And Twitter took note.

Rosenstein was behind Barr as the attorney general told reporters that Muller's report found "no evidence" of a conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russia to interfere in the 2016 presidential election. Barr said he and Rosenstein "disagreed" with some of Mueller's legal theories as it relates to instances of possible obstruction by the president.

Rosenstein, who oversaw the Russia probe after then Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself, was often a target of President Donald Trump's disapproval of the probe. So when he stood with Barr on Thursday, barely blinking, the social media jokes began:
