Three weeks after Democrat Doug Jones beat Roy Moore in the race for the Alabama Senate, he came face to face with Mike Pence for the swearing-in ceremony. So did his son, Carson Jones, who happens to be gay. In a photo of the three, Carson expresses what everyone else is thinking about Pence without saying a word. We think it's safe to say he's nailed the art of the side-eye.
A photo of him subtly staring Pence down is making its rounds on the internet, including on Carson's own Instagram. "#Dougjones#swearingin #washingtondc #capitol#wemadeit #nocaptionneeded," he captioned it.

Pence has an abysmal record for LGBT rights. He opposes same-sex marriage, has proposed reallocating HIV prevention funds for conversion therapy and signed a "religious freedom" bill letting business owners in Indiana discriminate against LGBT people. Trump once reportedly joked that his vice president "wants to hang" all gay people.
So, the internet is giving Carson props for his covert but clear shading. We're not sure what's going through his head, but people can imagine.

My 2018 aesthetic will be Carson Jones sideeyeing homophobe Mike Pence while his father, Doug Jones, is sworn into the US Senate. 😏 🏳️🌈 pic.twitter.com/l21UJ37Q8p— DCHomos (@DCHomos) January 3, 2018
If you burn the picture of Carson Jones staring at Mike Pence over a bowl full of lube, white gay man appears to thank Madonna for the invention of Voguing.— Phillip Henry (@MajorPhilebrity) January 4, 2018
