Orrin, 83, ignored the slip up and went on to question Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen without hesitation.

Hatch's office saw the amusing side of the gaffe and joked via Twitter that the 83-year-old senator was in fact donning a pair of "invisible glasses" from hipster-favorite Warby Parker.

He tweeted a screengrab of the Warby Parker website showing showing the fake so-called invisible specs.

Sen. Orrin Hatch joked about his new invisible glasses after an attempt to remove a non-existent pair from his face sent the internet into a meltdown. He got them at Diagon Alley! Muggles can't see them!,' one Twitter user joked.

Hatch - who announced earlier this month that he would retire at the end of the year - has a "good, self-deprecating sense of humor", according to Whitlock, which is why he chose to "join in on the "invisible glasses" joke".
