As the trio bickered, people began to notice that Vice President Mike Pence seemed a little...out of it?

One photo of the veep looking extra sleepy, shared by the Wall Street Journal's Vivian Salama, was memed immediately.

Incredible argument unfolding now in front of the press between trump, Pelosi and Schumer over votes for border security. Pelosi keeps asking not to discuss it in front of the press.

Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

Some wondered what Pence was thinking.

Pence would rather be anywhere else right now

Is he "waiting for the rapture"?

Mike Pence. Waiting for the rapture. https://t.co/rAcEOXbryp

Or "summoning the devil"?

A fuckin mess. Look at Pence, sitting there summoning the devil. https://t.co/r7AztxZhVj

Or is he daydreaming?

@vmsalama @Green_Footballs Inner thoughts ~ "Hmmmm President Mike Pence and First Lady Mother Pence."

Or praying?

Pence is literally praying to God the president will get bored and want lunch soon https://t.co/D0MvmfHG6D

"Pence is doing what he does best, closing his eyes."

Big arguments in the WH this am. Pence is doing what he does best, closing his eyes.

*counts on fingers.*

Pence (doing mental math): "How many days until this term is over?" https://t.co/uaIiFDwkiL

The bust of Martin Luther King Jr. is throwing shade.

Has there ever been a more unflattering juxtaposition than Pence staring at his hands while the bust of MLK silently looks on?

Others saw some parallels.

Pence's face this entire exchange is a throw-back to the old Eli Manning Face

And some could relate.

This image is amazing. Pence's face looks like mine when my children are fighting. 😂😂😂 https://t.co/2dHEZSAA1W
