As Attorney General Jeff Sessions testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Tuesday, senators sought answers to questions about Russian interference in the 2016 election and possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian officials.

Then there's a question that many are asking on social media: Does Sessions look kind of like a Keebler elf - namely, Ernie Keebler, the best-known of the elfin bakers? 

Twitter was flooded Tuesday with comparisons between the former-senator and the animated elves that serve as mascots for Keebler cookies. 

 People from both sides of the political spectrum seems to be drawn to the elfin comparisons.

On Keebler's website, the elves are described as "ageless" beings who live in the Hollow Tree, also known as the "Fac-Tree."

"One thing we do know is that they have always remained true to their creed," the website reads. "We pledge to pursue our goal of baking cookies, crackers and snacks that are, by whatever measure one chooses to apply, Uncommonly Good." 

Kellogg, Keebler's parent company, did not immediately respond to Business Insider's request for comment on the similarities between the politician and the elf.
