What this photo from Tuesday tells me is that Sen. Charles Schumer walked around the corner, saw Sen. Lamar Alexander talking to reporters and froze.

Both men are conference leaders for their respective parties, and Schumer is just completely frozen — like the statues beside him — absorbing the news.
