Sen. Chuck Schumer was on the floor of the Senate when he got the news that the Supreme Court handed Trump another loss, this time on his administration's attempt to nullify DACA (Deferred Action For Childhood Arrivals). He stopped what he was doing to announce the news, and was so choked up, he was moved to tears.
He needed tissues, to clear his throat and a few breaths before he could move on. We know how he feels.
And just for fun, he joined the celebration outside the Supreme Court later in the day, to celebrate the DACA families' win over what he called "dark forces."

Addendum: Fun fact. I lived in Schumer's district when he was an Assemblyman, then a Congressman. His mother was a substitute teacher, and she subbed in my classroom in elementary school a bunch of times. Oy, how she used to brag about him. "My son, you know, he's an Assemblyman." "My son, you know, the Congressman..." We used to roll our eyes so hard. Had we known then what we know now the ranks to which he'd rise. — meh, we still would've acted like elementary school kids.
