A new bromance is brewing in Washington D.C.

After a hard day’s work, Sen. Rand Paul donned his signature Ray-Ban shades and fist-bumped Sen. Harry Reid on the Senate floor on Wednesday.

Reid, 75, was already wearing sunglasses at the time, as he is recovering from eye surgery following a New Year’s Day exercising accident.

Republican presidential hopeful Paul, 52, who is an ophthalmologist, also gave the Democratic senator from Nevada some advice on the injury that left him temporarily blind in one eye, according to Politico.

Paul “has been so kind and thoughtful and considerate in visiting with me: giving me encouragement and some expert advice as to what he’s seen in the past. And giving me hope for better sight out of my right eye,” the Senate minority leader said on the Senate floor on March 18.

Major props and a fist bump? This is cross-party coolness at its finest.
