Wheel of Fortune fans would like to solve the puzzle after a photographed surfaced online of host Pat Sajak posing with GOP lawmaker Marjorie Taylor Greene. In the snap (below), the 75-year-old TV icon has his arms wrapped around the Georgia politician, as well as Bryan Glenn, a reporter from Right Side Broadcasting Network, a right-wing media company.

As the pic began to make the rounds via Twitter on Saturday (September 17), some fans appeared stunned, as they took the photo as confirmation of Pat supporting Marjorie, who was recently accused of kicking an 18-year-old activist outside the Capitol on September 16, which she denies, according to The Washington Post. This comes after she was in hot water for guest speaking at the America First Political Action Conference hosted by white nationalist Nick Fuentes, per the outlet.

“Pat Sajak is a supporter of Marjorie Taylor Greene? I’d like to solve the puzzle… change the channel,” tweeted one critic of the photo, as another posted with a sick-faced emoji, “Oh, Pat Sajak. In one single picture you have captured everything I need to know about you.” Yet another went deep by writing, “Don’t anyone be surprised at this picture of Pat Sajak with Marjorie Taylor Greene. He’s always been a right winger and was friends with the late Rush Limbaugh and I can’t think of anything lower than that unless it’s a pic with MTG.”

Others online had Pat’s back, though, as one follower shared, “Pat Sajak posed with 2 Republicans and haters want to cancel him and Wheel of Fortune for it If you don’t do what Liberals say or follow their beliefs, you’re wrong and shouldn’t exist.”

The photo drama comes after Pat made headlines for teasing his retirement after hosting Wheel of Fortune for over 40 years. Speaking with ET earlier this week, he explained,  “We’re getting near the end. It’s been a long [time]. We’re not going to do this for another 40 years. The end is near.” He added, “It’s an honor to have been in people’s living rooms for that long. People were out there welcoming us. We’re happy and proud.”
