Dems Caught Playing Candy Crush During State Of The Union


Michigan Rep. Brenda Lawrence (D-MI) was busted playing Candy Crush during Tuesday night’s State of the Union address while President Trump was talking about revamping America’s international trade by pushing for deals that are fair and reciprocal for Americans.

Lawrence was pictured next to two other members of the Congressional Black Caucus who were also playing with their phones during the speech – Reps. Bonnie Watson Coleman (D-NJ) and Joyce Beatty (D-OH). 

Watson was pictured checking a response to a tweet she made, while Beatty was inspecting a proposed press release reacting to President Trump’s speech.

Beatty’s spokesman told DailyMail.com on Thursday that she had read the entire speech already, and wasn’t doing anything out of the ordinary. 

‘That State of the Union is put out an hour in advance so Democrats and Republicans can read along,’ the spokesman said.

‘And while the speech was going on, she was putting together a statement in response.’

The other two congresswomen’s offices, however, didn’t offer any explanation. -Daily Mail

David Martosko of the Daily Mail helpfully adds that “It’s unclear from the picture what level of Candy Crush she was on. Members of Congress are paid $174,000 per year.”

Aside from the three Democrat reps engaged with their phones, the Congressional Black Caucus declined to stand when Trump touted the lowest black unemployment rate ever recorded:

Another shameful moment ensued as Congressional Black Caucus members refuse to applaud President Trump touting lowest black unemployment rate ever recorded.  



  1. According to this report all these Democrats received a printed copy of the SOTU speach in advance, however, this does not warrant their horrid disrespect displayed for our ELECTED President. I hope and pray that all Democrats across the nation are watching this display of childish behavior by their representatives and remember this when they vote the next time. This is precisely why I am a Republican. Which of the two choices show the qualities we need for our country? Go back in the records and find out what your choices voted for, who spends the money when voted in, who is caught in the most scandals? You will find that a majority of these things are committed by Democrats. Look who is playing CANDY CRUSH during a speech given by our PRESIDENT. Would you do this at any speech in which you were expected to attend, would you not applaud because you did not get your way? Didn’t we outgrow that kind of behavior at about ten years old? Ask yourself these questions BEFORE YOU VOTE.

  2. It’s a darn shame that this people are making $174.000, even though if some of this people already read the speech, they could at least act interested and professionals in front of the people that paid their salaries. Sooo sad and childish of all of them.
