As if Nancy Pelosi’s constant scowling during the state of the union address wasn’t bad enough, we now learn that other Democrats were playing games on their phones during the speech.
The Daily Mail reports:
Democratic congresswoman caught on camera playing CANDY CRUSH while Trump delivered State of the Union while two others answered emails and read tweets
A Democratic congresswoman was caught on camera playing Candy Crush during Tuesday night’s State of the Union address.
Michigan Rep. Brenda Lawrence tapped her way through the game on her iPhone while Donald Trump was speaking about revamping America’s international trade posture.
New Jersey Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman was reading responses to her tweet about the president’s alleged ‘white nationalism’ while he talked.
And Ohio Rep. Joyce Beatty was inspecting a proposed press release reacting to the speech – while it was barely a third of the way through.
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.
This is embarrassing, not just for Democrats but for the United States of America. Other countries are laughing at us for what little respect some people have for the @POTUS. Shame on the Democrats who put party, & hatred of @realDonaldTrump, over country.https://t.co/i1BL3QbdRe

‘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.
These people would have been outraged if anyone did this to Obama.
