What’s in a name?

An 11-year-old boy named Joshua Trump was invited by Melania Trump (no relation) to the State of the Union speech Tuesday night. He was invited because he had to drop out of school in Maryland after he was bullied about his last name. I applaud Melania for inviting him, even if it was (likely) done to score a political point against critics of her husband.

But the ironic part is that during the speech, Joshua Trump fell asleep.

Of course, people on Twitter noticed this when the cameras panned across the audience, and immediately hailed him a hero, tweeting “JOSHUA TRUMP RULES”, “Joshua Trump, welcome to the resistance”, and “All of us were Joshua Trump Midway through President (no relation) Trump’s State of the Union”.

Maybe the youngster just needed some “executive time“, like his namesake. And that just might be a good thing.

    Joshua Trump will be at the SOTU because he was mocked for his name.

    Joining him will be:

    Little Marco
    Lyin Ted
    Crazy Maxine Waters

    Not in Attendance:

    Crooked Hillary
    Little Rocket Man
    Low Energy Jeb
    Failing NYT
    17 Angry Democrats
    Crazy Joe Biden

    Love it! But they forgot “little Adam Schitt”, who I assume was in attendance.

    Do you have a link to this?

    Adam Schiff was there, and camera focused on him, when Trump threatned that he would cause war and chaos, if people keep investigating him

    Poor kid. When I first saw this on FB a few days before the speech, my first thought was now the bullying will really ramp up. Maybe falling asleep will make him a hero instead. I didn’t watch the speech because I knew there would be no shortage of people discussing what was said and done. I would like to see a short video of the highlights of the Pelosi facial expressions.
