Republican Upstaged by his 6-year-old son

I’m sure this is all over the internet by now, but it is SOOO precious. Representative John Rose (R-TN), rose up to speak to an virtually empty House to follow in the footsteps of Republicans kissing the ring of Donald Trump. But he brought his 6-year-old son, who — sitting behind his dad — managed to steal the show.

I’m showing you the entire 5 minutes of the speech, even though the funniest parts for the son are right up front. He’s just mimicking what anyone who isn’t MAGA would be feeling about this speech.

In his speech, the representative just repeated the lies being spewed out by Trump and other Republicans. For example, the claim that Alvin Bragg, who was elected to be the Manhattan District Attorney, campaigned on a promise to prosecute Donald Trump, is totally false. In fact, Bragg initially decided NOT to bring charges against Trump, but some of the lawyers who had been working for a while on the Trump case were so upset, they resigned in protest. After spending almost a year following the evidence, Bragg decided to bring charges.

Republicans keep lying, saying that Joe Biden weaponized the Department of Justice to go after Trump. That is laughable. The US DOJ has absolutely nothing to do with the state of New York or its legal system. According to former Trump lawyer Joe Tacopina, “Joe Biden or anyone from his Justice Department has absolutely zero to do with the Manhattan District Attorney office, they have no jurisdiction over him, they have no contact with him, they have no control certainly over him. So to say that Joe Biden brought this case is one of the most ridiculous thing I’ve heard. We know that’s not the case and even Trump’s lawyers know that’s not the case.”

There are plenty of other lies being repeated ad nauseam by Republicans. I guess they are just following the Nazi dictum that “if you tell a lie often enough, people will start to believe it”.

UPDATE: Rep. Rose’s son, whose name is Guy, said his dad’s speech was “so boring“. I agree. Having all the Republicans parroting the same tired lies has to become pretty stale quickly.
