Congressman’s son has the moves, Paul Ryan has no clue

A fun moment from yesterday’s Congressional swearing-in ceremonies on Capitol Hill:

Welcome to 2017 politics.

Newly reelected House Speaker Paul Ryan was thrown off during Tuesday’s swearing-in ceremony when Congressman Roger Marshall’s son dabbed during a photograph session.

“Do you want to put your hand down?” Ryan asked. “Are you going to sneeze?”

The freshman congressman from Kansas seconded Ryan’s inquiry.

But instead of fighting off a cold, Marshall’s teenage son was showing off a dance move made popular by Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton.

Hillary Clinton also learned how to dab with “Scandal” star Tony Goldwyn on “Ellen.”

“Just so you know @SpeakerRyan: He’s grounded,” Marshall tweeted later.

We think the Congressman is being a little draconian.

    Instead of making US congressmen look like duffus’s this kid should be home studying books from his old man’s Ayn Rand collection.

    And all this time I thought “dabbing” was putting hash/honey oil on a joint…
    Man am I behind the times…:)

      Supposedly, that’s the actual source of the term. At least according to Bow Wow. Not sure of his background in linguistics.
