Congressman's Son Adorably Steals the Spotlight During Dad's Speech

A congressman’s son adorably steals the spotlight and the show while his dad gives a speech on the floor of the House of Representatives.

Elected officials have a difficult job. Typically, for every decision made or vote taken, those officials will likely anger some portion of their constituency. But what are politics and government if many people aren’t upset about something? How would 24-hour news channels be able to stay on the air otherwise?

Because the decisions and the votes that elected representatives make impact people’s lives, they must be terrific communicators. They must be able to explain their reasoning and rationale for their decision on this or that issue.

One of the best and most effective ways politicians and government officials express their thoughts and decisions is through televised speeches. Well, that’s exactly what one member of the House of Representatives was doing recently. But no one was likely paying attention to a word he said.

Behind Congressman John Rose of Tennessee sat his son, who stole the spotlight from his father. In a clip posted on YouTube, the little guy spotted the camera, leaned over and started entertaining those who were watching.

The young man made a series of hilarious and unexpected faces at the camera. His hysterical antics clearly show that he had absolutely no interest in what his father was saying. He found a way to have some fun in what was probably an incredibly dull and dreadful experience for the little guy.

Most adults don’t have the attention span or even care to listen to an elected official drone on and on about this or that topic and issue. Can you imagine how a child would feel if they had to do that? Most would do something like the young man in the clip.

Proverbs 22:6 “If a child is trained up in the right way, even when he is old he will not be turned away from it.”
