Democratic congresswoman caught playing ‘Candy Crush’ during SOTU

You’re deep into a game, maybe rescuing Princess Peach in “Super Mario Bros.” or stopping your family from drowning in “The Sims.” But then you have to stop gaming and go to work.

Well, one Democratic congresswoman has come up with a solution — just keep gaming. Rep. Brenda Lawrence, D-Mich., was caught doing exactly that on her phone during President Trump’s State of the Union on Tuesday.

A photo, from Getty Images, appears to show Lawrence playing the addictive match-three game “Candy Crush Saga.”

Fox News reached out to King, the developers of “Candy Crush,” to confirm whether it was one of the many Candy Crush spinoffs, or a competitor. They did not respond to that request for comment.

Lawrence’s office also did not respond to a request for comment.

Lawrence was not the only one to be somewhat distracted from Trump’s remarks. The Daily Mail, which first reported on the photo, also noted that Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman, D-N.J., was reading responses to her tweets, while Rep. Joyce Beatty, D-Ohio, viewed a draft press release reacting to the speech.

    How quickly would these same childish Democrats be all over a Republican had they done the same when Obama was President? How quickly would the old stand by cry of “racism” be leveled? And viewing a press release on the speech as it is happening show that the democrats were going with canned responses, written before the fact and based on their biases and their preconceived notion of what was to come, rather than making an informed comment like most adults would. But, what more can you expect from that group?

    And we wonder why our kids are having a problem in school. These people are dictating what our schools should be teaching and Candy Crush must be high on the list of entertainment. It is pathetic to see grown adults, in government positions, acting so disrespectful of our country and it’s traditions. This behavior, in my house, would be a walk to the woodshed for an education that was not easily forgotten. I believe if we do not demand more respectful adult like actions from our leaders we will not be a super power for long. The ability to love one another and show respect has been taken out of our families, schools and government. Bring it back or we will suffer the consequences.
