Rep. Brenda Lawrence caught playing Candy Crush during State of the Union
It’s no secret that the Congressional Black Caucus didn’t care much for President Donald Trump’s State of the Union address.
Now, however, a new image shows that three of them were scrolling through iPhones during the Tuesday speech, and at least one congresswoman was playing a game which looks a lot like Candy Crush .
The image was snapped by photographer Chip Somodevilla for Getty Images.
“Members of Congress look at their cell phones during the State of the Union address in the chamber of the U.S. House of Representatives January 30, 2018 in Washington, DC,” the photo caption in Getty reads. “This is the first State of the Union address given by U.S. President Donald Trump and his second joint-session address to Congress.”
The congresswoman playing her phone game was identified as Rep. Brenda Lawrence (D-Michigan) by at least one media outlet — the Daily Mail. , which ID’d the other two women as Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman (D-New Jersey) and Rep. Joyce Beatty (D-Ohio).
CBC members sat mostly stone-faced during the president’s speech on Tuesday offering little applause, even when Trump touted historically low unemployment numbers for black Americans.
A rep for the caucus did not immediately respond to TheWrap’s request for comment.
