This Teen Dabbed As His Dad Was Being Sworn Into The House Of Representatives

He's grounded.

Posted on

During the ceremonial swearing-in of Rep. Roger Marshall on Tuesday, history happened. History that includes a dab.

The move was courtesy of the congressman's teen son, who was dressed in Ken Bone-like garb. He was tasked with holding the Bible and standing between House Speaker Paul Ryan and his father during the photo op.


People don't know how to feel about the ~incident.~ Some said, sweet death, take me.

this video of a teen dabbing next to Paul Ryan and then getting yelled at by Paul Ryan for said dabbing makes me wa…

Many just disparaged youths. "Fucking teens," this person said.

Dad isn't happy about the dab. Rep. Marshall has grounded his son, and told Ryan he had done so publicly.

Just so you know @SpeakerRyan: He's grounded.

And the speaker had no understanding of what just went down.

Just finished swearing-in photos. Nearly 300 members. Countless cute kids. Still don't get what dabbing is, though.
