    "Speak with your chest, bro. You a man. Speak with your chest, so we can hear you."

    In the middle of such an emotionally taxing time, the moment hit many as a much-needed chance to laugh.

    You don't get to be governor anymore if someone tells you to speak with your chest during a press confernce. Thems the rules.

    But many felt that the man said exactly what needed to be said.

    Someone really interrupted the governor of Missouri’s press conference on live national TV and told him to “speak with your chest”. Real.

    "Speak. With. Your. Chest. So we can hear you." Honestly we need more citizens to talk to these politicians like this. Bring them down
