Democrat Lawmaker Plays Candy Crush Saga During State of the Union

Democratic Congresswoman Brenda Lawrence (D-MI) was caught playing the popular, highly addictive, social media game Candy Crush Saga during President Donald Trump’s first State of the Union address Tuesday evening.

According to the Daily Mail, the picture of Lawrence was taken while Trump was speaking about revamping America’s economy and trade.

It was unclear which level the Democratic representative was on.

At the time the game was written, Candy Crush Saga reportedly featured “3175 levels in 213 episodes (3145 levels in 211 episodes on mobile versions), with 2510 Reality levels within 168 Reality episodes on the web version (2480 Reality levels within 166 Reality episodes on mobile versions) and 665 Dreamworld levels within 45 Dreamworld episodes.”

Apparently, Lawrence was not the only Democrat who took little interest in the commander-in-chief’s address.

President Trump has sought to work across the aisle and bring Republicans and Democrats to the table to pass legislation to advance his mission to see a stronger, more unified America.

According to the Daily Mail, Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman (D-NJ) was reading responses to her tweets, and Rep. Joyce Beatty (D-OH) was looking at a draft of a press release reacting to Trump’s speech.

“I’ve seen it on both sides when Obama gave speeches, Republicans,” Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) told Fox & Friends on Wednesday. He added, “That’s disrespectful, and last night was disrespectful.”
