Son of a congressman makes fun of grimaces during Trump's defense speech in the hush money trial

The highly anticipated trial of Donald Trump on hush money charges ended in a guilty verdict. Clippings from the trial and speeches from prominent politicians circulated. A clip from Tennessee Rep. John Rose's recent speech on Capitol Hill defending Trump went viral. However, it wasn't Rose's defense that drew attention; rather, a young bystander sitting next to him stole the show with his playful antics. The youth's playful behavior in front of C-SPAN's cameras made everyone laugh, and his reactions have since gone viral.

Congressman John Rose continued his speech oblivious to what was going on behind the scenes while his six-year-old son enjoyed the spotlight. He often rolled his eyes, pulled faces, stuck out his tongue, looked over his father's shoulder and made hand gestures. Finally, the congressman asked the young man to smile for the camera.

Internet reacts to the viral video

One person commented on the video, praising the channel for its coverage and saying, “Best channel ever.” Another chimed in, “This guy needs NO media training.” Another responded, “LMAO what a show.”

Not only the internet, but Rep. Rose also reacted briefly to the viral video, saying, “That's what I get for telling my son Guy to smile for the camera for his little brother,” referring to his other three-year-old son, Sam. According to the AP, the child spent the week with the congressman and recently graduated from kindergarten. Rep. Rose's youngest son, three-year-old Sam, and his wife, Chelsea, have reportedly returned to Tennessee.
