WASHINGTON | Dab! Kids were the stars on Day 1 of the new Congress
WASHINGTON — Jan 03, 2019—They “dabbed” on the House floor. One tiny voice from somewhere deep in Democratic ranks yelled, “Boring!” And when their parents swore to faithfully serve as members of the new 116th Congress, many of them raised their little hands, too.
The children of the new House and Senate were the stars of Thursday’s opening rituals and roll calls, reminders that whatever business awaited the grown-ups — the partial government shutdown, President Donald Trump, divided government — the new Congress is in.
