When Republican Rep. John Rose, Tenn., took the mic on the House floor on Monday, June 3, he did not expect his speech to go viral. But thanks to his 6-year-old son, it did just that.

As the Tennessee lawmaker was delivering his serious speech criticizing last week’s verdict in former President Donald Trump’s trial, cameras captured his young son starting to make not-so-serious faces behind his dad. 

After the speech was broadcast live on C-SPAN, little Guy Rose’s facial expressions and hand gestures soon turned into countless memes and videos, turning the recent kindergarten graduate into a social media star. 

Rep. Rose said his son is with him for the week. In a social media post of his own, explained the origins of his son’s behavior saying, “This is what I get for telling my son, Guy, to smile at the camera for his little brother.”
