The Hill reports:
A commemorative picture in Congress is no place for “dabbing,” according to House Speaker Paul Ryan. The Wisconsin Republican shut down a young man’s attempts Tuesday to pull off the popular hand gesture.
After being sworn into the new Congress Tuesday, Kansas Rep. Roger Marshall (R) paused to take a photo with his family and Ryan when the newly reelected Speaker stopped short as Marshall’s raised his arm toward his face.
The dab, a dance move popularized by celebrities like Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton and the rap group Migos, includes someone places his or her head near one raised elbow. It appeared that Marshall’s youngest son attempted to dab during the photo, confusing Ryan. Ryan can be heard in the video asking if the young man was all right.
