Missouri Republican Congressman Billy Long became an Internet sensation of the 2020 State-of-the-Union address for enthusiastically cheering President Donald Trump and giving thumbs up while a wad of cash appeared to spill out of his suit’s breast pocket.
Long was seen on camera, with stacks of what looked like US currency sticking up from his pocket, reacting with a fist-pumping thumbs up as Trump described his agenda as “relentlessly pro-American.” Such an ostentatious display of capitalism did not go unnoticed.
There’s a guy at the State of the Union who literally has cash sticking out of his pocket. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a picture that sums up D.C. better. #SOTU #SOTU2020 #SOTUboycott pic.twitter.com/aaSAHx7cIS
