Texas Republican sneaks into Democratic state convention and brandishes handgun when confronted

Published

Texas Republican Briscoe Cain was thrown out of the state’s Democratic party convention after he snuck in with a gun and tried to “prank” attendees by handing out lawn signs, the Star-Telegram reports.

State Rep. Briscoe Cain, R-Deer Park, and a handful of other Republican activists were thrown out after handing out fake yard signs reading, “This home is a gun-free safe space.”

Attendee Mirian Spencer shot video of Cain lifting his shirt to show what appeared to be a holstered weapon after an attendee asks him “When’d you go gun-free?”

Cain seemed to believe that the signs would put people in danger.

“Nobody should put this in front of their house,” he told the Star-Telegram. “It”s amazing how many people took one and thanked us. They said they would put it in front of their house. I think it’s funny.”

Cain was previously in the news when he mocked Stephen Hawking immediately after his death.

Last week, President Donald Trump met with Democrats at the White House to discuss the way both sides could work to fix the President's mistakes in Syria. Democrats left the White House saying that the President had another meltdown during the meeting, which prompted Trump to claim Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) was the one who had a meltdown. He then posted photos of Pelosi sitting quietly and another photo of Pelosi standing and pointing at him.

Body language expert Dr. Jack Brown posted the photo and gave his own analysis of what he believed was happening in the photo.

"When a person has little or no empathy — and/or when they're far from their emotional baseline, their ability to interpret how others will view an event becomes dramatically distorted," Brown explained Sunday. "Rarely has this behavioral axiom been better exemplified than last Wednesday at the White House."
