.@RepUnderwood gets a post-speech moment with Biden.

“We’re still working on getting the Momnibus to your desk. We’re not going to give up, sir,” she tells the president.

In response Biden kisses her hand.

“Momnibus” = package of legislation intended to boost maternity care.

Inconsiderate people + Brain injury = Awkward situation. Noisy, messy, self centred.

@ChrisNowinski1 @danawhite @TBSNetwork This is beyond a doubt shameful. Not only for the organization that produce it, but for the viewers who consume it. Why watch someone totally defenseless, being subjected to concussion forces without any protection. Probably the same people that enjoy picking on kids in school.

If you or someone you are about is struggling with concussion symptoms, possible CTE, or other potential consequences head impacts, reach out to the @ConcussionLF HelpLine here: https://concussionfoundation.org/helpline

This is so sad. Note the fencing posture with the first brain injury. He may never be the same. @danawhite & @TBSNetwork should be ashamed. Pure exploitation. What's next, "Who can survive a stabbing"?
