On Tuesday, January 3, 2017, at the first session of the new US Congress, Kansas Republican and Congressman Roger Marshall was sworn in on the Bible for the investiture photograph, surrounded by his four children, when one of his Son made a dab, under the eyes of the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Paul Ryan. Surprised by this strange behavior, the latter asked the teenager if he was okay and the boy replied that yes, while continuing his dab. Finally, the Speaker of the House of Representatives lowered the young man's arm and asked him if he needed to sneeze. A little later on Twitter, the father of the young dabber wrote, with humor, that his son would be "deprived of exit".
