Comedian Shawn Farash (also known as Captain Deplorable) gave what he thinks Trump’s reaction to Rep. Jamaal Bowman’s fire alarm stunt on the weekend.
In case you missed it, here’s the background…
Over the weekend, as Congress (read: Republicans) were working to prevent a government shutdown because Democrats don’t seem to understand that there is no unlimited supply of money, lying far-left Congressman Jamaal Bowman pulled a fire alarm.
Republicans called this out for what it was — just one of the stall tactics Democrats used to prevent a GOP win on this situation.

Rep. Bowman’s excuse was he thought that he was opening a door that set off the alarm, but a photo appears to tell a different story.
Democrat Congressman and ‘squad’ member Jamaal Bowman has been ripped by many opponents on the right over his attempted explanation for pulling the fire alarm at the Capitol building Saturday.
The incident, which was caught on camera and has since circulated far and wide, has sent Capitol lawmakers and their staffs into a tizzy as they semi-seriously try to understand why Bowman would think a clearly marked fire alarm would open a door.
Bowman put out a statement claiming that, while in a rush to make it on time to vote for a stopgap spending bill that would keep the government open, he ‘activated the fire alarm, mistakenly thinking it would open the door.’

A whole lot of people simply don’t believe Bowman’s excuse.
Former Congressman Justin Amash called B.S. on the claim.
This is not confusing at all. There’s a push bar on the door below the sign. Members of Congress see these signs all the time and know exactly what they mean. I can’t even imagine thinking it has something to do with a fire alarm pull on the wall. Stop excusing his recklessness. https://t.co/h1lp5tQK4q

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene tweeted that Bowman knew exactly what he was doing and should be held accountable for it.
My office is in the Cannon building. When Jamaal pulled the fire alarm, the entire building had to be evacuated.
Everyone had to go down the stairs to get out and I waited until my entire staff was out before I went to vote.
We couldn’t go back in for over an hour.
