The last thing Rep. Brenda Lawrence (D-Mich.) was expecting at Reagan National Airport Sunday night was being approached by a member of the Washington paparazzi.

All she wanted was to get her post-flight Dunkin Donuts fix in peace.

But that’s what you get when you look like you’re playing Candy Crush during President Trump‘s recent riveting, self-aggrandizing State of the Union address. A Getty Images photographer reportedly caught her playing the game on her Smartphone.

DC Celebrity’s Mark Wilkins got the scoop on Lawrence, who initially rebuffed his attempts to get a straight answer out of her.

“Has Candy Crush reached out to you to be their spokesperson?” he inquired.

After repeatedly asking her what level she has reached at Candy Crush, the congresswoman who checked out during Trump’s speech, looked up and threw him a bone. She also chuckled a few times, which shows she may have a hint of a sense of humor.

“It wasn’t Candy Crush,” she said pointedly, giving Wilkins something of a death look.

Scandalous. Was she lying or did Getty get it wrong?
