“So, I’m sitting at a stop sign. Can you imagine my surprise, and then outrage, when I look into my rear view mirror and see the Texas Speaker of the House, Joe Straus, about to take a picture of my auto license plate? It was surreal”, exclaimed Apostle Claver T. Kamau-Imani during his radio program on June 30, 2016.
The Speaker was in the Houston area to deliver a “State 0f the State” speech to the Lake Houston Chamber of Commerce the previous day. Claver and RagingElephantsRadio.com team members attended the lunch to video and audio record Mr. Straus’ speech. Straus rarely speaks publically, and to get him on any media can be like hunting for Big Foot.
Yet, perhaps the biggest news event that resulted from the luncheon was after it was over at an all-way stop sign. An unexpected encounter between Claver and the Speaker resulted in a hilarious outcome that had RER listeners howling in laughter, posting approving comments regarding Claver’s actions, and unceasing jabs at Straus for a rather ephebic antic.
Check out the RERhotclip. You must hear the story as told by Claver. Straus and Claver have never had a direct verbal exchange. Yet, Claver certainly communicated non-verbally to the powerful Speaker to prevent him from photographing his license plate. You’ll never guess how. But, it’s safe to say it resulted in Texas nearly losing the sitting Speaker via stroke and/or cardiac arrest.
