Radical Democrat Ted Lieu of California violated House rules Friday by playing a recording of crying children who were separated from their parents at the border, ignoring a presiding officer who implored him to stop.

Mr. Lieu, a Democrat who frequently rails against President Trump online, refused from the lectern at the front of the chamber, which was empty except for dozens of tourists who looked down from the gallery. “I think the American people need to hear this,” Mr. Lieu said, brushing off Rep. Karen Handel, Georgia Republican who happened to be presiding at the time.
After four minutes of the audio blasting throughout the House, Handel told Lieu that the sergeant-at-arms would enforce the rules, meaning they’d physically remove him if necessary. Lieu then stopped the recording and yielded back the rest of his time.
