Rep. Tim Ryan, D-Ohio, caused a stir on Tuesday night before the Democratic Debate even began.
Ryan was the only one of the 10 candidates on stage in Detroit not to put his hand over his heart during the national anthem.
The View” co-host Meghan McCain quickly pointed out the incident on Twitter.
“Put your hand over your heart for the star spangled banner Tim Ryan!!!” she wrote.
