Who says bipartisanship doesn’t exist? 

Texas Reps. Dan Crenshaw and Sheila Jackson Lee proved us wrong at Kanye West’s highly talked about Sunday Service at Lakewood Church in Houston, per Crenshaw’s Instagram.

Crenshaw, a Republican, and Jackson Lee, a Democrat, appear next to each other in the front row — or close enough to feel any sweat (or holy water) that could fling from Kanye and his gospel choir.

Crenshaw shared videos on Instagram from his evening. Kanye’s wife Kim Kardashian West and daughter North briefly appear in one video, moving swiftly past the congressman to the side of the stage.

Ahead of the artist’s Sunday performance, he and his choir sang for inmates at two Houston jails, prompting praise from Crenshaw and Texas governor Greg Abbott.

The stop at Joel Osteen’s megachurch, which started in a “feedstock store” in Jackson Lee’s 18th congressional district, is part of West’s ‘Jesus is King’ tour. The congresswoman invited Osteen to serve as guest Chaplain in 2012.

The 42-year-old rapper known for past profanity-laced songs and outspoken views recently released an album of gospel music called “Jesus is King” and vowed to no longer release secular music. 

Neither Crenshaw nor Jackson Lee’s office immediately responded to HOH’s request for comment.
