Democrats Mope During The State of the Union Address

The State of the Union address was beautiful. I loved the joyous bouts of clapping and cheering as Trump promised that America will be put first and the many successes he listed, the somber moments of deep reverent silence as he went through the stories of certain guests in the house, the fervent roar of USA from the crowd as Donald Trump concluded his great speech.

"Together, we are building a safe, strong, and proud America."

But, there were a few people that stuck out like a broken thumb, a few people who refused to stand or clap during Trump's grand speech. Negative Nancy Pelosi was sitting among them. On twitter Bill O' Reilly remarked that "Nancy Pelosi looks like shes sitting on a nail.", and she didn't look too happy either. Even when Trump was highlighting the many successes, Democrats sat for things like job growth, economic growth, tax cuts, defeating ISIS, veteran benefits, low African American unemployment rate, etc. Hell he even wanted unity from both Democrats and Republicans by saying "I am asking both parties to come together to give us the safe, fast, reliable, and modern infrastructure our economy needs and our people deserve." The whole tone of the address was a sense of togetherness and love for our fellow American patriot despite differences. But still, nothing on the Democrat side even at a call of unity between both parties. Crickets. She and many others sat bolt upright, sitting there with sour faces on. This is coming from the Democratic side, no clapping or cheering towards AMERICA BEING SUCCESSFUL. This just shows how anti-American and disrespectful they are. Look, I understand they don't like him, but if they didn't like him they could've just clapped for the accomplishments, not for the man they hate who caused these successes.  But no, they still sat there, moped and everything. The only time they did clap and stand (halfheartedly mind you) was for the guest like Ji Seong-Ho, Fred & Cindy Warmbier, Ashlee Leppert, and many of the other great patriots and strong people that Trump addressed. But it seemed so fake. This doesn't make the Democrats look good, it makes them look foolish and anti-American, and God help us all in the midterm elections if more of these anti-American Democrats are voted in.

"Tonight, I want to talk about what kind of future we are going to have, and what kind of nation we're going to be. All of us, together, as one team, one people, and one American family."
