Democratic Old Guard Still have no Class at Trump Speech to Congress


Disgraceful: Top Dems Ellison and Wasserman Schultz Couldn't Put Politics Aside, Remained Seated When Navy SEAL's Widow Was Honored

By Matt Vespa,

Congressional Democrats, still sour over Hillary Clinton’s loss to President Donald J. Trump, remained mostly seated and still throughout the president’s first address to Congress. Guy offered his analysis on this, and the consensus is that this was his best speech yet. More importantly, it showed that Trump had become presidential. The tone was softer, though it did not shy away from the promises he made on the campaign trail.
Yet, as Trump discussed support for law and order, law enforcement, and other subjects that usually garner bipartisan gold claps, Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) and Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) were seen debating with whether to stand or remain seated during some of Trump’s biggest applause lines. Independent Journal Review’s Benny Johnson tweeted that the two were whispering, “Should we stand?”

The most powerful moment came when President Trump introduced the widow of Navy SEAL Ryan Owens, who was killed in action in Yemen. Carryn Owens, breaking down in tears, received the longest ovation of the night—and rightfully so. But Schultz and Ellison remained seated, like cold stones.
Sobbing widow of slain Navy Seal receives 2 minute standing ovation.

Debbie Wasserman Schultz & Keith Ellison stay firmly seated, no claps
