I cannot believe this occurred, but top democrats refused to stand up for the wife of slain soldier Ryan Owens:
We are blessed to be joined tonight by Carryn Owens, the widow of a U.S. Navy special operator, Senior Chief William “Ryan” Owens. Ryan died as he lived: a warrior, and a hero — battling against terrorism and securing our nation. I just spoke to General [Jim] Mattis, who reconfirmed that, and I quote, “Ryan was a part of a highly successful raid that generated large amounts of vital intelligence that will lead to many more victories in the future against our enemies.” Ryan’s legacy is etched into eternity. For as the Bible teaches us, there is no greater act of love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. Ryan laid down his life for his friends, for his country and for our freedom — we will never forget him.
As his widow wept and mouthed to heaven, “I love you, baby,” Trump led a round of applause that lasted minutes.
And House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) apparently sat there and didn’t cheer as the incredible moment progressed, along with Senator Bernie Sanders and others – see this video at approximately three minutes in, as the cameras pan the crowd. Maybe it was more important for Democrats not to cheer in Trump’s presence than to cheer a hero.
Bernie Sanders was also angry about Trump daring to bring victims of Democrat Open Border Policies to the State of the Union.
Too bad Sanders:
Sanders rips Trump for “stirring up fear and hatred” by inviting families of people killed by immigrants to speech https://t.co/yl232vQU53
The Democrat party has become the Party of Hate:
@TuckerCarlson: Dems will need to be obstructionist simply because hatred of Pres. Trump is the only thing that holds the party together https://t.co/CJxwRfPM9m
WATCH: Dems heckle Trump’s “drain the swamp” line https://t.co/G4ZnQAx5Su
The moment Trump thanked the wife of the soldier:
Such a powerful moment. God bless this precious family. May we live lives worthy of this fallen hero’s sacrifice. https://t.co/rMTwVq8boq
Charles Krauthammer loved the speech:
@krauthammer: “This is without a doubt the best speech [@POTUS] ever gave.” #TrumpAddress https://t.co/czU2PmlipB
Bitter Democrats still whining about Russia because that is all they got now:
Trump makes no direct mention of Russia in speech to Congress https://t.co/uVyqRpyP1b
This is What ANTI-AMERICANISM LOOKS LIKE
@bennyjohnson This is what NOT WINNING looks like ?
Omg lol ? #addresstocongress
UPDATE: Pelosi’s reaction to Trump calling Obamacare a disaster:
