It was interesting to watch the Democrats continue to self-destruct during President Trump’s State of the Union speech. Throughout 121 minutes, 115 applause lines and scores of standing ovations, they sat on their hands and made faces as they used their anti-Trump feelings to justify their anti-social behavior. Their failure to acknowledge him was not only disrespectful and juvenile but also a continuation of all their concerted and malicious attempts to discredit him and undermine his presidency.
Their disrespect became more and more obvious as Trump named off some of his many achievements: the defeat of ISIS, the booming economy, 2.4 million new jobs and the bonuses and new businesses because of his tax bill, which liberals said would never create more money or jobs for America.
They refused to applaud God, country or the flag, border security, fighting opioid abuse or the lowest black unemployment rate in history.
America’s growing, people are thriving and the Democrats are angry. They didn’t just brand themselves as anti-Trump that night. They branded themselves as anti-American.
