Most Americans responded favorably to Donald Trump’s speech to the Joint Session of Congress on Tuesday night, with even mainstream media outlets praising him. One moment should have been unifying for everyone in attendance: when Trump honored the widow of fallen Navy SEAL Ryan Owens. But of course, Democrats refused to put their partisan politics aside, even for a minute.
When Trump paid tribute to Owens’ sacrifice and called attention to his wife Carryn’s attendance, the thunderous applause went on for several minutes. Owens sobbed and looked towards the heavens throughout, clearly thinking of her husband. Instead of putting the moment first, Democrats behaved like immature 12 year-olds pouting because the attention wasn’t on them.
Some of the disgraceful behavior came, unsurprisingly, on social media.
Feel really bad for that SEAL widow lady. (Esp. since she has to sit by Ivanka's State of the Bra Strap dress.) #JointAddress

#DanGrilo closed his account after making this despicable tweet. He must have been as embarrassed as the rest of the country was for him. pic.twitter.com/uSipEfCkSC

But the worst behavior was from Democrats in Congress, who refused to stand or applaud during the tribute to Owens.
I can't believe there were Democrats that remained in their seats during the standing ovation for a Navy Seal's widow. Just disgraceful.

Sobbing widow of slain Navy Seal receives 2 minute standing ovation.
Debbie Wasserman Schultz & Keith Ellison stay firmly seated, no claps

How can anyone behave this way and not be ashamed to look at themselves in the mirror afterwards?
