Somewhere along the line, the Democratic Party has not only gone off the rails and begun to believe their own good press, but they now don’t think they need to behave as expected of public figures when the cameras are on them during a live broadcast.
On Tuesday evening, during President Donald Trump’s first State of the Union Address when he outlined one victory for the American people after another, the funereal demeanor of the Democrats on the floor of the chamber was, to be blunt, downright rude. Thanks to President Trump leading the way in calling out people on their poor manners, Americans all over the internet are calling them out on it, too, none more eloquently than Patricia McCarthy of the American Thinker:
It is difficult to imagine a more galling demonstration of incivility than the Democrats in the room for Trump’s SOTU speech. They scowled, frowned, and sat on their hands throughout the speech. They could hardly be bothered to acknowledge the heroes in the audience when they were introduced. While the Dems brought illegal immigrants, Trump invited actual paragons of American character and the families of victims of illegal immigrant crimes, as well as a victim of North Korea. It was embarrassing, like watching the anti-Semites in the UN stomp out of the room when Benjamin Netanyahu speaks. How is it any different? Our Democrats behave exactly like the most racist, intolerant people on the planet, and in their own Capitol….
It was truly shocking for all to see how disrespectful were the Democrats in attendance. Do they think their bad manners will endear them to the American people, most of whom have been taught basic manners and probably agree with nearly every word Trump spoke tonight? Do they think that refusing to stand for the heroes and victims Trump profiled will win over new voters? The parents of two African-American girls killed by MS-13 gang thugs were present and Trump recognized them. The Democrats would not even stand for them! The members of the Black Caucus in attendance did not even stand when Trump touted the “lowest black unemployment ever recorded.” They cannot even celebrate good news for their own people who suffered terribly under Obama. These elected representatives lack the basics of common sense if they think this kind of scorn will win over voters.
And that was BEFORE one congresscritter walked out of the chamber to the chant of USA USA USA.
The truth of the matter is the Democrats demonstrated their true colors to the people of the world. For the most part, they are not on the side of the American people, but illegal aliens. They do not believe in allowing the people to keep more of their own money, but call it a scam. They could not even field a decent member to rebut the president’s address.
It’s over for the Democratic Party. The excuse to wear black may have been said as a protest having to do with the president and alleged sexual harassment (that has now been denied by the supposed victim), but really, were they mourning the death of the ideals that brought down a once great political party? It certainly seemed so. After all, the Dems sat on their hands anytime the true American way was trumpeted from that podium Tuesday night.
