You can get an thought of how ridiculous the Democrats acted throughout (and after) President Donald Trump’s State of the Union Speech on Tuesday by the proven fact that at the same time as liberal a columnist as Dana Milbank of the Washington Post has discovered them to be embarrassing. Milbank is hardly an admirer of the President since final September he wrote a column claiming that Donald Trump is killing him adopted later that month with the criticism that Trump is “Driving Us Crazy.” However even Milbank has complained about the angle of the opposition get together in Democrats’ conduct at the State of the Union was embarrassing:
It offers me no pleasure to say this, however the Democrats’ conduct at the State of the Union was embarrassing.
Noticing the all too apparent, eh?
I take a again seat to no one in decrying President Trump’s cynical and divisive efficiency. He repeatedly exploited Americans’ divisions on race, weapons, God, immigration — something to distract from the damaged guarantees, vulgarity and worse that outline his presidency.
But the Democrats, with their infantile protests, took the bait. Symbolic dissent is ok, however this was a cacophony ofcauses: black clothes (for #MeToo), kente ties and sashes (as a result of of Trump’s Africa insult), butterfly stickers (for the “dreamers”), crimson buttons (for a sufferer of racial crime) and the extra bipartisan purple ribbons (for the opioid epidemic).
Worse, dozens of Democrats refused to face when the president entered the House chamber, forgetting that one stands out of respect for the workplace, not the officeholder. Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.) grabbed a center-aisle seat solely to show his again on the president when he walked previous. Democrats groaned, scoffed, heckled and made lemon-biting faces. Others merely boycotted. In quick, they did the similar kind of issues they (and I) denounced Republican lawmakers for once they did them to President Barack Obama.
Nancy Pelosi seemed like she was biting on a lemon as she gave the impression to be rolling it round inside her continuously shifting mouth.
That there have been no fewer than 5 Democratic speeches in response to the State of the Union solely compounded the confusion.
Wouldn’t Joe Kennedy III’s response really depend as a Chapstick industrial?
