Trump calls Democrats who didn’t clap during State of the Union ‘treasonous’ and ‘un-American’
President Trump said on Monday that Democrats who didn’t applaud during his State of the Union address — including Rep. Nancy Pelosi — were “treasonous” and “un-American.”
Mm-Hmm… Ya think??? I totally agree. And they should be ashamed of themselves. Oh I know but…but…but look how Obama was treated while in office. Oh please! I bet my bottom dollar Republicans never acted like that during a SOTU address. And if you got the video bring it on. If I’m wrong I’ll eat my words, but I think I’m right.
“They would rather see Trump do badly, OK, than Trump do well,” the president said during an event promoting tax reform in Blue Ash, Ohio, on Monday afternoon. “It’s very selfish. And it got to a point where I really didn’t want to look too much during the speech over to that side. Because honestly it was bad energy.”
Republicans in the House chamber applauded often during Trump’s Jan. 30 State of the Union address, his first as president, while Democrats, led by Pelosi, resisted many of Trump’s applause lines.
“You’re up there, you’ve got half the room going totally crazy, wild, they loved everything, they want to do something great for our country,” Trump recalled, “and you’ve got the other side — even on positive news, really positive news — they were like death. And un-American. Un-American.”
Trump then pointed to the back of the room of the Cincinnati factory where he was speaking.
“Somebody said treasonous. Yeah, I guess, why not?” the president said to laughter from the crowd. “Can we call that treason? Why not.”
