Democrats Refuse to Stand for Navy SEAL’s Widow When She Received a Standing Ovation at Trump Speech

Democrats in Congress refused to stand while a Navy SEAL’s widow was acknowledged by President Trump in his speech before a joint session of Congress Tuesday night.

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Al Franken (D-MN), Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), and Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA), among others, remained firmly seated and did not applaud at all while the rest of the room gave Carryn Owens a standing ovation, IJR reported.

“We are blessed to be joined tonight by Carryn Owens, the widow of a U.S. Navy special operator, Senior Chief William ‘Ryan’ Owens. Ryan died as he lived: a warrior, and a hero — battling against terrorism and securing our nation,” Trump said, introducing the widow.

Ryan was killed in the line of duty during a raid on a terrorist haven in Yemen. His widow Carryn was seated next to First Daughter Ivanka Trump, clearly distraught as she took the national spotlight.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), Sen. Al Franken (D-MN), and other Democratic members of Congress did stand and applaud on the second round of ovations, but many others still refused to stand.

    I wonder if all these people that said they would leave the United States if Trump got elected have left? If they did we would sure be of our way of improving the quality of this country! Just like the football players that don’t stand for the national anthem! This is one big reason why the NFL is going down the tubes. Now these low lives that won’t stand to honor an American Seal. These fools are bad, real bad!!!

  • Jose says:

    Those that did not stand only reflect how self-serving and unpatriotic they are. Regardless of political affiliation, respect by both party members should be given to one of our “fallen” citizens who gave their life so the rest of us can enjoy “freedom” although freedom is not “free”.

    On the inter net, A Real Donald,J Trump, Potus Trump, Fox News and Face Book the Alt left are posting hate mail for this lady and Trump. Any rational response gets insane hate mail in return. How is it that the democrats are bring in illegal immigrants. Does that mean there is no vetting for criminals? That being supporting criminals while insulting a hero’s wife. What right do the criminals have in congress? Are the democrats once again showing us that they are above the law and will continue their crime wave?

    No clapping for any parts of the President’s speech – apparently they are not supportive of healthcare that works for ALL Americans – even if you live in Arizona; they don’t obviously want Americans to be safe from radical islamist terror; have jobs; … Seriously, their constituents should throw their fat a–es out on election day. Disdain and contempt is all they have for the American people AND our chosen leader.

    1. Retired says:

      They proved the love for the US and not supporting the woman who just lost her husband in a dangerous mission . She was a very brave woman to be there so shortly after loosing her Husband .Shame was brought to the US by the Demon Rats.
