The State of the Union Address certainly was a newsworthy event, but for all the wrong reasons.
President Donald Trump delivered an astounding speech with a plethora of achievements including historic economic growth, job creation and a resurgence of patriotism for American freedom and greatness.
Roars of applause followed the announcement; however, Trump’s accomplishments cast a shadow over the Democratic Party.
The proud “women in white” remained sedentary when Trump reported that women filled 72% of the seven million new jobs instituted in the United States.
Democrats also refused to rise from their chairs when Trump said the unemployment rate for Hispanic Americans, African-Americans and Asian- Americans has reached the lowest levels in history.
As the night progressed, Trump introduced a variety of respectable individuals: a young African-American college scholarship recipient and a last remaining Tuskegee Airmen. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi was too preoccupied fumbling her papers and repositioning her dentures to pay them any mind.
The night reached its true climax when Pelosi displayed a performance of pure defiance by tearing her copy of Trump’s speech down the middle as he finished his concluding remarks.
Her reaction, along with the remainder of her fellow Democrats, was not only anti-Trump; it was anti-American.
Leftists are making themselves appear ridiculous and have shed light on their ignorance and denial of the current administration’s successes.
In terms of the upcoming 2020 election, this does give Trump the advantage, but only if the American people can see through Democrats’ idiocy.
The Democratic attendees of the State of the Union Address have proven that current political opinion has gone far past Trumpian dissent and is now an attack on the American way.
Trump’s recalling of the valiant determination from Abraham Lincoln to Harriet Tubman is still ever-present in the history of our country, which should make any American, no matter what their political party preference is, stir with gratitude and pride.
Simple respect for the president and for our great American history has gone out the window. I call upon younger generations to take notice of this attitude and defend what truly unites us as Americans.
You can rip up a speech, but you cannot destroy the facts.
