Democrats refuse to stand as President Trump pays tribute to fallen Navy SEAL’s wife

Red State Watcher

Last night, Carryn Owens, widow of Navy SEAL William “Ryan” Owens, was giving a very long standing ovation after Trump’s speech (video is at the bottom). According to the Daily Wire, several democrats did not stand for the ovation, including Bernie Sanders, Nancy Pelosi, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, and Keith Ellison. From The Daily Wire: On Tuesday evening, President Trump spoke to a joint session of Congress – and gave what was obviously the best speech of his career.

The best moment was obvious, too: his tribute to the widow of Navy SEAL William ‘Ryan’ Owens: 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. I just spoke to General [Jim] Mattis, who reconfirmed that, and I quote, “Ryan was a part of a highly successful raid that generated large amounts of vital intelligence that will lead to many more victories in the future against our enemies.”

Ryan’s legacy is etched into eternity. For as the Bible teaches us, there is no greater act of love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. Ryan laid down his life for his friends, for his country and for our freedom — we will never forget him. As his widow wept and mouthed to heaven, “I love you, baby,” Trump led a round of applause that lasted minutes. And House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) apparently sat there and didn’t cheer as the incredible moment progressed, along with Senator Bernie Sanders and others.

  1. The gross disrespect and heaping ingratitude that Sanders, Pelosi, and Ellis showed transcends despicable.

    Regardless of whether one agrees with Trump, his policies, or his politics, one cannot deny a fallen warrior the gratitude that both that warrior and his family are due.

    The Democratic Party should excoriate these ingrates, and if the Democratic Party does not, then that party has truly become a party that has left the people and embrace intolerance and the extreme far left.

    Their insolence sickens me.

  2. This is just a small indication on who really cares for our citizens and our heroes……NO CLASS,

    That moment was truly a non-partisan event….. he died for their freedom also.

    They are so busy being obstructive, they can’t see the bigger picture. The US First….. It’s not about them……Such a shame

  3. I am an Australian Veteran ,I served for 26 years and deployed twice to the Middle East . I watched this speach from start to finish and I stood and applauded in my own front room in the memory of this warrior . President Trump can come and take over in Australia as well if he wants because we too have a swamp that needs draining ! All I can say is thank god the world has a leader who is not part of the new world order ! Australian military members salute you sir !
