President Trump unloaded on ‘un-American’ Democrats this week during an event in Ohio, slamming the liberal lawmakers over their “selfish” sit-in during his first annual State of the Union address.
The President was discussing taxes and the US economy when he called-out left-wing legislators who refused to stand or applaud any positive news at his joint address to Congress last week.
“Did anybody happen to see the State of the Union address? I said, ‘You have the lowest black unemployment in the history of our country.’ They were told don’t even make a facial movement,” said the President.
“Dead silence, not a smile… So that means they would rather see Trump do badly than our country do well. That’s what it means, it’s very selfish,” he added.
“Honestly, it was bad energy. You’re up there, and you’ve got half the room going totally crazy and wild, and you’ve got the other side -even on positive news- they were like death. Un-American. Somebody said treasonous… yeah, why not?” Trump quipped.
“They certainly didn’t seem to love our country very much,” he added.

SOTU SIT-IN: Here’s a List of Things DEMOCRATS Won’t APPLAUD
President Trump delivered his first ever State of the Union address Tuesday night, calling on both parties to unite and touting a strong economic message to the American people; predictably prompting only one-side of the packed chamber to rise to their feet.
Liberal legislators led an all-night sit-in against the Commander-in-Chief, refusing to rise after the President cited record-low unemployment for African-Americans, unprecedented job growth, the defeat of ISIS, a booming stock market, and all-out patriotism.
The Washington Free Beacon compiled a hilarious list of “Things Democrats Won’t Applaud” Wednesday morning, showing Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, and other liberal leaders refusing to stand as the President touted America’s success stories.

RECLAIMING HER TIME: Maxine Waters to DELIVER ‘WOKE’ Response to Trump’s Address
Crazed California Congresswoman Maxine Waters is set to deliver a scathing response to President Trump’s first State of the Union address; delivering an “exclusive rebuttal” live on the BET network following the Commander-in-Chief’s primetime speech.
The liberal legislator will deliver her remarks Wednesday evening, just one day after the President speaks before both Houses of Congress; detailing his agenda and legislative proposals on infrastructure, immigration, and the economy.
“The special will feature Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-CA, 43rd District) delivering an exclusive rebuttal to the president’s state of the union address,” writes BET. “Representative Waters is widely recognized as one of the most outspoken political leaders against Donald Trump’s presidency and his administration; she has called for his impeachment on several occasions.”
Waters is no stranger to controversy regarding President Trump.
The left-wing lawmaker has routinely slammed the Trump family as a “criminal enterprise” and has labeled those closest to the President as a “bunch of scumbags.”
