Arizona Democrat Kyrsten Sinema was one of the only Senators in her caucus to applaud Trump celebrating the passage of live-saving ‘Right to Try’ legislation on Tuesday’s State of the Union Address.
It seems that taking the audacity of rising to applaud an element of President Trump’s address rubbed at least one Democratic Senator the wrong way.
As cameras captured the scene of Sinema clapping, Nevada Senator Jacky Rosen was seen speaking to her in a curt and seemingly displeased manner. Rosen seems to have mouthed the words “watch your ass” before looking away in an annoyed manner.
Sinema in turn nodded in a dismissive manner, not deterred from reacting to one element of the President’s address by her colleague’s intimidation tactics.
Having come from a light red or purple state, Sinema may not have the political luxury of full partisan opposition to President Trump’s policy agenda that legislators from reliably blue states can afford. Sinema had also declined to participate in a stunt that involved female Democrats dressing in all white with the hopes of making a political statement against Trump.
Other positive reactions to the President’s address were few and far between among Democratic legislators. The form of intimidation employed by Rosen may have been effective in silencing other Democrats sympathetic to common-sense policies supported by Trump, such as Right to Try. It updates medical regulations to allow very sick or terminally ill patients to try experimental drugs not yet approved by the Food and Drug Administration.
Apparently giving sick people fighting for the lives the right to choose between medical options is unacceptable grandstanding to senior Democrats.
Principled opposition, or staged and opportunistic political theatre?

Chuck Schumer Threatens Supreme Court Justices: “You Will Pay the Price”
Chuck Schumer outright threatened two Supreme Court Justices when speaking at a pro-abortion event on Wednesday, using vengeful and vindictive language when discussing recent pro-life court case rulings reached by the court.
“I want to tell you, Gorsuch, Kavanaugh…. You have unleashed the whirlwind, and you will pay the price! You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.”
Such rhetoric might be expected in one of Kim Jong Un’s regular missive of threats against the United States. But it’s shocking to hear a sitting Senate Majority Leader slam nonpartisan Supreme Court Justices in such a bold fashion, totally disregarding the court’s traditional independence from everyday politics.
The rally by a pro-abortion group was being held in advance of an expected court ruling on a Louisiana abortion law. The law requires abortionists to have admitting privileges at state hospitals.
Republican legislators slammed Schumer for his irresponsible and threatening rhetoric at the abortion rally after footage of his language was seen on Twitter.
Did Senate Democrat leader Schumer just threaten two conservative justices? Where is the media?

Schumer may have been alluding to potential Democratic plans to impeach Kavanaugh, and possibly even Gorsuch, removing them from the Supreme Court. The Court’s now conservative majority has placed a major stumbling block in the way of the Left’s preferred strategy of seizing power through judicial activism.
Schumer’s unprecedented language, especially coming from a senior party official who should remain level-headed, demonstrates the Democratic Party’s willing to cast aside all formal norms of federal politics and government. They’re willing to do whatever it takes in order to get their way.
