Political Twitter rips Democrats ‘sitting on their hands’ during Trump’s SOTU
President Donald J. Trump delivered his first State of the Union address Tuesday with his most Reaganesque rhetoric to date, but also in his own showman’s touch.
As much as the Americans watching the president enjoyed the president’s speech, Political Twitter noticed that the Democrats in the room where it happened were not having a good time.
It got so hot that the hashtag #PelosiFrowns was trending.
