One thought on “Democrats Refused to Stand for Fallen Soldier; Trump’s First Speech to Congress”

  1. Schultz, Ellison and the rest of those that refused to stand are the most despicable anti-Americans you could find. Their behavior is beyond pathetic. If you think that your not standing and not clapping will make a point and stand behind you, the democrats well I got news for you. I have been a registered democrat for 42 years. Yesterday, After seeing just what you think of our military and a grieving widow with three small children, I changed my party affiliation to republican. You are scum. True, true scum and I can only hope and pray that Ryan Owens, looking down from heaven, sends you bad karma for the rest of your lives after how you treated his widow.
