President Trump’s tribute to the wife of slain Navy SEAL William "Ryan" Owens should have been beyond reproach. It was a moment that transcended partisanship and politics. It was a moment that should have brought all Americans together in unity and collective respect for our honored dead. Unfortunately, liberals didn’t get the memo. Following Trump’s State of the Union address, liberals took to social media to shame Owens’ widow.
Feel really bad for that SEAL widow lady. (Esp. since she has to sit by Ivanka's State of the Bra Strap dress.) #JointAddress— Laurelei Gilless (@DinolaurRexnut) March 1, 2017
Social media users, namely conservatives and Americans of conscience, quickly condemned the perverse attacks on the Gold Star widow.
The pathetic fuckstain who insulted the SEAL widow blocked me.— Kurt Schlichter (@KurtSchlichter) March 1, 2017
Congrats, Dan Grillo.
I had thought you couldn't become an even bigger pussy.
Clearly, liberals followed the lead of their morally depraved representatives in Congress. As The Daily Wire’s Ben Shapiro reported, top Democrats chose to remain sitting as Trump honored Owens and his grieving widow.
I can't believe there were Democrats that remained in their seats during the standing ovation for a Navy Seal's widow. Just disgraceful.— Josh Jordan (@NumbersMuncher) March 1, 2017
Sobbing widow of slain Navy Seal receives 2 minute standing ovation.— Benny (@bennyjohnson) March 1, 2017
Debbie Wasserman Schultz & Keith Ellison stay firmly seated, no claps
Keith Ellison, Nancy Pelosi, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, and decrepit socialist Bernie Sanders all chose to let their disdain for Trump supersede their love of country.
