I decided not to go on Twitter or any other social media during the State of the Union Address. Instead, I gave the President’s speech my undivided attention.
The same cannot be said for the Democrats in attendance.
If they looked up from their devices at all, it was to give President Trump some very divisive attention.
Now, I don’t know whose brilliant idea it was to have the Democrats behave like angry nine-year-olds forced to sit through church when they’d rather be outside resisting.
But it was a really, really bad idea.

Well, what do you know? Your face can freeze that way.
But the moment that was truly disgusting was when the President announced that black unemployment is the lowest ever recorded. And the people whose constituents are most impacted by this couldn’t even wipe the contempt off their faces for one second to acknowledge the good news.

You know the old saying, “Resentment is eating rat poison and waiting for the other guy to die?”
Well, this is the Congressional Black Caucus’ twist on that saying: “Resisting is feeding rat poison to your constituents and waiting for Donald Trump to die.”
I’ve been saying for years that the purpose of the Congressional Black Caucus has never been the advancement of black Americans. All those self-satisified jerks care about is their own personal enrichment — even if they have to commit fraud to do it.
Don’t the Democrats have even the slightest inkling that their contemptible behavior last night didn’t read as “anti-Trump?”
Make no mistake: Democrats didn't brand themselves as anti-Trump tonight. They branded themselves as anti-American.

And, if the post-State of the Union numbers are any indication, once again, the Democrat Party proved just how out of touch they are with the American people.

.@CBSNews Poll: Three in four Americans who tuned in to President Trump's State of the Union address approved of the speech he gave. Just a quarter disapproved. #SOTU https://t.co/9RLDGs1LvM pic.twitter.com/YxbuLKZmbF

I mean when 43% of your own party approved of the President’s State of the Union speech, you are in trouble.
And just how stupid are these people to hiss and boo when President Trump starts talking about the violent and deadly gang MS-13?
Earth to Democrats: we all knew in advance whom President Trump invited to sit in the gallery with the First Lady. And we all knew the parents of two young girls murdered by MS-13 would be there.
How the hell do you think they felt hearing you hiss and boo just as the President is about to share their heartbreaking story?
Are you people even made of human parts?
It wasn’t Donald Trump who came off angry and divisive last night – no matter how much pundits on MSNBC may want to believe it.
In fact, as CBS’ poll points out, eight in ten Americans believed the President was trying to unite the country.
8 in 10 Americans who watched Pres. Trump's #SOTU address felt he was trying to unite the country, rather than divide it. Two-thirds said the speech made them feel proud, though just a third said it made them feel safer, CBS News poll finds https://t.co/SRoN9NzmKE pic.twitter.com/bvyG3myhgt

No. The people who came off as angry and divisive were the Democrats.
And they weren’t afraid to show it.

I especially love how tone-deaf this woman’s “This is OUR House!!!” statement is in light of the beautiful thing President Trump said at the close of his address when he referred to the Capitol Building as a living monument to the American People. And then said:
“And this Capitol, this city, this nation belongs to them.”
So who’s looking petty and small, Congresswoman Sewell – Donald Trump? Or you?
Seriously, have you ever seen a more out of touch bunch than the modern Democrat Party?
Trump broke them.
He broke them.
They have become so blinded by their hatred of the President that they have, in turn, let that hatred spill over onto the American people.
And here’s the thing that’s terrifically sad (or wonderfully Schadenfreuderrific depending on who you are).
The Democrats made a grievous strategic error when they decided to become the Anti-Trump Party. And they still don’t realize it.
They really believe that having no agenda except “Resist” is all they need to bring about the “Blue Wave” they’re expecting in November.
But at the end of the day, Americans still want answers, solutions and results.
President Trump is delivering that while the Democrats sit on their asses and frown.
Watching their behavior last night made it clear to me that this supposed “Blue Wave” that they’re counting on in November just sputtered out like a wet fart.
