Many Democrats, including the sea of women wearing white, refused to clap for most of President Donald Trump’s State of the Union address Tuesday.
“You weren’t supposed to do that,” Trump said in response to the dozens of House members applauding when he spoke about women filling 58 percent of new jobs last year.
Besides these moments, Democrats drew attention for their solemn reactions to Trump’s speech and their refusal to applaud. And people noticed.
That’s an awful lot of people not applauding. #SOTU
