House Speaker Nancy Pelosi refuses to applaud or stand for anything President Trump remarked about the lowest unemployment for Americans ever in the history of the USA. She also refused to applaud for his remarks about the success of the oil and gas industry in President Trump’s administration.

Economic growth and broadly shared prosperity matter. They matter because they inform whether people can pursue their dreams or whether they suffer unnecessarily. Thus follows a question: Why did Democrats refuse to applaud President Trump’s statement of fact in Tuesday’s State of the Union address that minority unemployment rates are at the lowest levels ever recorded?

As Trump said:

“Unemployment has reached the lowest rate in half a century. African-American, Hispanic-American and Asian-American unemployment have all reached their lowest levels ever recorded. Unemployment for Americans with disabilities has also reached an all-time low.”

That statement speaks to lives being made better in new jobs being found, new skills being learned, and new means of rising up the economic ladder being reached.

Don’t get me wrong, I recognize that Democrats have disagreements with Trump over how to boost employment. But there is no obvious or moral rationale to reject celebration of lives improved. Unless, that is, you care only about partisanship than anything else.

For what it’s worth, Democrats were ready to applaud economic progress later in Trump’s speech. When he said “no one has benefited more from our thriving economy than women, who have filled 58 percent of the new jobs created in the last year,” there was a bipartisan standing ovation.

WATCH:

Conservatives should run on the momentum of this economic moment. We should have no fear in advancing policies that are making lives better, and are measured as such. Yes, we must reform the nearly bankrupt entitlement system.

Yes, we must always endeavor to spend taxpayer money wisely. But today’s economy speaks to something important: The free market is a far better servant of the human interest than Bill de Blasio and his diktats of know-better-socialism.

    I thought it was hilarious that Nancy could just lift her hand to control all the ladies (?)
    in white. They started to applaud one time and she lifted her hand and they all stopped.
    Am so disappointed in my representatives.

      I missed that!! However, she has no poise or class, so nothing more is expected of her. Surprised she even showed up. I did notice she did stand at time and actually applaud…perhaps that was just to wake herself up?

        She stood but then forgot it was time to sit down, she shuffled papers and never read a word. She’s stage two Alzheimer’s.
        How they keep her in that position or any position, just shows how stupid the democrats are.

          The way that she stays in that position is by the illegals who don’t have a clue what they are voting for in California. People like Pelosi go to the border, sign them up as Democrats, and give them voter registration cards so they can vote in the next election. They probably don’t understand half of what she promises to them
          so it really doesn’t matter. They just see her as the one that welcomed them to the U.S.

      WHY not ….she had to tell them HOW and What to wear….all white..all sit together so she could “keep an eye” on them and see if ANY broke rank and filed and clapped when they were not supposed to….Kind of reminded me of the “grand wizard” of the KKK…..those who would break ranks would find themselves without financial support from the DNC next election….They are NOT representing the voters that elected them they are supporting the PIG losi agenda….nothing more.

    Maybe they didn’t applaud because the claim was FALSE. The rates HAD DROPPED to historic lows last year, but they’re up again… no longer at the historic low levels they briefly reached last year. But then, Trump is a habitual liar.

        Here’s an interesting number…I goggled Ohomo’s highest unemployment rate. At one point it was 9.7%. While I am no mathematician, I am able to see the great divide between 3.9% under President Trump and 9.7% under Ohomo.

And speaking of lies, “If you like your plan and your doctor, you can keep it” or how about this classic “I found out about the email server (clinton’s) same time the public found out”.

      People, Patroklos is nothing but a bitter douche-bag, who just can’t stand to admit when they’re wrong about anything, just like all Liberals and Democrats. Look at what Pelosi said a few weeks back when people from the border patrol presented her with actual facts and statistics to prove Trump is right. “I don’t care about your facts.” That tells you all you need to know about her and the entire Democratic party. People like Patroklos live a fairy tale world, where they just can’t accept the truth when it contradicts their narrow-minded beliefs.

    It was a good SOTU address and I thought Pelosi applauded more than I had expected on the more bipartisan items. FYI: I just filed taxes and my family is paying $2,236.00 less do to tax cuts. I wouldn’t say Trump was a lier, you must actually listen to him without prejudice. I’ve known several men with similar personalities. Oh, In January ’19 304,000 new jobs created. The unemployment did rise from 3.9 to 4.0 but there is always fluctuation here is a chart. http://www.ncsl.org/research/labor-and-employment/national-employment-monthly-update.aspx

    NO SOCIALISM, NO LATE TERM MURDERS OF BABIES WHO HAVE NO VOICE, BUILD THE WALL FOR AMERICAS PROTECTION. WOMEN AND MEN SHOULD MAKE THE CHOICE OF BEING RESPONSIBLE IF THEY DON’T WANT A BABY. NOT KILLING OF INNOCENT BABIES WHO HAVE NO VOICE. IT IS MURDER NO OTHER WAY TO LOOK AT IT..

    The Demonrats don’t want low unemployment. They want everyone on the dole and under their thumbs. People working actually means they’re independent and don’t need these slimeballs to survive. I hate them more and more with each passing day. Piglousies petition to impeach her has now reached the maximum and should get a response from the White House. Anyone at this point who doesn’t recognize that the Demonrats HATE this Country and the American People needs their heads examined. They want dependent, preferably illegals, to keep them in power.

    Pres.Trump had a great night last night. When all those Democrat women wore white he used it to his advantage by saying there are more women in the work force. Then he got the best jab in of the night by saying there are more women in Congress then ever before. The uninformed voter must have thought it was a plus for him because they all stood and applauded like crazy people. Looked like it was his doing to have changed the Congress to have more women. He turned their protest I to a WIN FOR HIM. Way to go President Trump.

    It was in some ways funny to watch Ocasio-Cortez look to senior party members to see whether she was supposed to clap. Her handlers had her on a tight leash. It was however sad to see women dressed in white supposedly honoring women’s suffrage who also happen to support islam and the genital mutilation of young girls. The two faced hypocrisy of the Democrat Party seems to know no bounds. As for Pelosi herself it was interesting to watch how she had to stand and clap at different points even though you could tell she was loath to do so despite the great pro-America statements the President was making. Most of what Trump said would have received high praise from the Dems present if they had come out of Obama’s mouth. In fact I dare say the “news” panels afterwords would have all still been giving the speech as standing ovation when the cameras cut to them afterwards if it had been Obama or Bill Clinton who gave that speech. However, we got rampant TDS, lies and twisting of the truth instead. One “reporter” even commented that Trump was lying when he said the State of the Union is strong because the democrats have problems with everything Trump does as if that is Trump’s fault. The fact that Trump was talking about the economy and Trump doesn’t control the partisan anti-America actions of the Democrat Party was ignored in an effort to make Trump look bad. All in all America looked good and the Dems looked stupid and petty.

    I found it hilarious when President Trump said there were more Women in Congress than ever before.Why? My mind went immediately to the madhouse bickering and backstabbing, the voluminous amounts of lemon tasting lip squeezing bitterness exuding from them all. The absolute CONFUSION of What, When, Where and How they are supposed to react as they battled the truth and their conscience and still look dignified in support of a failing Democrat party.The total inconsistency and mayhem the “hire an unqualified female agenda” has brought to the Congressional floor. Midlife hormones direct both houses as they join the other idiots that think the world will tip over.
    Yep, the looks on their faces told the whole story. Even Nutty Nancy had nowhere to turn; albeit she tried her best not to look at the President! hahaha

    Of course they didn’t want to clap. They hate Trump because he’s exposing them as the frauds and liars they are. They don’t want him to succeed, because it ruins they’re entire strategy to stay in power which is this: They don’t want actual solutions to problems. They want to keep the problems alive so they can bullshit voters about how change is needed and only they can provide it. Then they try to put the blame on the other party for why nothing gets done, and pull out their go to play book: Call everyone on the other side a racist and a sexist. That’s all they do, and all so they can try and remain in power and keep the American people in the dark while they fatten up their bank accounts. Trump and his success threatens their whole way of life. That’s why they hate him and want him to fail, but it doesn’t matter, God is on the president’s side.
