Donald Trump ad disses ‘disgraceful’ Democrats for SOTU ‘disrespect’

Donald Trump maligned what he called “disgraceful” Democrats in a new campaign ad Tuesday.

The specific Democratic disgrace: not applauding POTUS during the State of the Union.

The campaign ad, per a campaign media release, “displays the predictable and consistent, yet utterly disgraceful, behavior of Democrat Members of Congress as they reacted to President Trump’s first State of the Union Address to the nation.”

The spot, which builds on an assertion that non-clapping Dems were “treasonous” this week, depicts what the media release calls “the unprecedented expressions of disrespect” from Democrats, with shots of the scowling visages of Rep. Nancy Pelosi and Sens. Chuck Schumer and Bernie Sanders.

“President Trump’s State of the Union address was so profound that even the mainstream media called it ‘strong’ and ‘inspirational,’” said Michal S. Glassner, Executive Director of Donald J. Trump for President, Inc.

“Yet, our ad demonstrates that the unprecedented expressions of disrespect shown by the Democrats towards our people and our country were also profound – for the wrong reasons. The breathtaking indifference in reaction to President Trump’s calls for unity and to the President’s bold stories of freedom-loving heroes speaks for itself. The Democrats just sat there, and they were disgraceful,” he concluded.

Not all Democrats refused to applaud President Trump’s address.

Notably, North Florida Democratic Rep. Al Lawson applauded Trump.

Trump lauded Lawson.

“Who was that guy? He was a nice guy. I think he was a reverend. And he was clapping,” Trump said this week. “And I wouldn’t say it was exactly a rousing — but he was putting his hands together.  And I want to find out who he is.  I’m going to send him a letter of thank you.  And he was probably severely reprimanded.”
