President Trump received 2 standing ovations from Democratic women lawmakers during his State of the Union Address on Tuesday night. Americans were stunned to see the Democratic women cheering and applauding President Trump after 2 years of bitter divineness and constant calls for impeachment.
The Democratic women wore all white as a sign of solidarity. They remained seated and tight-lipped when the President entered the House Chamber to sustained applause from male Republicans and Democrats.
The stone-faced women glared at Trump as he began his speech. But the tide turned when the President mentioned the rising employment numbers for women.
"No one has benefitted more from our thriving economy than women, who have filled 58% of the new jobs created in the last year," Trump said, as the Democratic women rose to their feet and cheered.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who sat behind Trump, also stood and applauded.
"You weren't supposed to do that," Trump joked with the women. He urged the Democrats not to sit down yet until they heard what he said next.
The Democrat women applauded enthusiastically and high-fived each other when Trump mentioned there are more women serving in Congress than ever before in history.
The Democratic women displayed a level of admiration and joy for the President that shocked anti-Trump leftwing journalists on CNN and MSNBC.
But women's rights groups took issue with President Trump when he said one in 3 migrant women are sexually assaulted during their treacherous journey from Central America and Mexico to the U.S. southern border.
"A man who brags about grabbing women's genitalia and appoints Cabinet members to strip Title IX protections from survivors does not get to weaponize women's trauma to promote a racist border agenda," a spokeswoman for the TIME'S UP Legal Defense Fund tweeted.
