Far-left Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) appeared to refuse to stand in honor of the last surviving Tuskegee Airmen on Tuesday night during President Donald Trump’s State of the Union Address.

During his speech, Trump said, “Sitting beside Iain tonight is his great hero. Charles McGee was born in Cleveland, Ohio, one century ago. Charles is one of the last surviving Tuskegee Airmen — the first black fighter pilots — and he also happens to be Iain’s great-grandfather. ”

“After more than 130 combat missions in World War II, he came back to a country still struggling for Civil Rights and went on to serve America in Korea and Vietnam,” Trump continued. “On December 7th, Charles celebrated his 100th birthday. A few weeks ago, I signed a bill promoting Charles McGee to Brigadier General. And earlier today, I pinned the stars on his shoulders in the Oval Office. General McGee: Our Nation salutes you.”

When everyone in the room rose to their feet to honor McGee, Omar and Tlaib appeared to sit. More

The majority of Democrats were appalling in their behavior. But look who their “Leader” is and how she acted the entire time! Their poor manners and profound ignorance is a disgrace to the office they hold. Anti-Americans should not be in office.

The new “Face” of the Democrat Party were showing their true colors of narrow-minded hate, intolerance, and bigotry. The squad is disgusting and I hope people in their districts fix the mistake they made 2 years ago in the upcoming election.
