Reps. Omar and Tlaib did not stand after President Donald Trump recognized Tuskegee Airman Charles McGee during the president’s State of the Union address.
Most of the lawmakers in attendance for Trump’s speech last night gave Charles McGee a standing ovation when the president acknowledged him, but the pair of freshmen Democrats notably remained sitting.

Looks like nearly everyone else stood, except for those two, who didn’t want to honor a US hero. (At very end) pic.twitter.com/XfOp9B0nSN

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.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
