During Wednesday’s “Morning Joe” on MSNBC, Nancy Pelosi claimed she was “proud of the dignity” her Democrat members showed during President Trump’s joint session of Congress.
In the interview, Pelosi opened with this statement.
“I was very proud of the dignity with which our members listened to a speech.”
She also criticized Trump for not presenting enough proposals.
“He hasn’t had a proposal on jobs, on infrastructure, not even renegotiating NAFTA which he promised.”
The video is on her Twitter account.

If Pelosi wants to talk about dignity, she should explain all the times Democrats sat down when everyone else was standing up and clapping.
Plus, one of the most disgusting displays was when Rep. Keith Ellison and Debbie Wasserman Schultz were caught sitting down when Trump recognized the widow of Navy Seal Ryan Owens.
Herman Cain was one of many others who condemned both of them.

It was a beautiful, epic commemoration for Ryan and his widow that resulted in the longest standing ovation of the night. Despite the two hacks sitting down while everyone else was cheering, Pelosi is still proud of the “dignity” the Democrats showed.
Not only that, but many other moments occurred when most Democrats sat down while others stood up.
Democrats won't even applaud American steel. Remember that, Pennsylvania. #JointAddress

Elizabeth Warren was not going to applaud for that new jobs line. Nope. #TrumpAddress

America just watched Trump calling on parties to unite. Reps stood and cheered. Dems sat on their thumbs. The Party of No. #JointAddress

Pelosi has a lot of explaining to do when most of the Democrats did not show unity for many parts of the speech.
I’m not sure what she was watching last night if she thought they showed a lot of “dignity.”
