The president knows he can say anything and his merry band of idiot voters will not even bother to look into whether or not that’s true, and even if they did, he’s somehow convinced them not to believe the news. Despite the stupidity of his followers, Democrats were not going to let Trump make things up during tonight’s State Of The Union address.
This is what got the Democrats, most of whom were wearing white in protest, so angry:
You can see the Democrats in the crowd immediately stand up when Trump starts telling his lies:
These brave patriots will not be ignored, although the president surely tried doing so, but as the cameras panned to them and off of the president, The Donald likely grew very heated.
This is the response online:
Brief moment where Democrats (looked like mostly the women wearing protest-white) were trying to shout over Trump. Could not make out what they were chanting. #sotu

I planned on Boycotting the SOTU but if I hear there’s going to be protests by Democrats I’ll watch just to see the empty seats

The Democrats should plan some kind of audible/visual protest to the SoTU. Like every time he lies, one of them stands up, yells "Fact check!" and proceeds to contradict his lie. I mean, the speech will last an eternity, but the general public really oughta know when he's lying.

After this farce of a TRIAL, I pray that not one, REPEAT not one Democrat either applauds or stands up tomorrow evening at the SOTU address as a protest that the WHOLE world can see, not just every American who cares about our democracy.

Not a single Democrat including Pelosi should be at the SOTU. They should be organisaing protests, make sure not a single thing by Republicans gets passed (and not agree to something like USMCA) and call them fascists at every point like they do in reverse. FIGHT BACK.

Before this speech is over the Democrats are going to stage a protest. The anger and frustration is palpable. #SOTU
