'You Saw How Divided It Was': Rep. Duffy on Democrats' 'Disheartening' Reactions to SOTU
Rep. Sean Duffy (R-Wis.) and Rachel Campos-Duffy were impressed by President Trump's unifying State of the Union address, but they were disheartened by Democrats' lack of support.
"Republicans were standing up applauding, and Democrats sat down for so much of the speech, which indicates, obviously, that they're not supportive of what the president's saying, whether you're talking abortion, immigration or border security," Duffy said on "Fox & Friends" Wednesday.
He said he found the disconnect "shocking," and he wondered how a Congress that's so divided can come together and find bipartisan solutions for the American people.
"Those were disheartening moments where you want your Congress to come together, but you saw how divided it was," Duffy said.
Campos-Duffy said it was particularly troubling that not one Democrat stood up or applauded when Trump called on Congress to ban late-term abortion.
"He was not saying anything even about abortion. He said late-term abortion and infanticide, and they couldn't stand up for it. It was shocking," she said.
She noted that Democratic lawmakers also failed to stand when the president spoke about ICE rescuing women from sexual slavery, or when he mentioned record low unemployment numbers for minorities.
"How can you bring the country together when you can't agree on some basic human issues like that?" Campos-Duffy said.
Duffy added that the Democrats' reactions to Trump's speech shows how far-left and "extreme" their party has gone.
