Photos of Disapproving Faces From Trump's State of the Union Address Emerge

Donald Trump touted all his accomplishments from his first year in the White House during Tuesday night's very partisan State of the Union address.

There was hardly any mention of proposals and wish lists for what he would like to do for the future of the country and its place in the world. And Russia was completely off the table for discussion.

For the first hour, his speech mostly focused on domestic policy, including tax reform, trade, economy, and immigration, enforcing the MAGA campaign he was elected for.

But the failed talking points on other issues left those viewing the address with many sour faces.


Early during the speech, Trump asked for the country and Congress to come together.

Tonight, I call upon all of us to set aside our differences, to seek out common ground, and to summon the unity we need to deliver for the people we were elected to serve.

But after unsuccessfully protecting DACA, which led to the government shut down, Chuck Schumer, didn't seem too eager to join the crusade.

Twitter had some thoughts on Schumer's telling expression in response to Trump's "summon unity" spiel.



"If you work hard, if you believe in yourself, if you believe in America, then you can dream anything, you can be anything, and together, we can achieve anything," Trump said at one point.

However, the look on House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi's face indicates that a bipartisanship effort to bring the country together seems unlikely.


Yeah, she's not buying. Giphy

Comparisons were drawn.


One of these was not like the other. Bernie Sanders appears not to rise to the occasion.

Elizabeth Warren was disenchanted with the SOTU, but she explained how she musters up the strength to continue fighting the good fight. She tweeted:


This photo must've been taken before Warren closed her eyes for inspiration.

Indy100 compiled more images from those attending the State of the Union. The dour faces in the crowed were not all coincidental.


Here's the Representative from South Carolina's 6th congressional district, James Clyburn.



Even Trump-appointee as Associate Justice of the Supreme Court, Neil Gorsuch, issued a stone-cold stare.

The First Lady was not immune from scrutiny.




Sarah Kendzior wrote on NBC News's op-ed, THINK:

Trump's State of the Union was meant to soothe a frustrated population into a false sense of normalcy — but there is nothing normal about a president who threatens private citizens and American institutions while displaying deference to a hostile state.

That sentiment seemed to reflect on the faces of those in attendance Tuesday night, with one exception, of course.


Score! Giphy
