Nancy Pelosi led the Democrats into the House Chamber for Donald Trump’s first State of the Union.
The House Minority leader was seen on TV throughout the night reacting to the President’s speech.
But she was caught on camera doing the one thing that just sealed her fate.
Donald Trump knocked his State of the Union speech out of the ballpark.
He ticked off the economic indicators that showed his policies were making America great again.
But not everyone was happy.
When Trump stated that his policies were lowering the unemployment rate for black and Hispanic Americans, Nancy Pelosi sat stone faced in the House Chamber.
The Los Angeles Times reports him saying:
“Since the election, we have created 2.4 million new jobs, including including 200,000 new jobs in manufacturing alone. Tremendous. After years and years of wage stagnation, we are finally seeing rising wages. Unemployment claims have hit a 45-year low. And something I am very proud of, African-American unemployment stands at the lowest rate ever recorded. And Hispanic-American unemployment has also reached the lowest levels in history.”
That could not move Pelosi to applaud.
She could not cheer the good fortune of her fellow Americans.
Her partisanship runs so bitter that good news for other Americans caused her to scowl because it meant Trump was succeeding.

Ted Cruz noted her – and other Democrats – reactions (or lack thereof) when Trump noted that the economic boom was lifting all Americans to better circumstances.
.@tedcruz: "It was stunning to watch Washington Democrats sit there stone-faced and refuse to applaud more jobs, higher wages, jobs coming back to America. Refuse to applaud wins for the working men and women of this country." #Hannity #SOTU pic.twitter.com/7OvKIDIiST

Tens of millions of Americans are seeing higher wages, better jobs, and bigger paychecks.
But Democrats can’t celebrate that news because they hate Donald Trump.
The Democrats rooting against America because they want Donald Trump to fail will be featured in campaign commercials this fall.
And they will pay a price.
