I have always found the USAs State of the Union very tiresome. The amount of standing ovations, in every one I have seen, is extreme (like after every sentence).
But this time around, many of the Democrats didn’t stand. They sat down, many of them in stony silence.
Here is a photo:

This isn’t the most dramatic thing I have ever seen, not even during a State of the Union. During one of Barack Obamas State of the Unions, a Republican Senator shouted out “You lie”.
You would have thought that the Democrats could have done something more to challenge Trump. Why are they acting so spineless? Do they even care? Or was refusing to stand enough?
