Democratic Socialist Bernie Sanders was caught scowling in the audience when President Trump delivered a defiant message about socialism in his annual State of the Union address from the House Chamber Tuesday night.
After calling for unity, celebrating economic prosperity, and touting record low unemployment, the President then commented on the rising popularity of socialist policies among Democrats.
“We are alarmed by the new calls to adopt socialism in our country,” Trump said. “America was founded on liberty and independence and not government coercion, domination and control. We are born free and we will stay free!”
The camera panned to a scowling Sen. Sanders as Republicans broke into chants of “USA! USA!”
