This appears to show far-left Democrat Reps. Rashida Tlaib (MI) and Ilhan Omar (MN) *refusing* to stand for the last surviving Tuskegee Airmen Brig. Gen. Charles McGee
Looks like nearly everyone else stood, except for those two, who didn't want to honor a US hero. (At very end) pic.twitter.com/XfOp9B0nSN

Trump was all postive, Democrats were all negative. They also refused to stand for the killing of Soleimani, with the wife and son of one of men he killed there.

Far-left Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) appeared to refuse to stand in honor of the last surviving Tuskegee Airmen on Tuesday night during President Donald Trump’s State of the Union Address.
During his speech, Trump said, “Sitting beside Iain tonight is his great hero. Charles McGee was born in Cleveland, Ohio, one century ago. Charles is one of the last surviving Tuskegee Airmen — the first black fighter pilots — and he also happens to be Iain’s great-grandfather. ”
“After more than 130 combat missions in World War II, he came back to a country still struggling for Civil Rights and went on to serve America in Korea and Vietnam,” Trump continued. “On December 7th, Charles celebrated his 100th birthday. A few weeks ago, I signed a bill promoting Charles McGee to Brigadier General. And earlier today, I pinned the stars on his shoulders in the Oval Office. General McGee: Our Nation salutes you.”
When everyone in the room rose to their feet to honor McGee, Omar and Tlaib appeared to sit.
