If President Donald Trump’s State of the Union address proved anything, it’s the sorry state of the Democratic Party.
In front of the entire nation, the party sat stone-faced while Trump listed accomplishment after accomplishment for the American people.
When one person from the Democratic Party did stand and applaud, cameras caught an exchange that could have been mistaken for a deleted scene from “The Sopranos.”

The lone clapper is Democratic Arizona Sen. Kyrsten Sinema — a newcomer to Washington, D.C.
A newbie to national politics may not understand why one side of the aisle refuses to clap, even for major accomplishments. Luckily for Sinema, fellow Democratic Sen. Jacky Rosen was there to seemingly point out the faux pas.
Belonging to a party that’s as hostile to the president as the Democrats are, “watch your a–” is a very plausible warning for someone stepping out of line.
Some viewers adept at reading lips were even more certain of the warning.
It’s hard to see Rosen saying anything else, and not many have proposed alternate theories.
While we may never know exactly what was said, this clip is just a small part of the Democrats’ less-than-stellar performance at the State of the Union.
