EDITOR’S CORRECTION: We originally reported that Representatives Wasserman and Ellison did not stand and applaud when President Trump and congress paid respects to fallen Navy Seal, Ryan Owens on Tuesday evening. Having reviewed a second video, we have revised this story.
It was during the second, longer, and more emotional standing ovation when the two can be seen seated and not clapping. Rep. Nancy Pelosi and Sen. Bernie Sanders also participated in the first standing ovation, but did not participate throughout the entire second ovation. We cannot confirm how long any of them remained seated, but clearing they bowed out early on. The first ovation was short. The second ovation last approximately two minutes.
(see screen shots)
In the original story we reported was according to Daily Wire, a blog written by conservative journalist, Ben Shapiro, who claimed top Democratic officials refused to stand for Navy SEAL widow Carryn Owens during President Donald Trump’s first address to Congress. Although accurate, his report failed to be specific as to when they did and did not stand.
