President Trump delivered his second State of the Union address Tuesday night in the House Chamber at the U.S. Capitol.

As to be expected, the majority of Democrats in attendance refused to stand or applause any of what Trump had to say, even when he asked members of Congress to choose “greatness” instead of “gridlock.”

Even House Speaker Nancy Pelosi couldn’t keep it together for the sake of the many Americans tuned in to watch the speech.

Throughout the speech, she was either smirking, visibly trying not to laugh, holding up papers to show that she was taking notes, or doing all of the above at once. The one time she stood up to clap fiercely for the president was when he said he hopes for “compromise” – and even then, in immature and childish fashion, she leaned in and clapped right next to his ear.

If you were wondering if she was going to keep it professional during the speech, here's your answer:

Let’s not even talk about how she cringed and forced herself to stand when there was a round of applause for the First Lady.

Here are just a handful of the many faces of the Democrats during the president’s SOTU tonight:

Here's 2020 hopeful Kamala Harris shaking her head no at the very mention of a wall to secure the U.S.-southern border. 

And watch Sen. Chuck Schumer's face here while President Trump made the case for dignity of human life.  

The Democratic women in Congress did stand up and cheer, "USA," when Trump mentioned how there are more women in Congress than ever -- even "AOC," freshman Representative and self-proclaimed socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who during the rest of the speech was sitting and giving Trump the death stare. 

"Congratulations. That's great," Trump replied to the cheers with class. 

There's more to come. Stay tuned with MRCTV and watch the president's speech live below.
