GOP Rep. Tenney Backs Trump: Dems Not Clapping 'Un-American'

(CNN)

Rep. Claudia Tenney, R-N.Y., came out in defense of President Donald Trump on Tuesday, the day after he referred to Democrats who refrained from clapping during his State of the Union as "un-American" and "treasonous."

"I would say it was un-American, and they don't love our country," she said on CNN. "I don't know if I would go as far as treasonous, but the president is before a large audience and he likes to talk in colorful language. I sat on the Democratic side, and I was frankly appalled at the behavior of the Democrats.

"I thought it was terrible that they didn't [stand] for very American ideas, and why not? They're just about resist? What does resist mean? Obstruct. They're not interested in dialogue. Not interested in working with us and trying to come up with solutions."

When host Ana Cabrera pointed out that Republicans, such as Rep. Joe Wilson of South Carolina, protested during former President Barack Obama's State of the Union speeches, Tenney claimed that Cabrera was "mischaracterizing" Republicans.

"I saw many more Republicans en masse standing up in President Obama's State of the Union addresses," she said.
