There Was An Unexpected Moment Of Unity At SOTU, But It Wasn’t Because Of Trump
Trump being Trump, he thought the cheering and unity among the women was about him. But it wasn’t. It was about celebrating each other. His words didn’t change the fact that he told a harmful
lie about late-term abortion during the speech. Or the fact that there were parents who were separated from their children at the U.S.-Mexico border and transgender troops whom he had kicked out of the military in the audience. The women wearing white and
Equal Rights Amendment pins didn’t forget. But they were tired of feeling sad and hopeless, so they chose joy in that moment.
