Watch: President Trump Honors Tuskegee Airman And Great-Grandson During SOTU…These Radical Dems Stay Seated

(Liberty Bell) – Tuesday’s State of the Union address to the joint session of Congress by President Donald Trump was full of epic moments.

You’ve got to hand it to him, Trump loves our country and knows what matter to everyday Americans.

He also knows exactly how to show us how much the left hates everything he stands for.

He can get a room full of elected representatives to the US Congress to sit on their hands during applause for low-income children getting scholarships, great American heroes, men recently diagnosed with advanced cancer, and children who have survived extremely premature birth.

So when one of the last surviving Tuskegee Airmen and his great-grandson were honored during the State of the Union address, it was no wonder some of the party’s most radical members refused to pay tribute to this great American hero and emblem of the fight for civil rights.

“In the gallery tonight we have a young gentleman, and what he wants so badly, 13-years-old, Iain Lanphier. He’s an eighth-grader from Arizona. Iain, please stand up,” the president said as members of Congress and their guests cheered.

In 2019, Lanphier graduated at the top of his class in the Aerospace Career Education program, which, according to the White House website, is supported by the Tuskegee Airmen, Inc.

The president continued:

Iain has always dreamed of going to space. He was the first of his class and among the youngest at an aviation academy. He aspires to go to the Air Force Academy, and then he has his eye on the Space Force. As Iain says, “Most people look up at space; I want to look down on the world.”

But sitting behind Iain tonight is his greatest hero of them all, Charles McGee, who was born in Cleveland, Ohio, one century ago. Charles is one of the last surviving Tuskegee Airmen, the first black fighter pilots, and he also happens to be Iain’s great grandfather.

Incredible story. After more than one hundred and thirty combat missions in World War II, he came back home to a country still struggling for civil rights and went on to serve America in Korea and Vietnam. On December 7, Charles celebrated his 100th birthday.

“A few weeks ago I signed a bill promoting Charles McGee to Brigadier General, and earlier today I pinned the stars on his shoulders in the Oval Office. Gen. McGee, our nation salutes you. Thank you, sir,” Trump concluded.

Breitbart noted that the legendary airman had celebrated his centennial by flying as a copilot out of Frederick Municipal Airport in Frederick, Maryland.

“It’s an opportunity to share in where technology has taken us in the aviation realm and just to be a part of it,” he said at the time.

“To get in air again, it’s a real thrill,” McGee concluded.

  1. I just do not understand howsome of these democrats were elected. Who in their right mind would keep voting these people into office? What has this party turned into?All those women dressed in white? Do you think they even have any feeling for this American Hero? I do not. They should go back to where they came from and never show their faces in public again..What a sad night for America and a terrible example set for the young teenager. God Bless him and his heroic grandfather. …And GOD BLESS AMERICA…

  2. In recognition of his selfless and mindless devotion to upholding his version of the United States Constitution, and his single-minded perseverance and application of the high moral and cultural standards of that great State of Californica, it is with immense and chest-swelling pride that the owners, patrons, and punters of Dingleberry’s Restaurant of South Central San Francisco dedicate their latest culinary extravaganza to Representative Adam Schiff(D-CA):
    “The Schifless Shiffburger”
    Ingredients:
    2 large Babbage lettuce leaves
    1 healthy left-of-center slice of beefsteak tomato
    Stone-ground yellow mustard
    Crushed red pepper flakes.
    Directions:
    Place one lettuce leaf, curly side up, on a suitable paper serving plate.
    Distastefully arrange the tomato slice on the curly leaf.
    Liberally apply a thick layer of yellow mustard to the tomato slice.
    Spoon on a heavy helping of flakes.
    Top with the remaining lettuce leaf, curly side down.
    Press all together and wrap in a recycled paper towel.
    Enjoy!

    [You might ask, “Where’s the Beef?” And as we all know, there never was any.]

  3. TO ALL THE HATERS WHO WERE UPSET OVER RUSH GETTING AN AWARD AND NOT THE TUSKEEGEE AIRMAN HE DID RECEIVE A GREAT HONOR OF BEING GIVEN THE UPGRADE OF BRIGADIER GENERAL WHICH HE RECEIVED A FEW WEEKS PRIOR TO THE SOTU SPEECH.

  4. Well, perhaps the Democratic Party has been totally corrupted . . . So much so, that it will perish like the Whig party or be renamed the Socialist-Democrat party.

  5. If it weren’t for men like Gen McGee and other Brave Americans of all races we would be speaking German or Japanese.
    I hope the Gen has many more years to inspire the young pilots and future pilots of today. GOD BLESS YOU SIR.

  6. If people bothered to GOOGLE, two DEMOCRAT politicians from Maryland (Senator Van Hollen and Representative Brown) introduced the legislation authorizing McGee’s promotion. So the person that thought this was political pandering is MISTAKEN

  7. I’m not sure I’ll ever reach that age, but if I do, I hope I can still stand tall and proud like Charles McGee. Hard to believe he’s 100! Kudos sir, hope you celebrate many more.

  8. You got to understand something about politicians and crooks, they are great at slight of hand and when you are not watching they are kissing babies and all the while stealing their lollipops. You have to ask the question how do you spell foreign policy? INVESTIGATION.
    President Clinton promoted Benjamin O. Davis Jr. to Full General and if I am not mistaken Republicans clamored against that, so using Tuskegee Airman for political gain is nothing new, however what is new is the callous manner in which politicians are handing out these awards …. Medal of Freedom for Tiger Woods for playing golf? Russ Limbaugh for being a bias bigot with a platform? who is next Jack Nicklaus or Tavis Smiley? Wisdom and Judgement … you be the judge.

    • It’s amazing the depth of things you do not know, Theron. Rush Limbaugh is a real patriot, unlike some of the pretenders in the Democrat party, though Rush has never held office. What he does have, is a good spirit about him, and focuses on the plight of Americans who are tired of hearing the garbage spilling forth by the ‘lame main-stream media” the pundits, and the sneers and jeers of people like you. Doing so, he has made it possible for people who do not like the socialist/communist braggarts and liars version of what America should be. Fortunately, those of us educated beginning in the 30’s and 40’s remember life as a time when each person can attain the level of their competence with their own effort. It was still pretty much like that in th e 50’s but in the 60’s, I began to realize that the lazy, unbelievers in the Constitution of the United States were turning into little guru-babies with their free love, existentialism, babble and bull-hockey. Fortunately, I had the opportunity to learn (not just in school) but from great books, classics, etc. that there is much more to being an American than “gimmie, gimmie, gimmie” such as work, study, helping and being kind to others, having a firm belief in God and following righteous people…not the self-righteous of the pandering left. I’ll never forget voting in my first election, and because of that, I won’t make that mistake again. I’ve learned from mistakes as well as from great people, but it would be nice if everyone could do that instead of piling on against President Trump who is showing more faith in this country and its people than most former presidents. I still can’t believe that there is anyone who can honestly believe in that cretin, Bernie Sanders and his communist baloney, who has changed his story over the years. What you don’t know about him will come back to haunt you. Nothing is free…because the government would have to tax everyone much more in order to give “free stuff” to those who profess that they can’t live without a handout. When I was a young military wife in the 60’s, I recall being far from home with just a junk heap of a car and a baby on the way and my husband was required to go to sea. I could have sat down and cried my eyes out, but that’s not the way my parents brought me up. We got Navy housing with a very minimum of furniture and nothing for a baby, but I was determined to get through it. There was no communication from his Submarine at any time during his many deployments, and being pregnant, I couldn’t get a job. So I MADE a job and began sewing for other wives who couldn’t sew in return for things we needed at first, and then as a way to earn extra money. I continued to learn to do a lot of things nobody in my family could believe I’d ever accomplish…like putting chains on the car when it was snowing, changing the oil in the car, and becoming a help to other Navy wives who were having a hard time coping. I learned from the seasoned wives who’d “been there and done that” and never thought about what I couldn’t do. It seems to me that if more young people of today could do even just that, we’d all be better off and there’d be no need for bread crumbs from Bernie.

  9. He has been a great President for this Country! His fault is he is human just like the rest of us. I had no intent of electing a SAINT,but a fighter that did not give a rats ass about political correctness. The very thing many of the democrats could learn from,but will not. They will continue to be triggered about Americans wanting control of our own border. Americans do not want drug dealers ,murders,gang members coming in and out at will. Then to have millions of non citizens on public assistance and expect the rest of us to pay for it. This is the crap that has ruined European Union. Throw open the doors any body can come and our citizens will pay for it. Time for the U.S. to take a different path. One that looks out for Americans first. The thing the democratic party has been doing for years me first,illegals second and nothing else matters.

  10. So many inspiring stories during SOTU. If only everyone in the gallery could have put partisan politics aside to unite our nation for one shining moment and celebrate the most glorious country on earth….. liberals can’t do that. Their hatred for our president and for anyone who disagrees with their depraved ideals overshadows anything honorable. It’s critical for parents to warn their children not to follow these dark and evil charlatans.

  11. YES HE MADE MANY POINTS WITH ME HONORING THAT WW2 AIRMAN, HE LOOKS LIKE HE COULD GO INTO COMBAT RIGHT NOW , GREAT LOOKING GUY.

  12. Hope you clowns who voted for these dems are proud of your vote. You made your beds putting these “American haters” into office, now lie in them. Funny how my lib neighbors now claim they did not vote for these losers. Despite the truth about these people, guessing they will still vote to reelect these socialists. Country has gone down the tube. I feel for my grandkids. What future do they have in a America if our schools keep processing these socialists. God help America
