If you saw this moment during President Trump’s congressional address, then you know how touching it was.

Carryn Owens, the widow of 36-year-old Navy SEAL Ryan Owens, who died in January after being struck during a gunfight with al-Qaeda, was honored during the president’s joint session speech. For two minutes, the entire room stood and applauded the sacrifice of the Owens family.

Well, not everyone. There were several Democrats who refused to stand with their colleagues and honor an American warrior, namely Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Rep. Keith Ellison. Ben Shapiro captured that moment for all to see:

Celebrities were also incensed by the moment, claiming Mrs. Owens was just a political prop. So, I would like to etch their disgraceful responses in this slideshow so the Internet can have them forever.

Here are 4 horrible comments from the mouths of undeniably depraved liberals.

1. Debra Messing

Maybe you remember Debra Messing from the  Will & Grace television show, or perhaps when she rallied behind Hillary Clinton during her election campaign. But hopefully this tweet tells you everything you need to know about this actress:

It appears Messing forgot something pertaining to her pal Clinton. Thanks to Diane B for reminding her:



2. Bill Maher

Bill Maher, host of HBO’s Real Time, was part of a celebrity panel on MSNBC’s Hardball the night of the speech. Maher has made a career out of being offensive, so it’s no surprise he said this:

“I don’t see any great courage here … who wouldn’t stand and applaud for a war widow?”

Um, Wasserman Schultz and Ellison, see above.



3. Michael Moore

Liberal documentarian Michael Moore wants people to believe he cares for the country, but his words prove him wrong every time. He complained that Ryan Owens’s death “came as a result of a dinner” President Trump held. His contemptuous rhetoric continued on that same Hardball panel with Maher when he mocked the military widow and the first soldier to be killed under the new administration:

“I’m going to get an Emmy for this, most applause for a dead solder on my watch.”




4. Rob Reiner

Meathead, as he will always be known to me, lived up to his All in the Family character when he launched this repugnant criticism — yes, on the same panel as Maher and Moore. A very balanced panel, don’t you think?

“It was cringe-worthy … talk about using someone as a prop. It was disgraceful.”

I bet he wouldn’t have said that if it was Barack Obama leading the applause.

5. Mary Katharine Ham

She may not be a household name, but she should be. Mary Katharine Ham is a conservative commentator for CNN and knows first hand what it’s like to be a widow. Ham lost her husband Jake Brewer a couple of years ago in a bicycling accident while participating in a charity ride for cancer near Washington. Brewer was a staffer in Obama’s White House.

Ham was appalled when she heard how people were talking about Owens and came to her defense in a series of tweets:

For those lamenting Carryn Owens’ “exploitation,” let me offer some thoughts. I’m not asking you to like Trump or credit him for that moment.

But what you can & should do is credit her. Maybe a SEAL wife who’s been through, God willing, the worst life will give her, can handle Trump.

Maybe a SEAL wife knows exactly what she’s doing & doesn’t need you to explain it to her. Maybe she needs things you don’t know much about.

Maybe a widow raising 3 children knows how important it is to keep his name & memory alive, & that this moment is bigger than Trump or you.

Maybe she knows one day she will show them this video & tell them the President of the United States & all the nation honored him.

Maybe she thinks it might teach her children the strength & courage of their dad (& mom!) to watch her stand up tall even when it hurts.

Maybe all that is more important than your angst about which president is involved & how. Just bc she’s crying doesn’t mean she’s a victim.

Maybe, probably, very likely, she’s a badass. You and your kids are in my prayers, Carryn. Do what you gotta do. Proverbs 31:25

Thank you, Mary Katharine, for speaking up for our military widows and giving them the dignity they deserve.
