There were many notable moments on Tuesday night during President Donald Trump’s State of the Union address.
But perhaps the most awkward and cringeworthy moment came from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who was sitting behind the president during the address.
Pelosi’s antics were on full display throughout the night.
She pretended to read the president’s remarks on those massive pieces of paper, looked at her Democratic colleagues as if only she could approve when they clapped, appeared to be talking to herself several times, and made weird facial expressions.
But her most awkward moment came when she weirdly clapped for the president when he first reached the podium.
Pelosi uncomfortably stared at the president, fully extended her arms toward Trump, and clapped her hands.
She also had a very unusual facial expression while doing her creepy clap.
The video clip above scorched across Twitter on Tuesday night, racking up over 2 million views in just a few hours.
Ironically enough, Pelosi wasn’t the only Democrat to have a cringeworthy moment caught on camera.
During his speech, Trump excoriated the idea of socialism and Sen. Bernie Sanders was not happy about it at all.
Trump blasted the socialist economy of Venezuela and slammed growing calls within the Democratic Party to adopt socialist policies in America.
The president began by noting the ascension of Juan Guaido to the presidency, as the U.S. and several other nations across the world have recognized him, not Nicolas Maduro, as the legitimate president of Venezuela.
“We stand with the Venezuelan people in their noble quest for freedom and we condemn the brutality of the Maduro regime, whose socialist policies have turned that nation from being the wealthiest in South America into a state of abject poverty and despair,” Trump said.
“Here in the United States, we are alarmed by the new calls to adopt socialism in our country. America was founded on liberty and independence and not government coercion, domination, and control. We are born free and we will stay free,” Trump said, to wide applause from Republicans and some Democrats. “Tonight, we renew our resolve that America will never be a socialist country.”
Members of the audience, mostly Republicans, began clapping and chanting “USA!” — but not Sanders.
When the camera focused in on Sanders, he remained in his seat, had his hand over his face, and donned a sour look on his face.
Making matter worse, several Democrats stood and clapped for Trump’s line slamming socialism.

Sanders was not happy about the line because he is a self-described socialist.
He not only supports socialism, he has been actively trying for years to enact socialist policies in America.
Tuesday night was definitely rough for Democrats, many of which refused to stand and clap when Trump detailed America’s many accomplishments under his leadership.
