House and Senate Democrats didn’t seem to know how to react when President Trump touted the historic employment numbers for women during his State of the Union address on Tuesday.

“As we work to defend our people’s safety, we must also work to ensure our economic resurgence continues at a rapid pace. No one has benefited more from our thriving economy than women, who have filled 58 percent of the newly created jobs last year,” Trump said.

Republicans in attendance broke out in applause at this line, but the Democratic women in attendance remained seated, unsure how to react to Trump’s statement.

Eventually, some of the Democrats began pointing toward a group of newly elected women members of Congress and began to start applauding Trump’s comments.

Even, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) could be seen joining in on the fun.

“You weren’t supposed to do that,” Trump joked before thanking them.
