On Tuesday night, Melania entered the House Chambers for the State of the Union Address, President Trump recognized his wife. At the mention of Melania, the room erupted in cheers.

However, one woman at least refused to stand and cheer for the FLOTUS. Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez stayed in her seat and didn't applaud.

The Guardian’s Washington bureau chief David Smith noticed Ocasio-Cortez being encouraged by another member to applaud.

“She appears to reply ‘What? Why?'” Smith tweeted.

The Daily Caller’s Benny Johnson also noticed that the congresswoman, who is referred to as AOC, refused to applaud.

In fact, as The Daily Caller notes, AOC spent most of President Trump's State of the Union Address refusing to applaud. She was stony-faced for most of the speech.

She refused to applaud for low minority unemployment numbers, curing AIDS to the effort, and even stopping sex traffickers.

Twitter didn't miss her demeanor throughout the address.

“This woman even refused to applaud the @ICEgov agent who saved more than 300 girls and woman from coyote smugglers,” tweeted former Trump staffer Sebastian Gorka. “@AOC is a Marxist who couldn’t care less about other women.”

Only one moment saw AOC on her feet and celebrating. She applauded the president's recognition of the number of women in Congress. However, when she tried to high-five another congresswoman, she ended up high-giving the air.

How offensive! But do you think Melania even noticed? Let us know in the comments. In other news, you HAVE to see Melania's outfit from the SOTU. She looked amazing and made a strong statement with her outfit.
