As Twitchy has reported, President Trump’s State of the Union address Tuesday night provided us with some amazing televised images of Democrats: Sen. Bernie Sanders looking like his dog just died when Trump declared America will never be a socialist nation; the hilarious slow-zoom on Rep. Adam Schiff after Trump slammed “ridiculous partisan investigations”; and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez high-fiving thin air.
Speaking of Ocasio-Cortez, our favorite image of the night might be this looping GIF of the sour-faced freshman representative responding to, well, anything Trump might have been saying.

Democrat Joe Manchin can be seen standing; this might have been the moment Trump was talking about energy independence and how the U.S. is now a net exporter of energy — which of course Ocasio-Cortez would oppose.
You can see why we love this GIF so much.

What's the over and under on how long she practiced "disapproving face" in the mirror?

Watching Joe standing up in front of all of them to applaud is just priceless. Got all their panties all twisted up.

But she saved her meanest look for a heroic ICE agent:
The biggest AOC death stare of the night was when Trump recognized an immigrant ICE agent who leads a task force to break up sex trafficking.
AOC was glaring at the ICE agent in the gallery.

Employment, bad; energy independence, bad; breaking up sex trafficking rings, bad. No wonder she looked so sour.
Feel the BERN! Reaction on Left side of aisle when Trump vowed US will ‘never be a socialist country’ speaks VOLUMES https://t.co/zeLF9JZAOt
