One of the more telling portions of President Trump‚Äôs State of the Union speech was when he warned Americans about socialism, and many on the Democrat side of the aisle, including Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, did NOT like it:
President Trump takes a direct shot at socialism: "Tonight, we renew our resolve that America will never be a socialist country." Sen. Bernie Sanders is seen frowning #SOTU https://t.co/EXZ8FU2DXV pic.twitter.com/WNNYm83eGD

"We are alarmed by the new calls to adopt socialism in our country," Pres. Trump says.

And you might be able to guess who else in attendance didn‚Äôt like Trump‚Äôs vow to fight socialism:

As Trump rails on calls for ‚Äúsocialism in our county,‚ÄĚ @aoc flashes a smile. Pelosi claps but doesn‚Äôt stand when Trump says U.S. will ‚Äúnever‚ÄĚ be a socialist country

Trump brings up socialism.
I look immediately at AOC.
(I‚Äôve been watching reactions closely all night)
Trump says ‚ÄúAmerica will never be a socialist country‚ÄĚ
AOC gets a massive grin on her face. It stays there for Trump‚Äôs entire comments on socialism.
She just smiles at Trump

Alexandria Ocasio Cortez giving a really forced smile as Trump goes on about socialism.
Kind of like a "Bless your heart" smile.

Some certainly did NOT like hearing what Trump had to say about socialism:

In fairness, not all Dems sat on their hands in opposition to socialism:
Schumer just stood up against socialism. He's def getting primaried by @AOC.

Ha! Could be.
