A video clip from President Trump’s State of the Union address Tuesday night shows Sen. Jacky Rosen (D-NV) appearing to give a profane warning to Sen. Krysten Sinema (D-AZ) for giving Trump a standing ovation during his speech as he spoke about the passage of Right to Try legislation last year.
Sinema was already out of step, having worn a pink dress rather than the white protest message attire worn by Rosen (on Sinema’s right with her arm in a sling) Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and dozens of other Democrat women at Trump’s speech to a Joint Session of Congress.
In the clip, Sinema is seen standing and applauding Trump while all her fellow Democrats near her sit stone-faced and not applauding. Rosen slowly stands up right next to Sinema and with a sideways glance appears to mutter, “Watch your ass”, at Sinema, then sternly looks away. Sinema acknowledges Rosen with a defiant nod and stays standing. Sinema and Rosen are both freshmen senators having been elected last November.
The line Sinema gave a standing ovation to Trump was, “And to give critically ill patients access to lifesaving cures, we passed, very importantly, Right to Try.”

Why did Senator Rosen tell Senator Sinema "to watch your a$$." That was really strange. pic.twitter.com/MMRXHZhpij

‘Confirmation’ from observers claiming lip reading experience:
Robert…spot on! Having a daughter involved in the deaf community, lip reading is an acute skill of many. It would be great to have @FoxNews enlist an expert lip reader to give color to the many "off color" comments during #SOTU.
Good for Sinema to applaud America! https://t.co/iazGDLR9Bp
