Watch Navy SEAL’s Widow Carryn Owens Receive a Standing Ovation During Trump’s Speech

Last night, Pres. Trump addressed Congress during a televised speech, and though there’s been a lot of debate about the politics of the evening, one moment stood out with its unifying call to honor a national hero.

The widow of Navy SEAL William "Ryan" Owens, who died on a recent anti-terrorism mission in Yemen, was present, and the president addressed her directly.

We are blessed to be joined tonight by Carryn Owens, the widow of U.S. Navy Special Operator, Senior Chief William "Ryan" Owens. Ryan died as he lived: a warrior, and a hero — battling against terrorism and securing our nation … Ryan's legacy is etched into eternity. Thank you.

For the next three minutes, lawmakers stood and applauded Carryn and the legacy of her husband. It was a powerful moment.

I personally do not agree with our politicians using a grieving widow to score political points. Thus is a tradition that US Presidents use to gain favor from Congress and the American people.
