I watched it on C-SPAN.  It was sad.  I don’t know why the Democrats brought here there.  She had to be literally supported in a standing position, she had to be told to waive.  It was a sad day for her and whomever had the idea to set up this circus.

It was a beautiful moment. She wanted to be there. She is still Arizona’s Congresswoman and she had the right to be there. Congratulations on all of her accomplishments; it is truly a mirale.
