In a very original moment during the State of the Union speech from President Donald Trump, many members of Congress spontaneously sang "Happy birthday" to one of his guests — and he let out an exclamation in response.
The president was honoring Judah Samet, who survived the Tree of Life massacre in Pittsburgh and the Holocaust. It was also Samet's 81st birthday, which the president noted.
In response, many members began singing in his honor, and Samet responded by yelling, "thank you!" to the president.
"They wouldn't do that for me, Judah!" the president joked.
The president went on to recount how Samet remembers his family being saved from the Nazi concentration camps by American troops.
"More than seven decades ago, he narrowly survived the Nazi concentration camps," said the president. "Judah says he can still remember the exact moment nearly 75 years ago after 10 months in a concentration camp when he and his family were put on a train and told they were going to another camp.
"Suddenly the train screeched to a very strong halt," the president paused dramatically.
"A soldier appeared. Judah's families braced for the absolute worst," he continued. "Then his father cried out with joy, 'It's the Americans! It's the Americans!' "
There was wild applause at Samet's story.
By contrast, former President Barack Obama's State of the Union address was marred when former Rep. Joe Wilson (R-S.C.) exclaimed "you lie!" and interrupted the speech.
