New Jersey Rep. Bill Pascrell, a Democrat who represents parts of Bergen and Passaic counties, walked out early from President Trump's State of the Union address.

"I just walked out of the #StateOfTheUnion," Pascrell tweeted. "I can’t stand a liar. This man’s presidency is a national tragedy."

Michigan Rep. Rashida Tliab and Ohio Rep. Tim Ryan — himself a former candidate for president — also claimed to have walked out.
