Aside from the President's family, viewers of tonight's political event may have also seen several democrats wearing a Time's Up pin. In fact, dozens of democratic legislators showed their solidarity against sexual harassment and assault by wearing black outfits.

"The importance of #TimesUp & #MeToo is about more than demanding decency & respect – though that is certainly a major part of it," House minority leader Nancy Pelosi shared on Twitter. "We must recognize & cherish the brave ppl who stand up to demand their stories be heard. I'm proud to know so many of my colleagues feel the same way."

California Congressman Ted Lieu added, "Sexual harassment knows no party or industry. Wearing black to tonight's #SOTU to show solidarity with workers across the country demanding safety & equality. #TimesUp #SOTUBLACKOUT."

Several politicians also sported purple ribbons at the State of the Union to raise awareness about the opioid epidemic.

"On my way to #SOTU. I'm wearing a purple ribbon tonight in honor of those suffering at the hands of the #OpioidCrisis," New Mexico Senator Tom Udall shared on Twitter. "Addiction touches all of us and it's time for real action to address this public health crisis."

"We have to do something about it," President Trump shared in his speech. "We must get much tougher on drug dealers and pushers if we are going to stop this."
