Kentucky clerk Kim Davis, who became known across the globe after she spent five days in jail for defying federal court orders and refusing to marry LGBT couples, was among a select few Americans who were invited Tuesday night to President Barack Obama's final State of the Union address. But she wasn't too impressed with the invitation-only event.

Davis, who apparently wore a colorful sweater that may have been from a thrift store to the event attended by designer-clad first lady Michelle Obama, said the speech was good, but had little else to say. Asked if she liked the speech, she told a reporter, "It was a speech." She gave no reaction when Obama said Americans should be able to marry who they want during his speech focusing on his achievements during seven years in the White House.

“It was good,” Davis said of the State of the Union to Agence France-Press in a quick interview after the speech.





Davis’ lawyer, Mat Staver, announced Tuesday that he and Davis would attend the speech. However, it was not immediately clear who had invited them. Finally, Congressman Jim Jordan of Ohio, who leads the conservative House Freedom Caucus, said Tuesday night his staff gave Davis a ticket without telling him.

“I think when it became more clear that President Obama was going to tick off his so-called accomplishments in the last seven years, the decision was made to invite Kim Davis to be a visible reminder that his policies have not encompassed all of American citizens and, particularly, Kim Davis with respect to religious freedom and marriage,” Staver told The Associated Press.

Jordan refused to make a big deal out of the invite. "Kim Davis used our ticket," Jordan said. "Our staff heard from the Family Research Council that Ms. Davis and her family hoped to attend the State of the Union address and so we offered a ticket."

Meanwhile, first lady Michelle Obama invited Jim Obergefell, the lead plaintiff in the case that saw the United States Supreme Court legalize gay marriage across the nation last year, prompting Davis' legal troubles. He sat during the speech with the first lady and Jill Biden, the vice president’s wife.

After the Supreme Court’s decision, Davis, the clerk of Rowan County, cited “God’s authority” and refused to issue marriage licenses, quickly making her a darling of the religious right.

Many Twitter users Tuesday night slammed Davis' clothing and political views:
