3. They should not display any decorum; that would annoy their base.

5. At a guess, I'd say

President Trump is putting congressional Republicans on notice that their reactions to his speech will be monitored and closely scrutinized. Back in the bad old days of the Soviet Union, Stalin had people stationed around the room during Politburo meetings to see who wasn't clapping enthusiastically enough or who stopped clapping first during the programmed standing ovations. Members were risking their lives by attending, and they were risking their lives if they didn't attend.

Trump seems to have taken this page from the Stalin playbook.

6. Did he order them to give him a standing ovation?

That would not surprise me one bit.

10. Me too, but my sibs absolutely refuse to do the 10-minute standing ovation.

They ruin everything.

9. Display your enthusiasm...

...Or else! We're watching you!

Love, your tremendously popular landslide winning President.

(P.S. Might as well ignore that last comma while you're at it)

11. Trump's orders were probably something reasonable...

Make sure your boots are polished with a high sheen.
