Out of all the post-State of the Union hot takes given in the aftermath of President Trump's barn burner address to the nation Tuesday night, perhaps the most unintentionally revealing one came from Democrat CNN political commentator Van Jones.
President Donald Trump is delivering the 2020 State of the Union speech tonight, despite some speculation that it might be postponed since the Senate is voting on his acquittal on Wednesday. Will the Democrats show respect during his address?
On Friday night Donald Trump tweeted a really funny satirical video created by Twitter user @CarpeDonktum.
The video (see below) used the REM song "Everybody Hurts" mixed with Trump's State of the Union speech audio to mock Democrats and Mitt Romney, with video clips of them in the audience at SOTU. The Trump tweet quickly gained almost 50,000 retweets and over 2,000,000 views.
Jemele Hill is no stranger to controversy, which is usually self-inflicted. During President Donald Trump's state of the union address, she made a joke about assassination and is now trying to backtrack.
The President, members of their party, and their detractors are usually the people who take center stage at annual State of the Union addresses.
But perhaps the best moment of President Trump's address to the nation was when he introduced Judah Samet to those in attendance and those watching at home.
Democrats will trot out failed Georgia Gubernatorial Candidate Stacey Abrams to deliver their official State of the Union rebuttal.
Tuesday, Senator Schumer confirmed Abrams had agreed to give the official anti-Trump response.
This morning, President Donald Trump sent Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi a letter to inform her that he will deliver the State of the Union (SOTU) on January 29.
Pelosi said that the SOTU will not happen in the House chambers as long as the government is closed.
President Donald Trump has informed Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) in a letter that he will honor her previous invitation to deliver the State of the Union in Congress on January 29.
He told Pelosi, "It would be so very sad for our Country if the State of the Union were not delivered on time, on schedule, and very importantly, on location!"
Pelosi shot back that she won't allow Trump to deliver the address in the House.
In a nakedly political move, Nancy Pelosi has declared that Trump's state of the union address next week shouldn't take place in the House of Representatives. She cited safety concerns due to the government shutdown, but that's utter nonsense.
