I never watched Obama spew his platitudes and outright lies, mostly because his voice was offensive to me. I may watch part of the speech tonight, but chances are I’ll just recap tomorrow.
Basically it’s a chance for him to tout his successful leadership in growing the economy, stemming the flood of illegal, and promoting America to the world instead of apologizing for her greatness.
The Democrats plan to have at least six — count ’em, six — rebuttals after his speech. The official response will be by some Kennedy (yes,one of THOSE). The most interesting will be by Gasoline Maxine, whose rebuttal will be repeating “Impeach 45! Impeach 45!” over and over until she has a seizure and passes out.
It will focus on five broad topics: the economy, a $1-trillion-plus plan to rebuild infrastructure, Mr. Trump’s new immigration proposal that includes a pathway to citizenship 1.8 million young illegal immigrants, trade policy and a plan to rebuild the military.
“To Congress, the tone will be one of bipartisanship and very forward-looking,” a senior administration official said. “The economic upswing is helping everybody — all groups are benefiting.”
Unhinged: Michael Moore assails Trump, ‘unfit,’ ‘narcissist, ‘sociopath,’ ‘threat to humanity’
One of the chief organizers of Monday’s counter-State of the Union in New York City is charging that President Trump needs to be overthrown before he ends the world. Really.
Moore, with Mark Ruffalo, Whoopi Goldberg, Rosie Perez and Cynthia Nixon are headlining the Hollywood-filled New York event and MoveOn.org is fundraising off it. Trump gives his address to Congress on Tuesday.
[CtH: Maybe these folks could actually LISTEN to the speech? Just a suggestion.]
Maxine Waters set to respond to Trump after State of the Union
Waters, one of Trump’s most vocal critics, will appear on “Angela Rye’s State of the Union” on BET, according to BuzzFeed News. Waters, who is one of several Democratic lawmakers who have said they will not attend Trump’s speech on Tuesday, has consistently criticized Trump throughout his presidency, repeatedly calling for his impeachment.
Monday’s event also will serve as a platform for the launch of “We Stand United,” the lead organizing group of the “People’s State of the Union.”
The group’s campaign director, Julia Walsh, said, “We’re all going to work together across all different movements to make sure that we win back Congress in 2018 and hold this president in check.”
“It’s the mother of all movements,” Ruffalo said.
[CtH: No, Mark. The “mother of all movements” in this country was the American Revolution, followed closely by the Republican Party’s founding to end slavery in the U.S. The “mother of all movements” in all of world history was the rise of Christianity.]
Joseph Kennedy III to give Democratic response to Trump’s State of the Union address
WILL THEY EVER RUN OUT OF KENNEDYS?
[CtH: Not the way Bobby and Ethel reproduced, no.]
“From healthcare to economic justice to civil rights, the Democratic agenda stands in powerful contrast to President Trump’s broken promises to American families,” Kennedy, 37, grandson of the late Senator Robert F. Kennedy and three-term congressman, told the paper.
Virginia Democrat Elizabeth Guzman of the Virginia House of Delegates will give the Spanish-language response, the paper reported.
[CtH: Name ONE promise Candidate Trump made that President Trump has broken. Just one. I’m waiting.]
Joe Kennedy to bring transgender soldier to Trump’s State of the Union
SURE, WHY NOT?
Staff Sgt. Patricia King will be the lawmaker’s guest to Trump’s address, according to The Boston Globe. King told the Globe that she realized she was a transgender woman while serving in the military, and soon came out to her family.
Trump announced last year that he was banning transgender people from serving in the U.S. military. However, courts have halted the ban and transgender people were allowed to enlist starting Jan. 1.
Supreme Court Justice Ginsburg to Skip Trump’s State of the Union, Says She is Not Retiring
Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg will not be in attendance at President Trump’s State of the Union address Tuesday evening. Ginsburg also skipped out on Trump’s address to Congress last year after attending each of former President Barack Obama’s eight addresses before Congress.
[CtH: She slept through Obama’s.]
Democrats And Leftists Will Be Giving At Least Six Separate Responses To Trump’s State Of The Union Address
No habla inglés? No problemo. Virginia Del. Elizabeth Guzman will give the Democrats’ official Spanish-language response, although it’s not clear how her message will differ from Kennedy’s.
But that’s not all. Vermont’s Independent Sen. Bernie. Sanders will be speaking off-the-cuff after the state of the union during a live streamed event on social media. Remember, Sanders isn’t an official member of the Democratic Party, so he’ll be going rogue as he did in 2017.
Former Maryland congresswoman and candidate in the Prince George’s County executive race, Donna F. Edwards will speak on behalf of the Working Families Party after Sanders.
MSNBC Guest Has Crazy Idea For State Of The Union Response, And It Involves The Black Panther Party
The way Donald Trump has taken advantage of this reality TV atmosphere, I think they should have gotten all of their all stars. This is a different day and age. We don’t have to play by the old playbook rule,” Cross said. “Get Kamala Harris. Get Cory Booker. Get Kirsten Gillibrand. And produce this like you’re producing the trailer for the Black Panther party. Get them all together. Rallying cry.”
Frederica Wilson: Trump Doesn’t Deserve to be “Honored with my Presence” at SOTU
SO SAYETH ANNIE BLACKLEY
Wilson said that instead, she will be viewing the SOTU with: “My local Muslims and Dreamers and local Mexicans, and local Haitians, and victims of sexual abuse, and local Gold Star families, and local Africans who are Nigerians and South Africans.”
[CtH: “honored with my presence” BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA ::gasp:: BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA]
VIDEO: Students hate Trump’s SOTU… before it even happens
Donald Trump’s State of the Union address is coming up this Tuesday, but some students must have gotten a sneak peek, because they already hated it.
THIS IS WHAT THE MEDIA AND THE SOCIALIST INDOCTRINATION CENTERS KNOWN AS COLLEGES HAVE PRODUCED
Critics of Trump have already begun to express displeasure with his actions in the days leading up to the speech, leading some to wonder whether this opposition is substantive, or rooted in a distaste of Trump as a person.
Wanting to find out, Campus Reform headed to New York University to ask students their opinions of President Trump’s State of the Union. The only problem for them was that the speech would not take place for another seven days.
Would that stop them from giving strong, condemnatory opinions on the speech?
State of the Union 2018 — Where to Watch, Follow, Join the Conversation
The president will likely urge both parties to solve the immigration problem in the United States, commit to serious border security, and announce plans for dramatic infrastructure spending.
The speech will be about “building a safe, strong, and proud America,” according to administration officials, thanking the heroic Americans who worked hard to restore our country after devastating hurricanes hit the country and the Americans who are working to keep the country safe
