SOTU: Bigger, Better, Faster, MORE!

Hey, time for the live blog of the first (and perhaps last) Trump State of the Uniom address. The theme of this speech is “Safer, Stronger, and Proud”

Let’s review:

Safer – this follows the horrific mass shooting in Las Vegas

Stronger – yep, he really scared the bejeesus out of Kim Jung Un.

Prouder- Ok, let’s not go there. We’re never going to live Trump down.

Annnnnyway, fill your glasses. Let’s drink to:

Safe, strong, weak, proud, terror, Guantanamo, urban, shot, murder, fear, strength, immigrants, gangs, opioids, drug dealers, drug dealers from Mexico – in gangs… you get the picture.

Son of American Carnage

oh and unity, unify, infrastructure, tax cuts, stock markets

Let’s do it. Everybody drink.

  1. Steve Mnuchin- unsexy man or THE most unsexy man?
    I think you call those glasses “birth control”

  2. That cop is trying to chat up Melania.
    I think she looks like she’d take him up on that.


  3. BiFF says we are here to celebrate the worst market day in over a year!

  4. Stephen Miller helped him write that speech.
    Oh god.
    Genius. Super genius. Right up there with The Brain.

  5. Applause appears to be lukewarm.

  6. Democrats appear underwhelmed.

  7. Ryan is high.

  8. He said so himself.

  9. “Mr Speaker etc, let me show you how well I can read’l

  10. Is he talking about the same land?

  11. Melania is giving him the evil eye but she looks absolutely delighted by the cop sitting next to her.

  12. BiFF: Chin up makes me have less of a turkey neck.

  13. Scalise: surgery and rehabilitation provided by the NRA.

  14. I don’t think the chin up thing helps. But maybe that’s because I’m a girl.

  15. Unity!
    Everybody drink!
    I need another beer already.

  16. Nancy with the (not) smiling face.

  17. Climb every mountain!

  18. Strong x 2!
    I’m going to be so toasted.

  19. Yadayadayada bs credit stealing outright deception.

  20. African Americans are not amused.

  21. It looks like they are wearing dashikis from those shithole countries.

  22. That’s great! If you have a 401k. Almost nobody gets a pension.
    Who can afford college.

  23. Tax cuts blah blah blah.

  24. Ooo, blue tie conveys “trust me”.

  25. That means that people who don’t have to pay for healthcare will never get sick.
    It’s a miracle!!

  26. I need to do a light check on my eyelids.

  27. That’s where I went wrong. I should have followed my fathers footsteps and become a welder. They’re in high demand.
    Chemists? A dime a dozen.

  28. Tim Kaine looks like he visited the bar before he came.

  29. BiFF says: if you’re NOT a citizen, then go the fuck home.

  30. (BiFF is a NY resident and somewhat bitter)

  31. BiFF: “I share my heart with someone else because I don’t have one of my own. Well technically, I share them with 7 horcruxes. Or is it horcruxies?”

  32. BiFF: “but not the FBI or dept of justice who are clearly out to get me”

  33. Thank you, Preston, but my father already had a flag at Ft Indiantown Gap cemetery.

    • As a former kid held hostage by jehovah’s Witnesses, I know that no one in America can be compelled to salute the flag by anyone, especially by cynical politicians.

  34. BiFF: he doesn’t mean Pro Choice, just to be clear.

  35. Aw, jeez, he’s going to destroy the VA.

  36. He’s promising to take care of veterans.

  37. I am sorry I called mnuchin unsexy.
    The sexiest thing in Trump’s pants is his wallet.
    Going to Twitter for awhile.

  38. OMG, beautiful clean coal??

  39. None of my siblings or my parents or in-laws came here because of me or my husband. They don’t look at life in this country as something they want.

  40. I was watching the speech and it sure looked like the Democrats were really unhappy when Trump was describing all the great things that are happening.

  41. I missed part of Kennedy’s rebuttal but caught most of it. Kamala Harris was good in the after show interview.

  42. Y’all are brave to have watched that thing.

    I watched Joe Kennedy, only. I thought he needed some speech/media training, but his WORDS were fantastic.

    I agree with the CBS News poll, cheeto was probably trying to unite the country, as he sees it.

  43. The Moron didn’t write the speech, he read it. Let the tweets begin to reassure us that nothing has changed, he is still the destroyer of our world.
