Updates to come today!
6:28 pm: We’re a half hour into the SOTU address. Here are the things I noticed, 1) Nancy Pelosi and about a fourth of the Dems have stood up and clapped at something the President said many times tonight. 2) Trump is finally able to tell all Americans about some of his great successes: 1) Tax reform 2) Criminal Justice Reform 3) Low unemployment rates, 4) US is producing more natural gas and oil than any other country in the world.

7:00: Trump talks about the fight against childhood cancer. He introduces a young girl with cancer. Her smiles would make you melt. You’d think this young girl would just be about herself, but she also helped raise money for cancer research. TRump asks for 5 hundred million dollars to help fund cancer research for children. Many on both sides stand and cheer.

7:03: Trump DARES to talk about NY and Virginia and how they were for infanticide. He gives specifics! The Dems don’t know what to do. He calls for a new bill which would protect late term babies from abortion. The right erupts. The left looks flumoxed.
7:05: Trump discusses national security. He talks about how he got other nations to pay their fair share of NATO. The right cheers and stands.

They have clowns.

Note: I’m not sure the Dems knew what hit them. They came in loaded for bear and ready to fight and boo. What happened? Trump. He had a lot of bipartisan things to say and almost dared them to boo and be oppositional. Can’t wait to see old Stacy Abrams make a fool of herself trying to find fault with what the President said.
