Last night’s State of the Union was the perfect microcosm of the state of America today. The President of the United States bragged about how good the economy was and how many terrorists were being killed, and the democrats looked angry about it because they apparently don’t like these things. The night got off with a bang when Trump refused to shake hands with Nancy Pelosi, who refused to introduce him in the way a Speaker normally does.
Trump just straight up denied Nancy Pelosi.

Love it. I lot of people don’t like the civil war going on right now. I do. I think we need this to let it all out because pretending like there’s some sort of middle ground here is stupid. She responded by ignoring everything he said.

One thing I did note is that the Republican party has NEVER been this united before. They never got behind George Bush or Mitt Romney the way they do around Trump. They finally have a leader with balls who doesn’t back down to these people, and he pisses off the worst of the worst. Disgraced former congressman Joe Walsh is running against him for the Republican nomination and he basically got booed out of Iowa and had a meltdown on Twitter afterwards. Republicans realize that it’s us against them and Trump is the only one who actually fights back.
As usual he focused on things he knew liberals are supposed to like – lowest African-American unemployment rate ever, 90% of new jobs being filled by women, etc. And every time they did the camera panned towards the congresswomen in white and they were sitting on their phones rage tweeting about how horrible these things were.
We have the more inequality than in the past 50 years.
The uninsurance rate is going up.
Full time workers live in poverty.
Student debt is now over $1.6 trillion.
The economy may be doing well for plutocrats like Donald Trump, but not for most Americans.

It was the worst look ever, and he does it on purpose.
The language he uses is effective too. He said that there were “10 million Americans lifted off of welfare.” Take the word “lifted” out of that sentence and he sounds like a cold-hearted guy taking your food stamps away. By add the word “lifted” and he makes it sound like he’s uplifted these people out of poverty and now they’re all self-sufficient. This is supposed to be a good thing, but of course they showed Rep Eric Swalwell and he was tweeting this:

Yea, thank God this is the last time we have to hear about self-sufficiency and low unemployment rates. That’s the worst.
My favorite senator is Kristen Sinema from Arizona. She’s the only democrat that has a mind of her own and stands and claps when good things were said. Like how Senator Tim Scott (a black Republican) worked on some program that uplifts people out of poverty. She stood and clapped (looking fly as usual) and Kirsten Gillibrand gave her the look of disapproval.

Girl, we don’t applaud good things around here! We’re trying to win a game. We’re trying to convince Americans that everything is crumbling, the sky is falling, climate change is gonna kill us all in 10 years, transgendered people are being killed for no reason, the KKK is lynching black celebrities in Chicago, etc.
He also gave a scholarship to a black girl from Philadelphia, got the democrats to boo a guy with cancer, honored a woman who gave birth to a baby at 21 weeks and vowed more funding to help with that, and reunited a mother and her two children with their soldier father. No one puts on a show like Donald Trump.
Finally it ended with Nancy Pelosi taking all of these nice things and ripping them to shreds:
Because….fuck a healthy economy.
Oh, and this idiot wasn’t there.
After much deliberation, I have decided that I will not use my presence at a state ceremony to normalize Trump’s lawless conduct & subversion of the Constitution.
None of this is normal, and I will not legitimize it.
Consequently, I will not be attending the State of the Union.

We were all REALLY concerned where the freshman congresswoman who can’t stop saying stupid things was gonna watch the speech.
Also, the Red Sox traded Mookie Betts and if you give a dime to this team in 2020 you’re a fucking idiot.
