Last night was the much-anticipated State of The Union address. Despite the stupid antics all week leading up to the speech, starting with the Grammy Awards and ending with inviting illegals as guests, it went off without a hitch. Only those who bathe in CNN and MSNBC think Trump is the caricature that has been made and presented to them. I quit being nervous about his live performances long ago, because speaking to the crowd is something Trump does well……and to not know that fact is to misunderstand how he was elected. Let’s be honest…..after last night’s address if you’re still a hater, you are either lying, or a tool for those that are.
There were also the usual doubters making the rounds yesterday, assuring us that this would be the “pivot” moment they have been waiting for. Trump would reach too far in “offering an olive branch to Dems”, and blanket amnesty, full-term abortion, and pimpin’ welfare would become the New Trump, or Old Trump, or something. Instead, the President doubled down on what he campaigned on. The only difference I can spot is that he has learned on the job, and the rhetoric used was more uplifting and positive. I’ll give credit to the Dems for sitting on their ass during applause for low unemployment, a booming economy, and respect for the Armed Forces and Police – all in a demonstration of their ethos……at least they didn’t yell out “Hitler!”, though I almost wish they had in order to illustrate their idiocy even further.
I watched the entire address ( which says something ), and afterwards I was confident that all the talk of “alienating the base” was bullsqueeze. More wishful thinking on the part of the Uniparty Establishment, perhaps? Speaking of the Establishment, I don’t know whether to be afraid of what I saw yesterday or not………and that’s Paul Ryan smiling. I can only hope that this is a result of Trump dragging their candyasses over the finish line in a win for tax reform, and they like the feeling. I can hope. Regardless, we heard about bringing back jobs, securing the border, and restoring some of what we used to possess….like dignity. I spent some of the speech putting myself in the position of a lefty, and I still can’t get pissed. I have always been convinced that all opposition to the America First agenda is based in stoked hate and purposeful misinformation….and last night only served to prove my conclusions. What was there to boo? More money for families? More jobs and prosperity?
Which leads me to the Dem response from #DroolinJoe Kennedy. Not to be mean, but in a world where the press questions how many Diet Cokes the President has and why he had cottonmouth at a press conference……………. how is a waxy, pasty, drooling Conan O’Brien lookalike named Joe Kennedy (the Umpteenth) a good representative? Oh, I remember. Because you’re out of ideas and IQ points, and throwing some name recognition out there is all you’ve got. What’s next, Senator Malia Obama? Wait…..sadly that’s not far-fetched. Droolin’ Joe went on and on, in a room obviously full of party-hack clapping seals, about how everything we just heard was racist, Russian, bigoted, hateful, mean, and “supremacist”….yeah, he said that. WTF? I don’t think Joe has ever heard or read any of his Uncle JFK’s speeches…..otherwise he’d have been applauding the President. Anyway, during and after the address I went over to CNN and MSNBC to get their talking points and it was the same thing. I get it…….but I think they are setting themselves up for disaster of biblical proportions.
Two worlds are about to collide. One is the world that Mainstream Media and the DNC have built out of paper mache and sand, where people are suffering and dying in the streets because of Trump……. where white-hooded, goose-stepping, MAGA hat wearing, toothless rubes impose “fascism” on all of the peaceful trannies and LGBTQQ’s. The other is the world where normal people see an increase in their paycheck, double the tax refund, better and higher paying jobs, increased confidence and optimism, and restored respect and deterrence abroad. In one world there is a fantasy of Obama, Clinton, and their comrades as the new-age messiah and his saintly disciples…..all of whom could perform miracles and do no wrong. In the other, real world, Obama and his pals are going to be exposed as the crooks, liars, abusers-of-power, and yes……..treasonous criminals….that they are. What happens when these worlds collide? I don’t know, but I can’t wait to find out.
