A quick list of my highlights from last night’s State of the Union speech:
- Female Democrats wore black in solidarity with the #MeToo movement as they listened to a commander-in-chief who has been accused of sexual misconduct by 19 women.
- And to add irony to insult, there was “The New American Moment” moment: “This is our new American moment,” Trump said. “There has never been a better time to start living the American dream.” The irony? Hillary Clinton used the phrase “new American moment” in a speech as secretary of state in 2010.
- Lastly, there was a You-Know-You’re-A-Mainstream-Liberal moment, brought to you by Democrat Senator Tim Kaine…….Trump offered this empty-headed platitude: “If you work hard, if you believe in yourself, if you believe in America, then you can dream anything, you can be anything, and together, we can achieve anything,” which aroused the passions of Tim Kaine, Clinton’s running mate, and Kaine rose from his seat to cheer President Trump. Senator Elizabeth Warren offered light applause and Senator Bernie Sanders remained still….We need leaders who don’t bullshit and who do not encourage delusional Presidents.
