    I wonder how diverse the "among speech watchers" cohort is.

    I would imagine you get higher ratings for the SOTU among the president’s supporters, no matter who is in office.

    I thought about getting odds yesterday morning on if he'd give you the tingles again or not but I knew it was a forgone conclusion.

    Well we elected a dictator wannabe that has done everything he can to enrich himself and create a banana republic atmosphere who is also bound and determined to bring down our institutions at the bidding of his hostile foreign power handler. But even though all of that takes us closer to third world country status than we've ever been it's still somehow a saving throw from having a woman be in charge.

    Just skimmed the transcript. Lots of fearmongering over immigrants and "socialism," which I'm sure won him points among those who still label themselves Republican. Lots of exaggerated numbers and misleading omissions. So, it went pretty much exactly as expected.

    An economic miracle is taking place in the United States — and the only thing that can stop it are foolish wars, politics or ridiculous partisan investigations. If there is going to be peace and legislation, there cannot be war and investigation.
    Absurd and cringey. Also, pretty sure Nixon tried the same thing.

    The next major priority for me, and for all of us, should be to lower the cost of healthcare and prescription drugs — and to protect patients with pre-existing conditions.
    Complete lie. Trump's administration has opposed pre-existing coverage protection in court.

    Lawmakers in New York cheered with delight upon the passage of legislation that would allow a baby to be ripped from the mother's womb moments from birth.
    Another lie.

    his supporters see this as "acting presidential"

    Nothing surprising in the comments from posters or social media. His supporters still support him and his detractors still hate him. He could have literally stood up there and told knock-knock jokes or just said blah blah blah blah and gotten the same result from both sides.

    I was too busy binging NCIS on Netflix. Just now started watching that show for some reason. At any rate, it seems that was more in touch with reality than the state of the union.

    Didn’t Obamacare cover pre-existing conditions before Trump gutted parts of it?
