Top 19 Surprising Takeaways From Trump's Unifying State Of The Union Address
President Trump gave one of the most unifying speeches in memory at the State of the Union address last night. He unified Republicans in their hatred for Democrats, and he unified Democrats in their hatred for America. Here are the top 10 surprising takeaways from the historic speech.
1 - President Trump agreed with his predecessor, President Obama that the state of our union is “strong.”
2 - Democrats ‘fact-checked’ everything Trump said.
3 - Republicans ‘fact-checked’ nothing Trump said.
4 - Democrats refused to cheer when Trump called for the protection of babies from late-term abortion.
5 - Republicans don’t care that there was no call to defund Planned Parenthood, the leading provider of abortions in America.
6 - Trump recommended that everyone stop investigating him.
7 - Republicans looked to their leader to know when to applaud.
8 - Democrats looked to their leaders to know when to applaud.
9 - Republicans were shocked that Democrats did not applaud with them.
10 - In a shocking move, President Trump took credit for every good thing in America since the Puritans landed on Plymouth Rock.
11 - Bernie Sanders was disappointed when Trump said America would never be a socialist nation.
12 - Conservatives were disappointed that Trump didn’t know America is already a socialist nation.
13 - Democrats loved the Democrat response to the State of the Union address.
14 - Republicans made fun of the Democrat response to the State of the Union address.
15 - Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was hyper-critical of Trump’s speech, except the part where she was giving high fives to her female friends when the President flattered her on her success.
16 - Vice-President Mike Pence once again looked like the front seat passenger in a car driven by Stevie Wonder. (Go ahead… look at the photo attached to this article.)
17 - Democrat congresswomen who were part of the largest incoming class of female legislators in history wore white to protest the oppression of women in America. (Virginia Governor Robert Northam said he hadn’t seen that many Democrats wearing all white since last week’s Ku Klux Klan meeting.)
18 - Republicans wish Trump would tweet with the same coherence and depth he used when he wrote his State of the Union speech.
19 - The nation is relieved that our brutally divided union is so strong.
If we were to add one more set of surprises, it would be…
Republicans came away from the speech believing more strongly that Trump is the Messiah.
Democrats came away believing more strongly that Trump is the anti-Christ.
So everything is as it should be. Basically America saw its shadow. 2 more years of frigid politics.
