With No State Of The Union Speech, Nation Experiences Anxiety Wondering How We Are Doing
It is an annual tradition. Once a year the President addresses the nation from the House of Representatives. But this year, due to the government shutdown, the State of the Union speech has been delayed for weeks. And no one knows when President Trump will ascend to the podium in the House and give a report about how our nation is doing. This has left the nation in a swirl of uncertainty.
“How are we doing as a nation?” asks Jim Stevens, a mechanic in Topeka. “Are we doing well economically, or are we struggling? Are we at war, or is our military basically keeping the peace? Without the President telling us, how are we supposed to know what is going on out here?”
Ashley Parker, a waitress in Connecticut wonders the same things. “I’m out here just making it happen. But I have no idea if the country is falling apart or not. Without the State of the Union speech, we are all in the dark. Are we getting along, or is racism tearing us apart? What is happening? We don’t know. How are we supposed to act.?”
This may be the most anticipated SOTU address in history. While we don’t have the speech in front of us, we expect the nation will learn that we have the best President ever, the best economy ever, the best catfight in Congress ever, the best President ever, the best fake news ever, the best relationship with Communist dictators ever, the best broken down government ever, and the best President ever. Hopefully this report will put everyone at ease and we can go back to arguing about whether we can trust in our leaders to take care of us.
