I picked "I have to wash my hair." Made me think of one of the stupidest things I ever said as an excuse. I'd had sex with a woman. The next day she called asked about seeing me and I said "I have to work on my car."

Anybody who knows me knows that is total crap and of course I'm sure she knew that was total crap. I still can't believe I did that.
Well, I believe that I must tell the truth
And say things as they really are
But if I told the truth and nothing but the truth
Could I ever be a star?

Always more interesting to see how each literal side of the aisle reacts to what is said more so than what is said. CBS gives you the camera angle to see the whole chamber.

Donks just sitting there when Trump says black unemployment is at a record low.

Even if you hate Trump, you have to admit that he comes off like a president the few times that he gives these prepared, teleprompter speeches.

He’s going strong populist. Smart move. If he survives the investigations and the economy doesn’t tank he might be a tough out in 2020.

Haven't watched one of these since 1995. It was the Clinton "era of big government is over" speech. I thought he meant "the error of big government is over". Still disappointed.

1st I’d watched in about a dozen years.
-I see the blacks in Congress decide to self segregate like they’re in HS or something.
-As soon as Trump was done a large chunk of the donks were literally out of their seats and rushing to the exits. Reminded me of a packed stadium right at the end of a close game where almost everyone stays till the end and you have a chunk of the crowd making a mad dash to beat the traffic. The DC traffic can’t be that bad at 10:30-11:00 PM..

You watched a 75 minute speech and those were your takeaways? Guess I didn't miss much. :coffee:

There were many takeaways. I’m not going to sit here going point by point on all of them. Here’s another. The blacks in Congress are apparently unhappy at the lowest black unemployment rate ever. Trump mentioned that, the camera panned to them, none stood and clapped (at least not the main group of them on the rink side with their matching colorful scarves, the and they all looked expressionless or pissed. :suspicious:

Literally every bit of good news Trump gave, the donks didn’t seem happy about.

We need to build that wall and put those shitbag Democrats that disrespected the President of the United States on the southern side! Sitting there like a bunch of stupid babies proving they are the party of NON compromise

Probably the best SOTU address in the history of our country!
