9 leftists sources and 1 rightist source, and yet the speech got more than one
complement, and struck some fear that it was just too good. It must
have been a great speech!For all those who labeled the child from
Covington as having given a snarky look, compare that to Pelosi's look
while she gave the mock applause to the President, and maybe you will figure out
what snarky actually looks like.
@Utefan60 "The fact checkers were out and finding flaws in his speech.
And there were many! "Yes- such as one fact checker complaining
that Trump said that one in three women were sexually assaulted attempting to
cross the border - demanding that it was actually only 31%; while another
fact checker complained that Trump was wrong because the statistic was much
higher (around 60%-80%)Which merely illustrates that the fact
checkers cant keep their facts straight (and tend to be consumed with
President Trump State of the Union speech was full of patriotism something that
Liberals need to be reminded of, that the Majority of Americans love and are
proud of there country .
If you don't watch why comment?He was brilliant working the
crowd. He got the dems standing up and dancing for him, it was a smart move as
he calls for unity. Trump is hypocritical, he didn't call for
unity until he needed it, but now that he's got the need he made a
compelling request - and his opponents run on being his opponents and can't
look good after this.
The media should have taken the approach the majority of Americans did. Not
watch! The SOU has become nothing more than a campaign rally.
From time to time, President Trump has held out his hand to the Democrats,
Don't the Democrats want those agenda items mentioned by the President,
namely low unemployment. higher wages. disengaging from wars that are going
nowhere ( point of diminishing returns - known to businessmen. but not to
politicians ), lawful immigration ? They previously have been for these goals.
Not now. All they do is form some sort of outraged chorus along with those media
types whose opinions oozed negative bias. President Trump is willing to work
with the Democrats for those goals that help all Americans, not just factions.
Are the Democrats and their allies so convinced that Trump 'stole' the
election ? Even considering a pro-Clinton media bias; even considering all those
unsmart moves on Clinton's part, calling millions of Americans
'deplorables'; poor campaigning in important states; playing loose
with classified information and the DNC paid-for Steele Dossier ? @ Utefan60-
Fact checkers have been known ( SOTU 2019 ) to give misleading information;
8000 is too neat a number, for one.
Some are suggesting that Pelosi was applauding Trump for creating more jobs for
women. I think the opposite, I think she was applauding the women who, through
civil protest and action gained a more fair standing. Of course
Trump would love to think everything good is because of him and so, being the
narcissist he is, he figured everyone was applauding him.Good
leaders take a bullet and deflect the praise. Trump is first to take the praise
and last to take responsibility.
President Trump's SOTU was not only a home run--it was a grand slam! It
was a game winning hit. Jerry Falwell Jr. proclaimed it, “Best State of
the Union speech in my lifetime delivered by the best POTUS since George
Washington and it’s not even over yet! God bless DonaldTrump!” I
The fact checkers were out and finding flaws in his speech. And there were
many! Is was said by many commentators that if Trump had been truthful in many
of his comments it would have been good for him. This meaning he lied several
times when the truth would have been better.Why does his speech
writer not proofread and verify facts?One was that he claimed to
have created more jobs than any President in history. Easily provable as false.
President Obama had much higher growth in 2014. Not a hard fact to check, yet
he lied in front of Congress and the American public. It's hard
to know what to believe with a man that has lied over 8,000 verifiable times
since he took office. It's impossible not to cry wolf. He
didn't mention Social Security, Medicare, Infrastructure, or even Health
Care. These are the things that are most important to the citizens in this
country. His "wall" and immigration rhetoric ruled the night. Women in white was an amazing statement against Trump and the recent Supreme
Court Justice. Those women stood out!
@The MeloristWhen did Trump ever say "(telling them to sit down
and not applaud like they did)."Never said it, so I am not sure
what you are saying. This is why we are all tired of hearing "Fake
News", because of comments like this.
I thought it was excellent. The Democratic rebuttal was a failure though.
Complaining about kids in cages and the shut down (both also done by Obama)
Not sure why my last post was denied which simply reflected on Trump's
condescending tone in addressing the women in the DNC side (telling them to sit
down and not applaud like they did).I found Trump very stiff,
boring, and that he kept sticking his chin up in the air like he was looking
down his nose at everyone.Creepy.
What stands out to me is not the partisan politics of the two parties in
Washington (as bad as that is!), but what really bothers me is the vile, vicious
and obviously biased and divisive comments from the national media. I love
freedom of the press, but when they are so irresponsible in pushing more hatred
and division, then maybe we are focusing too much attention on Trump and Pelosi,
ant not enough attention on demanding that the national news media stop their
venomous diatribe. Journalism is supposed to simply present the facts and let
the public make up our own minds. It should not be in the business of telling
us how to think, or to "think" in the biased way they do.
Did you notice that rather large brooch on Speaker Pelosi’s lapel? If
you’re wondering what that is, you’re not alone. It is a
representation of the Mace of the Republic, or the Mace of the US House of
Representatives. The mace is modeled on an ancient weapon of the same name
(think of an iron club). House rules indicate that the speaker may direct the
Sergeant at Arms to lift the mace and present it before an offender, to restore
order to the House. While history has no record that it has ever
been used to actually club down the disorderly, it has been removed from its
pedestal a dozen or more times and held in front of offending lawmakers by the
House sergeant-at-arms. So great is the respect for it as a symbol of law and
order that order was restored each time.It’s the
people’s house, and the people have entrusted it to Speaker Pelosi for
this term. Along with it comes the power to maintain order in the House.Wearing it was quite a statement wasn’t it?
What more do Conservatives want? Nancy Pelosi gave him a standing O. Granted, it
was for creating more jobs for Democratic women in Congress, a fact that Trump
seemed to have missed, but nonetheless.
Trump knows how to work a crowd
Why was not the great Coulter shut down explained? Conservatives did not get it
Thank you, Mr. Scribner, for summarizing Democrat propaganda, so we don't
have to bother reading it.
Everyone but Fox seemed honest in their assessment, fox is still trying to use
the partisan investigations...by republicans? Not uniting, nothing
new, more rhetoric, and he seemed confused when his comment about women in
congress was met with sarcastic applause by women who ran because Trump was
president, but not because they are fans, quite the opposite.
You know it was a great speech if that is what these people have to say.
