Personally interested if Trump is going to realize that February 5th is the Lunar New Year, typically celebrated by close to 1/4 of the world's population!

And now, the State of the Union, by President Donald Trump....

My fellow Americans, the state of the union is great, believe me, believe me.  It's great because I made it so, it's true, its true.  My administration is the most honest and law abiding in history, indeed, indeed.  Government works when I'm President, absolutely, absolutely.  I've always been a faithful and loving husband, always, always.

Now I'd like to give a shout-out to all 37 members of my campaign, associates or cabinet who have been indicted and convicted of over 70 felony counts. Don Jr, Jared, and I will be joining you soon...mark my words, mark my words.

God Bless America...

I am shocked by how well she ran this round against Trump.

By following up so quickly and re-extending the invitation she shows herself to be the better opponent, and she maintains her own integrity and dignity. Well played, Speaker Pelosi. Well played.

I am shocked by how well she ran this round against Trump.

Reallly, I don’t know of any Democrat legislation passed by the newly elected congress, if tha was indeed a win. So Trump go nothing and neither did the Democrats. McConnell grinning.

By following up so quickly and re-extending the invitation she shows herself to be the better opponent, and she maintains her own integrity and dignity. Well played, Speaker Pelosi. Well played.

She really had no choice because even though Trump got the majority of the blame for the shutdown, Pelosi's numbers shot up as well, so she does feel some pressure as well as her constituents and the new socialist Democrats are pushing more to get their agendas through the Senate. Love this President. Never retreat, never surrender.

Ladies and gentlemen, the State of the Union by President Donald Trump...

My fellow Americans, I stand here tonight supported by Ann Coulter, Laura Ingram, and Rush Limbaugh....

Yes, there actually here right behind me helping support my backbone so it will stay straight - without them, I'd cave right to the ground in a big heap of orange nothingness...

I just wish they'd stop whispering in my ear "Jeb", "Wimp", and "Loser"...

Crazy

And Trump accepted. It looks like both sides are trying working to get out the cul-de-sac Trump took our country into.

Four days ago, Trump said no budget with no wall. Dems said, no hostage taking.

Friday, three days ago, Trump surrendered.

Today, Pelosi offers Trump something, and Trump accepts.

That's called give-and-take to move forward. 'Cause Trump doesn't want another shutdown, 'cause he took a beating, and Dems don't want another shutdown 'cause its bad for the country, and American, while they blame Trump correctly for the Trump Shutdow, really just want stuff to get done.

5 ( +8 / -3 )

What type of crazy alternate reality do trump supporters live in that they think this is caving? Speaker said she wouldn't consider a state of the union until the government was reopen. Government is reopen so now they're allowing the state of the union. Is it really that hard to follow a sequence of events?

And Trump accepted. It looks like both sides are trying working to get out the cul-de-sac Trump took our country into.

...and that the Democrats refused to help fund border security, it takes two to Tango.

To do the SOTU. Pressure is building Nancy...

Likewise and the Democrats and particularly Pelosi doesn’t need more growing pressure from her constituents and newly elected socialist Democrats. So the best thing would be is for both sides to come to a middle ground.

Pelosi keeps her promise and allows Trump the SOTU on after he reopened the government.

She could very well have delayed it, but then when dealing with toddlers you cannot be one.

Burning bush, Bass

Did you not read the initial withdrawl of her invitation? It said, if you open government, you can give the SOTU. And that's what she did...It's kinda like compromising, a concept which you clearly don't understand either. No need to be so bitter about losing the first battle for a wall. Trump's bound to shut government down again mid February, or declare a national emergency which will piss off the entire GOP. Good luck with that.

Yeah..uh-huh....she knew full well that she was getting a lot of gruff for being petty, that’s the main reason she scaled back and allowed him to do his SOTU because Democrats know in the future everything they do can always come back on them if the roles are reversed. I don’t like Pelosi, but dumb she is not, she wants to remain speaker for awhile and needs all the support she can get now. Good and smart move Nancy....for once.

The Democratic legislators should bring funny noisemakers and toot them stridently every time Trump tells another one of his outrageous lies.

Because no holder of the office of Chief Executive, irrespective of party affiliation or ideological bent, has ever lied outrageously to the American public. Remember “read my lips”, “I did not have sex with that woman”, WMDs in Iraq, “mission accomplished”, or “If you like your health care plan, you can keep it”? Which is not to excuse Trump’s lying. But at least he makes it obvious for people who need such things to be highlighted and underlined for them.

And, yes, please bring the noisemakers. Let the US demonstrate to the entire world that it is a colossal and exhausted joke.

Sure they have, dems proposed a deal to reopen government for 3 weeks while discussing the border. Isn't that exactly what has happened? Where have you been the past couple of weeks, guy?

Trump hasn't won a wall. Lawmakers won't find common ground. He'll either further dig himself into a hole by closing government again or declaring "national emergency". Either way, he takes the hit. So you can blame both the Dems and the GOP for not making Trump happy, or you can blame Trump for not compromising. But you can't blame the left or right by themselves now. And if Trump decides to use his executive powers and declare a "national emergency", he's gonna be in for some pretty harsh treatment from both the left and right because nobody wants that to be the new way presidents get what they want.

Trump got beaten up by two girls (Ann Coulter and Nancy Pelosi). So laughable. And no wall. Trump caved.

Why does all of this remind me of protracted volleying in tennis or kabuki theater?!

Honestly, politicians seem to be able to behave in ways most of the rest of us could never get away with! And they get to do it with the taxpayers' footing the bill.

It's just a meaningless address, full of bloviating and empty promises. Which seems to be true of much of what politicians do all day, every day, no matter what country it is.

Ladies and gentlemen, the State of the Union by President Donald Trump...

My fellow Americans, we need a wall....walls are beautiful - they're full of covefefe...

Walls keep out illegal immigrants - and we need to do that...

All except the ones I employ at Mar-A Logo and at my Trump Golf Courses because they really are cheap labor - I save a bundle not having to pay American workers...

Just like my Trump shirt and tie factories in China - I save a bundle there too...

All you blue collar workers out their, thank you for supporting me - suckers....

The speaker of the house is supposed to set the rules of the house -- isn't that what she is doing all along and not being bullied by the president to accept his agenda? I agree with the other posters - Pelosi upheld the honor of the house procedures as the post requires.

We knew that the Trumpets with their limited literacy, had problems reading, apparently they have problems seeing and listening too. Since this was played out on all channels and is there on YouTube too, wonder how they missed it!

“Yes, if we don’t get what we want one way or the other, whether it’s through you, through military, through anything you want to call — I will shut down the government. I am proud to shut down the government. I will take the mantle.”

And Donny boy still doesnt have anything and guess what , the government is open.

I think you underestimate the lack of intelligence within Trump's base.

My comment was referring to his ideological antipodes who seem to believe that their chosen candidates/media personalities/politicians are blameless, and that Trump is the sole begetter of the political lie.

Obama, these people have quickly forgotten, was hounded by these same mandarins of the press for his inaccessibility, as well as for what they claimed were his ambiguous or outright duplicitous statements.

This is not to say that Obama is “worse”. My point is that all presidents spin outrageous lies. Quite a few conjured ones that proved lethal to many of the people they purport to represent and defend. That Trump should make his lying so overt is a wonderful gift for those who, like adults remaining steadfast in their belief in Santy Clause, are in dire need of having their tattered, fraying illusions eviscerated before their very eyes.

Doubt that - the Democrats will be polite...

But those raucous Repubs - if any of them listen to their conservative icons Coulter, Ingram, Limbaugh, Dobbs, et al; they'll be yelling "Wimp", "Jeb", "Loser" and instead of shoes, they'll be throwing back braces...

Wow, that'd be a better reality TV show than the Apprentice...

@Nicolas

My point is that all presidents spin outrageous lies. 

This is true. My point was, as obvious as Trump's lies are, Trump's base still fails to recognize them for what they are and worse, believes them to be honest truth and the path to a greater America. He is able to do this because the majority of his base is under-educated American citizens who don't understand the concept of formulating one's own opinion.

That or they play into Trump's scheme because of their self-motivated morals and unfortunately for the majority, these include racist ideologies. These same people who believe in "innocence until proven guilty" will also judge a person by the color of their skin. They would support a travel ban of Muslims because of one's religion because they are scared of what they aren't. They seriously believe that terrorists are flooding through our southern border. They think America's drug problems will be solved with a wall (and they think the wall will only cost 5.7 billion dollars). It's clearly a matter of lack in education and the belief in white supremacy. I don't think these were the issues on the table before. Like you said, some people are better liars than others. I know you aren't but, for these people to look back and continue to criticize the past without consideration for the future, that's downright stupid.

government is TEMPORARILY open. for the purpose of coming to agreement on a deal.

Which was basically the deal put to vote by democrats last Friday. Temporarily open government to try and come to an agreement. I doubt they do though. GOP's arms are tied behind their backs and can't offer anything without wall funding, and dems won't agree to a wall, so it's bound to be the same thing, a stalemate between two parties who can't agree. At least people will get some money before the next shutdown.

True enough. But I do not know if lack of education is the problem. Because I can certainly attest to knowing quite a few college-educated types, many sporting masters and doctorates from some tony institutions of higher learning who are incapable of thinking critically or independently.

That or they play into Trump's scheme because of their self-motivated morals and unfortunately for the majority, these include racist ideologies. 

I am personally skeptical of Trump’s racism, despite the claims one hears in the news. He is sort of an inverse of Obama, his negative image in the sense that like his predecessor in the Oval Office he is given to making broad, sweeping, but ultimately ambiguous statements which can be interpreted to anybody’s liking. He has never said anything explicitly racist, but what he apparently intimates sets white nationalists and social justice warriors alike foaming at the mouth. Much of what he says is rather more tame than what I was used to hearing in California from the likes of Pete Wilson, Daryl Gates, Bob Dorman, et al during the 1990s.

Additionally, a much-overlooked detail about Trump’s supporters is that a significant number of them are Hispanic, especially among (odd as it may seem to some whites) foreign-born US citizens. Remember that he was a Republican who boasted the widest margin of support among Hispanics since George W. Bush. Although the story that made the rounds post-election was of poor, rural whites carrying Trump to the White House, that result would have been impossible without the 31% of Hispanics supporting him as well.

There are quite a few Hispanics, including foreign-born ones who are actually in favor of a border wall, aghast at the trans phenomenon and what they perceive as attacks on the traditional families by the left, and were displeased by Clinton’s bumbling outreach to them. However, given the divisiveness of their views, few of these people are willing to ever speak on the record about their political inclinations. But being Hispanic myself, I know quite a few of these people personally.

No, the agreement was to negotiate. There is no requirement of a deal.

You obviously haven’t looked at how the other shutdowns of the past 30 years have been resolved. None of them ended up with the team who shut it down getting what they wanted. Instead they end with some face saving excuse for ending the shut down. Such as agreeing to negotiate (which would happen anyways).

Trumpers Dec 2018 when Pelosi dis-invited him to the SOU: How dare Nancy disrespect the President like this, this is immoral, this is unconstitutional, its unfair, how could she do this?

Trumpers Jan 19 when she invites him back, after Trump caves and re-opens govt with no wall funding: Nancy caved and invited him back for the SOU, look at her - she got played.....

I wonder if he caved because he didn't want to be denied the SOTU, becoming a mention in history books for all time for being the only president ever to be dis-invited.

31% does not represent a majority, doesn't even represent a larger minority,

69% of Hispanics voted Democrat in the midterms. That should tell you what the majority of them think about Trumps persona and his wall. of all the races a higher percentage of women voted democrat than men. with the US population being 51% women you can understand how the women's vote lost Trump the house.

31% does not represent a majority, doesn't even represent a larger minority,

Quite true. However, it appears that you may be ignorant or not familiar with how US presidential elections work. While a candidate who boasts only 31% support of Hispanics would be fatal for a presidential candidate in a direct democracy, it is enough to secure a win in a representative one.

Had rural whites alone or even all whites, male and female, voted for Trump in 2016, that likely would still have precluded him a place in the Oval Office. This demographic would have to contend with being dispersed among various voting districts where they may hold only a fractional majority, or be in the minority outright. Additionally, you have a reality where this demographic is also in bitter ideological feuding amongst one another in various districts and states. Therefore this pro-Trump faction would require at least a nominal pocket of support from other key demographics. They managed that feat in places with significant and growing enclaves of foreign-born Hispanics: Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Ohio, and the Deep South. In areas where voting was down to a razor-thin margin, it took only a couple hundred or so Hispanics in each district to turn the vote in Trump’s favor, thereby ensuring their state would allow its electoral votes to him.

Believe it or not, there not a statistically insignificant number of Hispanics who are unhappy with the Democratic Party for a variety of reasons, and are willing to stand behind Trump—self-evident flaws and all.

While a candidate who boasts only 31% support of Hispanics would be fatal for a presidential candidate in a direct democracy, it is enough to secure a win in a **representative one.**

it certainly was enough to win the house and convincingly at that.

Believe it or not, there not a statistically insignificant number of Hispanics who are unhappy with the Democratic Party for a variety of reasons, and are willing to stand behind Trump—self-evident flaws and all.

if youd told me that Hispanic had voted say 40+% Trump, then that would be impressive. If you look at the stats its the womens vote accross all races that bascially defeated the white mens vote (majority Trump votes)

This should tell you that it wasnt any one race that won the Dems the house it was the womens vote, its not difficult to understand why

Do you really think Wimpy is going to do a "Trump Shutdown" again?  After getting all the blame from the American people and all the humiliation from the far-right last time?

McConnell will tell him "no way" - you'll hand both the Senate and White House to the Democrats in 2020.

Which is why I'm all for it - just do it Donnie - go on TV and tell everyone how proud you are to shut things down again and that you'll own the mantle...

We'll see what your core base support really is - 20%?  15%?  5%?

Trump hasn't won a wall. Lawmakers won't find common ground. He'll either further dig himself into a hole by closing government again or declaring "national emergency".

And still the Democrats won’t be able to pass legislation, personally I really don’t mind if Trump has to negotiate and go a little less on the, but not giving up on it, a bit of compromise, so where do the liberals stand? So far NOT when it comes to border security, they say it, but never mean it, nor do they ever show it, so now it’s time to see if Nancy is a talker only or not.

Either way, he takes the hit.

And from the polls, she is too now.

So you can blame both the Dems and the GOP for not making Trump happy, or you can blame Trump for not compromising. But you can't blame the left or right by themselves now. And if Trump decides to use his executive powers and declare a "national emergency", he's gonna be in for some pretty harsh treatment from both the left and right because nobody wants that to be the new way presidents get what they want.

So then the rational and logical thing now is for the Democrats to stop saying No to everything and try to sit down and make a serious compromise if they ever want to get something done legislatively.

This should tell you that it wasnt any one race that won the Dems the house it was the womens vote, its not difficult to understand why

But women also need to understand the way they’re moving this war on men crap and if it keeps going there could be a backlash at the polls again where you see men rising up, because this constant emasculation of men across the country will in no doubt backfire at this rate.

They would support a travel ban of Muslims because of one's religion because they are scared of what they aren't.

What a load of crap! Indonesians, Dubai, Jordanians weren’t hit by the ban. Well, so much for the Islamophobia argument.

They seriously believe that terrorists are flooding through our southern border.

Yes...

They think America's drug problems will be solved with a wall (and they think the wall will only cost 5.7 billion dollars). It's clearly a matter of lack in education and the belief in white supremacy. I don't think these were the issues on the table before. Like you said, some people are better liars than others. I know you aren't but, for these people to look back and continue to criticize the past without consideration for the future, that's downright stupid.

The drug problem won’t be solved by a wall, but it will greatly slow them down and many will turn back and even the ones that do try and sneak it with a wall like the ones the President wants it would take time to climb or dig under, enough time for border patrol to apprehend these people and get off of this White Supremacy garbage, you have a lot of Americans that are Hispanic or Hispanic in origin and want to see the border closed and the goes for Blacks and other minorities. I wish liberals would stop screaming racism for any little infraction, getting kind of old now.

Yeah. Well, Trump craves adulation, and the SOTU address might buy him a few days distraction from his mounting legal problems. But, as usual, he hasn't thought this through. What on earth is he going to say?

For all his employment numbers and stock market readings (look at the stats to see a steady continuum from the early days of Obama's administration), the State of the Union has been shredded by Trump. That he even wants to give the speech is laughable.

I predict his address will dig his hole deeper.

Delusional to think Americans who want drugs won't get them or be slowed down by a wall.

they can rise up all they like , registered women voters outnumber men, the rise up has already started the record number women in the House is proof of that, keep disrespecting and marginalising women and it'll only get worse. Like I just stated women have more political power in the US when you count the number of registered voters, and theyll vote for whoever represent their needs the most. Got to love democracy dont you.!

women should stop trying to turn them into something that they are not

I'm not sure what you mean? People who rape, should be labeled monsters. People who talk about grabbing pussy in the locker room, cheat on their wives, jokingly call a woman Pocahontas, well, I think its pretty justifiable in labeling these kind of people pigs. But I guess you're ok with all that eh?

But women also need to understand the way they’re moving this war on men crap

its not war against all men, it war against chauvinistic men that treat women like objects and second class citizens, no need to guess who sits top that pile in the minds of many voting women

the point is the gender politics is going to have a very bad backlash towards women if this continues sooner or later

So stop indulging in gender politics then. Women aren't asking for much; just equal rights, pay and a little bit less violence towards them. Nobody is stopping you going to the rodeo and drinking Bud.

I pretty much don’t, but if you go by them, she’s not looking to clean on this one, to as bad as Trump did, but she still got buckshot.

This is basically what a man who thinks he needs to defend himself for raping women tends to think. And again, with the polls,

Buba?

we know you only read polls on infowars etc. Not worth mentioning...

No, you don’t know what I read, nice try though.

I'm not sure what you mean? People who rape, should be labeled monsters. People who talk about grabbing p**** in the locker room, cheat on their wives, jokingly call a woman Pocahontas, well, I think its pretty justifiable in labeling these kind of people pigs. But I guess you're ok with all that eh?

I do not know how we got on the subject of rape and monsters, but I’m used to you guys going on a tangent....anyway, back on point, the #metoo and the so called war on oppressed women (whatever that means) is at best fictitious. When you have to go around feeling like you have to be sorry and basically apologize just for breathing doesn’t inspire confidence at all, another reason why the sexes are growing apart in an extreme unhealthy way.

You're not going to see that because she can't do that. You know he doesn't take a salary, right? Unlike Nancy, who, like him, doesn't need it, but she takes it anyway.

I did and there was. If you can’t find, don’t know what to tell you, Jim. But be that as it may, 41% is better than 29% if it were that low, then it’s panic time, but as such, it’s about usual and not that bad actually given what just happened.

How far my nation of birth has fallen. The Trump Presidency unraveling further into the bowels of repugnance and (spoken as a liberal who is originally from Pelosi's district) the Democrats elect a corrupt and hypocritical leader as speaker.....again....

I have long given up on the fact that any of the "leaders" in the U.S. have the interest of their constituency in mind and their actions are all related to either the acquisition of or maintenance of power, something the founders of the U.S. warned against.

It is interesting to see the average citizen or average person claim victory for "their side". Yes the U.S. does in fact have "two sides". These sides however are not "Democrat" and "Republican". These sides are the "Elite" or "Political class" and the rest of us. The State of the Union must go on.....however many realize that the true state of the Union is about as divided as we have ever seen it with no true sign of anyone that can heal this division emerging in the near future.

-2 ( +1 / -3 )

it certainly was enough to win the house and convincingly at that.

Of course, in time-honored American fashion, these results could very well become meaningless by November 2020. People vote all the time for local politicians of one party, then vote for a presidential candidate from the opposite party. Off the top of my head, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama all were re-elected despite the opposition party holding a majority in one or both houses of Congress.

if youd (sic) told me that Hispanic (sic) had voted say 40+% Trump, then that would be impressive. If you look at the stats its the womens vote accross all races that bascially defeated the white mens vote (majority Trump votes)

This should tell you that it wasnt any one race that won the Dems the house it was the womens vote, its not difficult to understand why

Did not a majority of white women vote Trump in 2016? I believe that just over half did.

I am presuming you may not be from the US, or understand how the US electoral system works. But 31% in 2016 was no negligible amount in a representative democracy. Had either McCain or Romney polled that strongly with Hispanics, the Republicans might have been able to at least cut Obama down to a single term. Tellingly, Hillary Clinton polled sluggish numbers among Hispanics, at least comparatively to Obama and especially her husband. The US Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, for example, poured some withering invective upon her and her campaign in the days following the election, complaining that they felt that Hispanics had been being slighted by the Clinton camp. While no single race is responsible for electing Trump (if anything it was a collaborative effort), it may very well be that a single racial demographic cost Clinton her election.

Looking forward to 2020, one must admit that the US general public has a very short attention span, is incapable of recalling crucial details of even very recent history, and in all likelihood will forget this entire shutdown fiasco—which was contrived by both parties. Given the glut of Democratic candidates for the White House, which will potentially result in vicious internecine sniping during the primaries, as well as the resentment already manifest in certain quarters that one particular candidate is apparently being groomed for a party coronation à la Hillary Clinton and you have a situation where Trump may just eke out another unlikely victory next year.

This sentence doesn't make any sense. I hope he does declare a national emergency. The wall won't get built during his time in office either way, which means it won't get built later on. It might be the best option, and then the dems can justify calling a national emergency on real problems, like gun crime and move on NRA.

It depends, now if we’re talking about ?Trump, he’s always hovered consistently between these numbers, so for him, it’s actually not that bad really. Once he gets in his 20s then we can star to panic, but again given the events swirling around him, the numbers are not that bad.

His average high in 2 years is 45 (and that was at the beginning of his term). It slowly dropped since the shutdown and now, it currently sits at 41. He won the election by a very slim margin. Any drop in approval from 45% should set off panic alarms for the GOP that they need shape up Trump or risk losing it in 2020.

What do you think about Dems costing us 11 billion

Oh, have you already started to try to re-write history? This was TRUMP'S shutdown, that he PROUDLY took credit for, as he should, seeing as he is of the opinion that a shutdown is the result of a weak leader who won't sign a bill:

If you say who gets fired, it always has to be the top. Problems start from the top, and they have to get solved from the top, and the president’s the leader, and he’s got to get everybody in a room, and he’s got to lead. And he doesn’t do that, he doesn’t like doing that, that’s not his strength."

"when they talk about the government shutdown, they’re going to be talking about the president of the United States, who the president was at that time. They’re not going to be talking about who was the head of the House, the head the Senate, who’s running things in Washington. So I really think the pressure is on the president."

“FACT – the reason why Americans have to worry about a government shutdown is because Obama refuses to pass a budget.”

It's very clear, by Trump's own claiming of the shutdown, as well as his clearly stating that a shutdown is the fault of the president - and that's in addition to the fact that he threw out an unrealistic ultimatum after already making an agreement - that Trump is clearly the one who cost the people $11 million. And his poll numbers are showing.

Why didn't he do anything for two years to fund the wall? He had McConnell and Ryan on his team. It was all there, all Trump had to do was tell them to send him a funding bill and he would sign it - done.

But that didn't happen did it? So Trump shuts down the government causing needless pain to the economy and families, let alone endanger our security - why?

It was all there, all Trump had to do was tell them to send him a funding bill and he would sign it - done. 

I agree, can’t refute that, but that’s past us, can’t turn back time. Now in the here and present, let’s see what the weak Democrats will do, will they keep their promise or not?

But that didn't happen did it? So Trump shuts down the government causing needless pain to the economy and families, let alone endanger our security - why? Why wasn't it funded between Jan 17 and Dec 18? The whole shutdown could have been avoided - and Donnie wouldn't have had to suffer the humiliation from Ann Coulter. 

Why?

I don’t see it as a humiliation, she’s just a best selling book offer, she knows nothing about politics, I always find it amusing when Ann says something, she funny.
