Ah a sign of the times: 

Fact-checking website crashes during Trump's first State of the Union

Overall he seems to have done good for Trump  :

CNN's Reality Check Team vets Trump's State of the Union

I said in another thread that I can't believe how bad most of the Dems made themselves look by not clapping for things like lowest ever unemployment for afri-amer and Hispanics,

Considering that A. declining unemployment was a trend prior to Trump taking office and B. that despite lower unemployment black unemployment rates are still somewhere around twice that of whites I can understand why people weren't clapping for that bit of fluff.

Pelosi looked like someone was holding a turd under her nose.

Considering what comes out of her mouth she just might have been :lol:

I thought it was really good.

I watched very little, but I agree with you.   The democrats made fools of themselves with their behavior.   They sure reinforced their stereotype of pouters.    The views of Pelosi and Bernie were almost comical.

It was a calculated political move to shore up the far left side of their base who don't view it as pouting but as taking a moral stance.

Alienating a lot of voters to gain a few? Most Democrat voters are reasonable people (most people are more center in general,) so I imagine just about anyone watching the show would have the same feelings toward the "sore losers".

IDK, as of early this morning polling on it is all over the place.

The media did a great job over the preceding 24 hours or so of explaining to the public why things like lowest black unemployment might not get applause along with preparing people for the incongruous message he delivered regarding unity. 

Like always I'm guessing the majority walked away feeling the exact same as when they turned it on.

To be fair to Bernie, he'd have a right to feel resentful (though not so much at the Trumpster as at his own party).

Most of the news around here is about the Democrat response from Joe Kennedy.

Was that drool coming out of Joe Kennedy’s mouth?

My favorite quote from SOTU night : 

 

Quote

“Even though I disagreed with almost everything he said, for Trump, the speech was clear and well-delivered,” Rep. Luis Gutierrez said in a statement. “Whoever translated it for him from Russian did a good job.”

 

I don't necessarily agree with the statement but its funny as hell

"House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi urged her Democratic colleagues to stay in the chamber Tuesday night during President Trump’s first State of the Union address, or don’t come at all,"

Even supposing we believe him, this is just so pathetically childish that Ms. Pelosi even had to say this that I don't see how anyone could possibly continue to give the "Democrats" any credibility at all. They just don't seem to have any self awareness how childish they make themselves look, as if the whole Russiagate farce wasn't enough to embarrass them. :no:

Why is that childish?

Who knows what garbage is going to spew forth from Trump's mouth at any given time, walking out on people spewing garbage is kind of a human tradition.

It sounds like if that were to happen she was just trying to keep the focus on the potential garbage rather than their walking out.

Sorry Farmer, they have no dignity at all. They're just making themselves look like silly petulant children.

For the record I feel like I'm walking a fine line here, I'm not trying to defend the individuals, just the human response.

Why is that childish?  Because regardless of what anyone thinks of Trump, he is the duly elected president of the united states and regardless of how you feel about the man, you show respect for the office as the republicans did for the previous eight years.  Time for the democrats to stop acting like petulant little children and act like the leaders they are supposed to be.  The nation should be grateful that we finally have a president in office again that will reach across the aisle.  Obama wouldn't do this, he did everything through decree which is why nothing he did is going to last.  The democrats should be embarrassed that this newbie political ignoramus is doing a better job at being a politician than the last guy.

Thank you for that OS, I agree.
