Let’s give them the award straight up: Worst Performance by a Minority Party at a State of the Union Address.
(Hey, it’s awards season, right?)
They broke the record. They get the prize with no runner-up for years to come.
Steny Hoyer and Nancy Pelosi watching Trump’s speech looked like a pair of sullen six-year olds on a sugar crash the day after Halloween. Bernie Sanders looked mummified. Schumer was slumped so deeply in his chair he was almost falling through the crack.
Other Democrats, even ones who should have known better or secretly felt otherwise, sat on their hands. You could see them glancing at each other, wondering whether they were allowed to applaud or stand up. What a bunch of cowards.
It was a disgraceful display of bad manners, but even more it was incredibly stupid because “the whole world was watching.” The camera was getting them all in close-up.
Who are these ungrateful corpses, middle America must have been asking. Good question. (Can you imagine how much money Pelosi has made in the stock market since Trump was elected? What does she have to be so upset about?)
More jobs? No applause. Higher wages? No applause. Lowest black unemployment in history? Crickets. ISIS disappearing? Zzzz…
What’s wrong with these people? Don’t they know nobody loves a sorehead? You think Colin Kaepernick could be elected president?
And why were they so depressed, you may ask? Easy. Here’s what they knew and what we all know. Trump is here to stay — for the next seven years. And they’re going to have to live with it.
Reason: Trump is an upper, like Reagan and JFK. All three were cheerleaders for America and made/make us feel good. That’s what wins. And why shouldn’t it? Optimism and pessimism are largely self-fulfilling prophecies. For today’s Democrats, it’s “Unhappy Days Are Here Again!”
Oh, yes, Trump gave a terrific speech, especially in the dramatic utilization of the stories of extremely well-chosen audience members. That technique has been done a lot, but never better. Donald is our Entertainer-in-Chief. Sometimes he’s funny. This time he tugged at the heart strings. The guy with the crutch was a veritable Korean Tiny Tim — one of the most amazing figures I have ever seen, a living symbol of the fight again totalitarianism.
So what’s going to happen? I’m not sure, but there’s a strong possibility that the Democratic Party is going to split. No way can centrist Democrats go against Trump without risking certain defeat. What policies do they have to differentiate themselves that would make sense to the public?
The Democratic centrists and the far left will separate. Bernie at last will have his own party. Let’s hope he has some younger people to run with. He didn’t look healthy Tuesday night.
Why are they sour? Because their one and only plan… to impeach and destroy Trump before he has the chance to have a positive impact on the nation… has failed and they have no alternative plan. They have no promises of a better path, no better policies, no means to improve on what Trump is doing and, worst of all, NO proof of the lies they have been propagating to try and depose Trump.
That look on every Democrat’s face? It said, “Well, shit… what now?”

most terrorist have only one back up plan, limited intellect does not allow for three. this is similar to the arrogant demorats. snowflakes screaming into the sky just adds to pollution and reinforces the stigma of how climate change. one should consider a tax on this type of behavior. the CPD never did find out who killed obama’s two gay lovers.
Some Trump supporters were shocked at Ivanka’s influence on Donald when it came to the liberal idea of PAID FAMILY LEAVE.
But, when the SOTU speech got to that point, and Pres Trump expressed his support of it, not a Dem applauded!
Reminded me of this 180′ from CNN on family leave:
CNN, April 22, 2017: Everyone should have a shot at paid family leave.
CNN, May 22, 2017: Trump’s budget to include paid family leave.
CNN, May 30, 2017: How paid family leave hurts women.
Do those mental gymnastics hurt much?
