OMG. Loved Nancy tearing up the speech when he was done!!
What a game show production! Give-aways and declarations of great imagined
accomplishments. It was the car wreck I could not look away from.

It was creepy to say the least. Exploitive of patriots and good people like the Tuskeegee Airman.  The predictable military reunitement  and the fake surprise of Limbaugh receiving the medal of honor. This has got to be his LAST State of the Union, if we all vote.

He mentioned Harriet Tubman but not that he's the one keeping her off the $20 bull. Great visual of Nancy ripping his useless speech to shreds. Laughing

Tim Ryan walked out, calling the speech fake. He compared it to watching pro wrestling. I'm sure Bob had a smile on his face in the great beyond because he predicted an IPOTUS White House would be like watching pro wrestling. Bob was right. sunny

I watched an old episode of Jake and the Fatman instead, because if I'm gonna watch a fat fella, it's better that it be William Conrad instead of the life-support-system-for-a-rectum that the hypocritical Republicans have to clap for everytime he farts.

I'm seeing they pulled that old Republican trick -- using a black person to try to bulletproof themselves from criticism. In a speech full of absolute horseshit and baiting anyone who's not in their fascist-moron base, they honor one worthy person (while also honoring Rush Limbaugh, who's never done a goddamn thing for this country that wasn't detrimental, and cheapens the award). And so now, if you criticize Trump's speech -- as you should -- the Republicans clutch their withered little pearls and shriek, "You don't like the Tuskeegee Airmen!" As if half of 'em wouldn't be trying to lynch the guy if this was 1950 and they could get away with it. Pure mascoting in action, just so they'd have something to point to. Like taking a hostage.

Trump apparently also pandered to the religious like crazy. Republicans know where their life-support system is -- the people who like talking about Jesus, while hating everything Jesus stood for.

Anyway, Nancy Badass stole the show by ripping the speech up at the end, and so now that's all anybody's talking about, not how competently Trump might've managed to stick to his teleprompter. Thunder stolen, you vile son of a bitch. Very Happy

But, his base will be happy... and that's the only people he's even trying to be a president for. Trump's made it clear that he has nothing but contempt for most of the country and only cares about his sycophants. And his base is proving they're the same way.

To "Fact Check" something used to mean checking the facts.
Now it means CHECKING TO SEE IF THERE WERE ANY FACTS!

Good review. Only you forgot to mention Fred Guttenberg, the Parkland father whose daughter was murdered by the Russian NRA. He kept shouting at the useless pile of shit so they tossed him out. King shitstain did mention Harriet Tubman but he didn't mention he's keeping Tubman off the $20 bill so his fellow racist can remain on it. Evil or Very Mad

Not shocking: Trump's State of the Union claim to take a girl from a failing school was a total lie

Donald Trump’s State of the Union speech on Tuesday night was marked with dozens of lies, threats, and false claims that more than deserved the shredding Nancy Pelosi delivered to the text. In defending Trump’s speech, his supporters have pointed to the supposedly “uplifting” moments and personal stories that Trump slipped in between false claims about President Obama or fear-mongering over “criminal aliens.”

Among those happy stories was that of Philadelphia fourth grader Janiyah Davis, who Trump said was trapped in a “failing government school” before he made the point of awarding her, and only her, a scholarship, live, on prime time TV. Anyone watching would have seen that Janiyah was puzzled by Trump’s statements and had to be encouraged to applaud. As it turns out, there’s a very good reason—Janiyah Davis was already going to a top-notch school, had no need for a scholarship, and didn’t have a clue why Trump put her in the audience.

As the Philadelphia Inquirer reports, Janiyah attends Math, Science and Technology Community Charter School III, one of Philadelphia’s most sought-after schools. It’s a charter school, but paid for by public funds, so Janiyah and the 900 other students don’t pay tuition.

Janiyah moved to the school last year after previously attending a Christian school that did have a tuition. Based on a statement from the principal at Janiyah’s former school, it seems that someone called up the Christian school and asked about students who might need a scholarship. That principal apparently gave the White House Janiyah’s name. After this, Janiyah’s mother got a call inviting them to appear in the gallery during the SOTU.

But what the White House failed to do was to check on where Janiyah Davis was going to school, or if she needed a scholarship. They also didn’t bother to tell her mother why she and Janiyah were being invited to appear, or warn them that Trump was going to turn the camera their way during his speech.

With Republicans shouting and clapping, Trump continued the game show atmosphere of his address by informing Janiyah that she had just won a scholarship to any school she wanted to attend. Courtesy of Trump’s need for a photo-op. The problem is that Janiyah’s mother said afterwards that “I don’t view MaST as a school you want to get out of at all. I view it as a great opportunity.”

So Trump gave Janiyah Davis nothing. Which seems like the perfect ending to a story that began with Trump and Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos applauding the idea of “failing government schools” as if neither of them had anything to do with, ick, government schools. The actual point of reaching out to someone in Philadelphia appears to be because Trump wanted to take a swipe at Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf this week, because Wolf vetoed a bill that would have awarded tax credits for attending private schools—a favorite program of DeVos.

Janiyah has plenty of company. Trump has been offering all kinds of prizes to people who donate to his campaign, without bothering to follow through. And there are the veterans he stiffed during the 2016 campaign, along with all the other times he’s lied about his gifts to charities.

But that the White House brought a fourth grader and her single mom to the State of the Union to use them as props, without even bothering to ask the most basic questions about their life, inform them about why they were being invited, or ask them about being props in Trump’s speech … seems absolutely on brand for Trump.

Janiyah is black, and in Trump's mind, anyone black is in a "ghetto" situation and must be "failing." All he knows about black people is from watching Good Times. Plus, he needed a token prop, just like the Tuskeegee airman, because he saw that as a shield from criticism when he gave Rush "call me back when you take the bone out of your nose" Limbaugh the Medal of Freedom.

Conservatives are all about manipulating a narrative and giving themselves excuses while they do the wrong thing every damn time.
