Well, planet Librtard had a brief brush with our atmosphere last night, beginning at approximately 9:00 pm. The encounter lasted about an hour and 15 minutes. No response was issued from NORAD but they were obviously keeping an eye on developments.
Yes, Trump gave his first SOTUS and as you might expect some were not happy about it. Not that he could have said anything that would have quieted their phobia(s).
MSNBC host Joy Ann Reid found Trump’s appeals to patriotism quite terrifying. “Church … family … police … military … the national anthem … Trump trying to call on all the tropes of 1950s-era nationalism. The goal of this speech appears to be to force the normalization of Trump on the terms of the bygone era his supporters are nostalgic for,” Reid tweeted during the speech.
The American Civil Liberties Union bemoaned Trump said “America” too many times and that it was done in an “exclusionary” way.
Illinois Rep. Luis Gutierrez, Congress’ number one immigration booster, walked out of the speech after Republicans began chanting “U.S.A.” Gutierrez later issued a statement claiming the president’s speech was translated from Russian and that his remarks were “explicitly racist.”
Those USA chants must have set their hair on fire. Gutierrez had to walk out because he was so offended. Ah, don’t let the door hit you. But it was not just at the SOTUS, it began before Trump even left the White House.
Listening to CNN, Congressman Clyburn framed it in clear Nazi terms, comparing Trump to the earlier years of Hitler’s rise – “what was going on in Germany around 1934.”. When asked if he was directly comparing him to Hitler, he was undeterred. He said if he was making a direct comparison he would say Trump was Mussolini and Putin was Hitler. Nice. Make sure people know what you mean. He also said some of them were going to go to the SOTUS to ‘stare down’ Trump.
Right after the speech, Jake Tapper said Trump “had one hand out and one fist in the air.” From the network with both fists in the air.
