The state-of-the-union address last night was a political home-run for Pres Trump.
It’ll be interesting to see how detractors try to spin the basic facts he laid out.
We thought he missed an opportunity at the beginning of his address, when he made common cause obvious to all: “Many of us have campaigned on the same core promises: to defend American jobs and demand fair trade for American workers; to rebuild and revitalize our nation’s infrastructure; to reduce the price of healthcare and prescription drugs; to create an immigration system that is safe, lawful, modern, and secure; and to pursue a foreign policy that puts America’s interests first.”
Considering the recent infanticide legislation passed in New York, and comments along similar lines from a Virginia governor, it could have been an excellent opportunity to add ‘protecting the most vulnerable among us’ to that list, but he may have thought that too in-your-face a point for a moment at his beginning, while weaving common bond.
(Later in his address, he did bring up the disgraceful applause NY lawmakers gave the infanticide-bill’s passing last week, while predictably, Democrats sat on their hands.)
Otherwise, a great speech, covering every key issue facing America.
All in all, without downright lies or deliberate obfuscation, detractors have a tough slog.
They needn’t worry, however…FakeNews media is always willing to carry their water.
