    I've just tuned in - not sure I can stick it out.

    It's pretty disturbing - the clapping & chanting - is this usual behaviour for the house at a State of the Union speech? Seems positively disturbing to me.

    Interesting to see all the Dem women (and one man I think) wearing white - the colour preferred by the suffragettes, from what I have read.

    Can't imagine how Pelosi can sit there behind him and monitor every little facial twitch etc ...

    Anybody watching??

    I watched a few minutes. He sounded creepy, like Christopher Walken.

    True. Trump never could handle the truth, could he?

    I found it rather offensive that he had people there as 'exhibits' - told some self aggrandizing story or political story then had the person stand up & be recognized. Exploitive. Even a 10 year old kid with cancer - "my budget will commit $500million to combating children's cancer" - okay - and $5 billion for your wall? Priorities seem clear ...

    And when they sang happy birthday to the shooting and concentration camp survivor, 45 just had to say, "They won't do that for me!"...:rolleyes:

    I've never seen such unabashed and pervasive narcissism on display as with this man.

    Stacey Abrams had a decent message but a weak delivery, I thought.

    Absolutely normal behaviour. Nothing unusual, surprising or unexpected about it and nothing to do with Trump. Just the way it's done.


    Again - absolutely normal behaviour going back many, many years. Presidents of all parties invite people to the gallery for the speech and then tell some sort of story about them and invite them to be recognized. Quite within the bounds of tradition.

    Is orthodoxy a hard line .. especially when appearing to search for change and improvement? Brute force is best right ...

    And what remains? That's runes and left ... shards? The fractal beyond as denied ... executivized, or just executed?

    Then the lights went out in GEO Gaia and few can see through the darker times ... mental offshoots asspore?

    Less ore beans ... only satire will due where altruism is MS understood ... down there! Really a pain ...

    The perfect Pavlov’s dog response ingrained by the media.
    Good job!

    Trump IS the truth. You can spend the next 6 years on denial island, but the population is shrinking every day.

    Ya, he toots his own horn.

    But if he didn’t, nobody would know any of his accomplishments, because they are never reported. But what he said he would do, and what he has done are in alignment, and that never happens with politicians.

    And that is his trademark shtick.

    Trump IS the truth? So you think Trump is Jesus Christ?
