Stephen Colbert Conjures Up 'Russian Response' To Trump's Speech

Stephen Colbert Conjures Up 'Russian Response' To Trump's Speech

The call for unity came as the president delivered his yearly State of the Union Tuesday night in front of the joint session of Congress.

It was President Donald Trump who delivered the State of the Union address Tuesday, but House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was the one "who stole the show in terms of people paying attention to body language", saidLaura Dudley, a behavioral analyst at Northeastern University. Pelosi packed the gallery with some of Trump's sharpest critics, including Dr Leana Wen, the head of Planned Parenthood; chef Jose Andres, who has become a vocal critic of the administration's immigration policies; and five labor leaders.

This time, the dissonance between Trump's words and the political reality was more jarring than ever.

The president sought to sharpen some of the lines in the speech, and while aides urged him to congratulate Pelosi on her ascension to the speakership, they were not entirely clear that he would.

"One important thing we didn't hear from President Trump tonight was addressing climate change".

A Gallup Monday reported that a survey that ended on January 27 found that 60 percent of voters oppose a wall, up from 57 percent in June. Trump, though he has refrained from personally attacking her looks or character as he does with other rivals, said last weekend she was a danger to the country. Once again, the President insisted on demanding a ridiculous wall instead of promising to work with Members of Congress on modern, effective, border security solutions that will make the American people more safe.

Trump seemed to have unintentionally given them the opening to gloat.

'We must reject the politics of revenge, resistance and retribution, and embrace the boundless potential of cooperation, compromise and the common good, ' he said in his State of the Union address.

"The only thing that can stop it", he said, "are foolish wars, politics or ridiculous partisan investigations" - an apparent swipe at the special counsel investigation into ties between Russian Federation and Trump's 2016 campaign, as well as the upcoming congressional investigations.

He was the 76ers' main target, but they also get 221cm giant Boban Marjanovic and forward Mike Scott from the LA side. According to O'Connor, that's not yet a done deal as there is some dispute over the protections of that draft pick.

Democrats did not come to the table, and voters blamed Trump for the stalemate.

Trump is expected to focus much of his prime-time speech on dangers at the border with Mexico.

"To many people this speech will be remembered for his continued obsession with the wall, the demonization of immigrants, and his weird attack on congressional investigations".
