LIVE VIDEO: Trump’s State Of The Union Address

USA Today reports:

President Trump said he’s learned that he can’t always run the government like a business because millions of people are impacted by the decisions he makes as president.

“When you’re a businessperson, you don’t have to worry about your heart, the heart. You really do what’s best for you — you know, for almost purely monetary reasons,” Trump told a group of news anchors at the White House in advance of his State of the Union address Tuesday night.

Trump, a real estate mogul, campaigned in large part on his résumé as a businessman. Now that he’s president, Trump said he has to put himself in the position of people who will be affected by his decisions on issues like immigration.

The excerpts below were just released.

  • Pollos Hermanos

    Things I’d rather do other than watch the State of the Union Address:

    1. Get laser hemorrhoid surgery.
    2. Go to a Nickelback concert.
    3. Listen to Fran Drescher and Sarah Palin get into a screaming match.
    4. Go to the DMV.
    5. Jury duty.
    6. Shove things in my peehole.
    7. Lick the floors in beach bathrooms.
    8. Go to a children’s recital.
    9. Shove a lava lamp up my butt.
    10. Pee on an electric fence.
    11. Run barefoot through a dog park at night.

    Any other suggestions?

    • Paula

      Have you personally experienced #9? Just curious.

    • Dreaming Vertebrate

      11. Relax with a nice stiff
      drink.

    • Moebym of the Returners

      Stick hot needles in my nails

      Get more teeth removed without anesthesia

      Drink a gallon of kombucha

      Clean up dog diarrhea

      • safari

        What would physically happen to a person if they drank a gallon of kombucha? (It tastes like the bottom of a pop/beer bottle recycling bag. I drink it on occasion because it’s “healthy”.)

        • Moebym of the Returners

          Probably vomit. I’ve never met a single person who likes the stuff, or likes it enough to down a gallon.

      • Cuberly Deux

        ….or drink that gacky tapioca slime ball drink? Bleh! I tried it once and I literally gagged.

        • safari

          I like bubble tea. And fish-eye tapioca pudding.

          • Cuberly Deux

            Like tapioca pudding, but they have that drink with the really large tapioca balls in it. It’s usually fruit based but the balls sort of melt a bit and it turns it to slime.

            Mostly see it in Japan Town in SF.

            I’m shocked people don’t choke on that.

          • Lars Littlefield

            It’s boba! A lovely treat!

          • Cuberly Deux

            Ewww….no no no no….

        • Lars Littlefield

          You don’t like cherry Coke boba. But it is divine!

        • Moebym of the Returners

          Would that be bubble tea? I actually do like that drink.

          • Cuberly Deux

            Not sure, this is like a melted strawberry milkshake with those large tapioca balls in it. I don’t think it has tea in it.

            I see them sold in Japan Town in SF.

          • 🐾vorpal🐾

            You can get a thick, milky version, or a thinner version with tea. Either way, it’s called boba or bubble tea and it is divine.

            One of the first things I do when back in Canada or the US is get one.

          • JackFknTwist

            I’ve just tuned in…..what’s this about thick and milky ?

            Just WhatsApp me now .

          • 🐾vorpal🐾

            LOL I don’t know where you are, but if it’s Canada / the US, call me impressed. I didn’t think anyone in either of those two countries ever heard of WhatsApp. Here in Chile it’s essential to do anything.

          • JackFknTwist

            Tonight I’m in Dublin, Ireland.
            I tend to ramble a lot……and not just in my posts !

            I live by WhatsApp…..it’s free and fast !
            My USA friends are always on WhatsApp with me….it’s trans Atlantic calls and vids !

          • Stogiebear

            I can tell that at some point in your childhood someone traumatized you with large tapioca. When you go to bed tonight remember not to dream about large tapioca!

        • 🐾vorpal🐾

          Blasphemy! Bubble tea is pure bliss.
          Honeydew and taro in particular are good.
          =sigh=
          I wish I could find it here.

          • John

            I love taro anything…..

          • 🐾vorpal🐾

            We used to get taro pancakes in Hawaii and they were some of the best pancakes I ever had.

      Actually #3 would be entertaining. Bet Drescher could rip Sarah a new one.

      • Ginger Snap

        I was thinking the same thing.

    • pch1013

      3. Listen to Fran Drescher and Sarah Palin get into a screaming match with Gilbert Gottfried and Roseanne Barr.

      I’ll be pounding wine by the funnel, but that’s just Trump-era Tuesdays for me. So glad CW is showing Black Lightning, so I can watch that instead of the SOTU.

      I’m hoping someone will take the whole speech and put it on YouTube captioned with fact-checking but of course, that could take a while.

    • Ragnar Lothbrok

    A wonderful speech and that is all it is. Not one word of truth in it but I am sure Politifacts will say they are all true.

  • AtticusP

    I think I’ll pass.

    The Internet is a wondrous place. Somewhere, someone is watching masturbating monkeys.

    I don’t plan to be one of them, but that sounds more interesting than watching #45 read from a TelePrompter, and then listen to the pundits say how “presidential” he was.

    I wish somebody could hack the TelePrompTer. Have him say something about “I admit that I am being blackmailed by Putin.” By the time he figures out what he said, he would’ve told the truth for the first time in decades.

  • Ninja0980

    Funny how when Obama was in office Republicans said no to anything and everything yet Democrats are supposed to come together for Trump?
    Fuck that.

    • safari

      They won on that platform. Get it yet, Nancy?

      • Friday

        Except their voters were demonstrably factually-deceived both times, and throughout.

      • pch1013

        yes, for 8+ years the GOP was the Anti-Obama Party – and it has NEVER been more successful.

        But for some reason the Democrats aren’t supposed to be the Anti-Trump Party.

        Fuck that shit.

      • -M-

        Obama won, resoundingly and twice, on a platform that all of us could come together for our mutual benefit.

        Strangely and sadly, Republicans won, politically, on their absolute refusal to do so.

  • safari

    Well hell, someone has to actually watch it so we can all not.

    • Reality.Bites

  • jimbo65

    • safari

      That’s so Canadian.

  • Reality.Bites

    Although the CW never shows SOTU, and it’s in its usual time slot, I like the fact the Trump’s competition on broadcast TV will be Black Lightning.

  • gaycuckhubby
    • Karl Dubhe 2

      Likewise. Although I do think that the report will eventually be released, as for what happens after that…

      Haven’t a clue.

      I’ll hope for the best, and prepare for the worst.

      • Cuberly Deux

        Yep.

    • Natty Enquirer

      I think Rosenzweig is right, though it is a shame that an unelected unit of the government which reports to the President has declared that the President is beyond the reach of prosecution. That’s the sort of thing I would expect in Putin’s Russia.

      • Karl Dubhe

        But the original determination about charging the president was done in the 70s. He’s not beyond the reach of prosecution, it’s just much more difficult to do so.

        Then again, It would be nearly impossible for me to conceive of the idea of charging my head of state. Even though it did once happen, back in the 1640s.

      • GeoffreyPS

        Beyond the reach of federal prosecution maybe, but possibly not state.

    • jimbo65

      Which is why there has to be a blue tsunami. To finally have a Congress that will impeach and remove him.

    • Jean-Marc in Canada
      • Karl Dubhe

        As it led to the Terror, and then to the Napoleonic Wars, I’m not so sure it really worked out well for them. Just saying…

        • Jean-Marc in Canada

          Sweety, I love you, but I think you know what I really meant. Be nice. This is, after all, Authoritarian Pussy Grabber Chairman Meow we’re talking about. 🙂

          • Karl Dubhe

            I do, but really… In every case that I can think of the execution of a king leads to negative results in the short run.

            I favour locking the son of a bastard up, for life. But it’s got to be done lawfully.

            I think you know what I mean as well.

    • KarenAtFOH

      From the article:
      “Indeed, in many ways, the sheer numerosity and blatantness of the president’s interventions suggests that he really is sincere in thinking that he did nothing wrong.”
      Another apologist for his orange greatness. Disgusting.

      • gaycuckhubby

        I don’t see that as being an apologist

    • Mark_in_MN

      The perspective here is not unsound, given it’s starting points, although that doesn’t mean it’s correct. But, one problem here is that the starting point that a sitting president may not be indicted is fundamentally unsound (well, actually it is just plain and blatantly wrong), even though it is the long-standing rule and perspective of the Department of Justice.

  • Karl Dubhe 2

    I may watch it, if I can get stoned enough.

    Otherwise, fuck to the no.

    • Reality.Bites

      We don’t want you to OD Karl!

      • Karl Dubhe 2

        If it was possible to OD on pot… 😀

        • Bryan

          It technically is, but it’s physically not likely doable. You would have to do roughly your own body weight in weed within 15 minutes to receive an LD50 dose. Since I don’t think anybody can smoke 150+lbs of weed in just 15 minutes because of lung capacity limitations.

          Hence possible but not probable and like with the Thujone content in absinthe, you’d die of alcohol poisoning (in this case I’d hypothesize lung collapse or suffocation) FAR before you got to a point where you’d be effected.

    • iambu

      That is the ONLY way I’ll watch it.

    • Christopher

      I’m currently out. All I’ve got is copious amounts of alcohol and that would be a volatile combination at this point.

      So I’m getting snockered and having fun with you peeps! 🙂

    • stevenj

      Don’t waste your pot on trump.

      • Karl Dubhe

        I did say “if I can get stoned enough”. D’ya really think there’s enough pot in the world for me to get stoned enough? 🙂

  • Jean-Marc in Canada

    Good thing Flash and Black Lightning are on; Esteban love, love, LOVES his comic book hero shows and I do confess, they’re a mindless guilty pleasure. Speaking of mindless, I wonder if the media will be tripping over itself tonight to find reasons to say 45 is being “presidential” or Van Jones will, for the 4th time say that “tonight, Trump became President.” Come on, you KNOW I’m not wrong.

    • Lazycrockett

      How is Black Lightning Im interested, but damn I am watching way too many dc super hero tv shows.

      • Jean-Marc in Canada

        Truth be told, it’s solid and not at all shy about throwing race into the mix. It doesn’t hide the racism of whites, but it also doesn’t flinch at showing how some young blacks are doing their community wrong. It’s a great balance, solid cast (Cress Williams is HOT!) and the writing is tight. For the CW, it’s a departure from the other hero shows in that it doesn’t focus solely on the action, but takes it’s time and is deliberate in telling the story. IMO

        • Friday

          Thanks for something substantive on that. I’ve only seen an action trailer so far and there therefore wasn’t much to see. Just someone kicking a bunhc of arse in slightly-odd electrical ways. 🙂

          • Jean-Marc in Canada

            There is a good bit of action, but the majority of the show is focused on family, community and race issues: sometimes in your face, other times with more subtlety. I was hooked after the 1st episode.

      • houstonray

        And more coming. A new Metropolis superman prequel announced and SyFy has a new World of Krypton type series coming that takes place about 200 years before the planet blows up, so Superman’s grandparents. Ought to be interesting!

        If possible change the channel to a station not showing it, so you are giving the competition a ratings boost.

          Maybe LOGO for the Will and Grace reruns

      • houstonray

        AH YES!! Will definitely do that, change to another station that doesn’t have the speech or news programming. I like the LOGO idea!

    Great, my State Senator will soon be getting his worthless ass out of office in a futile attempt to beat Cuomo.
    Good riddance.
    P.S. Let me say this, no way on earth should Cuomo be the 2020 nominee, too much baggage and his enabling of DINOS to help Republicans keep control of our State Senate would hurt him and rightfully so.

      Don’t forget the carton of rotten eggs for the White House door.

  • Ragnar Lothbrok

    Ok, who’s having extra extra drinks ?

    Be honest.

    • Christopher

      There’s such a thing as EXTRA?

      I just assumed everyone drank excessively now.

    • halfwaythere

      I just made what may be the best margarita I’ve ever made. I should’ve gone low and just had cheap tequila – that’s all Trump is worth – but wow, is this yummy. Fresh lime muddled with agave syrup and decent anejo tequila, shaken with ice and strained into a BIG chilled martini glass.

      • safari

        I’m drinking cheap malt-margarita knockoffs.

        Because that’s the evening.

        • AmeriCanadian

          One of the (many) things I’ve come to appreciate living in Canada is that the pre-mixed drinks like Schmirnoff Ice and Mike’s Hard Lemonade are made with vodka instead of a malt. WAY better!

      • Ragnar Lothbrok

        Bourbon / mixer here. with green nipple
        (Twist of lime )

    • Lazycrockett

      Vodka.

      • Ragnar Lothbrok

        You are a good person

    • TampaDink

      Honestly, I’ve been consuming more alcohol since election night than I ever have….and for, this is significant.

      • Ragnar Lothbrok

        Tell me about it.
        My liver regenerated, aborted, tried again and said – More whisky please !

        • TampaDink

          I’ve begun contemplating which of my relatives I should ask for a liver transplant from.

      • halfwaythere

        Me, too. I’m a tad concerned….I have health issues this could impact and yet I can’t seem to stop.

        • Ragnar Lothbrok

          We should form a group.

        • TampaDink

          Same here. Every naughty thing that is bad for my health has become abused.

      • Menergy

        ditto

    • Menergy

      a good beer right now, saving the margarita for the heavy work…..(i.e., watching the rerun recording of the address, if I can make it through it.)

    Protestors booing Trump on his way from the White House

      Oou! Outside Capitol building too I hope

      • Lazycrockett

        Motorcade route.

          It’s a living.

      Well, we’ve never had a sexual predator, with as many indicted advisers, who didn’t win the popular vote give a SOTUniom before either.

    O/T but if we need a feel good story, this is an old photo (and the only G-Rated one I could find) of Chad Donovan & Antonia Maderia at the 2008 GVAs.
    They were a couple then and unlike so many of the other gay porn couples out there, are still a couple today, 17 years and counting.
    Kudos to them.

    • Leo

      OOouuu HHAHAHAHA

    • safari

      Her separation travel from him has already costed the taxpayers $700,000.

      • DaddyRay

        $830,000 when you add in the payment to Stormy

      • Leo

        Donald’s already spent Obama’s 8 in one year too by the way

    • David Walker

      Well, you know. He had to get there early for a sound check, and the techies needed to make sure the lights were right. Wardrobe needed to make sure his fly was zipped. Make-up needed to do a little orange touch-up. He’s a TV star. He has his audience. She had other fish to fry.

      • Lazycrockett

        Mel is “hosting” pre party.

        • David Walker

          That’s what the kids are calling it now?

    • Dreaming Vertebrate

      No doubt someone is upset about the $130,000 hush money the Dotard paid a hooker. Might be many more months of Stormy weather between those two.

    OK off to watch Will & Grace

  • Ninja0980

    O/T but since this came up the other night, did anyone else watch the series Cold Case on CBS?
    IMO, one of the best shows around and their LGBT episodes always hit the mark.

    • SoCalGal20

      Yes. I loved it! The music was great, too.

      Since they’re rebooting all shows ever that is one I definitely wouldn’t mind seeing a reboot of.

      • Ninja0980

        Same here, especially since we won’t get to see reruns or it on DVD due to Copyright issues with the music.

        • Reality.Bites

          How odd for a recent series. But don’t lose hope – they eventually managed to clear the music rights for a DVD release of WKRP in Cincinnati with original music,

      • Michael

        EVERY SINGLE SENTENCE HE STATES the GOP stands and cheers.

        It’s the most pathetic circle jerk scene I’ve ever seen.

        I just wish someone would clue him in he is NOT responsible for our current economic situation.

        • safari

          I will blame him deeply for the bubble that is about to pop

          • Michael

            Oh he’s going to be responsible for our economy, eventually and, yes, when the bubble bursts. Once his “tax cuts” actually take effect and the burden of giving so much money to the wealthy while making the middle class pay for it finally takes affect.

    • lenvus

      If they just didn’t have to clap every five-fucking-seconds. Well, it would still be miserable, but not as intolerable.

      • Michael

        YES – EVERY SINGLE SENTENCE.

        I mean, come on. It’s like circle jerking taken to a whole ‘nother dimension.

        • KarenAtFOH

          The shit he has on them must be horrific.

    • lenvus

      YES!!! They do this in the United Kingdom on a routine basis. Why we don’t do this here, I haven’t a clue. The circle jerk has to stop. We should boo as if discovering he has a third testicle or something.

      • Karl Dubhe

        That’s question period, it’s a staple in all parliaments in the British tradition. Teachers don’t like to take their students to see it, because they don’t want to give the little devils ideas. 🙂

        • lenvus

    • It is very difficult to terminate a federal worker after one year — he is trying to end this. It is similar to tenure that many teachers get. You usually have to go through postion elimination to remove them unless there are great violations at work. This is designed to protect workers against interference by politicians like Trump who might threaten them because of their perceived politics.

      I have no idea of the context, since I can’t watch him, but it’s a bit of wordplay, but not very clever. He doesn’t want Americans feeling a connection to people he wants to deport. After all, that’s one of the reasons nearly 80% of the public DISAGREES WITH HIM.
