If not, what did you watch? Or do?
I watched both the SOTU and the Democratic Response, voted "other - please explain."
Both ended up what I thought they would be, mostly towards their respective bases with very little substance and filled to the brim with distortions if not outright lies. If it is not Trump lying about the wall's influence on crime in El Paso, it was Abrams being misleading on wage growth and manufacturing.
This is where we are... drawing division setting the stage for 2020.
Honestly, I tried watching it and got through most of it until the end when I started nodding off. Then when Stacey Abrams came on, it was over and I was a goner. Nothing on either of them, I was really tired and speeches always have that effect on me.
I thought the speech was good. I knew I wouldn't agree with some things like Trumps views on immigration but overall I liked the message and I wish he could act like that the majority of the time.
He spent about fifteen minutes telling us that Mexicans were coming to kill and rape you, your family, your dog and your mailman.
Trivia night at the pub...of course my team won...free beer. I'm not gonna miss that.
Most of it. The part that stood out the most was him begging Congresss not to investigate him.
