Speech Dubbed “First #SOTU of the Tweetstorm Age”
President Donald J. Trump gave the shortest State of the Union address in the history of the United States last night to a joint session of Congress and nearly a dozen Americans watching on live television.
Pundits have dubbed it “The First #SOTU of the Tweetstorm Age.”
Prior to the address, Trump’s staff released the text to the media:
We got the car out. Finally. We were incredibly thankful to Mr. Jackwagon for rolling down his window and scolding us about the vehicles pulled off to the side with their hazards on. In blizzard conditions.
Dear Mr. Supreme Jackwagon:
You know who you are.
You’re the guy who just drove past me and four other people who were trying to get a car unstuck at the entrance to a side street right off of 17th Avenue South, Fargo.
In blizzard conditions.
You’re the guy who did not stop to help. You’re the guy who, instead, took the time to lower your power driver’s side window and yell, in a menacing voice as you drove on by, “Hey, you can’t just park your cars in the middle of the street!”
The Trump administration tried to pitch “clean fossil fuels” during a global climate change convention this week. The world is laughing at the USA. Again.
Other Nations Laughing – Literally – But Not in Good Humor
The world is laughing at us. Maybe not all of us, the people, but definitely at Donald Trump’s USA, especially when it comes to climate change.
If you doubt it, listen to the laughter at his surrogate during this final week of COP24, where he told people the Trump administration believes “clean” fossil fuels will play a significant role in the world’s energy future.
COP24 is more formally known as the 24th Session of the of the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. The convention of nations, convened in Katowice, Poland, comes on the heels of two science-based global warming and climate change reports on the already devastating impacts and dire projections for the future.
Despite that, the Trump administration chose to use the occasion to talk about coal and oil.
Stop Congressional Republicans from Breaking OUR Social Contract – We refuse to be hoodwinked again.
Stop Congressional Republicans from Breaking OUR Social Contract
Sen. Robin Hoodwink, R-U.S., is at it again.
Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., Senate majority leader, errand boy for the rich and entitled, and Hoodwink’s primary spokesperson (a.k.a., misdirector), stood up last week and declared, with gusto, “Entitlements are the reason the federal debt is running wild!”
He shouted something like this throughout the great halls – and to Bloomberg News – mere months after his party handed a $1.5 trillion tax cut to the wealthiest among us.
