Trump’s first joint session congressional address was well received by viewers. A CNN poll found 78% of respondents viewed Trump’s speech favorably.

Political pundits from across the spectrum are weighing in and reactions didn’t fall cleanly down the party line, either.

Take Van Jones for example:

Jones called Trump’s tribute to a fallen Navy SEAL “one of the most extraordinary moments we have ever seen in American politics — period.”

Chris Wallace:

Wallace likened Trump’s speech to Reagan calling it, “one of the best speeches in that Senate I’ve ever heard any president give.”

Rachel Maddow:

No big surprise here. Maddow suggested Trump was disconnected from his own policies.

James Joyner:

Sen. Bernie Sanders:

Sen. Sanders decided the best way to rebut Trump’s speech was to focus on what he didn’t say.

Toure:

Not sure how he figures this seeing as Trump repeatedly called for unity and his speech had a little something for everyone — a massive infrastructure spending plan, paid family leave, Obamacare reform, etc.
