WATCH LIVE: State of the Union Address

WATCH LIVE: State of the Union Address

Theme of success, with Rush Limbaugh as special guest.

Trump’s third State of the Union Address begins tonight around 9 PM ET. You can watch live below and this post will be continuously updated with the latest.

It should be a good time, seeing as impeachment deliberations continue. Despite or in spite of the lower house circus, Trump’s approval ratings hit an all time high.

Earlier today, Mike blogged about what we can expect to hear in tonight’s SOTU. We’re told it’s going to be remarkably low key, there will be no mention of the big “I” in the room, and Trump will focus on “relentless optimism.”

Reports are that Rush Limbaugh will be in attendance at the invitation of Trump, and that Trump will announce he is awarding Rush the Medal of Freedom.

Yup, there he is, a bearded and thin-looking Rush next to Melania.

[Rush Limbaugh and Melania Trump, SOTU 2020]

Watch Live:


Rush did not look well tonight. Happy, but not well, as Trump acknowledged him, and Melania put the Medal of Freedom around his neck.

Mitch McConnell, and two of his greatest accomplishments, Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh, all got shout outs.

Thanks Professor for the thread.

Nancy is about to chop on her dentures so hard that they fly out of her mouth!

See that the DEMS are celebrating their KKK by dressing in white again!

Nikki Haley

& the Dems who chose to boycott the SOTU. When you represent people, your job is not to just do the things you like. It is to rep ALL people. Listening to the issues by the Pres is your job. Maybe someone else should step in who is willing to do the job that you aren’t.

    No, it isn’t their job, and their constituents don’t expect it of them. And I’d much rather they stay away than make a disgrace of themselves as did so many of their colleagues who attended. If you don’t know how to behave at such an event, don’t go.

Nancy Pelosi and her paper shuffling. Witch doesn’t miss a trick.

    Should’ve whacked Nancy upside the head with her binder.

    Shoulda done what I did: hang a towel over the tv on the right side, blocking out pelosi.

    It’s still hard to believe those Jew-hating maggots omar and tlaib are elected to congress.

    Poor Rush: he deserves the best, and it’s heartbreaking to see him ill.

The left is despicable. Trump lists positive after positive and these despicable Democrats remain seated and mute.

    He’s zinging the “previous administration” by using that term when he contrasts his achievements with the lack of anything good from the “previous administration.”

    Keep up the zinging.

    The snub of Nan’s extended hand was terrific, just terrific.

    Besides, Trump was being cautious. She mighta have had one of the Russian poison devices in her palm.

    fscarn in reply to fscarn. | February 4, 2020 at 10:28 pm

    SanFranNan continues her reading. I think it’s Bonfire of the Vanities and she’s at the part where Sherman McCoy and his girlfriend get mugged by a minority criminal, a product of the Democrats’ Great Society welfare programs.

He needs to add that under his administration there have never been a deeper ocean of liberal tears also.
I hope he announces the Medal of Freedom for Rush Limbaugh during the speech also.

Too good not to pass along.

FrankieZee says:

So you are a minority who finally has been able to get a descent paying job and Trump talks about it, all the Republicans get up and clap, and you have the DEMORATS sitting on their ARSES. I wonder how that makes the minorities feel.

Pelosi just violated protocol by not giving traditional State of Union introduction: “Members of Congress, I have the high privilege and distinct honor of presenting to you the President of the United States.”

She said: “Members of Congress, the president of the United States”

    Pelosi is dying inside! Just saw her start muttering to herself!

    Trump is breaking her with every single sentence!

    As the camera pans across the sour faces of democrats……he’s breaking them too!

I think Pelosi is “chewing nuetronium

Looks like he was telling Roberts what a crap job he did on the Senate trial.

The disgusting outburst just now from the Dem Women in White Brigade made me furious. Who do they think they are???

He’s really laying it on thick. Grinding it into the dems faces hard.

Good, they deserve it.

President Trump should give Nancy Peelosi a coloring book and some crayons at the next SOTU. She looks like she is looking a restaurant menus.

This SOTU has been a major F*** you to every democrat. And he hasn’t even mentioned impeachment. Yet.


With Pelosi’s deliberate distractions, etc., I wish the Senate were larger so it could be held there.

Or heck, out on the lawn…. Plenty of room for seats.

    oldgoat36 in reply to Close The Fed. | February 4, 2020 at 10:57 pm

    Tradition has it held in the House, but there is no requirement that it be done there.
    Seeing Pelosi with her facial ticks, denture checks, strange head movements filled me with sadness that this Country could ever allow such a vile human being to hold any office, let alone one of power.
    Given the partisan treatment, and that the Turtle allowed this farce to go beyond the SOTU, I felt Trump would have been justified in changing venue. Why give honor to a place where Schiff is lauded for his lies, where Nadler and Pelosi schemed to effect a coup?
    Let’s all hope we never have to see Pelosi in the Speaker’s seat at another SOTU.

Epic curb stomp!

Is it traditional for the Speaker to ostentatiously tear up his or her copy of the speech when it reaches its conclusion?

Or was it yet another example of Democrat pettiness?

    Good job Nancy, Your just ripped the democrat party into pieces.

    Impeach Nancy Pelosi NOW

      Greg1 says:

      They thought it would embarrass Trump to give the speech before the acquittal.

      All it did was give an even bigger audience the chance to tune in and see Trump telling all the good things going on that the media won’t report about, watch Trump being Presidential, and watch democrats behave horribly.

      Massive backfire for democrats. Huge.

I just watched Pelosi, at the end of SOTU, tear up her copies of the President’s speech. What a pitiful, limited cretin.

    stablesort in reply to Romey. | February 4, 2020 at 11:12 pm

    …and the look on her face was so confident that Trump would be disappointed at her little show and then her face fell when Trump never turned around.

Nancy Pelosi tore up the speech at the end. Pure class, all the way.

Is Il Duce Pelosi on drugs or something? I know she would love to see President Trump disgraced, but her facial ticks, her continual odd head movements, her continual checking on her dentures, all just reminds me of a person I knew who was addicted to various chemicals.
I don’t blame POTUS for not shaking her hand. Her unconstitutional actions against him deserves an even stronger response than just snubbing a handshake with that vile creature.
I though he gave an excellent speech. I am always taken aback with the left in particular refusing to applaud things which reflect American Greatness. I get it that this a big political show, and parties tend to sit on their hands through much of an opposing President’s key points, but there were so many times when it was so inappropriate to withhold applause for things like improved unemployment numbers for every demographic.
This is Trump’s economy. We lived through the Obama years and were told this is as good as it gets, then Trump reverses the trend through his actions. Just as Reagan had done to reverse the malaise of the Carter disaster.
I hope that this is the last time Pelosi will be sitting behind any President for a SOTU address. She deserves to be reduced to nothing status, less than even minority leader.

She obviously can’t control the gumming mouth movements, since she made them throughout with millions of of people watching. She must have been told how gormless that looks.

And her reaction when Trump refused to shake her offered hand was to grin, flirt with the air/audience (yes, she does this all the time) and then… start gumming!

Fantastic SOTU speech. At least a 9 out of a possible 10 on a zero to 10 scale, and I can see scoring it a 10+.

On the other hand, Speaker Pelosi did what I thought was impossible–scoring in negative numbers. Her face during much of the speech said, “This very same speech should be being given here by Hillary,” and other times was just plain ungracious. And, then, ripping up her copy of the speech while the President is standing in front of her????? Damn, Pelosi has one of the diseases of old age—the loss of filters.

I guess Rush was expecting him to announce the PMF, but he looked shocked when it was presented on the spot.

Hat tip Reddit:

That speech was about America doing well.

It was about the American people living better because of the booming economy.

And she ripped it up.

Comanche Voter | February 4, 2020 at 11:32 pm

Now cut the old girl some slack. Yes she ripped up his speech. But if she had done what she really wanted to do, she woulda rubbed the pieces on her backside. So she did show some restraint.

What a silly bint.

When it was announced that Rush was being awarded the Medal of Freedom, my first reaction was uh-oh. Now, tonight, with Rush arriving in a wheelchair (which we did not know at first), and then seeing him in a suit that clearly is now too large for him, in addition to Melania awarding the Medal of Freedom, my initial thoughts are this is not good. Although Rush downplayed his illness to his audience, I have this horrible feeling that he knows his time is limited. He has millions of listeners pulling for him, and miracles do happen. Let’s hope Rush finds his.

notamemberofanyorganizedpolicital | February 4, 2020 at 11:47 pm

Best camera angle of Nancy shredding the Constitution…er…
President Trump’s SOTU speech.

I think Pelosi was doing her 2019 tax returns. The way she went back and forth over the same sheets has to be a tax return. Then the poor woman tore it up! Oh well, there is always TurboTax.

A small cluster of Democrats including Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar and Mark Pocan don’t stand for Charles McGee, the former Tuskegee Airman introduced by Trump

WTH? Even from their point of view, how does this make any sense?

That isn’t a good start to a working relationship.

Comanche Voter | February 5, 2020 at 8:56 am

I’m surprised that “Nan The Ripper” didn’t stroke out right in front of the House. She was really ticked off–and showed it.

I’m a reformed liberal who always voted Democratic but admired many Republicans over the years such as Jack Kemp, Orin Hatch, and Alan Simpson to name a few. But I will never go back. I don’t even recognize the Democratic Party now. Hopefully the adults will take control and, as a Republican, I will be able to find a few Democrats to admire.
