10 Things the President Could Say to Drive the Left Even Crazier (2018 State of the Union Edition)

Part of the fun of Donald Trump’s presidency has been watching him strip the thin veneer of sanity away from the formerly “respectable” Left. Then again, how sane can anyone be who insists that the former Bruce Jenner is, in fact, a woman . . .

President Trump seems to understand the fun here. And along the way, it appears that he has taken some of our suggestions:  He has driven the Left nuts by defending Western Civilization, (a suggestion from our second list), and his administration is, in fact, cracking down on discrimination against Asian Americans at Harvard. (A suggestion in our first list). President Trump, meanwhile, has yet to take up our favorite suggestion—from a commenter on our first list, in fact—to “identify as a woman and claim to be the first female president.” Maybe he’s saving that one for Mother’s Day?

Tonight, however, we have the president’s first State of the Union. Even though the speech has been in the works for weeks, we humbly offer 10 very late additions to drive the Left even crazier. Because prime time is the right time. Here we go…

  1. With Democrats expected to have “Dreamers” as guests in the gallery, President Trump should be sure to have a line or two in his speech quoting Democrats on immigration. For example, he might cite Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, who once said, “When we use phrases like ‘undocumented workers,’ we convey a message to the American people that their government is not serious about combating illegal immigration.” He might also cite Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), who observed: “‘open borders’ is a Koch brothers proposal.”
  2. Continuing with the immigration theme, he should note, “It’s not right that the United States should take all of the best and brightest from Africa. That just makes inequality worse . . .”  
  3. He might also highlight the scandal of New York City taxi drivers refusing to pick up black CEOs on Wall Street. And then he should point out that most NYC cab drivers are from immigrant communities. Assimilation, it turns out, is essential for combating racism.
  4. Trump should quote the “Rev.” Jesse Jackson calling abortion “genocide” of black babies, and note the tendency of Planned Parenthood to put clinics in minority neighborhoods. He could also mention that Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger once gave a speech to the Ku Klux Klan. (Snopes can explain it away all they want—our understanding is we’re living under a kind of “one drop rule” for associating with racists.)
  5. Propose an “Alternative Maximum Tax” of 25 percent or 33.3 percent of income in any given year. Because some guys need to pay.
  6. Name check domestic terrorist Bill Ayers. Ask why President Obama commuted the sentence of the terrorist Oscar Lopez-Rivera.
  7. Call for a commission of historians to study a century of Soviet or Russian efforts to influence American politics, from Hollywood to the anti-fracking movement and beyond—including Russian efforts to undermine Trump after the election.
  8. Call his infrastructure bill the “National Recovery Act” to “Make America Great Again.” Borrow Roosevelt’s logo from the original NRA.
  9. End Justice Department use of “disparate impact.” Discrimination is terrible, but, as scientists always remind us, correlation is not causation.
  10. Invite Howard Root and victims of John Doe in Wisconsin as well as other targets of abuse by government employees to be his special guests at the State of Union. Then mention that while he is a big supporter of private sector unions, he plans to rescind President Kennedy’s executive order allowing federal government workers to bargain collectively. And, of course, he should quote Franklin Roosevelt’s opposition to unionizing government workers in the first place.

  • Trump should count the vast media opinion shows as in-kind contributions reportable to the FEC and wonder aloud if big money should be taken out of politics altogether, as liberals like to complain about Citizens United.

    • Yes! All during Campaign ’16 I kept thinking the exact same thing. The WaPo and NYT were (still are) Dem party broadsheets pre and simple.

  • Trump should rename the RAISE Act introduced by Senators Cotton and Purdue “The Barbara Jordan Immigration Act to Make America Great Again.”

    Lefty heads would explode and it would force the recommendations of the Jordan Commission into the public consciousness.

    • ^^^THIS^^^
      “For immigration to continue to serve our national interest, it must be lawful. There are people who argue that some illegal aliens contribute to our community because they may work, pay taxes, send their children to our schools, and in all respects except one, obey the law. Let me be clear: that is not enough.”
      “…it is both a right and a responsibility of a democratic society to manage immigration so that it serves the national interest.”
      “There is a word for this process: Americanization. That word earned a bad reputation when it was stolen by racists and xenophobes in the 1920’s. But it is our word, and we are taking it back. Americanization means becoming a part of the polity — becoming one of us. But that does not mean conformity. We are more than a melting pot; we are a kaleidoscope, where every turn of history refracts new light on the old promise. … the cultivation of a shared commitment to the American values of liberty, democracy and equal opportunity.”

  • 1) He should read the memo out loud. 2) He should tell the Dreamers who are so proud to flaunt their illegal status that ICE will be meeting them at the door on the way out.

    • Google offereing to people of all ages 99 US dollars per/hr to do job working off of a home computer ..

  • I agree with whoever it was on Twitter that suggested that Trump read a couple of chapters from Clinton Cash during the SOTU.

  • He should announce the end of CMS price fixing for Medicare. Allow prices to float incentivizing providers to compete on price and quality.

  • Announce a major initiative to combat climate change and simultaneously improve the reliability of the U.S. electric grid by increasing investment in developing Generation 3 and 4 nuclear reactor technology as well as extending “green” tax subsidies to nuclear power plants.

      • Take a second and think deeply. Coal and natural gas are about as efficient as they’re ever going to get but they emit lots of CO2, the bane of climate alarmists, so you can’t say investing in more coal and natural gas will “combat climate change” (if you believe in that, which progressives and greenies do) because it does nothing to reduce CO2 emissions. Nuclear power emits no CO2, is extremely efficient, produces no pollution and very little waste, and generates electricity 24/7 which wind and solar don’t. Greenies also hate nuclear power as much as they hate CO2. The point of these comments is to suggest things the President could announce in the SOTY address that will be good for America and cause Democratic heads to explode. Take two of their shibboleths, combine them, and watch Democrats eat their young: “Nuclear power to combat climate change”

      • Would it be OK if I converted this comment into a stand-alone article for publication on my website?

        There is no fee, I’m simply trying to add more content diversity for the site and I liked what you wrote. I’ll bed sure to give you complete credit as the author. You can learn more about Writer Beat by checking out my profile (my email and the website address are there…trying avoid spam guard) or just say “sure” and I’ll handle the rest.

  • Brag about Black and Hispanic unemployment levels. Announce that Trump is determined to drive those unemployment levels for US citizens even lower.

  • This is a complete waste of words and time. That is 10 minutes I will never get back.

  • Don’t give it. He is not obligated and if some members are unwilling to hear the President’s remarks, screw them all.

  • I liked this tweet from Sean Spicier re: the Dem responses.

    Democrats have State of the Union rebuttals for every part of their base except the dead voters.

  • Revoking JFK’s executive order unionizing federal employees would be a blockbuster, and would channel Scott Walker’s great move to do the same in Wisconsin, with huge economic benefits to everyone except union bosses. Add major civil service reform to that, and he would be one of our greatest presidents ever.
    I think he should go after the global warming cult as well. There is a ton of available ammunition to use on that one.

  • Trump did well. Throwing in the name of MLK along with Washington, Lincoln, and Jefferson was bone-headed. But overall, Trump did a great job.

  • The federal government should pull back funding from all colleges that support or participate in the Boycott, Divestment & Sanctions movement (BDS) against Israel as such actions are not only antisemitic but likely violations of the anti-boycott laws.
