Morning Greatness: Pelosi Rips Up Trump SOTU, Sour Democrats Pout and Stew in Partisan Resentment

Good Wednesday morning.

Here is what’s on the president’s agenda today:

  • The president has lunch with the Secretary of Defense

State of the Union: Trump gives barn-burner speech, sour Democrats boycott, pout

Here is the full text but I recommend you watch it, it is worth it. President Trump delivered a real barn-burner speech, very pro-America. Some of the highlights included giving the great MahaRUSHi the Presidential Medal of Freedom, something no other Republican president would have the guts to do. Mega Dittos, Rush.

Other guests included Venezuela’s real president, Juan Guaido, a young girl who was surprised with a scholarship to the charter school of her choice, a family reunited by a soldier’s service overseas, the brother of a victim of an illegal alien harbored by a sanctuary city, the surviving family of terror victim Kayla Mueller, a Tuskegee airman and young child born premature who has flourished into a healthy toddler. But the Democrats  were sour, bitter, and cranky, sitting on their no-good fat asses. They would not stand and applaud the prosperous state of our union.

We are Americans. We are the pioneers. We are the pathfinders. We settled the new world, we built the modern world, and we changed history forever by embracing the eternal truth that everyone is made equal by the hand of Almighty God.

What’s not to love?

The most controversial moments of the night came when Trump refused to shake Nancy Pelosi’s hand. Pelosi sat there grinding her teeth during his speech, face paralyzed with Botox and when it was over, she ripped up the speech like a petulant little child. There were stories in there about Americans and the names of people who died and that nasty shrew just ripped up the speech. She’s disgusting.

Democrats finally release some of the Iowa caucus results

After a massive technical glitch or massage of the vote, the Iowa Democrats finally released some results from their tragic Monday caucus. With 71% percent of the precincts reporting, Sanders is ahead in the popular vote with 24 percent and Buttigieg with 21, Warren with 19 and sleepy Joe Biden with a pathetic 15 percent. The delegate count breaks down a little different since the Democrats have all kinds of machinations to make sure they have actual control over who the people choose. According to Fox News, the delegate count standings are, “Buttigieg with 26.9 percent and Sanders with 25.2 percent. Warren trailed with 18.4 percent and Biden was hovering in fourth with 15.4 percent, just ahead of Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar.”

When will we see the rest of the count? Who knows. Does anyone trust these results? New Hampshire is coming up next Tuesday where Bernie has the lead. Or does he?

Senate trial will acquit Trump today for the crime of winning the 2016 election

With a record high approval and terrific State of the Union performance, the Senate will vote to acquit President Trump for whatever it is they could muster up and belch out to the Senate for a trial. The vote will take place 4pm. I’m sure there is more up the Democrats’ villainous sleeve so stay tuned. It’s not over.
