There were two things that stood out for me during Trump’s State of the Union address.
The first was his need to laud the courage of others who were tested in situations his policies are exacerbating.
If Trump had one inch of the courage of the heroes he hid behind, we wouldn’t despise him so much – that he requires their acts of conscience to gloss over the lack of his, is the real story.
The second thing that stood out was his constant use of economic statistics to justify his first year in Office. Trump has injected the US economy with Meth in the form of inane corporate tax cut welfare and is now congratulating himself for the erratic heart beat and psychosis.
This address was billed as bipartisan but Trump doesn’t build bridges, he napalms them and then blames the fake media for pointing out he’s burnt them.
This is a man who will say Black on Monday, White on Tuesday and then by Friday scream that no one cares about colours.
