Nothing wrong with the speech. Not very actionable in my opinion.


Among all ways he does not respect the presidency, he still respects the SOTU speech. His behavior before and after did not align with his comity theme, but I guess that’s to be expected. The pre-speech lunch with the TV anchors was probably who he really is.

The most divisive parts were the lecturing on the impact of oversight and investigation, an essential Congressional duty in a democracy. To be brave enough to call for civility was met with Pelosi’s equal bravery for the clap back, which I thought was entirely appropriate and a great Smithsonian-worthy moment in political history. I thought his moment with the New Democrat congresswomen was actually graceful.

He deserves no more doubt that “maybe he’s changing” after previously similar, almost civil Trump moments. He is who he is.
