On Tuesday evening, President Donald Trump gave his first State of the Union speech. While not being the biggest Trump fan in the world, I by and large enjoyed the nearly hour and half speech.
The President touched on all the major policy areas one would have expected. He talked about the economy, unemployment, taxes, wages, national security, highlighted some of the natural disasters the country faed with last year and how we’re stronger as a nation because of it. He touched on the hot button issue of the day, immigration. There were no real surprises. Unlike his campaign speeches, he stayed on point, and didn’t go off in tangent after tangent. Also, unlike his campaign speeches, he read it off the teleprompter.
But as with anyone with more than two braincells knows, the State of the Union is political theater of the highest accord. I mean, the party of the president giving the speech stands up and applauds 2,000 times throughout the speech.
Then as part of the political theater, the opposing party trots out, who they feel is a rising star in their party, to deliver a response to the State of the Union. This time, the individual the Dems chose was Rep. Joseph Kennedy. Yes, of that Kennedy family.
Kennedy’s speech was really everything you thought it would be – Democratic talking points, meant to draw a sharp contrast between the Republicans and Democrats. Not a terrible speech, but definitely meant for the Democratic base.
However, conservative commentator Tomi Lahren felt the need to make her feelings about Kennedy’s speech known. Did she deliver an articulate, well-thought out response, detailing why Kennedy’s ideas will take our nation in the wrong direction? If you said yes, then you must have no idea of Tomi Lahren’s work.
No, instead she responded by posting a video of herself where she calls Kennedy “a little limp d**k.”
Classy stuff, no doubt.
The Fox News contributor has since apologized for her vulgar and frankly, stupid remarks.
But the questions have to be asked, what could have she been thinking? What could she have been gained for posting this? And why is she always so anger? I mean, her guy is in the White House.
Perhaps this gives her more material for her Final Thoughts segments: Tomi gives us her opinion on the liberal outrage about her conservative outrage about the Democratic response to President Trump’s State of the Union speech.
Keep it classy, Tomi and that’s my final thought.
