Democrats Dig Themselves Into A Hole After Trump’s Speech
President Trump’s political opponents complain that he is petulant, extremist and divisive. Then they revealed themselves at the State of the Union — with the entire country watching — to be far more petulant, extremist and divisive than Trump. Touché.
Trump has many faults, but one of his unique abilities is to drive his opponents absolutely bonkers. That was nowhere more evident than Tuesday night, when Trump delivered what was by all estimations a very good speech. A CBS poll found that 75% approved of it, and CNN’s poll found that 70% had a positive reaction.
The resulting contrast between Trump’s speech and the Democrats’ childish antics in the House chamber that night was painful.
At one point, Trump stated the fact that black unemployment is at historic lows.
