No one with half a brain expected that anything that President Trump would say at his State of the Union address would be true, but it’s even worse than expected.
Trump seriously just tried to convince America that the prosperity and security of America are contingent upon Democrats ceasing their investigation into his administration’s criminal activities.

Pretending that national unity can only be achieved by eliminating the transparency of congressional oversight of one of the most corrupt administrations in modern American history, is as cynical and self-serving as it gets.
No wonder the people on the Democrat side of the chamber are sitting on their hands and frowning as Trump blathers on. With a start like that, we can expect that it will only get worse from here.
