Last Night . . .

We followed our customary habit of watching anything but the State of the Union Address, preferring to get the digested material later. but I hear it was "An excellent speech, extremely well delivered," and that it received 75% approval ratings:
Even the Democrat-controlled media can’t deny it:
Three in four Americans who tuned in to President Trump’s State of the Union address tonight approved of the speech he gave. Just a quarter disapproved.
Eight in 10 Americans who watched tonight felt that the president was trying to unite the country, rather than divide it. Two-thirds said the speech made them feel proud, though just a third said it made them feel safer. Fewer said the speech made them feel angry or scared. . . .
Nine in 10 Republicans said the speech made them feel proud, while just over half of Democrats said it made them feel angry. Independents who watched the speech — nearly half of whom counted themselves the President’s supporters — tended to approve of the speech, and said it made them feel proud.
. . . Rep. Luis Gutierrez, walked out of the speech when Republicans began chanting, “USA! USA! USA!”
Then again, there may be a certain bias in who chose to watch it. Certainly the Democrats in the chamber were unhappy:  5 Things Democrats Refused To Applaud During SOTU
1. The National Anthem
2. ‘In God We Trust’
3. Tax Cuts
4. Record Low In Black Unemployment
5. Veterans 

But there were some things they did approve of: Stacy McCain assembles A few headlines from
Democrats Bringing More Than Two Dozen Illegal Aliens to Trump’s SOTU
Rep. Paul Gosar: I’ve Asked Capitol Police, Jeff Sessions to Arrest ‘Any Illegal Aliens’ Attending Trump’s SOTU
New York Times: Immigrants Are Superior to Americans and Their Kids
‘Dreamers’ Arrested for Human Smuggling — Twice in Two Days
11 Democrats to Boycott Trump’s State of the Union Address — 49 Fewer than Snubbed Inauguration
That's some great optics there.

Nancy Pelosi looked like she was sucking on a lime:
