Donald Trump’s State Of The Union last night was pretty damn similar to his Inauguration Day – full of lies and pathetic brags. The aftermath is even more shameful, as Trump and his team are doing everything in their power to boast about a president who has the lowest ratings in modern history.
Earlier today, the White House reminded everyone that it loves bragging about Trump’s inadequacy and failures when it sent out a mass email, which was prefaced with “ICYMI” (in case you missed it). In the email, it promoted an article by conservative outlet the Daily Caller, which tried to compliment Trump but actually insulted him instead. The Daily Caller article was titled, “Trump Breaks Nearly All Applause Records on State of the Union Addresses.” The article also included a 5-minute montage of attendees clapping for Trump (barf). The Daily Caller wrote:
President Donald Trump broke nearly all records for a modern State of the Union address, generating 115 rounds of applause as he addressed the nation for his first official review of his presidency, according to a Daily Caller News Foundation review.”
This brag is almost as bad as Trump complimenting himself on his crowd sizes on Inauguration Day. It’s hilarious that Trump’s own team in the White House can’t seem to compliment him without putting a little bit of an insult in there. If Trump didn’t break any records, why even mention it?! The White House pretty much advertised that Trump had lost to former President Bill Clinton, who had 128 rounds of applause.
But what is most shameful above all, is how many times Trump clapped – directly into the microphone – for HIMSELF. Here’s a brilliant montage of those awful moments, which is a far more accurate portrayal of Trump’s State Of The Union:
