2018 State of the Uniom Address

In which Trump becomes Presidential, boasts about the stock market, and trots out some token minorities that mine coal or run small businesses. I am told that the names of donors will be flashed on the screen as a reward --I **** you not, WaPo is reporting this.

Show starts at 9EST on nearly every channel and all over the internet. Fox News and CNN will be doing pre-game at like 5 or whatever. Followed by JFKIII giving the Democratic response. Maxine Waters will also be giving a response on BET, because having more than one response is a thing now I guess. Justice RBG is apparently going to skip this because why not.

I've never missed a SOTU as long as I can remember, but this year I'm just going to play Skyrim instead bc I'm just not feeling it. Can you guys who are watching post here if something interesting happens?

Re: 2018 State of the Uniom Address

When Trump has a script, he sticks to it. I hope he goes off on Mexicans, Muslims and the media and turns into some rambling incoherent mess up there for entertainment value.

Not gonna happen. Trump reads a speech and everybody claims that this is the day he became POTUS.

Hosting an event at our home to support Planned Parenthood while this is happening tonight. Timing wasn't intentional but I'm pretty happy with it.

Re: 2018 State of the Uniom Address

Its worse than that, apparently they have 5(?!?!?!) people giving responses

Quote:
Sen. Bernie Sanders, Rep. Joe Kennedy, Virginia Delegate Elizabeth Guzman, former Rep. Donna Edwards, and Rep. Maxine Waters will respond to President Trump's State of the Union address Tuesday night. (AP)
I guess the republicans had 4 responses in 2014 as well, but pretty lol either way.

I hear they're not expecting much of a turnout since there is just a visitor's gallery.

Correct use of apostrophes is too obscure to even bother correcting.

Re: 2018 State of the Uniom Address

Bill Nye Does Not Speak for Us and He Does Not Speak for Science
Tonight, Bill Nye “The Science Guy” will accompany Republican Rep. Jim Bridenstine (R-OK), Trump’s nominee for NASA Administrator, to the State of the Union address. Nye has said that he’s accompanying the Congressman to help promote space exploration, since, he asserts, “NASA is the best brand the United States has” and that his attendance “should not be … seen as an acceptance of the recent attacks on science and the scientific community.”

But by attending the SOTU as Rep. Bridenstine’s guest, Nye has tacitly endorsed those very policies, and put his own personal brand over the interests of the scientific community at large. Rep. Bridenstine is a controversial nominee who refuses to state that climate change is driven by human activity, and even introduced legislation to remove Earth sciences from NASA’s scientific mission. Further, he’s worked to undermine civil rights, including pushing for crackdowns on immigrants, a ban on gay marriage, and abolishing the Department of Education.

As scientists, we cannot stand by while Nye lends our community’s credibility to a man who would undermine the United States’ most prominent science agency. And we cannot stand by while Nye uses his public persona as a science entertainer to support an administration that is expressly xenophobic, homophobic, misogynistic, racist, ableist, and anti-science.

Scientists are people, and in today’s society, it is impossible to separate science at major agencies like NASA from other pressing issues like racism, bigotry, and misogyny. Addressing these issues should be a priority, not only to strengthen our own scientific community, but to better serve the public that often funds our work. Rather than wield his public persona to bring attention to the need for science-informed policy, Bill Nye has chosen to excuse Rep. Bridenstine’s anti-science record and his stance on civil rights, and to implicitly support a stance that would diminish the agency’s work studying our own planet and its changing climate. Exploring other worlds and studying other planets, while dismissing the overwhelming scientific evidence of climate change and its damage to our own planet isn’t just dangerous, it’s foolish and self-defeating.
