Media, Democrats, flabbergasted by Trump's speech to Congress

Chris Cillizza:
Winners and losers from Trump’s big speech

This may have been the best speech Trump has given since he entered politics in June 2015, and people rooting for his imminent demise may be disappointed.
Of course, the so-called fact-checkers tried to nit pick the well-received speech.  They seem to have a problem distinguishing facts from opinions.

Roger L. Simon noted the Democrats discomfort:
...
The Democratic Party members watching that speech looked like a party of the living dead. They didn't know how to react. They didn't know if they were Americans. They didn't know who they were.

Every time Trump called for bipartisanship for the good of our country, they winced. They couldn't stand it and didn't know how to react because they are the least bipartisan people in the world and they scarcely know what cooperating is. Working together is not in their natures. Yes, they talk about it endlessly but they never do it. (See: the history of the Soviet Union) Maybe it's not in their DNA. (I should check mine.)

When the speech was over -- after there was no longer a dry eye in the house from the introduction of the widow of the Navy SEAL -- they left the room faster than fans of the losing team after the Super Bowl, only in this case they left so stunned you had to wonder if they would ever win the game again or even compete.

The Democrats -- the silly ladies dressed in white and all the others -- bet the house that Trump would make a fool of himself and Donald cut the legs out from under them. And when you bet the house and lose, you go home bankrupt. And without a home to go to.
...
Their strategy in dealing with the Trump presidency is to make the US ungovernable.  That will be much harder fro them after this speech.  They may still pursue that objective but they will likely pay a heavy price with the voters.

  1. He took almost every single ugly meme they've spun against him** and shot each one point blank in the head. I haven't seen their response but I suspect they already FAILed.

    ** - I would have liked to hear something about the space program / science in general.
